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 Earplugs. “Long-term exposure to loud music has a cumulative impact on hearing over our lifetime,” said Patty Johnson, AuD, Director of Audiology at Etymotic. “But the good news is that music-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, which allows them to play tighter as a group.” Don’t miss Dr. Johnson’s clinic on “Stop the ringing!
