I was working a show recently that left my ears ringing (again) after wearing foam earplugs. Why in the hell a show needs to be so loud that someone at the back of the venue with earplugs leaves with ringing ears is beyond by understanding. Anyway, I need some good hearing protection. The earplugs do a fine job cutting the high frequencies, but don't do a very good job at all cutting the low frequencies. I was looking at earmuffs designed for shooting, such as the peltor tactical sport and the howard Light Impact Sport. First, I don't know if something like this would offer any advantage over the foam plugs. When my entire body shakes from bass lines, I wonder if there is any solution other than a capsule that encloses my entire head. Second, the earmuffs that I mentioned, and other similar models, have amplifiers built in to amplify sounds under 85 dB, but cut sounds above 85dB. In a shooting environment, where there are quiet sounds (talking, etc.) punctuated by intermittent loud sounds of shooting, this works. I don't know if this would work in an environment, like a concert, with constant sound that is too loud. Does anyone have any experience? Really, amplifying quiet sounds isn't that big a deal. I'm mainly looking for something that will work better at quieting things down than the earplugs. Any ideas? Thanks.
