- Designed to protect against Tinnitus (permanent ringing in the ears)
- You and your fellow percussionists are encouraged to use earplugs habitually
- Earplugs are made and used worldwide and the most reliable comparative system is the SNR number
- SNR stands for SINGLE NUMBER RATIO and is quoted in decibels dB
- The higher the SNR, the more noise is cut out.
- Some ear plugs with lower SNR are used to reduce noise without effecting the fidelity of the sound
