Hearing protection

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am currently suffering from an ear infection, and the partial hearing loss that I am experiencing has got me thinking about protecting my hearing so I can keep loving music and headphones at their best. I work at UPS and it is a relatively noisy environment. Industrial fans, lots of conveyors, buzzers, and even jet engines from about 100 yards (somewhat muffled). I cannot tolerate standard ear plugs so I'm curious about any alternatives, such as the V-Moda Faders. How well do they work?

Any other thoughts?

The Faders work pretty well,but are uncomfortable.  The metal housing touches the my in ear in such a way that it keeps a constant pressure on the hard parts of the ear.  I like them because they do fade out a few dB at concerts and still allow you to hear voices pretty well.

Have you tried other IEM's of this shape? Do they do the same thing?

Yes I have tried other IEMs of this shape.  This is why I add Comply tips to my IEMs.

 

I think it could be possible to add Comply tips to the Faders which would cure the problem.
