MUSICIAN

Love em! Using them in a live band setting was far better than any other off- the- shelf set I’ve used in the past. These sound great and block the harsh extra dbs.
I could hear everything on stage, I could sing without it sounded plugged up and ZERO buzzing or ringing after the show.

Highly recommended! I’ve tried all sorts in all kinds of price ranges. None of them came close to these dBuds!

DJ

Mike Stellar, DJ and producer.

Thank you, these earplugs literally changed my life!
I can now DJ without the ringing ears and headache the day after.

TINNITUS

I have the tinnitus and some hearing loss due to the place where I live now (Milano, Italy), and some Urban sounds hurt my ears every day. The dBud arrived this morning and today is the first day since the tinnitus started that I don’t feeling any pain at my ears when I walk freely in the streets!
It feel good and work perfectly and from today onward they will be in my EDC Forever! Thanks!

OFFICE

I work in a busy area and office, so this helped me work more efficiently. I suffer from Meniere’s Disease and this helps me eliminate the outside noise and hear a speaker in a meeting or lower loud sounds so it’s tolerable for my hearing.

Highly Sensitive Person

I am a HSP person. High sensitive that is. I cannot filter all the noise. So thanks to these Dbuds I can now go through life without all the noisy triggers and still be able to hear my kids and do nice things with them.

PRODUCTION PLANT

I ran them past our Health & Safety advisor and he was more than happy with the level of noise reduction.
I work in a noisy plastic injection moulding plant and find them excellent for reducing the noise, without causing an issue in communication between other staff members. Found them comfortable for the entire shift.
Having worked in Post Production sound for over 24 years and being exposed to loud audio on the various mix stages, it took its toll over time. I now have tinnitus, the ringing of the ears and so whenever I go anywhere that is a noisy environment, it makes the tinnitus worse. So I bought the dbuds and I use them and they have helped me so much! I used them every day. I have told other friends and veterans, who suffer from tinnitus about these as although Tinnitus cannot be cured, at least we can prevent it from getting worse.

when you first get them, you need to 'carefully' have s play around till you decide which works best for you. don't do as I did and try mucking around at a gig otherwise you will also lose a bud or 3.overall I prefer the silicone to the foam. they feel better and appear to work better too, but everyone has their own opinions.they do work pretty well too even if it sounds like they don't. they take the noise edge off leaving you with the decent sound. can't comment on their longevity as a few months isn't enough to judge.

These really work. I attend concerts using these instead of the normal soft earplugs and noticed a huge difference in my listening experience. I can hear the vocals and talk with my daughter comfortably. I work around mail processing equipment which is around 110 db and could never hear the communications radios. Now I can hear the radio, fellow coworkers, and the PA announcer without having to hear the noise. Thanks for creating this wonderful product.

These earplugs are the best I've ever used - much better than other musicians earplugs! I gig 6 nights a week and use them every night. They're very comfortable and the switchable reduction works very well! What more could you want?!I'm glad I backed them on Kickstarter!

I have dealt with noise sensitivity for the better part of 10 years. I have tried many types of ear gear, from earphones to custom design noise reduction ear protectors. These buds are not just affordable, but they work so well that they have become my ear gear of choice. I have them in my pocket each day and dread the day I lose them. Thank you for an amazing affordable product.

I have used many types of earplugs over the years. I play in a band and also go to gigs, and am very conscious of the need to protect my hearing. The dBuds are the best I have ever used. The ability to choose whether to cut 15bB or 30dB just by sliding the is an excellent feature. I am able to have conversations without struggling to hear and my friends are shocked! The case, different sizes, neck strap and magnetic features are very cool. Highly recommended.

Last year I was searching for earplugs that were going to work better than the foam "throw-away" sets you get everywhere, mostly for free.I am a musician and sound engineer and needed something that was going to reduce the volume of the sound but did not reduce some of the frequencies more than others. Usually the high frequencies get cut and everything is bass dominant.Then I read about dBud and decided to become a backer and support dBud financially and hope the company would come up with the goods they were promising.As a dBud backer, I then received my first set of dBuds after the manufacturing was finally completed. I proudly checked them out at home using the stereo and I was amazed at the sound quality and reduction of volume. I could hear everything, except it was just quieter.Then the big test, to see if my new dBuds would react the same at a concert. My wife and I had bought tickets to one of our legends, Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters at the Sydney Opera House (Australia) earlier this year. The concert was amazing, the sound mixing was great, the volume was not blastingly load, which I was thankful for, however, the dBuds were fantastic. I could here everything, especially the vocals, which usually drop out with general use earplugs.The 15db - 30db slider was amazing. The 30db setting dropped the volume even further with no frequency drop out.As someone who works with sound, mixing bands and going out to see bands play live, the dBuds are the best thing I have invested in for the protection of my ears with the clarity of sound maintained.One more thing I noticed was, that conversations at a concert or a pub gig were easier. You still had to get close to talk to each other, but didn't have to shout or scream just to hear one another.dBuds look great, fit great, they are comfortable, they don't stick out or make you look like a goon, and best of all, they do what they say they will do. Protect your ears and maintain quality of sound. Fantastic, I love'm.

Okay. I am a drummer and a frequent festival go’er, and these are really the best ear buds out there. The easy flick between -15 and -30 dB is so simple and useful. I use these for studying, walking around Copenhagen, playing music and when i just need to focus. Right now i am at the biggest festival I Northern Europe and enjoying being able to hear properly. I would really recommend these handy ear buds to anyone exposed to noise and music today. Such a great and simple product, with such an important function. So grateful for these. Buy now!

