Default What kind of protection do you use?

Ok so the place I work at has just made it mandatory to wear hearing protection. The earplugs they supply are junk and really bug my ears. Anyone that has to wear earplugs here know a specific kind that are comfortable?

I have a company make mine... Anyplace that does Hearing Aids can likely pour them for you or point you in the right direction.

the best would most likely be the custom made ones, but theyll be more expensive, but if youre wearing them everyday its worth it imo

the ones I use are Custom made they inject this type of stuff in your ear with some sort of noise thing you have to be still for 5 minutes then your done.

You can still hear voices and normal noise but they block out noise over a certain BD

I use "Sparkplugs", the "official plug of NASCAR"... I have an endless supply from my school'* machine shop.

I use them primarily when shooting rock concerts - I'm able to hear the music still, drown out annoying crowds, and also I'm able to stand right in front of a blaring speaker in a little club or bar

For over the ear type, Silencio makes some REALLY good ones. I've got a pair that I use at the range. Believe me, if they make the blast from my MN-'44 bearable, they'll handle anything in a factory. I believe Cabela'* carries them.

I suffered a hearing loss in both ears from my last job.
They finally made hearing protection manditory and this is the place where I ordered mine.
