Drop The Sound Level By 20 db
By M. Joy
These made all the difference in the world for me in practicing on my drums. My DW kit sounds gorgeous,- but they are a bit loud when I play them in my home. I found myself feeling somewhat intimidated - even "holding back" - due to the loudness. I had trouble totally enjoying a session.
These plugs changed that completely. They still allow the sweet sound of the drums and cymbals to pass through, but at a reduced sound level. I can now relax and thoroughly enjoy playing. They were well worth the cost and I recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.

They simply don't work at all
By Matt K.
Please correct me if I'm using these incorrectly, but I'm quite certain that I'm not. These don't work at all. There is absolutely no change in the sound I hear when I put these in my ears. On one hand, that's pretty amazing- earplugs typically muffle what you hear (which is what I was trying to avoid in buying these earplugs.) On the other hand, it feels like there's nothing in my ears at all. No volume or decibel reduction. How is this going to protect my ears?! I was really looking forward to trying these out and using them at a concert next week + for band practice, but they appear to have just been a waste of time and money. If anyone thinks they can help me or that I can salvage these before they go into the trash please let me know!

Buyer beware -- description error in sound reduction
The description lists these as reducing by 20 db, but the package says they only reduce by 12 db. That is a huge difference in terms of sound intensity! If you need the higher sound reduction, do not get these. You will be disappointed and returning them as I did.
