Your hearing is probably the most important part of your musical arsenal. It comes free, but if you don't take care of it then you're in trouble.The Lin-Ear PR20 Music Earplug from ProGuard is perfect if your budget can't stretch to £200 for pro ear-defence; it really makes the £15 price tag a bargain.

"Despite the generic shape, they are very comfortable"

Despite the generic shape, they are very comfortable and come in two sizes, so there should be something for everyone.

The vented design allows unwanted frequencies to escape for a more natural feeling. And the key ring case means you have no excuse not to wear them.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
