    Default Where to buy ear plugs

    Hey guys, I used to have some ear plugs, supposedly for swimming use, but I lost them at a shoot. I have a concert shoot coming up soon and I need to get a replacement pair. Any idea where I can get them?

    Ideally they should look like a screw to and have like 2 layers of air pockets & rubber to insulate the sound from reaching the eardrums.

    No, I don't have any in-ear earphones because my ears are sensitive to audio from earphones.

    Any ideas? Would love to get into about what brand, where to get, and the pricing!

    Cheers,
    Zexun

    Are you looking for the Etymotic ER-20 kind?
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    I shoot concerts (classical/rock/blues etc) regularly and I use the Etymotic ER-20. Its pricey at about 25bucks (if i dont' remember wrongly) but its worth every single bit of cash spent on it as the volume drops but the clarity doesn't. I can shoot in front of blasting speakers and it sounds like my ipod on 1/4 volume. You can get them either from Hung Brothers at SLS or Stereo at Plaza Sing (more accessible and friendlier).

    I ALWAYS keep a pair inside my bag just in case.

    Cheeers!
