Before reading why these SensGard hearing protectors are so good, consider if you share some of the problems I have had with other protectors.
I do not like stuffing things into my ear canals, such as foam plugs that must be compressed with often dirty fingers, then uncomfortably jammed in, only to later work loose. The various silicone plugs, even those with high-tech designs, are nonetheless also stuck in the ear canal like a cork in a wine bottle. I find them unpleasant, especially for intermittent use in the woodshop.
Earmuffs are cumbersome, tend to bump into things and get sweaty. Worse, despite their soft padding, muffs squeeze the temple arms of my eyeglasses against my skull. It isn’t long before I choose the noise over the headache.
