They say good things come in small packages and nothing could be further from the truth when you’re talking about Eargasm Earplugs.
For the past five years I have been out shooting concerts using nothing more than those cheap disposable ‘squishy’ earplugs for protection, and while I was aware that better solutions were available, it just didn’t seem like a priority.
Of course, hearing protection is no joke, and this is especially true if you are standing in the photo pits of the worlds biggest bands with your eardrums getting hammered by the loudest music on the planet.
Once your hearing is gone, there’s no going back, so it pays to be diligent to the hearing protection you are using, and this can’t be more pertinent than if you’re a music photographer.
It was on a recommendation from a friend that I decided to purchase a pair of Eargasm Earplugs, and of course, I thought there would be a difference in the quality compared to the cheaper ones I had been using, but wow, I had no idea just how polarising that difference would be.
