HOW THEY WORK
Vibes are earplugs designed for music. A traditional foam earplug muffles and distorts sound. This is due to an unequal distribution of decibel reduction between low and high frequencies (bass to treble). Ever had speakers playing in a room next door and all you can hear is the thumping of the bass? Well, that’s because none of the high frequencies (treble) can make it through and the sound is distorted. The same thing happens when you wear a foam earplug, it's like putting a wall between your ears and the music.
Vibes actually filter acoustics, lowering decibel levels equally from bass to treble. This is done through a special sound tube and sound-enhancing acoustic filters that balance and modify the sound waves properly. This allows you to hear the music exactly the way it intended to be heard, only without the damaging decibels that cause your ears to ring and become damaged.
This lets you hear the music clearer and more comfortably. You can truly focus on what you came to the concert for - the music! Not the painful distortion of damaging decibels or the chatter of the crowd around you. It puts you in control of your concert experience and brings the sound to your ears safely and clearly.
WHY THE WORLD NEEDS VIBES
The average concert is around 98-110 dB’s. Anything over 85 decibels can cause hearing damage. At this decibel level, your body is straining to take in sound as it is over-exposed to noise. Right now, the standard option is to use foam earplugs, which are stigmatized, uncomfortable, non-reusable and were never designed for music or sound quality in mind. They were made to deaden sound in environments where quality is of no concern.
At Vibes, we understand that there is a difference between a construction site and a music venue; a symphony and a gun-range.
We want to revolutionize the live-sound experience by offering a product that bridges the gap between the decision of sacrificing your hearing health for your sound quality.
