DUBS Earplugs Block Most Noise, But Not All Sounds


If you find yourself in noisy environments often, you might have considered earplugs. They can be a great way to give your ears a little break, but they can also be overkill and prevent you from hearing things you need to hear. Say you want to drown out the noise of traffic in a busy town center, you may not want to also block out the sound of the car honking at you to warn you they’re about to hit you. The DUBS Acoustic Filters Advanced Tech Earplugs are specially designed to lower the overall noise levels by 12dB, all while preserving sound fidelity so you can still recognize what’s going on around you. Your ears won’t hurt as much, and you won’t lose the use of one of your senses when it matters most. It’s currently unavailable, but normally costs $25.

Hair of the Silence Earplugs Manages to Make Silence Gross


Finding hair in places where there shouldn’t be any is pretty funny, and it’s actually used as the subject for a lot of humorous skits and comics. I don’t exactly know why it’s funny or amusing either. I mean, it’s not taboo to have hair in places where others don’t have any, right? Like your ears, for instance?

These hilarious ‘Hair of the Silence’ earplugs were made by Solveiga and Alfredas Kriviciai. I think these were part of an art series they did, so you probably won’t find these on sale anywhere in the world. However, I don’t think they’re that hard to make either, so if you feel like grossing anyone out, then feel free to glue some fuzz on regular earplugs and you’ll be good to go.
