But the sound quality suffered. The concert wasn't nearly as fun with a muddled, muted sound. It was like I was listening next door through the wall.
Then I found the Etymotic ER-20 earplugs. I was already a fan of their earphones, so it was a no-brainer to order these. I wasn't disappointed. The ER-20s are better than any earplug alternative at a concert. The reduce the volume equally across all frequencies, so that you don't loose the sizzle of the high frequencies.
My only wish is that Etymotic had a series of earplugs that different sound level dampening. The 20db is a bit much for some concerts. Or better yet, an adjustable pair of plugs where you could set different dampening levels.
