Laser Lite, Howard Leight
The earplugs are comfortable and provide high sound protection. An alternative are the Hearos Ultimate Softness Series, which are about evenly comfortable, but provide a slightly stronger sound protection.
For foam earplugs, the Howard Leight Laser Lite are a very good choice for listening to music. They have a relatively flat attenuation curve, which results in a good sound quality (that is for a foam earplug). They are a good choice for loud concerts. The Laser Lite are strong earplugs (33.40dB at 63Hz up to 44.10dB at 8000Hz). If they are felt to be too strong, then alternatives such as the Alpine PartyPlug could be considered. An even better choice for listening to music 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.
The Laser Lite are strong earplugs with an SNR of 35dB and high attenuation at all frequencies (63Hz to 8000Hz). In addition to earplugs, earmuffs should be worn.
