Why should I choose the DUBS?

The DUBS are advanced tech earplugs that reduce the volume without sacrificing your audio experience. Designed for loud environments, the DUBS allow you to protect your ears from harmful noise, and look good at the same time.

What are acoustic filters?

DUBS Acoustic filters are dynamic ear plugs engineered for sound fidelity. They use an intricate mechanical configuration to lower the level of the sound you hear while retaining the proper balance and clarity.

What is the difference between the DUBS and regular ear plugs?

The DUBS are designed to lower the volume you hear to a responsible, enjoyable level while retaining balance and clarity. Bulky foam earplugs block sounds completely. Think about it like choosing between turning the volume down on your speakers or stuffing a pillow into them.

What is NIHL?

Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is permanent hearing damage caused by exposure to loud sounds, such as live music, construction, airplanes or sirens. NIHL can happen suddenly, when a mic feeds back at a concert, or develop gradually from repeated exposure to loud noise over time.
