Ear Plugs

Howdy everyone,
I am wondering where i can find ear plugs that will filter but NOT completely block the sound. My gf doesnt like super loud music and I am taking her to the Vancouver show and ofcourse we got GA tickets so i am SURE it will be very loud. As for me bring it on! the louder the better!!!! But she wants to wear ear plugs but i don't want her to miss the sound experience either so I am wondering where i can get those ear plugs that still let in some noise. Thanks a billion!

Nico

During Elevation I brought earplugs and had them in my hand ready to insert as soon as U2 hit the stage. But about 20 or 30 minutes into the show I realized I'd gotten so excited that I had forgotten about the earplugs and I was still clutching them in my hand. What were once two wax plugs had become one big one. So I said just screw it, obviously I don't need them.

So I can't answer your question.

Check out this website. Then search on earplugs. They have several types that filter different dB levels, without muzzling the sound.

Here's another site with lots of info and options.

You're GA so why don't you get her to stand at the back, while you stand at the front.

I actually like the sound with ear plugs ON in an arena (at least the one we have in Phoenix). It has horrible sound otherwise. Not sure about the Glendale arena since it's the 1st concert I'm going to there.

I've worn Classic earplugs...little yellow jobs, for the LA and Anaheim shows...didn't miss a beat or thump on the bass!

And they only cost a buck!

I've got these. They're great. Cut down the volume but keep the sound clear. Reusable, too.

I wore the little foamy ones I got from Virgin Airlines and it blocked out a lot of the noise but didn't negatively impact the band at all. The next morning, my ears were very grateful, no ringing or anything. Try the drugstore, sometimes you can find a box of the foam ear plugs relatively cheap.

I use these:

They are inexpensive, washable, reusable and come with their own little storage case. And the music still sounds clear.
