I need to protect my hearing, or what I have left of it. Close to 30 yrs of sirens and radio traffic it has started to take a tole. I purchased the ghost plugs for hunting and after using them for 2 days in a row, I’m happy with them. I was able to hear the ducks quacking in the air where before I couldn’t, and when a shot was fired it suppressed the sound in a split second, which at the end of the day, my ears were not ringing like in the past. I’m already considering upgrading to the ITE custom.
