Dear Community I am not sure if this is the most appropriate part of the forum to post this in, or whether I might have chosen another section. So it goes. My question is about ear defenders. I live next door to DIY enthusiasts...with their saws, and hammers and electric drills and other bits and pieces which clearly add joy to their world, but detracts from mine. I have not said anything because that might be the start of a shooting war and I really want to avoid that. And up to a point people should enjoy what they enjoy doing. However, it is Sunday and the noise (no doubt it is sound to them) started an hour ago. I currently have three types of Peltor Ear Defenders including their Optime III. That one - the Optime III - provides some relief, but I would like an ear defender which Really would mask the noise especially from drills. Bottom line, I just don't want to know what my neighbours are up to. Would anyone have any ideas re serious ear defenders which both protect ear drums and mask high decibel sounds/ noise? Thanks for your help.
