Its nice to find a product that you like. I don't think I can use that kind because I generally double up for my rifles & when both of us are shooting it can be really loud, even outside.

I've read plugs and muffs at the same time are the best ear protection.

I’ve used that style in generally noisy environments. But for shooting I double up with over ear muffs. The post on those press against the foam in the muffs so I use foam plugs.

I've heard the same....."especially" at an indoor shooting range.

+1 I have a brand called Sonic Ear I think. They are foam covered metal valves, had them for 40 years, work great in the field! I bought some of those for the wife, I don't thinc the Sonics are around any more.

Have some of these as well: I think they were a new version

When I hunt I use attenuation ear plugs and they do work for that. Usually use muffs at the range and foam plugs when I need to drown out other noise. I use other style plugs when I operate power equipment like the ones held under the chin by breakable plastic retainers so I can wear a hat.

I see Hickok45 uses plugs like that. Doesn't seem to be enough protection for the amount of shooting as he does.

I've got foldable Howard Leight LOF muffs for my outdoor range. The cups are compact, don't interfere with a rifle stock. They work well outdoors, even next to a .50 black powder gun or short barrel ARs. Nice feature is that you can get replacement cushions.

I think I've got what 44s said, Sonic Ear Valves, look like his photo, but mine are red. They seem to work okay, but they aren't comfortable for me. I got them years ago for about $ 10, IIRC.

Yard work gets a pair of cheapo muffs from Lowe's over a ball cap. Hard to hear that mower is running.

I’m trying out new ear plugs and always wanted to know what ones were the best.

I hadn't seen the above article before but we did buy a huge box of the Moldex 6800 a few years ago. Easy to throw a fresh packet in a pocket if we get into noise. Often wear them in a Hotel while travelling and trying to sleep.

The idea set up for shooting is plugs under muffs but when shooting some long guns muffs don't work well.
