I’m a music teacher and I teach in a loud echoing drama space. I needed to get some hearing protection as the noise level really bothers me. I’m also a brass player and I often play in front of the percussion so these fitted music plugs are perfect for either situation.

About Our Earplugs

The problem most people have wearing generic foam earplugs is that music sounds muffled and is too restricted – especially up the mid and treble range (higher frequencies). They’re also uncomfortable and a pain in the butt to put in your ear – while getting filthier each time you reuse them.

The universal filtered earplugs for music that you might find at Tom Lees or L & M can be painful to wear, fall out or be hard to get into your ear properly in the first place. Not only that, the sound can be inconsistent – based on how they’re inserted.

Our Concertos customs block out the perfect amount of sound and the music stays crisp and clear so it sounds way better – the way it’s meant to.

They are easy to put in your ears and fit exactly the same way every time. They only fit one way and you can’t mess it up.

The result is excellent protection of your precious hearing without sacrificing sound quality or performance perfection.

To get started, just book a 30 minute appointment with us for ear impressions.

During your appointment we’ll show you all options and take your ear impressions. It’s completely painless.

That’s it! We’ll ship your earplugs to you in 3-4 weeks.

All of our custom earplugs are expertly crafted from the finest medical-grade silicone, which is hypoallergenic, soft to the touch, and completely body-safe. Concertos are made of a 60 shore hardness silicone which is sturdy for securing your filters while making them extra easy to put in your ear.

The filters are made of plastic and are interchangeable between attenuation levels (10 dB, 15 dB, and 25 dB).

We use both Etymotic Research (ER) filters and Dynamic Ear filters. They are equal quality. Unless you have a specific reason for requesting a either of the 2 brands, it’s best to leave it to the lab technicians to choose for “best fit” and most accurate acoustic output.

Each pair of Concertos comes with 1 set of filters. You’ll choose the filter strength (dB) when you order your earplugs.

If you feel you need a different filter from the one chosen at ordering – no problem.

Once you’ve had a chance to use your earplugs, we offer a free swap out to a different filter within 30 days of them being delivered.

We make the exchange as easy as possible. You’ll have the option to pick up filters at the office or we can mail them to you with a return postage paid envelope to send the other filters back to us.

You can easily swap the filters yourself and we provide you with video instructions.

Extra filters available and usually in stock for sale individually.

Our custom earplugs made of high-quality silicone and can last 4-5 + years with regular care.

Our ears grow with us, so yours might change size or shape over the years to affect the fit of your earplugs over time.

The only maintenance required is regular cleaning, safe storage, and avoiding contact with sharp objects.

We make custom earplugs for people of all ages, however, we do not take ear impressions for anybody under the age of 16.

If you require custom earplugs for somebody under 16, you can get ear impressions taken from an audiologist who works with kids. Then, send them to us and we’ we’ll build the earplugs using those ear impressions. This is the same process that anybody completes when ordering from out of town or country.

One of the issues with children is the long-term fit of the earplugs, children grow quickly and may outgrow their earplugs within 12-18 months.

Yes, custom musician earplugs are safe to use during flights or air travel.

They can help block out the noise of the aircraft and create a more comfortable environment while being able to hear conversation more easily without removing our earplugs.

Disclaimer: It’s important to follow all airline rules and regulations regarding the use of earplugs or any other hearing protection devices during air travel.

No, the colour is part of the silicone. It doesn’t wear off or transfer under any circumstances.

However, depending on the color of your earplugs (i.e. white), they may discolor slightly over the years due to contact with dark earwax.

No, our custom earplugs are made easy to insert and remove. They fit your ears in a specific way so you don’t have to mess around with them. You just push them in – no rolling or squishing, and twisting – they just fit.

They fit consistently and the exact same way every time you wear them. No guesswork.

To remove just grab them by one of the edges and pull gently.

Best answer… probably. We have a lot of experience working around or integrating custom earplugs with ear piercings. We’ve only ever encountered 1 where the piercing interfered with the earplugs.

Custom molded earplugs should not cause any negative side effects or discomfort if they are properly made and fitted by a trained professional. However, as with any type of earplug or hearing protection device, there is a small risk of discomfort or irritation if the earplug is not inserted correctly or if there is an underlying ear condition that has not been diagnosed.

