After years of neglecting ear protection for myself, I decided to purchase this item when I started to suffer tinnitus following a car accident. Whilst I am somewhat reassured that the condition is likely to remedy itself over the coming months, it made me realise how important my hearing is and so I purchased this item.
They fit snugly and are very comfortable, being lightweight. They certainly muffle the noise from my chainsaw, leaf blower, strimmer and hedge cuttter and combined with a face mask to protect my eyes have resulted in me being somewhat more protected than I have been in previous years.
THis item is very reasonably priced and for the occasional user, such as myself, are more than up to the job. I am not sure that they would cope with the rigours of daily use for someone who relied upon them in their work, but for the weekend user like myself, they are ideal and cheap enough to replace should you lose them!
