hearing protection

Recommended Posts

I alternate between using 3M 1310 in ear buds (on a cord) if I am wearing my Trend Airshield Pro (that has a set of clip on Mickey Mouse ears which are useless BTW) and full ear defenders when doing non dust stuff (which isn't really possible in a wood shop :) )

I have the Peltors mentioned earlier. For shooting I use ANR headphones from Peltor (Tactical 6-S; they’re older by now). Too may years near turbine aircraft and I have chronic tinnitus so I even wear hearing protection when I vacuum. That frequency is nasty for your ears. I’m lucky I don’t have significant hearing loss though, based on annual tests my employer provides. But I guard my hearing as well as my eyes.

I had a pair of swimmer's ear plugs made a while back for riding my motorcycle and use these. Works very well. Cost me about $100. Probably the same thing as the custom shooting plugs mentioned earlier.
