Fab Blab

We've bedazzled cell phones, iPods, Bluetooth headsets . . . and now the latest item being blinged out is the earplug. The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) has launched a competition to find an earplug that's socially acceptable.

"Because of Bluetooth headsets and iPods, people are getting more used to the idea of putting things in their ears that are fashionable," said a spokeswoman. Designer earplugs may cost you a bit more ($20-$30), but it may be worth it for those who go clubbing often. Would you consider investing in designer earplugs or would you rather succumb to hearing damage?

Id get the earplugs anyday. By the way why do people always slag off headset users, but accept ipod users, whats the difference, theyre just bits of plastic in your ear!!

Ive never been to a club where it was actually load enough that you would need earplugs...maybe a concert..if I was sitting right next to the speakers, but to a, I cant hear what anyone is saying anyway, that really wouldnt help.
