Over the ear muffs for me as well.

Not only for many of the same reasons the other fellas have mentioned, but mostly because my ears simply reject ear plugs and buds.

Although I carry 2 sets of ear muffs, I have several sets of various makes and models of plugs in the Hilti box, the T-nailer box, my glove box and numerous other places.

The biggest problem I have is putting them on.

Of course none of them have Bluetooth.

I have punished my ears for years because I don't like ear buds. Would love to have some fancy music muffs. Pick me!

I prefer over the ear protection, as in the ear hurts my ears.

I tend to wear over the ear protection vs in ear. I have wireless ear buds with my phone and I use those which offers some protection but whenever I need a more serious protection it's over the ear.

Over the ear. I chose that because no company I ever worked for provided them.
They only provided cheap ear plugs.
I was never allowed to wear anything but hearing protection. No music, or anything but hearing protection.

I prefer over ear.
I find they are easier to pull off and put back on.
I also prefer over ear for headphones.

2. Easier to hear a customer sneaking up behind me

Over the ear works best for me. Quick and easy to take on or off and more effective than the ear buds.
I use the foam in-ear plugs sometimes, but I prefer to have some music to listen to, bluetooth over the ear are the best combination for me

Over the ear for sure. Earbuds fall out when I sweat, plus I feel they jam wax into my ear.

Yes Ma'am

After wearing ear plugs religiously for 40 years and now having hearing loss, today I pick over the ear. The majority here chose OTE. Good choice as they now say the plugs allow the loud vibrations to travel through your bones to damage the ear.

Over the ear.
You can still run regular earbuds for music while taking the cans on and off as needed for noisy tasks. Bluetooth, I'd probably just leave the cans on for most of the day.

Re: GIVEAWAY: 3M™ WorkTunes™ Product Giveaway


I generally prefer in ear due to heat and over ear protection getting in the way sometimes. I have had to double up and use in ear and over ear protection, particularly at indoor firing ranges. If i had to choose one to use forever more, it would be in ear ear pro

Not a fan of anything inside my ears, so I've always preferred over-the-ear hearing protection

1) Over the ear
2) Because I get sound protection while I listen when driving my tractor

I prefer over the ear.
Earbuds don’t give me enough sound protection and the over the ear doesn’t hurt after a while.
