The Planet Waves Pacato hearing protection is a reusable, universal sized audio filter designed specifically for musicians and music enthusiasts. While other hearing protection can sound muffled and unnatural, the Pacato filters provide full frequency, enjoyable audio at safe listening levels. The exclusive design offers an open air passage to the ear, minimizing occlusion effect (low frequency emphasis), while keeping the ear ventilated for unmatched comfort.
I love these Picato Musicians earplugs. It lowers the sound in the ear, but does not change the tone or quality. It is as if your ear is not right next to the violin where the closeness can cause hearing issues for some people. It is not muffled like with foam earplugs. You can still hear it plain as day, just not at a volume that would cause hearing issues. The sound itself is not altered. It comes with two different sized pairs of plugs. You just put that little insert thingy into the size you need, the case is very convenient. I would recommend these for anyone playing violin or viola. I would also recommend Fiddlershop as a first stop when searching. If you don’t find what you need, call and see if they can get it.
This was an amazing purchase. I had my doubts but once I tried them they are amazing. I needed something to protect my ears while practicing on my violins and it works wonders. They feel soft and very comfortable they allow me to still listen at a comfortable tone without hurting my ears, especially the left side. This is by far the best hearing protection for a musician.
