What is Vibes Earplugs?
Vibes are a revolutionary pair of reusable sound filtering ear plug designed to enhance your live music experience, while keeping your ears safe.
While normal ear plugs simply block out sound, Vibes filters sound by up to 22 decibels. This enhances sound quality, while protecting yourself from ear damaging volumes.
Who is the Founder of Vibes Earplugs?
Jackson Mann is the founder and CEO of Vibes and attended the University of St. Thomas. Prior to founding Vibes, Jackson worked in supply-chain logistics for Cargrill as well as the international travel agency. Jackson felt he didn’t fit the corporate lifestyle, and he decided to start his own company.
Jackson has always been a fan of live music, until one day a loud concert left him with a ruptured eardrum. His doctor advised him to wear disposable ear plugs to his next concert, but Jackson soon noticed that normal ear plugs block out sound and damage the quality of the music.
Following his injury Jackson learned that approximately 440 million people are at risk of irreversible ear damage due to live music and that most concerts or clubs play music at decibel levels past the range that will damage your ears.
This is what inspired Jackson to create Vibes. He wanted to make hi-fidelity ear plugs that enhance sound quality while also protecting your ears.
Vibes has partnered with Hear the World Foundation which helps provide hearing healthcare, education and hearing aids to underprivileged children.
