They only cost about $15 USD. I was feeling like my hearing should be worth more than that so I went to the audiologist and got fitted for the expensive ones. To be honest, I couldn't really tell the difference between those and the Hearos-style plugs - they both let in some amount of high end to give a more even frequency attenuation and both knocked the dB down by about the same amount.

Anyway, not long after I got the spendy ones, my dog severely chewed one of them. Oh well.
Dogs seem to like eating funky things, like earplugs with wax all over them. My dog ate a pair that I left on the nightstand. We never knew until we took the dog for a walk and noticed some bright orange things in his poop. OK, I'm not using those anymore.
