So, when I've been at the NHRA's in the past (without our kids) I've seen other people's kids wearing full over-the-ear protectors. They look like headphones without the cord. Or they look like the NASCAR headphone scanners, but they're ear protection instead.

We haven't been to NHRA for years and we'd like to go this year and take kids. But, they gotta have good ear protection for their safety and so it doesn't scare them. (they are 2 & 5)

Does anybody know where I can get some really good ear protection like this for the kids?

Any help appreciated and thanks in advance!!!
:cheers:

Thanks, Fake Snake.

Those will work, thanks!!! They look different than the one's I've seen on kids out there; not as flashy (if they're cool looking it'll be easier to keep the kids wearing them).

Anybody know other place to get them just so I can comparison shop?

Any gun shop. Or in the area of bigger stores that sell guns (wal-mart) Then let the kids put whatever stickers they want on em.

Actually ear plugs have a better NRR (Noise Reduction Rating) then the muffs.

Hearing protection is a big thing where I work at, a couple of the guys asked about the muffs so I looked into them. Most muffs will only have a NRR of 18--25, as to where ear plugs can range from 27-35. To get a practical NRR usually take 7 off. Anything over 85dB will leave a ringing in the ears.

So, tonight I am going to do exactly what I want. Again. As usual. Tonight I am going to the gym, and then going into my garage to work with my hot pink mitre saw, cut some flaming homosexual 2x4s, add a faggoty shelf underneath my workbench to hold my salad tossing Saleen's engine parts.

I know this sounds funny but I bought some pretty good ones at the dollar store off of Chippewa and River Des Peres Road next to the grocery store. I bought five pairs of them so that my friends would have some. They worked out great.
