Should you choose EAR MUFFS or EAR PLUGS?

It's mostly a personal preference, however there are advantages and disadvantages to each style.

  Advantages Disadvantages
EAR MUFFS
  • Easy to confirm that the hearing protection device is being worn
  • Easier for the wearer to put on properly
  • Can be equipped with active noise cancelling for improved protection in high-noise areas
  • Can be equipped with radios for entertainment or improved communications
  • No need to place anything into the ear (some people just don't like that)
  • Ear muffs will tend to last longer than ear plugs designed for re-use.
  • Over-the-ear HPD is heavier and hotter than in-the-ear plugs
  • Ear muffs are generally more expensive than ear plugs
  • Requires regular inspection and maintenance of muff spring band, shell, and sealing pads
  • Safety glasses could interfere with muff seal and can affect noise attenuation by up to 10 decibels
  • Long hair may interfere with a good protective seal around the ear
EAR PLUGS
  • Lighter and cooler to wear
  • Eye glasses or long hair do not affect the performance of the HPD
  • For the most part have a higher noise reduction rating than ear muffs
  • Wide variety of types and sizes to suit most comfort preferences
  • Generally less expensive than ear muffs
  • Available in disposable form - great for large workforce requirements
  • More difficult to check for compliance
  • Can be more difficult to properly insert; may require some instruction on proper use
  • Some people don't like to put anything into their ears; can be uncomfortable for some
  • If reusable plugs are used, they require regular washing
  • Re-usable ear plugs typically don't last as long as ear muffs
  • In construction, 29 CFR 1926.101*, require fitting by competent person
