so i was wondering if anybody knew the best ear protection for a decent price *decent being under $50* what are your sugestions and where to get them. i am going to be working in a noisy enviroment *auto repair shop* and would like to keep my ears as healthy as posible. so that i can enjoy my cans even longer. i also plan on useing them whenever i got to concerts. so perferably a plug that dosent show. well thanks in advance.
post #2 of 5 has a good selection of earplugs. You might also want to keep a pair of Etymotic ER20 as backup in case you don't want to isolate too much.

I agree, I work in an auto repair shop myself and have found the Etymotic's mentioned above are good if you don't want to completely isolate yourself from other sounds around the shop.

Just want to add that, you probably won't want anything above -25dB or else you will cut away too much sound and actually makes it more dangerous in workshop. Though the ER20 is rated at -12dB, the actual performance is closed to -20dB (Etymotic points out that the low rating is because of the difference on how the rating is calculated over all freq.).

i seen a pair of customs that are said to alow you to have a conversation without going "WHAT????" alll the time.. i think by sonomax? and they are also in my area too.. canada that is... as for the etys i have a set of marshmellows that do seem to isolate quite well. no idea what the nrr rateing on them is.

edit: i dident know the etys were actual plugs i just might have to look into a pair.
