    I currently have a set of noise suppressors [like ear muffs] that I bought cheap at HD. They don't do the job [I have a Hustler Mini Z that I use on my own property]. Any recommendations?? Brand names?? Web Sites??

    Thanks in advance.

    I bought two pairs of earmuff style from HD with the built in radio. Best purchase I have made.

    Bilsom Leightning L3 Earmuffs have the best rating. Love mine and wear earbuds under them when I want to listen to music. Bought them online at Gempler's for $21. They have a rating of 30 db. They are very quiet but if you want a radio or somthing built in most of the guys on this site like Pelters.

    try these out, you can hook them up to anything plus they dont give you heat exaustion like the muffs give me.

    for plain old noise suppression I use Howard leight QB1 banded ear plugs. I am not a fan of corded plugs and these have a solid band between them that I hang around my neck when not needed.
