Best 3 Tips On How To Save Your Hearing While DJing

So you may have read my article, “How Beats By Dre Can Damage Your Ears,” and now want to protect your ears while DJing. Well, you’ve come to the right place. Some may say that you can just turn down the volume on your headphones, however that doesn’t work many times for two reasons. 1.) If it is too low, you cannot hear the song you’re trying to cue up. 2.) It can get very loud in the club or wherever you’re DJing, and that sound will seep past your headphones and into your ears. So, here are the best three tips on how to save your hearing while DJing.

  1. Simple ear plugs. Cheap, disposable, and effective. The only problem I have with this solution is that it can (obviously) make the sound too muffled. This is good for protecting your ears, but you can’t enjoy the music. Anyways, it still works and this was my primary way I protected my ears in my DJ days. Plus they’re practical because you can find ear plugs anyway – just make sure they weren’t used before (eww ear wax)!best-three-tips-on-how-to-save-your-hearing-while-djing-buy-hearo-ear-plugs
  2. Custom ear plugs (ACS Custom). You can get any kind of custom ear plugs, but a lot of people like the ACS Custom ear plugs (even Armin Van Buuren). These will be molded right to your ear and are the best choice for making sure your ears will be safe in the loud environment. However, these are not essential, but they will be the highest quality. You can also buy a pair of monitors for your ears from them, however they’re even more pricey.
  3. (Bonus) If you want another solution, then you can always get a decent pair of in-ear headphones (I thought I’d throw this in a bonus to the best three tips on how to save your hearing while DJing). I bought these and they’re great! They’re the MEElectronics Sport-Fi M6 – don’t mind Amazon’s ratings, I’ve had mine for YEARS and they’re great. One time mine broke and I contacted MEElectronics and they replaced them for FREE – great company and great sound in my opinion. Plus, they’ve enforced the build of them over the years. NOTE: you’ll need a headphone plug to 1/4″ adapter in order to plug these into your DJ mixer! I’ve used this setup before and it’s great!best-three-tips-on-how-to-save-your-hearing-while-djing-MEElectronics-in-ear-headphones-monitors
