How to protect your hearing at music festivals
Festival season is finally upon us. You bought your tickets, reserved a hotel, prepped your outfits, and finalized your game plan. The only thing left to do is pack your stuff and brace yourself for days of jamming out.
As you assemble your festival essentials, don’t forget to throw in a pair of earplugs. And yes, we know what you’re thinking. Ear plugs are not cool and might potentially destroy the outfit you so carefully planned. But you know what’s also not cool? Tinnitus.
Unless you want to experience ringing in your ears after being exposed to epic levels of noise, you should highly consider sporting earplugs, like the EarDials. Right now, you can get a pair for on sale for only $19.99 at the Mashable Shop.
Specifically designed for loud music environments, EarDials filter harmful sound decibels so you can enjoy the music, chat with your friends, and continue having a good time, which is why you went to the festival in the first place. It has a companion mobile app which informs you of the sound level around you and how long you can stay in that particular area, so you know when it’s time to move away from the booming speakers.
You also don’t have to worry about getting weird looks for wearing earplugs. Thanks to their minimalist, low-profile design, they’re almost invisible once you put them on. Plus, they’re made out of soft hypoallergenic silicone with earwax protection, making them comfortable to wear for hours on end.
And now for the best part: If you decide to buy EarDials, you’re also supporting a good cause since 5% of the profits go straight to charities on a mission against tinnitus and other noise-induced hearing loss.
Right now, you can get the EarDial for only $19.99, 39% off the usual cost of $33. Not bad of a price if you’re protecting your hearing AND contributing to a good cause.
