The Peltor H10A Professional Earmuff Hearing Protector (NRR 30 dB) isn't some cool electronic gizmo, it's just a simple earmuff to protect your ears, but it's a pretty darn good one for the price. I own this product and it's the best of the ones I have tried over the years. There is one small problem. Although it's not too tight, I still have to take it off after a while to give my head and ears a break. That's one reason why I'd like to try Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones. They are supposed to be lightweight and comfortable, so when I have extra money I plan to buy them and see for myself if you can really leave them on longer.
Earplugs don't do anything for me and I hate having things stuck in my ears anyway, so the Peltor H10A is a good alternative if you can't afford something like the Bose QuietComfort Noise Cancelling Headphones.
Looking at the reviews from musicians who have used these quality Yamaha products for practicing or playing in silence is enough to eliminate any doubts and make you want to buy one today. Having the ability to practice any time, anywhere is a godsend, especially for people living in apartments, dorms or in a house where not everyone loves the sound of a loud instrument. You can play while everyone is asleep if you want and you won't make a peep.
Yamaha makes Silent Brass that attaches to your brass instrument and they also have silent violins, cellos, guitars and more.
Buy one for yourself, a practicing child, or a noisy neighbor and increase the peace.
Serenity quiets rooms and reduces sound by 60%. Serenity is a scientifically proven, easy to apply, paintable sound-reduction solution for use on interior surfaces including ceilings, walls, plaster and drywall. No other sound-reduction process offers such superior results with so little work, especially considering it is the most advanced non-invasive sound-reducing solution available anywhere in the world.
Serenity is mold and mildew proof and seals in lead. Serenity's amazing technology is environmentally friendly, too. With nearly zero VOC emission and amazing Dry-Fall technology, there is practically no residue left in the air when applying Serenity. And since Serenity is applied over existing drywall, there's little to no waste left over either.
Serenity is applied directly to existing drywall just like paint. Replacing existing drywall, adding drywall or rehabbing the surface is not needed with Serenity. Simply apply the Serenity Base and Finish Coats, then paint right over it. It's that easy. [If you have the extra money to spend, imagine installing QuietRock products, then painting over it with Serenity to reduce sound by another 60%. Your house or apartment would probably be so quiet that you'd think you were in a bunker 2 miles underground.]
