DownBeats Provides the Ultimate Cure for Sonic Hangovers

DownBeats’ products enhance the sonic experience for live event and concert attendees, while ensuring aural comfort is preserved now and for the future

Chicago – January 21, 2014 – DownBeats, a premier manufacturer of products and accessories for live event and concert attendees, has introduced the ultimate solution to cure sonic hangovers caused by live music and events.  The company’s high quality silicon sound filters were created with comfort in mind to filter sound, delivering a pristine, balanced sonic experience.

Typical earplugs generally silence or soften sounds, preventing people from truly experiencing audio as it’s projected. DownBeats has created a solution that filters sound, ensuring that the highest quality sounds are reaching ears, while the harsh noises and feedback are left out with the crowd.  DownBeats takes the sound and reduces it to an overall 18 decibels, channeling it acoustically into ears, delivering the optimal resonance at a sustainable level.
