Have used those a bunch. Very nice if your teaching, or shooting with friends in a open space and talk a lot.StoneCat said:That's what I'm using now. For the most part. These cans are industrial but I use the foam plugs too/instead
What about the electronic ones that allow low noise but cancel out anything over (I think) 85Db? I see a lot of professional-types running them... But in real life only see them when it's range instructors who need radio-comms...
Muffs get in the way on my cheek weld. Plugs, with or without strings, fall out of my ears. I like the plugs that are on a band that go behind your neck. They don't get in the way of my 'comb' and the band keeps them in. But you have get the right ones. The orange ones that Hickok45 uses work fine. Another brand I tried first didn't seal my ear canals.
I've gotten good service out of these custom molded ear plugs. I wear them dove hunting and when shooting long guns that interfere with my cheek weld when wearing muffs. For shooting pistols I double up with muffs.
Reviews seem to be mixed with these types of products, but, again, these fit my ears well and I can wear them comfortably all day.
