PITTSBURGH — For a long time, music lovers have been forced to make a choice: Go to concerts and fully hear the music while probably incurring permanent hearing damage, or wear earplugs that protect their hearing while distorting the sound of the music.
Enter high-fidelity earplugs, which are designed to preserve both sound quality and a listener’s hearing by electronically adjusting sound.
Typical foam earplugs disproportionately muffle some pitches more than others, so the music gets garbled. High-fidelity earplugs, on the other hand, lower the decibels evenly across all pitches.
