I always wear earplugs when I go out at night. Not only do they protect what little hearing I have left, but if someone ugly comes up and tries to talk to me they also give me an easy out: I just point at my ears, conjure up an apologetic look, and shrug. Sorry, girl with 4 chins, I'm afraid I can't hear a word you're saying. What sucks is when it's the 1 in 87 times the chick is actually hot and I either have to dislodge my wax-laden plugs, or spend the whole conversation going, What? What's up? Do I drum beer often?
DUBS Acoustic Filters, earplugs pre-tuned to target only specific frequencies, are made to reduce damaging volume levels without sacrificing the clarity of the sounds you want to hear.
From concerts and sporting events to airplanes and bustling cities, DUBS aim to maintain the richness of and our connection to the noises around us, but with 12 decibel Noise Reduction Rating filters that soften their acoustic blow and reduce Noise Induced Hearing Loss. This is in contrast to traditional earplugs, which block all noise equally, and end up muffling and distorting sounds. DUBS use a mechanical process called Dynamic Attenuation and a proprietary combination of high and low pass filters to reduce volume but not audio balance and clarity.
DUBS Acoustic Filters are composed of high strength plastics, stainless steel, polymer foams, and silicones. They are made to be durable enough for repeated and everyday use.
