2.0 out of 5 stars An okay but expensive product, 15 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Alpine MotoSafe Ear Plugs (Electronics)
I have just bought the Alpine Music Safe Pro Filter Ear Plugs and the Alpine Moto Safe Ear Plus.

The only difference between the two is that the music package has one more filter (three in total). The additional filter that the music package contains achieves the least dB reduction (I don't use it at all).

The moto package has two filters which are identical (!) in specs (ie same dB reduction in the various listed frequencies) with those of the music package. That was quite surprising because after reading the brochure I was left with the impression that the Music filters are specifically made for musicians as they are supposed to not block all the high frequencies as a normal ear plug would do whereas the Moto filters are supposed to allow the lower frequencies of the motor. In the end, they are exactly the same. So there goes my impression that the first are specifically made for musicians and the second for motorists. That is marketing I guess...

Frankly, it seems to me that the filters are just a piece of plastic with a hole in the middle. So much for the hi-tech I was expecting...

The overall quality of the earplugs is ok. Since I bought them, I use them.

I'm not a musician. I have just been studying the piano for about six years. I use interchangeably the two filters that reduce the most dB. This is much better than using traditional earplugs that tend to blur the sound a lot. The earplugs fit comfortably in my ears and don't hurt even after four hours of playing.

For motorcycle use, I mainly use foam earplugs. They are much more powerful in dB reduction. I use the Alpine ones whenever I can't clean my hands to use the foam ones.

The included carrying case for the earplugs is useful.

Overall, a very expensive product.

I've previously used Alpine MusicSafe for gigs, and motorcycling and found them fine. Unfortunately, I've mislaid them so am buying some more. I recently bought some motorcycle ear plugs which are similar but I find them uncomfortable so it's another pair of Music Pro for me, both on and off the bike! I use a SHOEI helmet, so have bought the wind curtain kit as well - recommended as eliminates the need for ear plugs on lower speed journeys.
