A revolution in custom hearing protection

Pro Series Plugs - PRO17 Custom Earplugs by ACS Custom
ACS Pro17 custom ear plugs

The PRO17 custom earplugs have the flattest response filter in the PRO range. Designed specifically for musicians and vocal performers, the PRO17 gives one of the most accurate responses of any hearing protector with flat 17dB protection across the board. Keeping all frequencies in check relative to one another means you get to hear the music just as it should sound – but 17dB quieter with no loss of high or low frequencies. Not only does the PRO17 provide a balanced reproduction but, for vocal performers, its vented design reduces occlusion, giving your voice a more natural sound making the hearing protector more transparent so you can concentrate on your performance.

Ear plugs with the flattest responses and highest fidelity

The PRO17 custom plugs have one of the flattest responses of any hearing protector worldwide, offering an accurate representation for anyone that requires complete fidelity from their ear plugs. With an average attenuation of 17dB, the PRO17 is perfect for musicians and vocalists performing with amplification as they are able to extend your safe listening time by more than 5 times. The PRO17 keeps all the clarity of the music by attenuating evenly throughout the frequency spectrum so you can listen and perform hearing everything you usually would but at a lower, safer level.

Pro filters – small, compact and designed for comfort and aesthetics

The PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. For starters, it’s smaller than many competing filters, meaning that it can fit into smaller ears without any protrusion – which is great for both comfort and aesthetics. The filters are also user-swappable so you can chop and change as your environment demands to any other filter in the PRO range, giving you complete control over your hearing protection with just a single set of ear-molds. In addition, the PRO series are water resistant so they can be used outside or in high moisture environments and can withstand perspiration without it damaging the filter membrane.

Natural sounding ear plugs that overcome occlusion

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you may have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head (this is what we call occlusion). This is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head, which usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage. This ensures that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all. The PRO filters go one step further by being vented to allow sound to pass both ways, meaning that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding ear plugs available.

Tailor made ear plugs for the best hearing protection

The PRO17 ear plug is custom-made using soft medical-grade silicone so you get the very best in isolation and fit, allowing you to wear them for hours at a time without fatigue or discomfort. Each earpiece is manufactured to the highest standards ensuring you get a comfortable, discreet and effective hearing protector that can be fitted quickly, easily and securely every time.

PRO17 ear plugs and filters have been tested and certified to EN352-2: The European Standard for ear plug hearing protectors, which is almost identical to the AS/NZS1270 standards.

    The quality of the filters and comfort of the earplugs are amazing. I often find myself checking to see if they’ve fallen out as they are so comfortable and they don’t ruin sound quality a perceptible amount. Great if you’re going to wear ear plugs regularly or for more than an hour at a time

    Received my Pro 17’s today and I have to say they are something that I should have gotten a long time ago! So happy to now have professional hearing protection when I DJ and attend music events and clubs! Great fit and clear sound! Thank you!

    I’m a full time music student and drummer. These things are awesome. The protection offered is so much stronger than the generic filtered buds I was using, while the sound quality doesn’t suffer at all. Simply can’t beat buying these if you’re serious about protecting your ears and playing loud music often.

    This is where I will get all of my hearing protection from in the future. Fantastic service, responded to my emails promptly and with easy to understand answers. The quality of the product is fantastic, I am a drummer and they work great. They reduce the frequencies at a balanced level and are comfortable, no worry of them falling out.

    I’m a musician and music teacher – dealing with as much loud sound as a road worker I’m sure..
    These fit beautifully and block sound without compromising quality.. My only regret is that I didn’t discover these years ago!

    World-class earplugs and outstanding customer service.
    The customer service team recommended the most appropriate product, then promptly arranged an audiologist to take ear canal impressions at no additional cost.
    After two weeks the earplugs arrived and their effectiveness is incredible. Even at very high-volume levels, the sound quality is very comfortable and clear. Oliver H

    I’m extremely happy with the earplugs. They make my time at concerts and festivals extremely comfortable, and I can wear them for long periods. Pacific ears have been great with follow up and help with replacing lost accessories for a minimal charge.
    Would highly recommend these products. Thanks, Melissa

    I purchased a pair of Pro 17 Earplugs recently. They sound very good, keeping out the volume, but letting through some clarity. Among the best I have ever tried. Good service from Pacific Ears, as well. I would recommend including the removal tail in your order, as it makes them much easier to remove. Very satisfied. Brad H. Audiologist and Musician.
