Long-term exposure to loud noise has a cumulative impact on hearing over our lifetime. But the good news is that noise-induced hearing loss can be prevented, and Etymotic’s high-fidelity solutions allow musicians to do that.

Etymotic Research, an innovator in hearing wellness solutions, will demonstrate its high-fidelity earplugs and promote hearing wellness via its Adopt-A-Band program at the Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA) convention in San Antonio, TX (Booth #2640-2642) beginning on February 10th. TMEA bills itself as “the nation's premier music educators convention.”
With over 26,000 attendees (including over 9,600 active music educators), TMEA offers opportunities for professional development, inspiration, networking, and best buys on anything the music industry has to offer. The TI:ME Music Technology National Conference is also being held in conjunction with the convention, adding its events to the TMEA schedule. Etymotic participates at TMEA to exhibit and demonstrate its earplug products, but also to further its mission of hearing health advocacy for music educators, their students and their students’ families.
Featured at TMEA will be Etymotic’s 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. “Long-term exposure to loud noise has a cumulative impact on hearing over our 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.”
TMEA is also a place where Etymotic representatives can meet with music teachers and raise awareness for its Adopt-A-Band program. “Etymotic launched Adopt-A-Band in 2010,” said Etymotic’s Global Sales Operations Manager Charlene Clements. “Since then, we’ve enrolled almost 400 high school marching bands, concert bands, drum lines, indoor percussion lines, orchestras, pipe bands and band camps.” Adopt-A-Band provides a turnkey solution for educating and protecting the hearing of both faculty and students.
