Achieving the proper fit
First of all, earplugs must fit properly and be worn correctly in order to do the job. If you are trying to get by with a poor quality or poor fitting ear plug, then you are doing yourself a disservice and could actually be causing more harm to your ears.
The effectiveness of a hearing protection earplug or earmuff is specified by Noise Reduction Rating (NRR). The typical range for hearing protection is from 15 to 35 decibels of sound attenuation. The higher the NRR is, the more noise attenuation it provides, as long as it is also a good fit in the ear.
