So, winter is approaching and I'm looking for some advice to protect my ears.
I've been using blu-tack in my ears and thinking to myself I probably should buy a better pair of ear plugs which don't leave sticky blu-tack residue inside my ears after a couple of hours in the surf. Granted, it is cheap and works well for keeping the water/wind out.
Reading up on it, people recommend:
- Docs Pro Plugs (vented)
- Mack's ear plugs
I'd prefer the vented type as probably those would facilitate hearing, and also can use them diving. Does anybody know what's available here in Australia? What are others using in the way of ear plugs? How do they perform?
I use $1.50 Kmart ones. I've got pretty severe surfers ear and they are the only ones that work for me. I've tried Macks a few times .....not a fan. I reckon most guys have to try a few different types and eliminate the ones that are uncomfortable. For me there's nothing worse than using earplugs so they might as well be as comfortable as possible
GilBurt, here ya go champ
Cheers to both of you. I wasn't thorough enough in my search! Will have a look at that thread
