    Look at the NRR. The cheap electronics run about 21 dB, that is not enough unless you double plug and maybe not then.
    Hearing protection and good electronics cost money. I have Peltors now, will likely get Pro Ears Magnums at 33 dB, $319 list price when I need replacements.

    Those $300 Sordins are only 18 dB, which is leaving you almost wide open to muzzle blast.

    I love my Pro-Ears and would buy another pair in a second if anything happened to them.

    I've had the $30 Caldwell green ones for about 6 or so years now, can't remember exactly. Not 1 issue (knock wood).
