ES49 Custom Earplugs


In stock


The ES49 is a canal style earplug that is virtually unnoticeable with a choice of 9, 15, or 25 dB filters.



The ES49 is the earplug of choice for the discriminating performing musician or concert-goer. The flat attenuation characteristics allow the music to be heard accurately, but at a safer volume, thus reducing volume levels evenly without affecting the overall sound quality. This custom hearing protection product was designed specifically with the musician in mind. With a choice of 9, 15, or 25 dB filters, the ES49 is perfect for any musician or music lover.

Special color options in Otoblast & Vinyl are available.

Review and Rating


I have twisty, strangely-shaped ear canals and even the best universal fit earplugs and monitors don't seal for me.

I've been using ES49 earplugs for at least 10 years and maybe 15. In addition to wearing them in concerts and other loud venues, I wear them on my local subway system which gives off loud screeching sounds. If you see people on a loud subway (or airplane) with EarPods or other open-air monitors, you KNOW they're turned up to 12, causing hearing damage rather than protecting their ears.

I swear by these for protection of my valuable hearing, and I finally replaced the originals with Slick-Sil-coated Otoblast a couple years back in red/clear and blue/clear "cat's eye" (swirl).

I really don't know the difference between these and the newer TRU earplugs, but since they take different filters and I already have a complete set for my ES49's, I'll be sticking with them.
