Hearing protection

Foam earplugs: The most common type of earplugs. Foam earplugs, are readily available at retail stores and do not require professional fitting. They are usually used for one-time exposure to hazardous noise.

Tactical Earplugs: Are reusable, available in multiple sizes, and fitted by a professional. They are used when good communication and situational awareness are important. With the earplug switch, you can choose whether hearing protection is needed for steady noise (airplanes, generators) or sudden sounds (fire, explosions).

Headset: prevent noise from entering the ear canal and are easy to put on and take off. Headphones reduce noise better than earplugs because the earcups fit snugly around the ears, creating an airtight seal. They are often used on the shooting range.
