From: $317.00

The most versatile and natural sounding hearing protector in the world. Bespoke custom fit ear plugs with a -17dB filter, designed to protect your (and only your) ears from hearing damage. The standard for amplified musicians, DJ’s, vocalists, sound engineers, clubbers and gig-goers.


Custom Hearing Protection designed for Musicians and Vocal Performers

PRO17 earplugs have the flattest response filter in the PACS PRO range. Designed specifically for musicians and vocal performers, the PACS Pro17 plugs give one of the most accurate responses of any hearing protector with flat 17dB protection across the board. Keeping all frequencies in check relative to one another means you get to hear the music just as it should sound – but 17dB quieter with no loss of high or low frequencies. Not only does the PACS Pro17 provide a balanced reproduction but, for vocal performers, its vented design reduces occlusion, giving your voice a more natural sound making the hearing protector more transparent, so you can concentrate on your performance.

The PACS Pro17: Complete Fidelity and the Flattest responses of any Hearing Protector

The PACS Pro17 has one of the flattest responses of any hearing protector worldwide, offering an accurate representation for anyone who requires complete fidelity from their ear plugs. With an average attenuation of 17dB, the PACS Pro17 is perfect for musicians and vocalists performing with amplification, as they can extend your safe listening time by more than 5 times. The PACS Pro17 keeps all the clarity of the music by attenuating evenly throughout the frequency spectrum so you can listen and perform hearing everything you usually would but at a lower, safer level.

Small form factor, special filter design, Comfort and Aesthetics. The PACS Pro17 has it all

The PACS PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. For starters, it’s smaller than many competing filters, meaning that it can fit into smaller ears without any protrusion – which is great for both comfort and aesthetics. The filters are also user-swappable, so you can chop and change as your environment demands to any other filter in the PACS PRO range, giving you complete control over your protection with just a single set of ear moulds. In addition, the PACS PRO series are water-resistant so they can be used outside or in high moisture environments and can withstand perspiration without it damaging the filter membrane.

PACS Pro17’s are Natural Sounding Earplugs

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you may have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head (this is what we call occlusion). This is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head, which usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal, this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage. This ensures that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all. The PACS PRO filters go one step further by being vented to allow sound to pass both ways, meaning that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter, providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.

Tailor-made Hearing Protection for the very best Fitting plugs

The PACS Pro17 ear plug is custom-made using soft medical-grade silicone, so you get the very best in isolation and fit, allowing you to wear them for hours at a time without fatigue or discomfort. Each earpiece is manufactured to the highest standards, ensuring you get a comfortable, discreet and effective hearing protection that can be fitted quickly, easily and securely every time.

Hearing protection tested and certified

PACS Pro17 ear plugs and filters have been tested and certified to EN352-2: The European Standard for ear plug hearing protectors, which is almost identical to the AS/NZS1270 standards.

    Super fast and friendly service, ready to answer any questions you have. They directed me to the closest place to get my ear impressions made, and then I had the custom earplugs within the week! They fit well, now just waiting for an event to use them at.

    I was pleasantly surprised on how small and comfortable these earpieces are. The whole experience dealing with Pacific Ears has been, what I believe “Excellent Customer Service” should be like.
    At every stage of the ordering and manufacturing process all my questions where fully answered.
    Everyone I dealt with were friendly and helpful. Advice was freely given, enabling me to choose the correct earpiece to suite all my needs. I highly recommend the company and this product.

    I ordered a pair Pro17’s a couple of years ago. They were absolutely amazing, and you managed to get them to fit inside my very small ears, which was remarkable! I would like another set.
    I’m loving my new pair of musician earplugs, they work beautifully! I would also like to order a set of Sleepsound earplugs now. Monique

    Excellent solution for those who want to protect their hearing. I love music, but I have to protect the hearing I have. The Pro 17’s are just the thing. They cut out all the harmful sound and let though the good.

    I’ve been meaning to let you know that I absolutely love my custom Pro17 earplugs I had made by you a few months ago 🙂
    I know there was a little tweaking needed initially; however, they are absolutely perfect now, and it has been a great investment to protect my ears. Thanks for the fantastic service and quality product. Kind regards, Ben L.

    A worthwhile investment for anyone attending live music events. Way comfier than using universal fit hearing protection, and far more natural sounding than universal options. Was very surprised at how fast the ordering/manufacturing process was. Props to Fleur for being very concise with the fitting locations instructions. Highly recommended.

    Blown away by the customer service at Pacific Ears. I needed custom hearing protection in a hurry as I was travelling abroad. The turnaround time was exceptional. I got the PACS Pro17 custom earplugs for concerts and nightclubs. They are really well made (I previously bought some from a competitor and was not impressed) and fit perfectly. Thanks!
