Studiospares Pacato 16 Hearing Protection by ACS Custom
Reusable High Fidelity Hearing Protectors
As a musician, performer, recording artist, or music industry professional, your ear health is vital. Performing on stage, listening to live music, or just being exposed to high noise levels could be life-changing and maybe lead to a partial or full loss of hearing. And this could damage your career, so ensuring protection from hearing damage is a top priority.
So, Studiospares has worked with ACS Custom to bring you a whole new level of fidelity and comfort to ready-to-go earplugs.
Think that earplugs will ruin your listening experience? Then think again!
The Pacato 16 plug is comfortable, completely discreet, and offers the most natural sound of any generic fit earplug in its class. With Pacato 16 you can hear what you need to hear with all the clarity that you’re used to and easily converse and communicate without putting your hearing at risk.
The Pacato 16 is one of the most discreet universal-fit plugs available with a flush fitting filter that enables the plug to sit comfortably in the ear with no protrusion making them ideal for use under headwear or in any situation where discretion for the wearer is desired.
Feel the Music
Offering an average of 16dB protection the Pacato 16 is suitable for use in most amplified music or other loud noise environments keeping your hearing safe from damaging exposure to excessive noise but ensuring that you stay involved in the performance. Using Pacato 16 earplugs you can enjoy your music at a level that suits you without losing the fidelity of the sound as you might with foam earplugs, in addition, the Pacato 16 keeps all the atmosphere allowing you to hear what’s going on around you, and communicate clearly with others so you don’t have to feel isolated from the music, the atmosphere or the people to keep your hearing safe from harm.
Trying to create a natural-sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion. Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect.
A Universal Fit
A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all, but the Pacato 16 filters go one step further. The Pacato 16 is vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural-sounding earplugs available.
The Pacato 16 also offers resilience to moisture and wax buildup. Being shielded from external moisture with the hard outer shell means that the fabric filter membrane is protected from the elements so your earplug will keep on performing in adverse conditions but, in addition, the filters and plugs can be cleaned to keep them performing for years to come.
The Pacato 16 plugs from ACS offer a perfect cost-effective solution to protect your hearing in a variety of environments whilst making sure that you get one of the most natural-sounding earplugs available.
"I was introduced to the Pacato a little while back and after trying them for just a few minutes, I was hooked. Being a bassist, I’m usually positioned next to the drummer and would often suffer from ringing in my ears or even headaches after gigs and rehearsals. But that’s stopped since using the Pacato’s and their filtering system. I can still hear everything, but just 16dB quieter."
