Default Ear Protection

Just thought I would share this info with the DW world.

Found myself in that place of hell Wally mart- and came across a pair of sound isolation ear muffs made by Remington for shooting for $8.

Compare these to Vic Firths $50 versions- this works for my just fine, I wear headphones underneath when I need to listen to something while playing.

Cant beat this for the price -just wanted to share

I agree. I use some American Optical hearing protectors - like $10 at Lowe's - and they work very good. Very low frequencies still come through, mainly because they make your skull vibrate. Of course, you're getting a distorted version of your sound, because some frequencies are cut more than others, but it's good enough for practice. The point is to protect your ears from high sound pressure levels and these work really well for that.

I have a pair of these:

I like them because the band is all metal and goes around the neck instead of on top of the head. I've had alot of plastic bands crack and break.

I'm working up to a pair of etymotics...but need the $$ for them.

Default Tactical Muffs

Have anyone tried active electronic earmuffs like these: Howard Leight R-01526 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuf ?
$45 and they cut off everything louder then 82db, so you don't go totally deaf to environment and can feed a click track in though the aux input.
I wonder how distorted the sound will be though them.

I'm pretty happy with the "Hearos" I purchased from Guitar Center, they reduce the volume but don't completely muffle the sound quality: http://www.hearos.com/products/high-fidelity
