Sound Engineers

Sound Engineers

Musicians, the movie industry, the entertainment industry, and the audience all rely on good sound engineers. Ironically, a career capitalizing on hearing often leads those pursuing it to experience hearing loss and damage. Over 70% of sound engineers recognized their risk, with as many as 48% saying they had difficulty distinguishing voices in the background. Despite these alarming statistics, very few use hearing protection because they perceive it as an interference.

We get it. You want to hear clearly to ensure the entertainers, producers, audience, and everybody else is happy. But going without hearing protection jeopardizes your health and financial stability. Technological advances have enabled us to create hearing protection that lets you do your job more efficiently, and we have several options for you to consider.

Below, you’ll find two categories in the recommended products. The first set of options caters to people who need high-quality sound when listening to recorded material. (These should not be used for hearing protection.) The second set includes earplugs that provide adequate, OSHA-compliant hearing protection. We can help you decide which equipment would serve you best if you share your intentions and expectations.
