From the makers of the awesome line of V-moda headphones comes the V-moda Faders. They filter harmful noise levels (12dB reduction) and are used to help protect your ears at clubs, concerts, other such loud events, and for musicians. They are metal and come with detachable cables, so that you can leave them in your ears without having them be connected to one another. They come in several different colors and have a nifty carrying case. They come in three sizes to fit any ear and you can still hear music and speech when you have them on.
