With no filters or mechanics, or wasteful foam tips, Happy Ears has designed a reusable earplug with the most even "attenuation" of any non-custom made earplug. This is fact.

So, what's Attenuation?

Attenuation is the reduction of volume across frequencies. Happy Ears even attenuation means volume is reduced evenly across frequencies (low to high), leaving users with a natural sound in their ear versus the muffled or "muddy" sound offered by other earplugs. Happy Ears reduce total volume by 25 dB. Some earplugs reduce total volume more, but that doesn't mean they're better earplugs. Happy Ears even attenuation means you can sleep, but hear your alarm in the morning, attend a concert and experience THE BEST sound quality (at a lower volume), ride a motorcycle and safely "hear" the road, travel by plane or train with less stress on your ears or work in an open office space with less irritating background noise while maintaining the ability to communicate with a colleague next to you.

Happy Ears are offered in three sizes to ensure comfort and being made in Sweden ensures they are extremely durable...Each pair lasts months! This along with being discreet in the ear make Happy Ears a "must have accessory" to be used daily to protect your ears. Using earplugs for sleep or earplugs for concerts bring obvious health benefits, but we continue to be amazed by our loyal customers who now recognize Happy Ears as being the best earplugs for studying, for those suffering from Misophonia (for tinnitus relief) and for use at the gym for spinning or zumba classes. Happy Ears were designed not just to protect ears, but to enhance the overall wellness of our customers.

In the graph below you see Happy Ears, depicted in the red line, attenuates nearly as evenly as a professional custom made earplug costing $200.
