"I've been wearing Etymotic's Musicians Earplugs for about 20 years now and have loved every second of it. Whether it was on stage with a band, or during my days as a bouncer in some of the biggest and loudest bars and nightclubs in the country, I always had my Musicians Earplugs with me. Today, I keep an ER-20XS in my pocket at all times, and extra sets of ETY-Plugs in my car for friends. Whenever the topic of ears comes up, I always brag about Etymotic. The incredible staff keeps outdoing themselves with more lines of great high-quality products-the mark of a company that truly listens to its customer base and knows what we need in the real world. My hearing is my life, so seeing Etymotic's constant strive for perfection and excellence lets me know my ears are in the right hands."
