To be honest, the Howard Leights are looking pretty good! And yeah, combo with plugs for bigger stuff seems really good. I think I may just get them. I was wondering though, are there any products that offer more hearing protection in a compact design? Not that I would really need it, but out of curiosity.
The custom earplugs look good as well.
The reason I don't really wanna go with electronic is because 1. They're more expensive, 2. I hear more people having trouble than standard ones. 3. There's too much to look at as fa as features (at least for me), to be honest, I like simplicity, and most electronic protectors don't seem very simple to me. It's funny, I'm 16, you'd think I want something more techy.
