I have these, they work fantastically. Best sound quality of any ear plug I have tried. They are easy to put in and fit extremely well. Be sure to get the correct size because if they aren't the fit is horrible.
Massdrop advertise these every couple of weeks, but won't ship them outside the US, both of which are very annoying! Can anyone recommend something which is actually obtainable, and gives decent sound quality?
@ Massdrop: Maybe don't bother telling people about products you won't send to us. :-(

I ordered them at earasers.store and got them into uk (in two days, without shipping costs.. seams that the USA finally opened up in Europe..
I think for those of us in the US it is better to buy at Amazon (with the customer service and return policy) than here if items are identical
These have been pretty great for me so far. Only tested at a few shows yet but they work well for me. A bit tricky to get them situated just right at first, but very much worth a few moments of fidgeting. I very much prefer these to the 2- or 3-flange types.
Other than some minor difference in price (I see a medium-size version at Amazon for $33.99 with the S&S option (https://www.amazon.com/Earasers-HEM001-Musicians-Plugs-Medium/dp/B00E2D9HAA), is there any difference between MD's version and other stores?

"This drop is limited to members in the US" :( Though now that I go on their website, they're only $18 more over there and after DHL takes their insane brokerage fee, I wouldn't save much going Massdrop anyway.

How are they in metal concerts?
Tenryuu
not enough noise reduction. these are only the 19db model when you would want the 26db reduction for metal concerts.
I'm new to this and was wondering if i could get some insight on the matter. I ride a motorcycle, and use a helmet comm pack to listen to music while riding. I'm already partially deaf (thanks to genetics and stupidity) so im trying to take care of my hearing now. I've reverted to IEM's (jaybird x3) while on the bike so try and dampen the outside noise, but its really annoying when i get a call while on the road, not to mention the comfort is minimal. Would these EARasers be suitable to use in this situation to go back to listening to music via helmet comms?
This may be a totally ignorant question, but I am curious. I am 66. Years of factory work during college, added to shooting without protection, and years as a DJ with headphones cranked up left me deaf from 1500-5000 cycles. Do these in any way amplify the sound? And for those who choose not to protect your hearing. You will end up like me. And please believe me, you won't like being deaf in certain ranges. Protect your ears! You can't get another pair. Thank you for the answer.
Y u no ship to Canada
How do these compare to the Rooth and the Vibes earplugs? I go to a lot of heavy metal concerts and I always try to go close to the stage and I headbang a lot as well.
I still want to be able to enjoy the best possible sound of course but comfort and how well they stay in my ears is what's most important to me.
I'll roll the dice and go with some Mediums. I'm 5'11 and usually choose the larger earplug options on IEMs for a greater seal and isolation of sound when listening to music.
If you check their official website they offer exchanges, but you'll have to pay for the shipping (unless ordered directly through their website)
I got these in the previous drop. The sound quality was nice but they just do not stay in my ears when moving around. Since my use case is for concerts, raves, festivals, and such: I really need earplugs that will stay in while dancing.
it’s possible that the small’s would’ve worked but I’m not going to purchase this drop to find out. I’m a man and purchased the mediums
Should give you two pairs IMO
That sizing information makes no sense.
So if 75% of people wear small or medium, and 2% of people need x-small or large, that means 23% of people need x-large?!

That's not what they said at all. They said 75% of men wear medium and 75% of women and adolescents wear small. That would mean about 23% of men wear small and 23% of women and adolescents wear medium.
That leaves 2% to wear X-Small or Large.
Edit: Woops didn't see the other reply
TheRealDaniel
A 1 in 4 chance you'll pick the wrong size.
it would be nice if the higher decibel plugs were an option in the future.

Same comment I made on the drop last time. The 26Db model would be awesome.
These are not good for attending concerts, etc. The 26Db model would be great for it though
Tweak
Would 31Db be too muffling? Or is it better? I want to make sure my ears are as protected as possible but I also do not want muffled music.
am the only one who initially thought these were some hi tech wireless iems?
I am curious to know. What makes this so special? Are they really that good? I suffer from migraines and other conditions so I use ear plugs to help out when needed. I simply use standard to triple flange ear plugs. Would these fare much better than those that I am already using?

