DUBS Acoustic Filters

We are exposed to so much noise -- in the city, or on a plane, or at a concert. For our own sanity (and for our long-term hearing), it's helpful to wear some kind of earplugs to reduce the clatter and pain.

But soft plugs or even hearing protection earplugs indiscriminately chop down the sound level, dulling your listening experience.

The Doppler Labs DUBS Acoustic Filters take another approach, reducing the volume without muffling the sound.

The trick is to use dynamic attenuation with high and low pass filters to target specific frequencies, while still providing an overall 12dB Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) to protect your ears.

The design of the DUBS is also friendly, with a soft tip that fits in your ear canal and the base that nestles flush in your outer ear, so you don't look like you have antennas sticking out of the sides of your head.

As a result, you can protect your ears in comfort, even at ridiculously noisy events or concerts -- and still enjoy and appreciate the experience. You also can hear your own voice more naturally.

The DUBS Acoustic Filters come in one size, designed to fit most adults ages 16 and up. They're available for around $25, in teal, blue, pink, or white accents.
