Ever go to a concert and have your head splitting from all of the loud music? Oh boy oh boy have I ever. From the KISS/Aerosmith show I saw in West Palm, to Brand New jumping up and down on a small Orlando stage when noone knew who they were, to watching Small Town Sleeper after I opened for them at a small coffee house, I learned a heck of a neat little trick: pop in a pair of ear plugs. They'll dampen the sound enough at any live show you go to, and you'll still be able to hear the music just fine. And when you're done? You'll be hearing just fine and not damaging your ears at all.
That's what makes thisso great: you don't need to use it just to muffle out annoying siblings!
