I'm looking for a nice, not to expensive ear plugs that allow me to ear regular conversation but at the same time would give me a good protection against gun blast. Any recommendations?!

I was just looking at the sport plugz xp3 and the look similar to your. They look good and I like the price. Do they give you good protection and how comfortable do they feel?

Very comfortable, real nice they have the little handle so they are easy to get put as well and you can still hear talking. Great plugs! Wish they had them when I was working on aircraft in the Navy!!

The lower number of dB give you less protection or the lower protect you more?
The Surefire sonic defenders are rated at 24db reduction and the others are rated at 25db reduction, technically the other ones are better but 1 db isn't much of a difference. However, hearing can never be regained, once it is gone its gone forever. Better safe than sorry. (i have hearing aids with a built in range setting, and i wear muffs over them)

I can't remember? I always use them with the plugs in the holes. I am half deaf from Loud music and forgetting my Mickey Mouse ears working on airplanes anyway so I am probably not a good judge..:eek:

savage07 - the higher number decibal rating - the better the noise reduction. For example the foam in-the-ear plugs are rated at around 27db. I use them and the standard ear muffs when shooting and using the chain saw. Believe me, use the best hearing protection you can - you'll thank yourself for it the rest of your life.

Earring protection it's the only thing I dislike about shooting sports, the ear plugs I have had were not a great quality so they hurt my ears even hours after taking them off. And the earmuffs loose protection when I wear my safety glasses, they are big and sometimes its get on my way. I usually wear both at the same time. But now I'm wondering about the option of wearing one good ear plugs that would give me the same or more protection as if I wear both and at the same time it won't cause me pain in my ears...

How do you figure out what size u need?
Medium fits most ears... If you have larger than normal ears get the large ones, if your ears are smaller get the small size. I guess you can ask family members and friends what there opinion is on the size of your ears.
