Perfect-Fit™ CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs, featuring acoustic filters from Etymotic Research are one of the finest hearing protection products currently available for the professional musician or for anyone needing to be able to hear clearly but at a reduced volume. The ER-9, ER-15, or ER-25 filters are embedded in
custom ear molds for a natural sound plug with a perfect fit, and because the filters are interchangeable,
you can choose from three different levels of sound reduction to get just the sound reduction you need to listen comfortably
while still maintaining your peak performance. ER series plugs and filters are not just for musicians. Dentists
and dental assistants, factory supervisors, lab and computer technicians, pilots,
and many others who must be able to hear clearly to do their jobs properly can find great
relief via these natural sound acoustic filters. The high
fidelity, flat response of
the ER series filters means that they turn down the volume without distorting
the quality of the sound you hear. With the ER 9, ER 15 and ER 25 filters, you can better understand conversations in noisy
places, reduce your noise-induced fatigue, and protect your hearing -- all while still
hearing clearly enough to carry on a conversation!
Model ER custom ear plugs are similar to Westone Style 49, except that the Model ER is made in a half shell with embedded filters, while the Style 49 are made canal only with the filters snapped into the end of the molds. Both are secure, but the Style 49 is a slimmer style while the Model ER offers more protection for the filters.
Which sound filters are right for me?
To choose the right filter, first consider your situation.
Most musicians and music teachers choose the ER-15 filters. We
recommend the ER-9 filters for many professionals including
dentists, factory supervisors, construction foremen and technicians. The numbers refer to the
average reduction in dB, so the ER-9 filters will reduce the volume by about
half. The ER-15 will reduce the volume by about 3/4, and the
ER-25 filters will reduce the volume by about 7/8. One especially nice thing about the ER series filters
is that you can later purchase alternative filters for your existing ear molds. If you find that you
need more or less attenuation than you are getting with your first set of
filters, simply try another set. The filters never wear out, so they are a great
value, and since the molds are made to fit just you, they are the most
comfortable natural sound solution available anywhere. Additionally, we also offer a "solid filter," an optional additional
purchase. Use these filters any time you like to temporarily convert your full custom natural sound
plugs to a set of normal custom ear plugs, ideal for sleep, concentration,
study, and travel.
Got Ears?® Snappy™ in-ear isolation earphones are designed to snap right into your full custom musician ear plugs. Snappy is also compatible with more choices in replaceable ear tips than any other earphones, and ships with three sizes of Got Ears? Fat Tips.
One replacement filter to be used with your existing Perfect-Fit™ Model ER Custom Professional Musician Ear Plugs, or with Westone Style 49 or with most other custom Musicians Ear Plugs made with Etymotic Research Acoustic Filters (ER9, ER15, or ER25) NOTE: One pair of filters is included with the purchase of Perfect-Fit™ Model ER Custom Professional Musician Ear Plugs, or with Westone Model/Style 49

Product Reviews for Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Eric BarkerJanuary 1, 2018The whole process was easy, and the company extremely responsive to my individual needs. I made a series of impressions, chose the best, and they reviewed them visually, I felt like I had my own personal sales/tech assistant during the process. The result were extremely comfortable and high-performing earplugs. Since I end up standing right next to the drummer, I opted to only use one for my working band gigs, and then I just used a brute-force, crappy, "kill all noise" cheap earplug on my drummer-side ear. Note that custom earplugs don't kill as much sound as cheapos, that's not the point. It lowers the volume equally along the whole frequency spectrum. If you're just looking to kill the noise, and don't care how it sounds, non-custom-fit ones will work fine. Using a custom-fit earplug on my monitor side meant that I could hear myself so much better, and could actually turn my monitor down, to the delight of my bandmates. HIGHLY recommended!
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Derek GrimmellFebruary 2, 2017These are a perfect fit. I made the molds myself, and as long as you follow the instructions with care, there is no trouble getting them to come out right. The earplugs fit exactly, and the noise reduction is as even across the sound spectrum as I had hoped. Excellent purchase.
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Brian KarpSeptember 6, 2016Well made and worth the investment for any musician! Delivers exactly as advertised!
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5SueDecember 29, 2014I was unable to attend the song worship portion of my church service for over a year because I could not tolerate the volume of the music. I tried over the counter ear plugs without any relief. The custom fit ear plugs work very well! I now can participate in the song worship portion of the service! Im sooo thankful for this effective product!!
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Jason ShaferOctober 4, 2014I'm a professional clarinet player, and these earplugs are exactly what I wanted. When you play a wind instrument, the natural vibrations of your playing are very annoying when wearing foam/cheap earplugs. With these, there's still a little bit of the sound of that vibration (which can't be avoided) but it's MUCH better than cheaper earplugs. And the sound quality is excellent! I'm so glad I got these.
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5AkashApril 8, 2014If you get a good mold made, then these will be pretty good ear plugs. The sound attenuation is exactly as advertised, very flat response! They are a little bigger than expected, so people will notice you are wearing them. When choosing the filter, think really well and compare to decibel ratings on your foam plugs you use, because i got the 15's and I don't think they are enough for working concerts, but they are enough for actual musicians since its not quite as loud on stage.
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Kelesha MartinMay 12, 2013I am very pleased with this item. These plugs have protected my ears for over ten years with absolute satisfaction. I am getting them with a cord to help me keep up with them more easily.Thanks for taking good care of my impressions. The price stayed the same for several years before increasing slightly.
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Richard MirskyJuly 16, 2011I received my impressions kit in a timely fashion. I had plugs custom made previously and realized I needed the highest rated filters to protect my remaining hearing. Looking forward to receiving the plugs!
Perfect-Fit CMP Model Custom Musician Ear Plugs (One Pair)5Jim SamuelsonFebruary 1, 2011great product, easy to make the Impressions, super fast service. Very pleased.
