Are there any ear plugs that will plug into your ipod?

This is a discussion on Are there any ear plugs that will plug into your ipod? within the Related Gear & Equipment forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I feel like this would make shooting even more enjoyable than it already is. Do you guys know of anything like this?...

    Don't know of anything like that, but you could always wear your ear buds under your muffs.

    Yeah I thought about that, but I figured it would be more convenient if you had the 2-in-1

    Personally, one should be concentrating on what one is doing while shooting, not listening to music. Negligent discharges and other nasty stuff are virtually always caused by a shooter being distracted instead of paying attention.

    Additionally, if one has music blaring in their ears, one cannot hear range commands.

    'Concur. I hope that this doesn't come across as a rebuke, but shooting is an activity that warrants your full attention.

    I bought a set of electronic muffs from cabelas made by Impact Sports. They are great for shooting as they muffle sharp noises over a certain db, like gunfire, and they amplify all other noises like conversation and critters walking in the woods. They have a volume control, two microphones, one on either side, and a standard headphone jack with a cord for a radio or Ipod. They sell for about $50.
    I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6

    I had a pair of these, In-Ear Headphones EB300A
    they blocked alot of outside noise and sounded great and had a big squishy bud like a foam earplug that goes IN your ear.
    but like the others said, could be dangerous if you do it around others. out in the hills all by your self? go for it!

    Howard Leight makes electronic ear muffs with a jack for audio input.

    There are some fancy pro audio ones that are combines fitted plugs with earphones. They use them to listen to mixes at really loud rock concerts.

    All the ones I have seen are kinda pricey. There are probably some knockoffs that work fine and are affordable.

    here are some typical ones:

    Shure - SE Models

    Shure | SE115 Sound-Isolating In-Ear Stereo Earphones | SE115-RD

    Those are one in the same.

    I have a pair of Howard Leight Impact Sports and they work well.
    Haven't tried using the input jack though.

    Well my question wasn't "Is it safe to shoot while listening to music?" But to put your mind at ease, I am confident in my ability to shoot while simultaneously listening to music. As far as listening to range commands, I shoot in the mountains with no one around. Even if I was at the range, the discharge of firearms combined with hearing protection will impair your ability to hear the range officer much more than a little background music.

    Try your local music shop, they have hearing protection earbuds. But honestly I would stick to normal hearing protection to prevent accidents.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    Not all range have an RSO that uses range commands...mine doesn't.

    Secondly, if you can't safely handle a firearm with music on, what is going to happen if you have to use your firearm with people screaming, crying, dogs barking, and people running around you?

    I don't remember saying a single thing about music damaging hearing.

    As for all the rest ... well to each his own, I guess. Some things, IMHO, are not candidates for multi-tasking.
