Passive Hearing Protection comes in two forms; ear muffs and ear plugs. Ear muffs fit completely over both ears. They must fit tightly so that sound is blocked from entering the ears. Ear muffs can reduce noise 15-30 dB depending on their design and how well they fit. Disposable Ear plugs on the other hand are placed into the ear canal so that they totally block the canal. They come in various pre-made shapes and sizes, or they can be custom-made by taking an impression of the ear. Like Ear Muffs, Ear plugs can also reduce noise 15-30 dB. Peltor even offers Peltor Hearing Protection in a Worktunes model - radio ear muffs that combine an AM/FM radio with their proven expertise in ear protection.
