      Is it good to have earplugs made in wax for concert?

      -27db, i put them to block my ear perfectly.

      I only have that for now and one of my friend said it was better than standard earplugs.

      No, its not good. Your ear should not be fully blocked and isolated. Its important that you have pressure balanced plugs.
      If you cant afford the custom made elacine that I already recommended then get at least alpine music safe
      They have interchangeable filters (with air hole) if you want more protection and only cost about 20€. You can get them at any acustician or buy online.

      Foam earplugs should be the only ones used for concerts, I have been to 4 concerts with foam earplugs, (Classic brand) with no trouble at all and no increase in T or hearing affected!

      There is allot of misinformation about earplugs on this forum and I for one, am a bit fed up with reading the bullshit that some members post about earplugs, There is no danger in wearing earplugs, foam ones inserted properly will protect you from almost all forms of noise, if need be wear earmuffs over the top.

      Our hearing and ears in general can handle allot more than we give them credit for!

      Yep, gotta love it! I read in some studies that it can be more useful than earplugs. But I recommend both.

      Sorry, I have no idea about wax earplugs, I can only vouch for foam, they have never let me down.
