British charity Action on Hearing is advising Brits to protect their hearing this holiday by donning earplugs before going to holiday parties. I agree. At a recent holiday party, these came in handy:
Ah, the joy of musician’s earplugs. Not cheap at $250 (your price may vary), but they are fitted, long-lasting, and the cost may be covered by health insurance or flexible spending accounts. There are a variety of filters (the round white disc you see in the photo), but I opted for 25 decibels. And while everyone was talking about how loud the music was, for once I was perfectly comfortable.
So have fun this season and enjoy the holiday parties, but don’t leave home without your earplugs!
