Etymotic Research, an innovator in hearing wellness solutions, will demonstrate its high-fidelity earplugs and noise-reducing earphones, and promote hearing wellness via its Adopt-A-Band program, at The Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference on December 16-19 at McCormick Center, Chicago, IL. Attendees include more than 17,000 music students, teachers, and music industry professionals from all 50 states and more than 30 countries.
Etymotic will feature its high-fidelity line of active and passive hearing protectors, including the ETY-Plugs®, the new ER-20®XS earplugs (with a smaller form factor to fit under hats and helmets), and the Music-PRO® Electronic Musicians Earplugs. All three are designed to reproduce sound as the ear hears it, only quieter, so that music is not muffled but is heard clearly. “Long-term exposure to loud noise has a cumulative impact on hearing over a lifetime,” said Patty Johnson, AuD, Director of Audiology at Etymotic. “But the good news is that noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented, and Etymotic’s high-fidelity solutions allow musicians to do that. Additionally, many musicians tell us they hear each other better when wearing our hearing protectors, and that allows them to play tighter as a group.”
Innovation, education and hearing conservation are central to Etymotic’s mission, and Etymotic representatives will meet with attendees to raise awareness of its Adopt-A-Band program, which promotes healthy playing and listening habits by providing educational materials at no cost to program members, as well as discounted pricing on Etymotic’s high-fidelity hearing protection products.
Many university programs and colleges of music are adding hearing conservation to their curricula and require the use of hearing protection. “Etymotic launched Adopt-A-Band in 2010, and has enrolled almost 400 groups, including high school and college marching bands, concert bands, drum lines, indoor percussion lines, orchestras, pipe bands and band camps,” said Etymotic’s Charlene Clements, Global Sales Operations Manager and Adopt-A-Band Program Coordinator. “The Adopt-A-Band program provides a turnkey solution for educating and protecting the hearing of both faculty and students.”
