I currently use these for Line Mx:
https://www.amazon.com/Peltor-Sport-Pre ... B0000X6L82

Although they are very wide in appearance, but they are extremely comfortable and provide satisfactory sound attenuation. Very rugged too for rough usage.

My colleagues have purchased Howard Leights which are very slim and look far more better than the Peltors. But their sound attenuation is horrible and the Ear Foams tend to harden with use which get really uncomfortable overtime.

I've always used what the company provides. I hate wearing muffs so I use foam inserts. My favorite are Laser Lite by Howard Leight. They have a NRR of 32 so that makes them better than most muffs. In lower noise areas where I had to take them out often I used the EAR Pods. They have a 25 rating.

Noise Reduction Rating. 25 represents decibals.

I have had several pairs of Peltors with am/fm and one 3M (maybe a clone). I won't have them without a radio. If you don't want a radio, disregard most of this. The Peltors all eventually fail from broken speaker wires around the headband. My current 3M version has two large protruding knobs that are constantly getting bumped. There is no lcd disply so there is an irritating lag while it announces where you are in the radio band. I don't recommend.

I didn't know about the Howard Leight's but it appears they are cloned at Amazon, so they probably are not quite the gold standard either, but I will try them next.

I'll stick with my David Clarke Hearing protectors. I have two pairs and they work on the airport, rifle range and pushing the lawnmower.

Plus the gel seals for the aviation headsets fits the hearing protectors too.
