Hollie Smith

“Basically I’ve always hated in-ears!! However, since I got fitted and set up with ACS/Pacific Ears, it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done. I immediately felt comfortable in them. They have a great clarity & depth so I have more control over my voice and get through more shows in a straight run on tour. Control of volume means my eardrums are happy!!”

Shelton Woolright

“The amount of movement and energy that goes into my live shows, I can't have anything other than ACS/Pacific Ears. I need a trustworthy system that withstands my performance and stays in my ears, but also gives me the clarity I need from my backing tracks. I want and need to hear what I’m doing on stage, while protecting my ears. ACS is the only hearing protection and In-Ear Monitoring system I use.”

The Royal NZ Air Force Band

The Royal NZ Air Force Band chose to go with ACS Pro 10 ear plugs as they are the most natural sounding earplug for acoustical music we had tried. We would recommend ACS Pro Earplugs for people serious about music and hearing.

Pro27 - By Mike C.

I have just received my new PRO27 earplugs. They are very comfortable so far and I'm looking forward to using them at work soon. A big Thank You to Fleur for all of her assistance. Nothing was any bother which made my tight schedule a breeze! I would gladly recommend Pacific Ears to anyone needing custom earplugs. Thanks.

Pro17 - By Julian

I'm a full time music student and drummer. These things (Pro17 earplugs) are awesome. The protection offered is so much stronger than the generic filtered buds I was using, while the sound quality doesn't suffer at all. Simply can't beat buying these if you're serious about protecting your ears and playing loud music often.

ER4XR - By William

I've been loving my ER4XRs with custom ear-molds for a year now. They are very comfortable and the closest I've ever experienced to plugging music straight into my brain. The quality of sound is pristine and is almost never compromised by external sounds. Long haul plane flights are a pleasure with quiet music playing in the background and no audible noise from the aircraft. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

SleepSound - By Natalie Rose

My partner snores rather heavily, there’s continuous building around me, neighbours get a bit loud sometimes and these little things dim it to a rather pleasant far away sound. The customer support was outstanding, communication was fantastic the whole way through. Would recommend these for sanity reasons, if nothing else haha

Pro15 - By Michael Patton

As a music teacher and violinist in orchestras I’ve been searching for a comfortable set of earplugs that don’t make me sound like I’m under water! These fit the bill and the service was great even in a really difficult time!
