With no filters or mechanics, 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. Simply put, Happy Ears were made for you to turn the volume down in life.

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

Earplugs are NOT a one size fits all product. For this reason, Happy Ears are offered in sizes small, medium and large. If you use an earplug that doesn't fit your ear properly it will either be painful and/or it won't protect your ears effectively. For this reason, we recommend all first time users invest in our "Discovery Pack" to find the size that fit your ears best.
