Attractive earplugs that look like earphones

Specifications

The V-Moda Faders Ear Plugs promise to reduce the noise around you by 12dB. They come with three sizes of ear tips in small, medium, and large. They are designed for people that are around loud music like a band or DJ to protect the hearing.

In Use

Generally, when we talk about V-Moda I am checking out a set of the firms cool headphones for music. Today I am looking at their new V-Moda Faders Ear Plugs. These things are so new that I can't find them on the V-Moda website or anywhere else online.

When you take them out of the package, they appear to be a set of V-Moda earphones that are attached by a string. The parts that stick in your ear have the same design as the earphones. The only real difference that tells you they aren’t earphones is that they are connecting together with a string rather than having a plug for your music device.

I found that the medium ear tips were too small for me and moved to the large versions. They fit snugly and are very lightweight. They do block a little of the room noise around you. With a rating of 12dB reduction, you can't expect to hear nothing around you.

You can't wear these for very loud activities like firing a gun, but they would be good for blocking out some sound during a flight. You can also use them to block some of the sound from people typing or talking in the next room when you are trying to work. I used them for this and they worked very well. I am not sure about the price of the V-Moda Faders Ear Plugs at this time since they aren’t on the website.

Verdict

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Can hear and talk when using them

Cons

  • Don’t block a huge amount of sound
 

Conclusion

The V-Moda Faders Ear Plugs are odd, but effective for those wanting to block some noise while still being able to hear what is going on around them.
