Vibes Earplugs

Vibes earplugs

Though marching musicians must project their volume to the top of the stadium, being in the thick of the noise can leave them with permanent hearing damage.

Vibes high-fidelity earplugs, seen on the TV show “Shark Tank,” keep musicians’ ears safe while still allowing musicians to hear music clearly unlike foam earplugs that deaden all sound.

According to Jamie Sherwood, business development manager, Vibes earplugs are different from other musicians’ earplugs on the market. While most protective earplugs are one size fits all, each pair of Vibes earplugs comes with small, medium, and large ear tips. Having various sizes can be helpful for young musicians who are still growing, he says. The ear tips are washable and therefore do not need to be replaced if they get dirty.

In addition, Vibes earplugs reduce sound by 22 decibels compared to typical reductions of 18 to 20 decibels, Sherwood adds.

Vibes earplugs are nearly invisible, and musicians can wear them without worry about them being spotted or clashing with uniforms. “They’re designed to be discreet,” Sherwood says. However, they are constructed in a way “that you can easily grab onto them and remove them.”

Vibes earplugs are available for $23.99. For more information, visit
