Shooting concerts means constantly being subjected to extremely loud music. I used to use ear plugs only on rare occasions. As a rock/metal fan, I want to hear the different instruments. However, this of course, is highly irresponsible and very risky. I carry regular orange sponge material ear plugs that you can pick up at your local drug store for less than $10. I do not particularly like using these because of the loss of fidelity.
Recently however, a friend of mine, not only recommended the DUBS EAR PLUGS by Doppler Labs, but actually gave me a pair as a gift. This is after all, not a paid advertisement, or sponsored review. Since my first paid was a gift, I didn't search the price (around $25) and actually believed that they were electronic like in-ear monitors. They are not; which only makes them even more remarkable. I won't get into the details of the physical appearance of the DUBS, as I hate unboxing videos. What I will do however, is get to the bottom line.
These things ROCK! Cheap pun, I know. You immediately experience lower volume, however, the fidelity of the sound stays in tact (for the most part). With regular earplugs vocals are the first thing to disappear; not so with the DUBS. You can still hear the different instruments, and get this: you can hear when someone is talking to you. I'm glad I came across this product and highly recommend it.
