Musical Performance

Musical Performance

Damage to your ears incurred during musical performances can affect your ability to hear musical pitches. One disorder, Diplacusis, causes one ear to perceive a different pitch than the other, which can impact or end your career. Another condition, Hyperacusis, causes the person to feel pain and stress when exposed to extreme noise levels.

If this happens to you, you’re not alone. As many as fifty percent of professional musicians report hearing loss. Eighty percent report temporary hearing loss after a performance, and thirty-five percent report tinnitus. (This holds just as true for orchestral musicians as for rockstars, but few realize the damage until too late.) Tinnitus, or ringing of the ears, impacts sleep, mental and emotional health, and physical health. In short, not only do you lose the ability to perform perfectly, but you also sacrifice your physical and mental well-being.

Few musicians consistently use hearing protection of any kind, even though they know the risk. Neil Young, Barbara Streisand, and Chris Martin (the lead singer of Coldplay) report tinnitus related to their musical professions. Tinnitus effectively ended Grimes’ (a Canadian singer/songwriter) tour. Ayumi Hamasaki ignored her doctor’s instructions to avoid exposure to loud noises, eventually leading to her contracting Meniere’s disease, which led to complete deafness in one ear and other health problems, including depression and vertigo. These are just a few musicians that experienced hearing damage. Nobody wants bulky hearing protection that interferes with their ability to perform. Nor do they want to risk looking silly fumbling with their uncomfortable earplugs during a performance.

Our product’s revolutionary technology allows you to hear perfect pitch and your fans cheering without sacrificing your ear health. And they come in a custom-fitted earplug that fits your ear perfectly. The soft, medical-grade silicone material sits comfortably in your ear canal without irritation. It also won’t fall out mid-performance.

Recommended Products

We recommend our Chameleon Ears Pro-DECf Musician’s Earplugs. These specially designed earplugs offer several filtering options. Because stage lights generate so much heat, our filters provide a constant airflow that prevents occlusion and minimizes irritation in the ear canal.

Your other choice is Chameleon Ears™ PRO MFE (Musician Filtered Earplugs). These earplugs include patented filters and allow you to hear music and speech clearly while protecting your eardrum from harmful noise levels.
