    I like to use these as well. I really like wearing muffs, but they don't work well with a big floppy hat ;)

    Does anyone find you get dirt in your ears from using ear plugs? Unless maybe you put a new set on each time you start a job. Unless your hands are perfectly clean all day, then each time you roll them in your fingers they get dirt on them, which then transfers into your ears.

    So I felt dirty & switched to ear muffs.

    Check the earpros I linked to above your post greenology. I haven't bought any foam earplugs since getting those. I find ear muffs too hot for me in the summer. The Earpros wash easily.

    Oh, man. If I had to use foam plugs, I'd just do without and go deaf.
    What a pain. I take mine out too many time in a day to screw around with foam.

    Same here, I've burnt the tops of my ears way to many times over the years. 98db >

    Yep. Company makes a good product inexpensively and with high quality..the problem is they don't have repeat sales and die off. That's why I support only companies that make low-quality products. ;)

    I'm still old-school and just push in a set of foam plugs and don't take them out until I'm done for the day. They get sweaty and dirty quick so I go through a pair a week. But I keep a hundred or so in the glove box. They also come in handy if I'm somewhere and want to fire off a few rounds and don't have my range bag with my hearing protection with me.

    On a side note, when it's really hot and sunny out I wear a Gilligan hat and have noticed that it reflects the mower/trimmer noise right back at me.
