Hearing Protection - Terminology
Noise Reduction Rating - or NRR is the quickest way to determine the level of ear protection a unit offers, the higher the number, the higher the level of protection. Most hearing protection devices offer an NRR ranging from 19dB - 31dB (dB=decibels). For those shooting indoors, under covered ranges or larger calibers, consider something in the range of 24dB - 31dB; these units offer maximum protection. Outdoor shooters have fewer echoes and less sound reverberation and therefore may opt for a lower NRR. Furthermore, some shooters combine ear plugs and ear muffs to achieve even maximum sound reduction. When dual protectors are used, the combined NRR provides approximately 5 decibels more than the higher rated of the two products. For example, using ear plugs (NRR of 29 decibels) with ear muffs (NRR 27) would provide a Noise Reduction Rating of 34 decibels. In most cases, Noise Reduction Rating and the overall style of the cup are directly related. Handgun and rifle shooters who need maximum hearing protection should opt for full cup design, while shotgun shooters and tend to choose the chop cup because the design does not interfere with the mount of their gun and still provides a high level of ear protection. In order to determine effective noise exposure of a person wearing hearing protection, the NRR must be subtracted from the measured sound level (dB) they are exposed to in the field. This method is sometimes referred to as NIOSH method #2. Effective exposure in dB = sound level in dB - NRR. Please note NRR ratings are based on the maximum noise reduction obtained in controlled, ideal laboratory conditions.
