Despite the risk of looking like I'd have a Babel fish sticking out of each ear, I'm interested! Can you buy them anywhere in the UK?

Cheers
George

I’ve seen them on Amazon. I was going to buy but never got round to it. A company called Senner makes a similar product.


Main system - Sources (Kodi-HTPC, Vero 4k, FireTV, Sat) into Trinnov Altitude 32 (8-16) (+Roon), Trinnov Amplitude 8 amp & Vivid Audio (Giya G3, V1.5) and REL Stentor III speakers. Others: F80 + Raspberry Pi and other Pi systems.

I got mine from Russ Andrews years ago. I see they now sell them under the Shaw brand but still made by Etymotic, and now you get a fancy little case too.

I got Alpine MusicSafe Pro Filter Ear Plugs for Musicians recently on the advice of a musician friend (drummer!!)

On the topic of lacquer, I’m not sure how well veneer works with curves (5200, 7200, 8000). They stopped using veneer on 5200s because of problems I believe. I would have thought rigidity comes from construction/bracing more than coating but I guess every little helps.

Personally I like laquer and would pay for the cosmetics alone.

I love where these threads meander. I actually have taken to using similar earplugs and can agree that you actually hear the music better - and preserve your hearing at the same time.
