Sorry for the preamble to the post about me and my hearing scare.

Point was...it caught my attention and is causing me to be more serious about hearing protection.

I'm familiar with the NRR numbers.

What is the acceptable minimum to protect hearing adequately? I know we're all different physiologically but there should be a minimum. What point is overkill (excessive protection)?

I wasn't overly impressed with the shown ear muffs rating of 22, but thought I'd wear plugs and them. Ideas? I don't want to go cheap but I also don't want to geek out and get a super expensive set. I've got traditional muffs as well.

I think I'm going to keep the electronic muffs AND wear plugs.

Found good info here:
