Have you tried over-the-ear hearing protection? It's made for power tools and the like, but in an office setting, it bestows pure, blissful silence. I had these, which were pretty conspicuous-looking, but there are smaller ones available. The Noise Reduction Rating is the most important thing to look for (higher is better).

>Anybody else notice that fireworks sound like a nearby firefight?

I'm sitting here in my La-Z-Boy wearing foam earplugs, and over the ear hearing protection, and I already have 40% hearing loss, AND I took one of my "as needed" Xanax. I'd turn on a loud movie, but those flip me out too.

Not my favorite holiday.

u/Its_A_Nice_Day · 9 pointsr/misophonia

If other people are still using headphones maybe it's just an unenforced rule.

>. My friend has told me that since I checked 'yes' on the 'I have a disability' section of my paperwork and didn't fill in a specific reason, I can just strongarm HR with that and tell them they're not legally allowed to demand a reason, but we're a small company and HR is already has this overbearing tone of 'but why don't you just conform? It's not a big deal.' and I don't want to create an adversarial relationship with my work

I think you legally have a right to request accommodations for your disability.

There are also earmuffs like these

If you really believe in the company then the push to do what you need to do is important. They just want you to back down but if its a problem that you wont give up, they may eventually give in.

Also, get documentation of all your requests. Put all your requests on paper so that you have a paper trail for everything. You could even get a payout from this. Remember, HR is there to protect the company, not you.

If it was four months ago you're ok bringing it up again. Honestly I'd just wear the headphones again since others are already doing it. If anyone says anything, which they probably wont, Let them know its for your disability.

You could have saved a lot of money and had even better noise reduction by just buying ear muffs w/ ear protection. Something like this - Much better LPT...

u/grnhgh · 5 pointsr/gaming

Depends on what you think is cheap. Maybe 10-20 bucks at a hardware store, or 5-20 bucks online. I'm not sure, I bought mine a long time ago. Search for "noise reduction ear muffs", or here is an Amazon page with some.

Also, it seems like gun users use these things, so you may find some where guns are sold.

u/britishben · 5 pointsr/guns

I like the Peltor H10As. Passive, but cheap and effective. If I'm shooting something loud I'll double up with cheap foam earplugs underneath, can't hear a thing then.

Edit: Just wanted to point out, these Peltors block out 29dB, whereas the active ones ruertar recommends only block out 20dB for 6x the price.

u/PrionBacon · 5 pointsr/buildapc

Headset on shoulders = Sponsor's headset.

Headset worn = 3M Earmuffs to block out environment sounds + earplugs

EDIT: Changed Headset worn.

u/deluseru · 5 pointsr/Tools

I totally understand, in that case here are some things.

If you don't already have a set of 1/4" impact bits I highly recommend the Makita impact gold series, three options from $15-$30. Good strong bits good for everything not just impact drivers.

Their 1/2" and 3/8" wobble adapters are nice, you can get them by themselves, or in a pack with standard or metric impact sockets. $4-$5 by themselves or $15 with the sockets.

This Makita Impact GOLD Ultra-Magnetic Torsion Insert Bit Holder is also excellent. $5

How are you set for razor knives? The Milwaukee FASTBACK Compact is my daily and I love it. It does have one flaw, if you hold the blade section in a certain way for detail cutting you can depress the blade release. But once you get used to it it has not been a problem for me. $9

They have a special buy going in my area for the Fastback Flip, Fastback Compact Flip, and 50 blades for $15.

How about pliers. I love these tiny Cobras, they were part of my EDC at my last job. $26

6" models only $1 more. $27

7" only another $1. $28

Very very tough diagonal cutters. $35

For when you need a bit more oomph than your standard cutters, Mini bolt cutters. $44

The classic Swedish style pipe wrench, always make for an interesting conversation piece. $46

How are you set for PPE? I wear this respirator for 8 hours a day 5 days a week and I love it, after a few minutes you forget your even wearing it. And its super easy to just un-latch to speak to people then pop it back on.

Without filters at amazon. $19

Home depot does not sell the filters I use, but amazon does. $11

These are only particulate filters so if you do a lot of painting the set from home depot with the VOC filters would be better.

For hearing protection I had been using a set of 3M Peltor Optime 105's until I upgraded recently to a combo of 3M Peltor WS Alert XP's and 3M Peltor CH-5 High Attenuation Headset. The 105's offer extremely good protection for the money.

3M Peltor Optime 105 $20

If there are any specific categories of tools you would like a recommendation on let me know.

u/Bilbo_Fraggins · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Buy this and experience your morning blending 30db quieter.

u/tikitravels · 5 pointsr/BDSMcommunity

I'm going to go a different direction then actual sounds. Get a pair of these:

and you will be shocked at how much they cut out. Quite frankly, in a quiet room she will hear her own breathing, etc. For an idea, trying plugging your ears (really pushing them in) and then humming or breathing or talking and you'll see what I mean. They have this type of thing at Home Depot, etc. as well.

u/CmdrSquirrel · 5 pointsr/guns

See disclaimer.

These are my favorite plugs I've tried.

These are very effective and cheap, but they're not conducive to rifle shooting because it'll kill your cheek weld.

u/enigma2100 · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips

absolute best earplugs I've tried

hearos xtreme protection

put the hearos xtreme protection in and then put these earmuffs on

absolute best earmuffs I've tried

it will be total silence

I sleep with just the earplugs in.

if I'm up and reading and want total silence I put the earplugs in and then put the earmuffs over, these earmuffs are extremely comfortable, also you put headphones (earbuds) (for music and movies) on and put the earmuffs over. I can't say enough great things about these earmuffs.

Like someone else said on here your neighbors, landlord, and the cops just don't care. Moving is the only option.
Best advice is to move and never move back into apartments again.

u/gravyenema · 3 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

They use IEMs and Ear-Muffs over them.

> also is surround sound and 5.1 speakers ingame better for cs or not?

You have 2 speakers over 2 ears. Stereo is fully capable at rendering accurate direction. Surround sound adds delay, echo and dither which degrades the sound. It also requires 100% perfect V speaker placement to be even remotely accurate. You will be hard pressed to find a "Pro" that doesn't use "windows_speaker_config 1" which is the "Headphones" setting In-game. I often hear things others don't, and everyone I know that uses the 5.1 setup gets reversed direction bugs all the time. Virtual Surround is better for cinematic experiences, like Skyrim, not for CSGO where accurate direction is key. Also for gaming, most Realtek onboard chips are perfectly capable.

u/Rando_Thoughtful · 3 pointsr/gundeals

This is a good deal but I think the Peltor is better if you have a large head and ears like I do:

u/mzieg · 3 pointsr/learnprogramming

A cheap pair of ear protectors. Been wearing these at work for 10 years, help you get the job done.

u/eawsound · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Ok so these headphones do not have active noise cancellation, correct? You are just using them to block outside sound?

If that's the case then you are likely not damaging your hearing just by wearing them to bed. However, if you are plugging them into your phone and that causes a buzz in the headphones then you may give yourself a notch hearing loss. I have a few pairs of cheap headphones that when plugged in make a slight buzzing noise even when I'm not playing anything through them. Even though it's a soft sound I would be concerned with being exposed to that signal for 6-8 hours every day.

If you can already tolerate the headphones you may want to look into just a pair of earmuffs. I use these for around the house stuff and they work very well.

u/420Hookup · 3 pointsr/medicalschool

Everyone is recommending the boss quiet comforts. They are TERRIBLE for dead silence.

Don’t believe me? Buy them from Best Buy rather than online and try them out for a day or two. That way you can return them if they don’t work out.

What you really need for dead silence are the construction headphones.

These are 10x cheaper and actually block noise.

u/NeptuNeo · 2 pointsr/LosAngeles

You need and want a set of these, trust me, Sound Cancelling Ear Muffs


u/NinjaCoder · 2 pointsr/DIY

I use these for this type of work (such as hammer drilling concrete). I have at least 5 pairs, I leave them all over the shop/house/garage so that a pair is always available.

I am not a fan of the "jam it in your ear canal" hearing plugs, as they get pretty nasty in a short time, and my ears always feel terrible after a day's use.

My neighbor is an audiologist and she told me some good advice: the best hearing protection is the one that you will actually use. Meaning, if you get the top of the line earplugs, but you find them uncomfortable, or inconvenient, you will end up not wearing them.

A 30dB reduction from 91dB is more than enough... 60dB is considered "normal conversation" sound levels.

u/forgetcolor · 2 pointsr/vinyl

Loud is an understatement. It's like standing next to a jet. I tried one out using both earplugs (these with an NPR of 32) and then, in addition to those, hearing protection earmuffs (these, with a NRR of 30). Even with all of this hearing protection I found the unit to be very loud. Afterward I needed to rest my ears, not listen to records.

From reviews, I know many of the RCMs are loud. I doubt they're this loud, but, as you'll read here, some people don't find them to be as bad as I did. But if you're concerned about noise, this isn't the unit to get.

I'm hoping the Pro-ject might be quieter. I'd really prefer to have an all-in-one unit. Otherwise I'll probably get the KAB EV-1 which I can use with my quiet Miele home vac.

u/anotherusername123 · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

i'm currently searching on reddit and a popular one is this: (

u/taytron09 · 2 pointsr/premed

Ah man, I will not tell you what to do or not to do with your life because it is your life. But if there is that one part of you left that still wants to go to med school then I will give you this advice that might help.

Get some earmuffs when you study for the MCAT or take the practice tests or the real MCAT. Lucky for you they have the earmuffs to cancel noises in the testing center.

My first 3 months of studying for the MCAT, I didn't understand anything. Sure I can just read but it would just goes straight out off my head. I even studied at the library too, super quiet. You don't even know how many times I wanted to give up. Then break was on and the library closed and I couldn't go there anymore. Studying at home was a no go for me because of all the noises associated with being home, e.g. Tv, my parents talking. After a night of sleep, I woke up and thought, why don't I get some sort of noise cancellation devices. I tried out these earmuff and from there on, my life changed. I understand >90% of what I read from MCAT review books. I went on and studied for the MCAT that I took yesterday. It was hard, but doable. Also, English is my second language so I'm at a disadvantage compared to Native speakers already.

Take home message: buy the earmuff and use it to see improvements on your scores, and possibly other improvements in your life. Read the reviews on amazon for the earmuff if you don't trust me. They have med and law students backing that thing up.

u/Degru · 2 pointsr/headphones

Etymotic ER4SR or XR depending on how neutral you want them to be.

The triple flange tips on these are second to none except for CIEMs when it comes to isolation. Could be a little uncomfortable, though.

Another cheaper option is a pair of these and IEMs underneath. I have a pair, they will block out everything.

u/Evinceo · 2 pointsr/autism

Over-ear: these are fine.

In ear: I usually buy store brand 33db foam ones, probably similar to these:


u/PlNKERTON · 2 pointsr/headphones

I see what you're saying now. I think what would work even better is some basic noise blocking ear muffs like this:

Only $20, and if you've ever put a pair of these on you'll be surprised at how well they block out sound.

u/kirbydanger · 2 pointsr/woodworking

Use these:

No real complaints. They are comfortable, cheap, and make very loud things fairly quiet.

u/Dr_Donald_Duck · 1 pointr/ADHD
u/NeverGonnaGiveUUp · 1 pointr/headphones

Best bass response I've heard from a closed back is the Ultrasone Pro 900 paired with a decent amp, they are great without as well. There are some issues with them though such as slightly recessed mids from massive bass response. Compared to the Beyer DT770 though, I'd say the beyers have a much more balanced and milder sounding bass. They definitely are a step down from the HD650s though, noticeable step down. If you want bass, isolation, and closed back, I'd go with Ultrasone Pro 900. If you want not so bassy and balanced, closed, isolation I'd recommend Mad Dogs over the DT770. If you want anything good but just isolation is the most important, I'd recommend high end ear muffs (like this with a good IEM in your ears at the same time, nothing beats that in isolation except active noise cancellation. Depends what you want.

u/joelav · 1 pointr/woodworking

Try these. fairly inexpensive, very comfortable and excellent noise reduction.

The Ryobi ones suggested are pretty cool, I also have the 3m Tekk version of those. The sound quality of the music is pretty poor (compared to my Sennheiser CX 300B MK II earbuds). Shitty sounding music annoys me. They also don't block as much noise as regular decent quality ear muffs, so now they sit on the shelf.

u/rebelx · 1 pointr/bayarea

There's a 3M variety that's non-electronic but says it has 30 NRR (better than this electronic's 22 NRR). The 3M version is also significantly cheaper. Have you used non-electronic models before? What did you think?

u/miaret · 1 pointr/offmychest

I have lived with loud obnoxious assholes all my life, and allow me to let you in on a little tip: There was one night the drunks were so bad, I used those. But I also had earbuds connected to my ipod. I put the earbud on the inside of the earmuff so that I could still hear the alarm when it went off, but it simultaneously blocked out the bullshit. I got some sleep, though it wasn't especially comfortable.

u/foofad · 1 pointr/Blacksmith

Buy some good 3M ear muffs, something like this:

They're cheaper than noise cancelling headphones and you really shouldn't be listening to music or any other distraction while you're working with hot metal. It's just a bad idea. Focus on your work or risk injury.

u/fnord123 · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu
u/gc8 · 1 pointr/Meditation

It's more enjoyable and easier to meditate in a quiet environment, and that's why most retreat centers are in secluded areas. I live in an urban area with a high population density. When they were building a giant condo a few feet from my apartment, I started utilizing these industrial ear muffs to continue to be able to meditate, and it made practice a lot easier. I personally use [this pair.] ( But other pairs I'm sure work just as well. Good luck!

u/civdude · 1 pointr/OrthodoxChristianity

Try using ear muffs instead of ear plugs maybe? They go over your ear instead of in it, so shouldn't cause you an ear infection. I use this pair at my work in a cabinet ship around loud heavy machinery.

u/lfnoise · 1 pointr/tinnitus

I often wear ear protection when putting the dishes away.

u/waynep712222 · 1 pointr/Tools

these are just 30 DB and not noise canceling.. do you have a small airport nearby.. find the aircraft accessory store. charts.. lamps, electronics.. . they will have several options like this.. they will also have noise canceling versions.. i have some of the earlier versions of these in green that were only 27DB reduction. and i wore them when i would go to the funny car races.. be sure to wonder down the landing light isle there.. if your car still has small round headlights.. part 46.. there are 250W and 450W versions. so you would need a second battery and a starter relay to turn them on.. blinded by the light would be the remarks coming toward you.

grainger and safety equipment stores and really good hardware or industrial .. white cap, fastenal. perhaps.

u/ssmahony · 1 pointr/GlobalOffensive

Yeah at northern arena they forced should have forced the players to use noise cancelling "3m earmuffs" (like these) which don't put out any audio. The only way to get audio would be to use earbuds. I know stewie2k uses generic Apple earbuds, however some pro's decide to go with higher end earbuds. Either way you don't really want to be using earbuds at home.

But if you are just asking about what headset to get for CS, the most common headset among pro's are the Senhizer's, if you are looking for something cheaper though Astro's, Hyper X Cloud II's , and Logitech G430's are also very popular.

I'm also going to take this opprotunity to point out that you shouldn't be using the default CS:GO sound settings, but you can read more about that here

u/ridethecurledclouds · 1 pointr/TomorrowWorld

I haven't tried it myself, but what about layering ear protection?
Maybe good foam earplugs but then some earmuffs like construction workers use:

u/Teknodruid · 1 pointr/guns

I got These and have loved them so far.

u/identifytarget · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Ok...I'm lazy and I didn't want to write this but I pity you.

First you must realize something.

0) ADHD has nothing to do with this. He has BRAT syndrome. I have ADD so I'm a bit familiar with the topic.

  1. You're not his parents. They have the authority/ability to correct this. From your story they don't seem interested.

  2. Trying to "fix" your brother's behavior is a waste of time.

  3. Don't goto war with him, especially if he figures out he can keep you from sleeping.

    Instead work around the problem. Buy a pair of these. I have them because noise wakes me up at night. It takes a bit getting used to and you have to learn to sleep on your side but it should help.

    Don't get the shitty kind, they won't work as well. Get the big deep ones with lots of cushion.

    If he's down the hall I doubt you'll be able to hear him with these. They are like fucking magic. When you put them on you'll hear the ringing of silence. It's amazing.

    Also get some over the counter sleep aids (diphenhydramine)
    Good luck.

u/addogaming · 1 pointr/dubai

I use these...

u/MagniumXL · 1 pointr/metalmusicians

As already mentioned, you want to do the opposite of your setup. Use earbuds covered by over-the-ear muffs. Something like this works fine for ear muffs, and assuming you already have earbuds, a lot cheaper than spending money on isolation headphones from someone like Vic Firth.

u/kilograhm · 1 pointr/aviationmaintenance

I love these -

custom fitted with these -

The Gel pads last for years and years where as the regular ones last only a few months. Plus the gel pads are insanely more comfortable and form fitting giving you better sound protections. The pads are a bit spendy but mine are going on 5 years with no sign of slowing down. I made a custom soft nylon elastic cover to slip over the gels as the gels can get a bit sweaty.

u/almostaccepted · 1 pointr/drums

Etymotic are earplugs designed for musicians, and they're like $12. This is what I've used for almost two years, and I wouldn't recommend any other hearing protection for daily use/practice/gigging. HAVING SAID THAT, I've also noticed the way my kit sounds mic'ed up and through studo monitors sounds really similar to what playing them sounds like with cans, so I try those on to hear a pseudo-preview of what my drum parts might sound like in a studio setting.

u/kindalike · 1 pointr/Meditation

You can try some ear plugs or some ear muffs like these:

I use them off and on when ever I feel like the noise is bothering me too much such as a TV on in another room.

u/Mirek_HS · -2 pointsr/GlobalOffensive

that's not a headset, that's a noise cancelling ear muff, it has no speaker on it nor a mic, it only serves the purpose of cancelling noise. that's why they need to use a earbud for ingame sound and a headset or their neck for the mic, here's a link see for yourself
