DESCRIPTION

SAFETY FIRST

dBud
's two stage volume slider enables you set the appropriate attenuation for your environment. In open position noise reduction is about 11 dB and in closed position about 24 dB.

Due to a logarithmic relationship, increasing volume with as little as 6 dB will double the sound pressure exerted on your ears. Your ears however, will perceive a doubling of volume for every 10 dB increase in sound pressure.

In open position dBud reduces the perceived volume with around 65% and actual sound pressure with as much as 97%. In closed mode the perceived volume reduction is about 87.5% and actual reduction of sound pressure as much as 99.9%.

It's pretty clear that wearing ear plugs make a huge difference to the safety of your ears!

THIS IS DBUD

Designed for everyday life, dBud earplugs are the perfect companions for anyone with a need to tone down the volume of your surroundings. Whether you’re a musician, concert goer, DJ, bartender or kindergarten teacher, dBud can help improve quality of life through protecting your ears while giving you a better experience hearing your environment.


ALWAYS WITH YOU

The best earplugs are the ones you carry with you, so we made it easy for you to bring dBud wherever you go. Wear them in style around your neck, ready to use wherever you are. Or in your pocket using the sleek carrying case.

When life gets too loud, just plug in and tune out. A simple slide and dBud lets you set the volume of the world around you. Quality of life at your fingertips!

THE MAGIC BEHIND IT

To achieve clear sound with precise noise filtration our engineers developed a unique solution consisting of three main components - an acoustic mesh, volume slider and eq-core. There are no electronics involved, it's a purely mechanical design. The benefit - no circuit boards that can break down and no batteries to replace. It just works, always.

The human ear is designed to naturally amplify frequencies around 2-4 kHz, i.e. human speech. When using ear plugs in general you fill out the void in your outer ear and remove most of this natural amplification. With most other earplugs you’ll notice this as the surrounding sounds becoming muffled and unclear.

dBud gives you retained clarity of hearing, with adjustable volume.

Useless

Despite the glowing product description, wet toilet paper stuffed in the ear would give better results. Uncomfortable - and not angled for L/R so they fit both ears poorly and block hardly any sound. Very disappointed. (And yes, I tried all the different tips). Total waste of money.

dBud ear plugs

disappointed, don't fit properly , very uncomfortable to wear, poor hearing protection due to bad fitment a waste of $75.00. There are cheaper and better fitting ear plugs on the market, which i have used and should have purchased those again but was lured to these thinking that more expensive ones are better which is clearly not the case . I threw them away , which is the same as setting fire to the money. Save your money and stay away from these. Gimmick marketing no substance

Best for sensory issues

I have used a plethora of earplugs, and these are the best for situations where you may need to switch from listening to people to dulling the noise around you. Admittedly, they can rub and the plastic isn’t too comfy. However, they have been lifesavers for my sensory issues and I wouldn’t be able to live without them. They may not be perfect, but they’re the best I’ve found.

They are ok.

Though somewhat effective, they don't quite reach the noise reduction levels I am looking for as a lighting and sound tech working concerts and festivals. For Below 80db, I assume they'd be fine.

dBud - Volume Adjustable Ear Plugs

Having a new job and not use to the loud noise my ears became very sensitive and uncomfortable I knew I needed to do something about it to protect my hearing for the future

I have been wearing the dBud Ear Plugs at work so far for the past 2 weeks and there is definitely a big difference with blocking loud noises at work such as helium tanks.

I love that I can still hear my team members and customer surroundings while wearing the dBud dislike they can be uncomfortable at first but then you get use to it over time. Highly recommend
