The Peltor Ultimate 10 hearing protector (view larger).
The Peltor Ultimate 10 hearing protector from 3M (model 97010) represents the ultimate in earmuff technology by providing one of the highest protection levels in the industry coupled with an extensive list of performance and comfort features.
It's designed for use with large caliber or magnum rounds, and it features dual wall design for maximum attenuation, maximum high and low frequency attenuation, and pivoting cups and padded headband for all day comfort.
Dual cup design minimizes resonance in the system and gives a smoother attenuation over the whole frequency range, improving the speech intelligibility. The cups have different resonances, and they're separated by a compressed layer of special foam material. This absorbs energy in the same way as a shock absorber, thus reducing the sound transmitted from the shell of the cup.
Great for hunting and shooting (view larger).

Why Use Hearing Protection?
Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection. To find out which hearing protection products are best for you, try different devices from the wide variety available today. Be sure to carefully read the instructions — hearing protection must fit properly and be worn correctly to do the job.
Hearing protector effectiveness is specified by a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR), typically ranging from 15 to 35 decibels. In practice, the protection that normally can be achieved is about 10 to 20 decibels. The more carefully you fit and wear hearing protectors, the higher your protection will be.