My dbuds arrived yesterday. I'm really amazed. The option to adjust the volume is extremely useful, in my case it is to walk in the city, sometimes I do bike stretches and the option of 15 db has made it easier for me to listen to the traffic while taking care of my ears ... with the option of 30 db above the bicycle I did not hear the cars correctly, but it is great to walk, you can listen to the sounds without being annoying. The extras that they have with the magnet and the cord to always wear them around the neck make them very comfortable. They are excellent, you will not regret it!Specials thanks to Kristina, who very kindly resolved my questions about shipping.Buenos Aires, Argentina

The dBuds are great. They do lose a bit of clarity in the - 30db option but that's kind of expected. Very highly recommended however.

The Earplugs are not bad themselves, although I agree with others saying that the edge bite sometimes so I used my acoustune tips I bought, the wide-bore one, and it all works well. The company could use the shape of common eartips on earphones as the shape fit more well than the provided eartips but the dbud is compatible to any eartips so there. When it comes to noise reduction, its just WOW! The open setting really does give protection but you can still have a normal conversation without any hassle whatsoever. The closed setting is perfect, made me sleep peacefully for 9 hours while there is construction in the hood 🙂 though it does hurt a little when your head is slightly on the side cause then again the edge will touch your ear and hurt a little. This earplugs can be more smaller. I never used the foamtips as they are big for me even the smallest one. The optional lanyard is great and useful when you need to have the earplugs always at reach. I find the lanyard useful when I attended a street party as I don't have the need to put them back in the carry rubber case which is also nice by the way. This earplugs stays in your ear like magic, I even played basketball with them and they didn't move a millimeter ha! Over-all, 5 stars, slight imperfections are compensated well enough. But hey, there's always room for improvement 🙂 thanks dBud!P. S Packaging is superb and well detailed.

Love em! Bought them for playing music. Wore them around the house at first, just to get used to them in my ears and it was great. I could still hear conversations, television, etc, but it blocked out the background noise. I've been wearing them periodically just around the house, they help me focus without being distracted by every tiny little sound (High Sensitive hearing). Using them in a live band setting was far better than any other off the shelf set I've used in the past. I normally end up popping out at least one ear protector during a performance, but these sound great and block the harsh extra dbs. I could hear everything on stage, I could sing without it sounded plugged up and ZERO buzzing or ringing after the show. Highly recommended! Should have bought one of the multi-set Kickstarters....Now when will they be for sale in a retail capacity. My bandmates and friends all need to stop wasting their money on the d'Addario, and similar "Musical ear protectors". I've tried all sorts in all kinds of price ranges. None of them came close to these dBuds!

Just arrived , and at domestic volume levels on the hi-fi they work really well, comfy and attenuate the sound in the open position well, closed its almost total shutout which is great for work where you have to listen to people over the sometimes very high volume, the slider is brilliant saving me having to pop out more conventional earplugs during shows to talk to customers, will try them out tomorrow at max volume in the greatest concert hall in the world

I just received my dbud Kickstarter award this week. I've used it all day yesterday and today at work. I work in a busy area and office, so this helped me work more efficiently. I suffer from Meniere's Disease and this helps me eliminate the outside noise and hear a speaker in a meeting or lower loud sounds so it's tolerable for my hearing. I wish the switch was easier to move but other than that, it works as advertised.

Got mine on the 23rd February and must say i was very impressed by the packaging and the intial feel look of the ear plugs. First trial run at work was great, apart from everyone asking me if I'd got headphones in haha. I run them past our H/S advusor and he was more then happy with the level of noise reduction. I work in a noisy plastic injection moulding plant and find them excellent for reducing the noise, without causing an issue in communication between other staff members. Found them comfortable for the entire shift and had no issues with them at all, apart from me being clumsy when removing one the foam tips, i ripped it. But i find the silicone ones better for me so it's not an issue. Highly recommend them to anyone who wants to reduce noise but still be able to communicate.

Hey guys, I used my dBuds for the first time today (where else but behind the drumkit) and I gotta say they were amazing! For years, I've used the generic foam type ear plugs, and in the process sacrificing sound, and these blow them away. I love that the music sounds as it should do, just quieter. Well done guys, I'll be grabbing another set or two soon!

I received them a few days ago. And they are great. I found the fitting buds that were included. I am a HSP person. High sensitive that is. I cannot filter all the noise. So thsanks to these Dbuds I can now go through life without all the noisy triggers and still be able to hear my kids and do nice things with them. I am not using the leash as it carries all the sound, created by the leash touching and rubbing against your body and clothes, into the dbuds. This makes it a very restless experience for me. That is why the four stars instead of 5

Very comfortable with memory foam tips, block the noise well while still letting you hear good sound. The only thing I would add is something to make which setting you are on more clear

WHEREVER THERE’S NOISE. SLIDE IT TO HOW YOU LIKE IT.

SLIDE HIGH VOLUME DOWN TO
SAFE LEVELS

At concerts, festivals and dance floors
At sports events
Around heavy equipment and engines
Lower volume, with minimal impact on sound clarity

SWITCH BACKGROUND BUZZ INTO
CREATIVITY AND CALM

If you’re working in a noisy office
Or studying in a café
Or travelling on crowded buses, trains and planes
Rest your mind and your ears

if you like it loud or want to tune out
