I know I posted a thread with the same title a few months back but now since the season is over I can make the change over to trying to shoot with an iPod and if it doesn't work for me I can blame my scores on the weather.

It's not too easy to find earbuds that also reduce dB so I called Skullcandy and they recommended I try these:

but instead of using the rubber ear bud switch to the foam buds below.

Should these do the job? I'm trying to avoid going deaf.

I've seen the moulded silicone plugs with earbuds moulded in - you get the protection of the silicone plugs and the 'tunes' as well.

Ear buds aren't intended to provide hearing protection.

Get the custom molded ones from E.A.R.

I suggest you do a search for the login BIG PAPA and find his molded ear plugs.

I have them and shoot in them and also use them just to listen to my IPOD...

PM is I can help......

Are they soft? The last molded plugs I had weren't soft enough and allowed quite a bit of sound in.

If you're near eastern PA, try Ken Foster in Chalfont. He made a molded pair for both my wife an I. She loves them and she doesn't even shoot. He uses two differeent types of material in the same plugs, hard and soft.``

Here is a pic of some from BIG PAPA's....





OH yea you use your own headset so if they go bad you can replace the headset, which is one reason I like mine....

Take a look at Shure ear bud sets. About $99 buys you a superb set with interchangeable earpieces. Use the finned soft plastic ones, or the cylindrical foam ones. The foam ones cut loudness by about 30dB. That's the same as the Remington or other foam plugs.

One of the hearing aid doctors in my area does custom plugs so I'm going to contact him tomorrow and see what I can get done this week.
