    in the ear powered plugs

    I saw this guy last year that had what looked like in the ear hearing aids. They were actually custom fit powered shooting plugs, kind of like the Peltor powered muffs. I've seem the one size fits all type but with my bad hearing I'm not going to trust something that fits everyone to work well enough to protect what I have left of my hearing.

    Anyone know what I'm talking about and who makes them?


    Thanks.

    Not powered, but check out Westone. They are custom fit to your ear, and one of their models has a valve that closes after a certain decibel. Perfect for shooting.

    Check the decibel protection. If it's not providing around 30 or above, there are much better models.
