Thread: Hearing Protection

    Agree on the gel cups- they make a huge difference.

    I also use Macks extra soft foam plugs marketed for sleeping on planes. They are different from your typical earplug. Much softer, slower rebound. I put them in about halfway if I'm shooting outdoors. For indoor use I fully insert them.

    They also have youth/female sizes which may be more comfortable since they are a smaller diameter.

    I universally hate all rigid/rubber earplugs.

    Anyone with Noisefighters use them with the adapter plate and Sordins? What do they do better than the Sordin OEM Gel Cups?

    Have you tried them with glasses? I have the Noisefighters ones (Amazon doesn't appear puck to handle them currently), and I like the glasses relief, as my prescription safety glasses, are a tighter fit then my normal glasses (and rightly so).

    Without my safety glasses, (forgot them in the shop) the range loaned me their freebies, which with glasses on get pushed away from the face, enough that I ended up with four casings getting trapped around my eyelids and temples by ill fitting safety glasses over glasses. (safety glasses are NOT universal on all frames IMHE)


    Right now, I am looking at these instead, since available for some loaner/backup hearing protection: B07TZ78TD4

    These crush OEM gels, even the "upgrade" gels from Sordin don't come close.

    I'll surely check this out. Thanks a lot. I hope they are as soft as advertised.

    Think you were asking about some plugs for underneath. These are the most comfortable I've found and really seal and block out noise if you wet them just a tad and sink them in your ear a good bit.
    I double up when shooting indoors with these underneath my MSAs and it's completely comfortable for 2-3+ hours.

    Yeah, I need something to double up. Thanks for the help.
