These past few years, Thailand has had many opportunities to welcome famous acts from all over the world with full-scale solo concerts as well as massive music festivals.

Naturally, the ones reaping the most benefit are Thai music lovers, who get to enjoy remarkable performances by their favorite artists at the stageside.

However, there are always two sides to every coin. And although we wholeheartedly agree that concerts and festivals are great entertainment, the loud sound that comes with them can harm your ears in the long run.

One of the best solutions to this dilemma is wearing earplugs. These protective gears allow you to enjoy concerts in full definition while filtering out harmful noises.

On that note, here are the top ten premium earplugs that every fan of concerts and festivals need.

SOUNDZ’s latest release, Inferno, is made specifically for professional DJs, musicians, and sound experts. As these earplugs are built for people in the music industry, fans of concerts and festivals should be able to make use out of them just as well.
