Why Hearing Protection? Why ER20HD Safety Ety-Plugs?
Noise-induced hearing loss is cumulative and irreversible. It is also completely preventable. A recent study by the World Health Organization found over a billion young people are at risk of noise-induced hearing damage. Regular use of ETY-Plugs helps protect you from the effects of over exposure to loud sounds.
ETY-Plugs use a proprietary tuned resonator and acoustic resistor to replicate the natural response of the ear canal. Sound is reproduced unchanged, as the ear would hear it, only quieter.
Standard foam earplugs reduce mid-range and high-frequencies resulting in muffled speech and music. ETY-Plugs reduce sound levels evenly, preserving clarity of speech and communication, and awareness of your surroundings.
ETY-Plugs are available in 2 sizes: Standard and Large fit. Both provide approximately 20dB sound reduction when worn properly.
Standard size fits the majority of users. Not for use with gunfire, or while sleeping or swimming.
Insert the plug by grasping the end cap and inserting the eartip until the largest flange is sealed in the ear canal entrance. To ease insertion, moisten the plug and pull the ear outward and upward. Earplugs must be inserted correctly for optimal effectiveness.
Remove with a slow twisting motion. Wipe clean after use with a damp cloth. Do not immerse earplugs in water or clean with harsh chemicals.

Of course, I'm assuming they used the same tips.
Very easy to carry around in its pouch, just throw them in the pouch and rock and roll (in a much quieter and safer listening level).
They do block a decent amount of noise level though I was expecting a little more. Some people say that they hear people better when having these on, I can't say the same. I do hear a bit of muffling and of course the reduced volume.
As for fit, pull your ear upwards and plug them in so I know I got my fit right (hopefully). I'm used to the fit of these eartips so I knew what I was getting myself into. Newcomers may find some discomfort in the materials used from the first few uses. Just be sure to not just shove them in your ear.
Though I was expecting a little more isolation and clarity in people's voices, these are in no way a bad product and a bad investment. Save your ears, and get yourself some!
