    PWTK: Hearing Protection

    I'm looking for opinions on Ear Muffs (not plugs) that would be suitable for use in computer Data Centres - we need to buy about 20 pairs for staff around Australia in the company that I work for. Hoping some people here can chime in with their own opinions/experience on what's good, & what's not. They need to be comfortable (especially if they are going to be worn for long periods,) block out high frequency sounds & be reasonably priced. Not after sound cancelling.

    Anyone?

    Ta.

    These about $40 a pair.

    There's enough room inside for ear bud earphones as well



    The 3M Peltor seems to be the industry standard, most all the F1 and MotoGP guys use their stuff (even if its repainted).

    Good range but they don't always have the best pricing. You can cross shop them against Tiger Tek in Canning Vale as they are usually 10-15% cheaper.

    Thanks for the tips guys. Most places are selling them for $40 or a little under for a set. seton.net.au look to be one of the cheapest I've seen so far, but TBH, I'm not too fussed about a few dollars here or there.
