Westone TRU Universal WM16 Protection Filter Ear Plugs

Weatone are known for their custom ear protection. The Westone TRU WM16 ear plugs utilize the same filters as some of their higher end custom models.

Features

  • Noise Attenuation: 16db (7db NRR)
  • Fitting type: Medium and large eartips included
  • Replacable Eartips: Yes
  • Accessories: Carrying pouch

Pros

Westone WM16 earplugs are being hailed by a lot of users as having the best frequency response and fidelity among earplugs they tried. One reviewer stated that even classical music sounded great with them on. This is because of the smooth high frequency response that a lot of users praise.

Cons

While far from muffled, a few reviewers stated that the smooth high end rolloff was excessive for their hearing. This is all down to individual physiologies so if you feel less sensitive to high frequencies, you may want to look elsewhere.

Overall

Westone has a lot of pedigree behind the name in the world of hearing protection. Their value priced offering provides a great listening experience for very few compromises. If you are particularly sensitive to high frequencies but want to preserve intelligibility, these earplugs are for you.

Although these were previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available that you can see in our guide to The Best Earplugs For Musicians.
