    I’m thinking about getting some custom made ear plugs, does anyone here use these?

    Yes that is what I have been wearing. They do a better job cutting out noise. Only thing is the will bother your ears till you get used to them. Mine were sore for a few days.

    I have the sens-guard too. It’s a little cumbersome to put on properly and they don’t stay put when u move your head a lot. But when they work they work great, voices are clear while machinery/background noise is silenced adequately.

    I would like to try a pair like these out that affix onto the hardhat.

    I use them when mowing the grass, using the planer and grinder or working with a router.
    All other tools are pretty comfortable ( or I’ve got quiet tools)

    I use the metal cutting saw and really need protection but never seem to go to the van and get them.

    Wonder how comfortable they would be? Looks like a good idea.

    Yeah, I wonder how much weight they add to the hardhat. Otherwise it would be very convenient.

    That’s one tool you definitely need hearing protection for. Cutting metal is loud.

    That’s for sure. Anytime I cutting or grinding I reach for the ear muffs.

    In a perfect world, I’d wear my SensGuard all the time because they are light and work well (even small amts. of loud noise over years is bad for your ears). I don’t find them to be too uncomfortable to wear like other users, but as mentioned they move around too much, esp. if you have hair or bandana or hat, it just doesn’t sit nicely. So therefore they sit until I use the jointer or planer, but realistically I’d like to wear them all the time. The big muff ones are a little klunky for me, that’s why I bought the sensguard…but I think the best overall are the little disposable sponge ones, I just hate that it’s another consumable that I have to buy.

    The disposable ones are nice to keep in your pocket so you don’t have to go around to find the ear muff, or even double up for really loud stuff.

    I like the Sensguard too. The big muffs are too clunky to deal with unless you just leave them on all the time which is no fun. As to the disposables, buying in bulk helps on the cost big time but like you, spending the extra money doesn’t appeal to me.

    My previous company provided custom molded ear inserts connected by a heavy cord. Wise guys would cut the cord and inevitably lose one of their two inserts. Dummies.

    I have not seen the Sensguards before. I usually use the big muff ones. I will have to look at the Sensguards, it sounds like you have good experience with them.

    I could use some to block out my dogs snoring.

    I’ve worn all types except ear muffs. Rubber ones to foam. They all work pretty well. Just have to make sure you use them. One guy I work with has lost alot of hearing. When you talk to him he always has to turn his “better ” side to you. I have alot of ringing in my ears. Hopefully it doesn’t get worst

    yah i much prefer the ear muffs as well, however if i know it is going to be super loud, i’ll make sure to double it up with the ear plugs as well.

    For me I use the ear muffs in the shop. Just easier to put on and take off.
