Musicians should be as vigilant about protecting their hearing as they are about protecting their instruments, hands, fingers, or lips.
Warren, Michigan (PRWEB) July 25, 2014
Collaborative hearing conservation efforts between NAMM® and McKeon Products, Inc., makers of Mack’s® Hearing Protection, were highlighted at the 2014 National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM®) Summer Show in Nashville, Tennessee. Free Mack’s® Acoustic Foam Ear Plugs were provided to show attendees via the NAMM® information stations. While Mack’s® Earplugs have been available for free at the NAMM® Shows the past several years, this is the first year Mack’s® has been asked to be the official earplug supplier of the NAMM® Show. “We’re proud to further our long-running relationship with NAMM® to help promote the importance of hearing health to sound engineers, music industry professionals and music students,” says Pete Benner, National Sales Manager for Mack’s®.
McKeon’s new Mack’s® Acoustic Foam Ear Plugs are the first foam earplugs designed specifically for musicians. The innovative hollow-cut and grooved design provides clearer acoustics and allows for improved communication. With a noise reduction rating of 20 decibels, these ear plugs provide hearing protection while minimizing the muffled sound often experienced with traditional foam earplugs.
“With those long rehearsals, jam sessions, and concerts, much of the music musicians are exposed to exceeds OSHA’s regulated noise exposure threshold levels where damage to one’s hearing can become permanent. A musician’s hearing is their most essential asset, the most useful tool in creating their art. If a musician loses their hearing, they are likely to lose their music career as well. Musicians should be as vigilant about protecting their hearing as they are about protecting their instruments, hands, fingers, or lips,” says Benner.
