Ear Plugs

So, I went to a Eric Johnson concert the other day and realized that I REALLY need a good set of ear plugs. I hate using those damn foam things, it turns everything into mud. What hi-quality ear plugs do you use? I'm looking for some that won't reduce the sound dramatically, but get rid of the ear ringing that usually occurs after a loud concert.

Re: Ear Plugs

Haha yeah I'm with Andy on this. I come out from our band's jam room and my ears are ringing.

I like Etymotic's one. $300 for a good set.

Re: Ear Plugs

i use these and they work great...im also a drummer so these limit some sound out but not to the point where everything sounds muffled and cardboard like.

Re: Ear Plugs

I've used Sonic II hearing protectors and they are great and only about $20 I think.

Re: Ear Plugs

I have a pair of the Etymotic "Musician Earplugs" made by a company here in europe.

They even fit the ER6-headphones which makes it the best sounding headphones I ever used on a mp3-player.
