Those are about the best bang for the buck for me. I bought a couple of 2-packs for the family.

MSA supreme pro-x. Pricey but not when you consider what they do. I cringed when I got mine, but would replace them in a second if something happened to them. They are comfy enough to wear all day, and I use them for everything from shooting, grinding, mowing, chainsaw, when the ex was on a rant ext ext.

I want something that goes in the ear. Iím tired of my Howard-Leight and having to adjust them when shooting a rifle.

I have the kind that is molded to fit you personally. Goes in the ear to fit perfectly. Bought them from a vendor in Pasadena at a gun show. Bout 40.00 best I can remember.

Decibullz custom molded earplugs.

@ $25 if you do it yourself and @ $45 at the gun show.

Used them for riding my cruiser as well (Vance & Hine straight pipes on an 1800cc).

Check out the Walker's Razor - $40 on amazon, and they're definitely not coming off your head. Good sound quality and thin profile.

^ This... Good choice BIL. I used to wear plugs and howard leight impacts...with the MSA muffs I don't need to wear the plugs.

For electronic plugs: Etymotic, their GunsSport-Pro (GSP-15)

Just be sure you use something, losing your hearing is not much fun. MSA seem nice.

These may not work as well as some but the cool factor is off the chart

I want some electrics that fit in the ear. This past weeks I had a coupe times where my position moved my muffs away from my ears, nothing I could do about that so I just let it ring.
