I just bought a Walker enhanced neck muff. I liked the hearing enhanced versions to hunt with. When shooting centerfires I use a pair of foam plugs and muffs. Ears ring pretty bad anymore so I try not to abuse them anymore.

Walker ear plugs. I like having he amplification for voice commands and the cut off for when the gun fires.

I also use Pro Ears when I want muffs.

Not only are earmuffs too hot, I find they don't work all that well due to the gap where they overlap with your glasses. It doesn't seem to take more than a small bit of head movement and that gap opens to let in sound. Thereby defeating whatever rating your earmuffs have.

So, I use washable ear plugs (I carry a few foamies as backup)...
Reusable Silicone Ear Plugs

Protect Your Hearing!!!!

I have really enjoyed my Radians passive ear muffs, rated about 30. They fit completely over my big ears, no problem with my glasses, and work absolutely great. I also double up with the Radian foam ear plugs rated at 32. I do notify the range officers and shooters around me that I might not hear range commands, but I do put a high value on the ear that still works..........they understand and don't mind tapping me on the shoulder. Great bunch of people! Take it from me, your hearing deserves the best protection. ....... AH

I have several pairs of custom molded plugs, supplied by my former job.Mostly I use the better at sound deadening foam plugs ( also supplied by my former job) for jobs around the house. I'm starting to run low.

Plugs and muffs, looking at the molded ones. Have found little difference between brands, plus my hearing is fairly acute. And you absorb sounds through the rest of your body.

I use Hearos plugs and/or neckband active muffs, depending on what and where I'm shooting.

I've used Hearos for motorcycle riding for a long time, they are by far the best for me (including custom fit), but not the cheapest. The cheap ones don't fit as tightly in my ears, so if you're shopping for the first time, I'd check the fit and effectiveness before buying in bulk.

fwiw,

i have several cases similar to these.... when work was closing they were selling off most of the stuff so i bought 6 cases. I gave some away and always have some in my range box, car and home.

https://www.uline.com/BL_1089/Uline-Bullet-Earplugs

i also have several ear muff types and again, in the house, car and range box.

i also got some these to try...

https://www.surefire.com/products/ea...nic-defenders/

most of the times now i will double up on what i use. Since i noticed using just the ear muff type there is some sound leakage and just the ear plugs, they sometimes just dont do the job.

with loosing some/alot? of my high end hearing, im trying to preserve what i have left.

YMMV

When Iím shooting rimfire I wear the foam ear plugs. If someone is shooting something louder near me I put electronic muffs on over them.
