ACS Hearing Protection and In Ear Monitors

Why do we recommend custom hearing protection for people in the music industry?

It is comfortable, discreet, gives you the ability to communicate and you can wear it for long periods of time. Musicians experience significant sound exposures, most will

develop some degree of music-induced hearing loss, even better explained as Noise-

Induced Hearing loss (NHIL). Over a long period of time this high volume of noise

exposure can cause permanent hearing loss and tinnitus, diplacusis or even

hyperacusis.

Conventional hearing protectors can cause significant problems for those in the music industry, because they produce too much high frequency attenuation, too much attenuation overall and cause an occlusion effect. Wearing a good quality filtered hearing protector can assist in listening fatigue (ear fatigue) by protecting you from prolonged noise exposure.

Pro10

Product details

Custom made soft silicone ear plugs with the lightest hearing protection filter in the PRO range, giving softer attenuation for delicate and detailed acoustic performance.


Strong enough to protect, subtle enough to engage

The PRO10 offers highly delicate and level attenuation averaging 10dB, giving the most subtle protection in the whole of the PRO range. Ideal for vocal and acoustic performers, the PRO is perfect for environments that are only just edging over safe levels. Offering a natural and transparent sound to the wearer, the PRO10 allows musicians working with intricate acoustic performances to stay within the safe limits of exposure while keeping completely engaged with the performance filling the gap between no protection and over protection.


The next generation of filter design

The PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. For starters, it’s smaller than many competing filters which means it can fit into smaller ears without any protrusion which is great for both comfort and aesthetics. The filters are also user-swappable so you can chop and change as your environment demands to any other filter in the PRO range giving you complete control over your protection with just a single set of ear moulds. In addition, the PRO series are water resistant so they can be used outside or in high moisture environments and can withstand perspiration without it damaging the filter membrane.


The curse of the occlusion

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion. Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all but the PRO filters go one step further. The PRO series are vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.


Tailor made for you

The PRO10 ear plug is custom-made using soft medical-grade silicone so you get the very best in isolation and fit, allowing you to wear them for hours at a time without fatigue or discomfort. Each earpiece is manufactured to the highest standards ensuring you get a comfortable, discreet and effective hearing protector that can be fitted quickly, easily and securely every time.


Please Note: The PRO10 filter deliberately does not meet the minimum attenuation of 12dB above 1KHz that is required by the EN352-2 standard to be certified, it is therefore not tested or certificated under this standard.

Pro15
Pro-15-Earplugs

Product details

Custom made soft silicone ear plugs with hearing protection filters giving soft attenuation at lower frequencies, creating reduced occlusion. Popular with vocalists, orchestral and acoustic musicians.


A revolution in custom hearing protection

The PRO15 by ACS provides more subtle attenuation which is perfect for use in acoustic or orchestral environments, sloping up in the higher frequencies for protection against heavily played wind instruments. The vented design offers reduced occlusion, making communication and vocal performances sound more natural – resulting in a plug that is more transparent to the wearer. The complete plug (custom made in soft silicone) offers one of the most comfortable hearing protection solutions for unplugged musicians with the additional benefit of water resistance for increased longevity. The PRO15 represents the next generation of musicians hearing protection.


Protection just where you need it

The PRO15’s attenuation curve is the result of a very specific design that satisfies two very important requirements. Firstly, the requirement of acoustic musicians to be able to hear what they’re doing whilst being protected from peaks in higher frequencies but where the overall noise is lower than for many other musicians. The PRO15 solves this with a flat 12dB protection up to the midrange and then a gentle curve up to 15dB at the high end where many of the dangerous blasts from wind instruments sit. Second is the requirement for a hearing protector that conforms to the European Standard for hearing protection for use under the Noise at Work regulations. The EN352-2 standard specifies minimum protection values at specific frequencies and creating a low noise hearing protector can be difficult without dipping below these values. The PRO15 provides protection that’s not only perfectly suited to the acoustic musician but also meets the requirements of EN352-2 so the musician and politician are perfectly happy.


The next generation of filter design

The PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. The filter is smaller than many competing filters, meaning it can fit into smaller ears without any protrusion – which is great for both comfort and aesthetics.

Pro17
pro-17-1

Why do we recommend custom hearing protection for people in the music industry?


The most versatile and natural sounding hearing protector in the world. The standard for amplified musicians, DJ’s, vocalists, sound engineers, clubbers and gig-goers. Keeping all frequencies in check relative to one another means you get to hear the music just as it should sound – but 17dB quieter with no loss of high or low frequencies. Not only does the PRO17 provide a balanced reproduction but, for vocal performers, its vented design reduces occlusion, giving your voice a more natural sound making the hearing protector more transparent so you can concentrate on your performance.


It is comfortable, discreet, gives you the ability to communicate and you can wear it for long periods of time. Musicians experience significant sound exposures, most will develop some degree of music-induced hearing loss, even better explained as Noise-Induced Hearing loss (NHIL). Over a long period of time this high volume of noise exposure can cause permanent hearing loss and tinnitus, diplacusis or even hyperacusis.


With an average attenuation of 17dB, the PRO17 is perfect for musicians and vocalists performing with amplification as they are able to extend your safe listening time by more than 5 times.


Conventional hearing protectors can cause significant problems for those in the music industry, because they produce too much high frequency attenuation, too much attenuation overall and cause an occlusion effect. Wearing a good quality filtered hearing protector can assist in listening fatigue (ear fatigue) by protecting you from prolonged noise exposure.

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion.


Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all but the Pacato filters go one step further. The Pacato is vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.


The Pacato also offers resilience to moisture and wax build up. Being shielded from external moisture with the hard outer shell means that the fabric filter membrane is protected from the elements so your earplug will keep on performing in adverse conditions but, in addition, the filters and plugs can be cleaned to keep them performing for years to come.