That’s why we complete a thorough inspection of your ears before taking ear impressions to ensure your ears are healthy and suitable for wearing custom fit earplugs.

Custom molded earplugs are a great option for people with sensitive skin or allergies, but it’s important to choose the right materials and work with a qualified professional to ensure a proper fit.

Our custom earplugs are made from medical-grade silicone, which is hypoallergenic and generally safe for people with sensitive skin or allergies.

Some health insurance plans list “custom hearing protection” explicitly and some people get covered under a supplemental Health Spending Account – if their plan has one.

“Audiology Services” on most insurance refers to hearing aids services as hearing aids are registered medical devices. Hearing protection (earplugs) don’t fall under the medical device category.

We don’t direct-bill any insurance plans.

The best way to clean them is with soap and water. We recommend mixing them into a hand wash or at the kitchen sink. Use any soap that’s convenient or even wet-wipes if you have them handy.

If you have filters in your earplugs (i.e. Concertos, Protector Pros) or electronics like our Drifters Pro or VCEP Custom IEMs, you’ll need to take precautions to protect them. More info on cleaning filtered custom earplugs.

The majority of people replace their custom earplugs because their ears have changed or grown over time, which can affect a a proper fit. It is recommended to replace the earplugs every 5 years. However, if they are still comfortable and functioning well, there is no reason to discontinue their use.

Yes, you can wear custom molded earplugs with a helmet or other headgear.

In fact, custom earplugs can provide a better fit and more comfort than standard earplugs when worn with headgear. However, it’s important to ensure that the earplugs are inserted properly.

If your ears are unusually small, custom earplugs are the BEST option for you. They’re designed to fit the unique contours of your ear, regardless of its size or shape.

During the ear impression process, a trained professional will carefully take an impression of your ear canal using a specialized silicone material. This impression is then used to create a custom mold that is specifically tailored to your ear.

Custom earplugs are designed to fit snugly and securely in your ear, so they should not fall out during normal use. The ear impressions used to create the custom molds are made to accurately capture the unique contours of your ear, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.

That being said, it’s important to remember that everyone’s ears are different and there may be rare cases where a custom earplug does not fit properly. If you are experiencing discomfort or your earplugs feel loose or fall out, it’s important to have them checked by a professional to ensure they are fitting properly and providing the intended level of protection.

No, custom earplugs should not cause more earwax or push it further into your ear canal

The Process

Yes, please book your appointment here.

No, you don’t need a doctor referral. Just book your appointment online and get started!

You’ll be seeing a licensed hearing healthcare professional at your appointment for ear impressions.

Nothing. Just bring your ears. Feel free to bring whatever other earplugs you’re currently using so you can compare them during your appointment (optional).

Earwax is rarely an issue during ear impression appointments. Of course, if you know your ears are blocked, then it’s important to address it before using custom earplugs.

Custom earplugs take about 3-4 weeks to ship once the ear impressions hit the lab.

*Rush orders are available upon request.

Ear impressions are molds of your ear canals that are taken to create custom-fit earplugs or other hearing protection devices. During the impression process, a hearing healthcare professional will use a soft, pliable material to make a mold of your ear canal.

This process typically involves inserting a small foam block or cotton ball into your ear canal to protect your eardrum, and then injecting the impression material into your ear canal. Once the material sets, it is removed and used to create a replica of your ear canal.

These ear impressions are then used to create custom-fit earplugs that are designed to fit the exact shape of your ear canals, providing a superior level of comfort, fit, and protection compared to generic earplugs or earmuffs. The process of taking ear impressions is quick and painless, and can usually be completed in just a few minutes.

If you can visit us at our Burnaby or Surrey office in BC, we’ll do them for you. We include ear impressions for building your earplugs in the price of our earplugs.

Yes, we offer a 5-Day Rush Service.

Standard manufacturing time for custom-fit products is 3-4 weeks, not including shipping time. Using the “Rush Processing” option reduces the manufacturing time to 5 business days. Manufacturing starts the next business day after we receive your order or your ear impressions, whichever occurs later.
