As a musician, such as a guitarist, drummer, singer or DJ, you face significant risk of hearing damage as you're often in an environment with loud music. Hearing loss has a direct impact on the performance of your profession or passion because your hearing is the most essential gear. Good hearing is essential and properly protecting your hearing is important during rehearsals, performances and concerts. Our luxury model MusicSafe Pro has been specifically developed for musicians. This is the most luxurious and extensive edition of the Alpine music range, with three sets of exchangeable filters, allowing you to determine your own protection.
AlpineAcousticFilters™- music quality remains preserved
MusicSafe Pro is the only hearing protection for musicians with three exchangeable filter sets for low, medium and high protection. These unique AlpineAcousticFilters with selective absorption guarantee optimal protection against harmful noise levels, while preserving excellent music quality. Depending on the instrument you are playing, your position on the stage or the kind of music you are playing, you can always choose the protection that suits you most.

How dangerous is loud music?
The safe and statutory limit to which the hearing may be exposed is 80 decibel. Regular noise above 80 decibels will irrevocably lead to hearing damage. Official reports show that the limit of 80 dB is soon exceeded. For instance, at concerts, noise levels up to 120 dB can be measures. For rock musicians, the harmful noises are mainly produced by the drums and the amplifiers, whereas for classical musicians, their own instruments and those of others greatly affect their hearing. The following values shows how soon the maximum exposing time is reached:
Maximum exposure without hearing protection
What filter is suitable for me?
Depending on your situation, the instrument you’re playing and where you are playing it, you can choose your own absorption. For instance, as a drummer, you’ll require higher absorption levels than when you’re a singer.
MusicSafe Pro earplugs last longer if you if you look after them. Clean them regularly using lukewarm water and a little soap.
Attenuation values MusicSafe Pro in decibels
Attenuation values measured by TNO (Dutch organization for Applied Scientific Research) according to EN 352-2 (2002) and calculated to ISO 4869-2a standards.
Got these almost 3 years ago on the recommendation of a friend. I used the a LOT, 3-4 times a week at band practises and very loud rock gigs for several hours. they discoloured slightly but aside from that felt like new. I recently lost them so am buying more now. They are really good in terms of sound clarity. They reduce volume without muffling the sound. For the money I think they are an amazing buy. The fact that I'm buying these again speaks for itself.
The white looks kindof pinky/cream after a year or so. Maybe pick a colour that won't look so dirty? Another UV glow golour would be good though (easier to find a dropped earplug on a club floor that way). I think they're great.
Having tried several alternatives I can honestly say these are great, especially for the price. Very clear and allow the detail to still be heard without being muffled. I no longer gig (be it playing or watching) without them.
Round pocket case is great. The main 'box' doesn't stay shut without some tape but apart from that all good.

I have worn these for years to protect me at gigs. Even in the front row of a Mogwai concert these guys still hold up with comfort and protection - I wouldn't wear anything less than a quality product like these. The key ring carry case is ideal. Thank you Alpine!

I really love them and the idea that you can change how much sound they will block and that you can have them with you everywere.
Thats something noone else does even though its so important.
so thank you for an amazing product.
Well it could be nice to have the container in another more sturdy material.
Great protection, really good quality!
The travelbox is not good: it opens and you lose either the earplugs, the box itself or both.
As a professional Mobile DJ, my ears take a beating. I was noticing my ears would ring after my gigs. Honestly I was scared. My Doctor said to try ear plugs. But normal ear plugs, just kill everything off. I could hear myself talk and not what people were saying. So I went on a web surfing journey to find a better solution. I have tried many different ear plugs. But nothing comes close to offer what Alpine MusicSafe has done for me, I can hear everything, but my ears no longer ring after a gig!
Comfortable, compact, and simple to use. What more could you ask for? Keep them clean.
I play in a band, and go to gigs every month at least. I then developed tinnitus in the last 2 years. Tried a few different earplugs, mainly foam and silicon based, but I could never heard my guitar properly with them in. With the white tips of these ones in, I can hear myself playing and thankfully don't have the extreme ringing after practices and gigs. Exactly what you want. Oh & PS, their customer service is top notch!
These are very good earplugs, probably the best for their price. I've tried cheaper 'plugs--ClearE.A.R. and A.C.S. ER20--but these have better balance across the frequency spectrum and are more comfortable. The guy who served me in the music shop had these on his key ring so they must be good!
The balance over the frequency spectrum isn't quite consistent across the three filters: as attenuation decreases there's a shift towards the bass. (Don't just rely on the "average" SNR. Check the performance figures on the insert.)
To ensure comfort, use the insertion tool; the 'plugs might not be as comfortable if using fingers alone. Getting the things out of the key ring container can be a bit fiddly if you don't put them back in right. (The trick is put one in the insertion tool.)
The detachable lid's screw thread is quite shallow. Make sure the lid is tightly shut as that's the part with the key ring attachment. An extra couple of millimetres on the screw thread would have been more reassuring.
The important thing, though, is that these earplugs do the job.
I'm a professional musician and have been using these ear plugs for the past three years or so. The great thing about them is that you can change the filter to suit the environment. I never go anywhere without them - they keyring box is an ingenious idea. I actually have two sets and keep one in my guitar case.
It would be great if you could buy spare parts, or if it came with another applicator as I've lost one from of my sets and they're hard to put in without one.
I'm going to clubbing a lot, 3-4 times per week, so I thought was time to buy some earplugs. I went for this one as they are supposed to be some kind of "professional", I don't like cheap stuff.
They have 3 different filters so you can change them depending on the club/party where you (music higher or lower).
I'm really surprised on this items, after 2 weeks using them, I can't go out with them. The music is lower, no distortion, but the best thing is that I hear the people speak super clear, especially in the dancefloor. Now I can talk with everybody without any problems, even under the speaker, they are the one who need to lean in to listen me better :) I feel protected and sound is clistar clear.
5 stars, really recommended!
The travel box is very useful, you could make the bottom of it flat instead of rounded, so it stays on itself instead of falling down.
Alpine MusicSafe earplugs are the most comfortable and effective models for my ears. I've been a professional DJ, musician, and vocalist for three decades, and also attend concerts of all sorts and sizes on a weekly basis. Along the way, I've tried every over-the-counter earplug made, including wax, foam, and other silicon products (Etymotic / Hearos). Alpines are the only ones that don't begin to get painful after an hour or so. They are also the only ones that allow me to use different inserts to alter the attenuation, which is fantastic: it just never made sense to use the same plugs at an intimate, indoor acoustic show and a full-blown stadium rock concert.
Fantastic product. Just wish I had them for the last gig. I couldn't believe how much I could still hear with these in but they lowered the volume just enough. These are my first set of proper plugs and were highly recommended by my friend who uses these for gigging.

I have been using the music safe pro for a couple of years now and have to say they are great. I work in a theatre and live music venue and also regularly attend music events. I love loud music but I am very aware of the dangers too much of it can present. I wear the Pro safe both at work and at events. They are extremely comfortable which is important as I often have to wear them for long periods. The ability to adjust the level of noise reduction is also important as I can vary this according to the event. A great product that means I can enjoy the show and know my hearing is being protected.
