Why is Gerwyn Price wearing ear defenders?

Price is simply drowning out the Ally Pally noise.

The Iceman has been greeted with a chorus of boos through the game, and decided to wear the ear-defenders instead.

He had spoke before the match about wearing ear-plugs, though no-one expected them to quite so BIG.

Instead he is wore huge ear-defenders covering the side of his head, but switched to normal ear-plugs for the sixth set.

After his win over Raymond van Barneveld, Price said: “If Raymond had been in the match better and the crowd had turned against me more, I probably still would have done it. But now it wasn’t necessary.

“And by the way, it’s not just about headphones, but then I put in earplugs. I first tried it at home during the Christmas break just with earplugs in, but then I still heard too much. With the headphones in, I couldn’t even hear my kids anymore; then I knew it would work well.”
