Etymotic Research, an innovator in hearing wellness solutions, will bring its latest products to the 2015 Percussive Arts Society International 40th Anniversary Convention (PASIC) this week at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX. Attending percussionists and their teachers can visit Etymotic in PASIC’s exhibit hall in Booths 203–205 to learn about and purchase the best hearing protection products available anywhere. Etymotic’s noise-isolating earphones are also expected to be some of most sought after products at the show.
The company’s new ER•20®XS High Fidelity Earplugs and the ER•20®XS “Universal Fit” with interchangeable eartips, will be of particular interest to drummers. ER•20XS earplugs feature a stemless design with a low profile that conforms to the plane of the outer ear, and are available in two sizes: standard and large. The ER•20XS Universal-Fit package includes three interchangeable options: standard and large triple-flange eartips and a pair of foam eartips. All three eartips take advantage of the advanced technology in the earplug itself to produce a flat response on the ear, offering unsurpassed clarity with a 20-dB equal sound reduction across frequency. With ER•20XS, the richness of music is preserved and speech remains clear, just quieter.
Etymotic’s Music•PRO® electronic earplugs will be of equal interest to attending music educators and their students. The Music•PROs are the ultimate in hearing protection. These adaptive earplugs automatically adjust to changing sound levels, providing protection from loud transients and loud sustained sounds, and natural hearing when sound levels are safe. Two levels of protection—9 dB or 15 dB—and enhancement for quiet sounds are available at the flip of a switch. Music•PRO earplugs are ideal for music educators who want to avoid the inconvenience of removing earplugs when it’s quiet, but need hearing protection from loud transients and sustained loud sounds.
“Music-induced hearing loss is preventable,” said Al Arends, Managing Director, Sales and Marketing, at Etymotic. “Etymotic has provided the world’s only truly flat hearing protection to musicians for over 25 years. With Music•PRO earplugs, we’re pleased to offer the first electronic earplugs for music industry professionals that allow them to hear music naturally but be protected with no loss of clarity when sound exceeds safe levels. No other devices can do that.”
