Earmuffs... How effective?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Now I have isolating earphones... Would like these ear muffs block out more noise if I wear them over it?

Yes, they would.  I do that all the time when mowing my lawn.  It doesn't work very well if you wear the earphones straight down though, they tend to fall out really easily.  Wearing over-the-ear works much better.

 

BTW, the ones in the second link are probably better, I use ones that look exactly like that and they block out nearly everything and are comfortable enough to wear for a long time.

Yes earmuffs work great. I use the Peltor President version in the same way when things get too noisey in the environment. Totally blocks out everything and allows me to focus on whatever am doing without my mental illness kicking up. Great way to keep ones quality of life enjoyable.

Ones that look the same are all probably built by the same OEM in China somewhere so I'd expect it's almost identical.

I just took a look and mine actually say Peltor on them too - so I guess that one is probably a newer version of what I have.
