    Hearing protection

    These work fine with foam ear plugs. I have irrepairable high and low frequency loss in both ears.

    Trying to hold on to what hearing I got left. There are a lot of good choices out there,it just depends on how much you want to spend.

    Custom molded ear plugs

    I've had real good luck with "do it yourself" molded earplugs to use along with muffs. Brand I like is Radians and available from Amazon along with a easy to use lanyard purchased separately. Every year or so I get a new set because my ears seem to change shape... much easier to install than the foam plugs.

    Plus is the container that each half of the putty comes in, fits perfectly over the drain valve on a Chargemaster, I use it as a safety cap to keep from spilling powder if I forget to close the valve.

    I use custom molded plugs by Nancy Scarbrough and muffs on top.

    I use jet rated muffs and EAR disposable foam plugs.

    I have glasses that do NOT go under the foam on my muffs.
    They look sort of dorky, but outside of a single squeal from over 30 years ago.

    Two .357 Mag shots in a largish plaster walled and ceiling room (about 15' x 12'
    with an 8'6" ceiling) nothing has gotten worse in the intervening years.

    I have been almost paranoid about using protection around shooting and loud equipment ever since.
    Especially impact type equipment.
    Hammer drills, drill hammers, cold chisels, table saws, etc.
    If you have to raise your voice to have a conversation I have hearing protection on.

    You should have heard our large vibration table in operation for aircraft equipment testing.
    An water cooled magnetically driving pitons over 16 inches in diameter that could drive
    at over 20 kHz with hundreds of pounds of load on it.
