    Ear protection for adults at Glastonbury

    That comment was referring to our campaign as a whole. We initially started out in nightclubs, where, to the best of our knowledge after speaking with many music venues across the country, nobody had done what we're doing in terms of having a physical presence at these clubs to engage with the community. I'm sure you have received many emails with regard to this topic. I believe there are very few that have actually attended festivals physically, however? If you have some examples I'd love to check them out as it would be super helpful for us!

    2017 - How was it for you?

    Hi Julia, Earpeace HD ones are a good product. Unfortunately none around this price range are going to be perfect. The best ones you can get are custom moulded, however these will set you back a couple of hundred pounds! Any earplugs you wear take some getting used to, so I'd suggest persisting with them for a little longer. I personally found the same when I wore my first pair, however now I feel like certain gigs and clubs are way too loud when I don't have them in - especially in the higher frequencies! I'd suggest still carrying them with you, but only wearing them when you know feel the gig is very loud. If you're at the back of a concert or it's quiet, then the earplugs will be unnecessary and will only make it sound quieter. I hope that helps a bit! If you want any more advice or guidance feel free to get in touch with me on here or at john@watchthehype.com.

    Ear protection for adults at Glastonbury

    Hi @dentalplan, thanks for your support here. It really is an issue that is still scorned at by many. We're hoping to change that!

    Ear protection for adults at Glastonbury

    Hi @Yoghurt on a Stick, Matt, Oli and I are three guys running a campaign that nobody else has done before. We currently travel to clubs and festivals in order to discuss hearing health with attendees, advise and encourage general safe listening practices, and provide both free and high-fidelity earplugs. We have grafted hard to bring hearing health into conversations amongst young club and festival goers, borne from Matt getting tinnitus from loud clubs, and there being nobody discussing the issue in the scene. In answer to your initial questions: 1) We launched this campaign in October of last year, and are yet to turn a profit that benefits us financially. All proceeds so far go directly into costs associated with the company. 2) We are a private limited company but are looking into becoming a CIC. We are not a PR arm of Alpine. 3) chemist.co.uk is evidently a huge pharmaceutical distributor which turns a profit on thousands of products. This way, they can afford to reduce their margins on a single, non-priority product for them. What's more, is that after their much larger delivery costs, the product is less than a pound cheaper than it is on our site. Finally, the RRP of the PartyPlug is £10.99, of which we need the margin in order to run our campaign. Who do you want to support? A big company purely running for profit, or a small company trying to do something completely unique that is benefiting the music scene? In response to your criticism of our partnership with Alpine, we are currently exclusive to them for the following reasons: they have a great product, that prior to us starting this campaign we all knew was our favourite it is one of the cheapest universal fit high-fidelity earplugs on the market of its quality when we began this campaign (only 8 months ago), we were in need of a reputable brand to help get our name off the ground. We have not received funding from Alpine. I understand your point about providing other products. We are still in our developing stages and are looking into the best ways we can provide hearing health most effectively. I'm open to constructive feedback from you on this, not your "rat"-smelling pessimistic hole-picking of our company. My fundamental issue with your scepticism is understanding why you decide to scrutinise a startup company that is for a good cause, directly benefiting the health of music lovers, and not even consider the fact that the big pharmaceutical distributor is undercutting other retailers?

    Hey @Yellow_Fellow, great to hear you are a supporter of hearing health, thank you so much for the tweet! Shout out from the stage?! Are you playing at Truck? If so, which stage? We'll definitely come and check you out.

    Things that ur happy about

    Hey @feral chile, have you ever considered wearing high-fidelity earplugs to help with your tinnitus? They are reusable and protect your ears but have a music filter inside that doesn't muffle the sound like disposable foam ones. I run a hearing protection campaign called All Ears. We work with venues and festivals across the UK to help encourage safe listening practices. If you want to know more, you can check out our website below: https://allearscampaign.com/

    Ear protection for adults at Glastonbury

    Hi @bexj, this a huge problem amongst the music scene that is not talked about enough! I run a hearing protection campaign called All Ears. We work with venues and festivals across the UK to encourage safe listening practices and provide high-fidelity earplugs designed for music for sale. I'd hugely recommend getting some high-fidelity earplugs. They are reusable, attach to your keys and have a music filter that allows you to hear the music clearly without damaging your ears. The ones we provide are made by Alpine. They are affordable and fantastic. You check them out and more about our campaign through our website below! https://allearscampaign.com/ If you or anyone else here has any more questions about the topic, feel free to reply on here or email me at john@watchthehype.com. Cheers, John

    Yes, I'd 100% recommend earplugs for Corsica! We partnered with them recently to make high quality reusable earplugs always available buy behind the bar. If you're interested in more about that, check out our campaign below. We're working with tonnes of festivals this summer, too! https://allearscampaign.com/
