Maybe it's just me but, I can't seem to find buds that are comfortable. I visit sawmills on a daily basis and some equipment is quite loud. I've tried several different styles and makes of buds and they always seem to get loose or even fall out. I see many shop/plant workers have the ear muff style protection attached to their helmets. I asked my boss for some and he said to buy them and put the bill on my expense account. Any comments on these types of protection, obviously if I find them comfortable I could also use them in my shop, but then again, I don't feel like wearing a hard hat in my home shop. Some people spend $$$ on frequency control head sets ? are they worth the expense ?
Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
