Review

Alpine PartyPlug Alpine Hearing Protection. Picture 2 earplugsDecibel Chart Alpine PartyPlug The main advantage of the Alpine PartyPlug earplugs is that they are barely invisible when worn. They provide medium sound reduction. For these two reasons, they are often used for clubs or concerts. They are reusable.

Because they only provide only around 9-13dB of sound reduction at low sounds, they will be insufficient for protection from really loud sound at these frequencies.

Music


The Partyplug is a respectable choice for listening to music of medium loudness. The sound quality is acceptable. In addition, the earplugs are not very visible when worn. That makes them a good choice for bars, pubs, not very loud concerts, and similar venues. The Partyplug is a rather weak earplug and does not provide sufficient protection for really loud concerts (only 8.8dB at 63 Hz up to only 25.4dB at 2000Hz). If the music is really loud, then stronger earplugs should be used. Foam earplugs are usually stronger. A good choice for a foam earplug is the Bilsom 303 due to its good sound quality for a foam earplug. If sound quality is important, then by far the best choice are the custom molded ER15 or ER25 earplugs, but they are much more expensive. Also have a look at our article on listening to music.

Invisibility


If the transparent color is chosen, then they are not very visible when worn. The stem that sticks out of the ear is not very long.

Sleeping


The Alpine Partyplug is not a good choice for sleeping. The attenuation is too weak and the stiff stem of the plug is uncomfortable.

Shooting


The Alpine Partyplug only provides medium sound reduction. This is insufficient for shooting.

Swimming


They are not usable for swimming.

Motorcycle


The Alpine Partyplug is not a good choice for motorcycling. Foam earplugs provide more protection and are more comfortable to wear.

Travel


Foam earplugs are cheaper than Partyplugs and provide more sound reduction.

Comfort


The material of the earplug is soft and comfortable when worn.

Size


The Alpine Partyplug is only available in one size.

Color


They are available in transpartent, white, silver grey, and black.