So many musicians in your position never realized- also jazz ensemble saxes & bones, and set drummers (hi-hat) as well.
Treynlds
Yup. I was center snare in a drumline. It makes me cringe when I consider how many hours I spent just murdering my hearing.
These vs. Eargasm?
curleyfrei
These.
I have both and I went back to using these after trying the Eargasms. These have better attenuation, without swapping for the 26db filters, and they are more comfortable.
dalrymple
Thanks! I actually did end up going w/ these via Amazon. Only tried 'em once so far but I do prefer them.
How do these compare to the Rooth that just ended?
Airith
See the comments here/below about the "triple flange" earplugs
make sure you get the right size. I bought these in a previous drop and got the medium but they are too small for my ears so they are basically useless
is the "antenna" neccessary for the plugs to work properly?
bykacliat
The antenna is how you get them out of your ears.
For what it's worth... a note about sizing: I used to think I have the world smallest ears in the universe, no earphones out there fit my ears, ever. They always hurt. Even the ER-4 earphones I've used for years feel tight. So I got the smallest ones of these earplugs.
It turns out they're too small for my ears... entirely useless for me. Wasted $20 (and annoyed).
blais
the smallest ones are clearly for kids...

Not always, I know at least one adult that wears them. :)
I have been using these for a while. They are better than those triple-flange earplugs that also get sold here, but I can't compare them to other models. At rock concerts, you can hear much more of the music, and that's my main decider. They're also great when you're trying to sleep on a noisy airline or hotel room - totally blocks out that type of noise.
I would pay a good deal of money to buy a special edition of these that worked as tips for my iems. Because I have small/strange ear canals, most tips for iems just don’t work. Regular silicone hurt/fall out, foam muffles sound and doesn’t always work, and most just don’t get the ideal seal for me. I’m left with getting custom tips for my iems which cost a lot and take a while to make. These earplugs are incredibly comfortable because they follow the curvature of the ear canal. They already have a hole in them which I’m considering play with to see if I can DIY some tips. If EARasers made tips, I’d be highly interested.
2 Year Review of my EARasers
Style: I bought these mostly because I wanted ear plugs that are discrete, so that when i'm at loud bars/clubs/concerts I don't get weird looks for wearing earplugs. They serve this purpose excellently. I've never had anyone notice them, that i'm aware of.
Comfort/fit: I find that they are fine to wear for many hours on end, but by the end of the day I'm happy to take them out. So there's some fatigue over time but it's slight. They definitely aren't as comfortable as regular foam earplugs. At least for me. I also realized that really i should have two different sized ones, one for each ear, and its a shame that they don't offer that option.
Sound Attenuation/Performance: These definitely don't reduce SPL as much as regular foam plugs. From my guess (I used to audio edit/mix indie films, and I still work in video production today) they cut an a-weighted average of 10 db less than regular foam plugs. But, it's certainly a more even cut of frequencies than regular foam plugs, the highs aren't cut as severely. Where the foam ones would cut 10khz by 40db, these are more like 20db. At really loud concerts, talking 110+ db, I bring these and some foam plugs, because sometimes these just don't cut enough sound (Yes, even with a good seal). So I swap out the EARasers for the foam ones when it gets super loud.
TLDR: I really like my EARasers and would recommend them to anyone who wants discrete earplugs and modest SPL attenuation. But they aren't the most comfy and don't reduce sound as much as i would like sometimes.

Their review/evaluation is spot on. Bring foam earplugs for the occasional "turned up to 11!" gigs, but otherwise EARasers hold their own everywhere. Because of their low profile, I'm able to use them for DJing techno on loud soundsytems with headphones (also boosted by a headphone amplifier) and can mix properly. Others popped out too much and my headphones would push them in my ears dangerously deep. Music's still louder than safe, but I get an accurate picture of what the music sounds like to everyone, and for layered/textured techno it's important.
mentalfloss
They have a higher noise reduction (-26Db) model which would be awesome.
Any way to get the 26Db models?
Can anyone explain to me what these do, or are for? I play drums but I just use regular plugs from home depot :)
Noro
These will not distort or muffle the sound you hear like normal plugs do (in theory). The idea is that you can hear the almost full range of sounds, just quieter. Normal plugs will distort what you hear and lose the softer and more nuanced tones and make music sound like it has less dept. I don’t know if these work, but that’s what they’re are supposed to do
vanmmyers
Well that's interesting, thanks!
People go to concerts to hear music.. then put earplugs into their ears? What's wrong with this picture?

Thank you
Mr. [deleted user], what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
I'm so sad this is only shipped to the US. I wanted to buy 2 pairs. :(
