Ear Muffs offer many advantages over ear plugs and other hearing protectors. They are simple to remove and replace, making them ideal for intermittent use. Ear muffs are also more likely to provide the rated protection because they cover the entire ear. They also make it easier to find a proper fit as compared to other hearing protection. Ear muffs are also more sanitary than ear plugs since they remain outside the ear, which makes sharing ear protection a safer alternative. Ear muffs are also more comfortable than most alternatives because nothing is inserted into the ear canal. Finally, with no small pieces to swallow they are totally safe to be used by infants.
