I’ve reached that horrible, terrifying point in life (mid-twenties) where I, and many of my trembling, decrepit peers, insist on a good pair of earplugs whenever we attend a concert/sporting event/particularly wild party. The “good” is up for debate: most people shell out a couple bucks for the nearest pair of foam plugs, which work fine, but give everything a strange, muffled sound, and end up aching a little bit, after a while.
Enter the Vibes high-fidelity earplugs, whose mission is to “make earplugs cool.” While that might be a tall order, they certainly make earplugs better. These incredible hi-fi earplugs are designed to not just lower the decibels of your environment, but actually enhance sound clarity so you can enjoy natural sound the way it was intended to be enjoyed. Moreover, they’re comfy as all hell. You could wear these all day if you wanted to. They’re also easy to clean and come in their own handy carrying pouch, so they can be used again and again. You’ll never go back to regular earplugs after this. Trust me.
The Vibes plugs, which say they “filter specific frequencies to deliver the best possible listening experience & sound quality to your ear”, are marvels of engineering that usually run at $23.99. But, for a limited time, Inverse readers can take advantage of an exclusive deal and get them for just $17.99. That’s a substantial saving on an already great deal for something you can use for the rest of your life.
