So I go to a lot of LOUD concerts. I attend metal and hard rock shows so my ears can take a beating. I upgraded my plugs though the years by just picking up new ones at guitar center. Recently I know I probably needed an upgrade. I decided to go w Easgasm and after three loud shows I notice that the plugs protect your ears and allow for sound to not be lost as much as other “cheaper” ear plugs. I almost feel like “do I even have these in right”? So far I don’t have any complaints. Customer service is great. They respond right away and will help you answer any questions.
