There are some jobs that require protective ear wear but even at those jobs, sometimes you would still like to hear your music. The Plugfones will protect your hearing while still letting you listen to your chosen sounds.
These earbuds combine normal music playing earbuds with earplugs. You know, the yellow sponges you jam in your ear when you don’t want to go deaf. These come with a pair of silicone tips and a pair of foam tips that can be changed as needed.
They are ergonomic in design so they won’t fall out easily and though marketed for construction and manufacturing, there’s no rule that says you can’t use these if you just have a spectacularly annoying cubicle mate or a house full of people that don’t know how to use their inside voices. They come in five colors. Plugfones are $29.95.
