I recently made new custom made Elacin earplugs: 1. A regular pair with -25 dB filters 2. A special pair completley filled with silicon (0% hollow), for maximum protection The second ones should lower the volume about 30-40 dB (bass-treble) according to the guy who made the moulds. So, I´m thinking this should be more than enough protection for more or less everybody! If the venue is booming in 110 dB, these plugs should lower that to about 80 dB in bass, and even more in treble... So, to those who avoid noisy environments completly, is this "just" because of anxiety for getting worse T or do actually think, or know, that 30-40 dB is still not enough protection? I´m asking because I just can´t live with the idea that I could never again go to a concert or club, etc. Going to clubs and concerts, but with muffled sound is a 1 000 000 times better than staying home, I think!
