Guys, which would be the best for band rehearsals, and concerts??? Heavy Metal/Rock genre. I still want to hear the music of course, just not go deaf. I usually love the sound I get with just hear-o's but they wear out quickly. Any advice???
Any of these good for blocking snoring noise? Please.
Hey, did everyone have their packages ship?

I made two orders for this product, because it was in the last minute and I was scared if i canceled and made another order that I might lose the first one.

Anyways, one of my packages shipped a week ago, and the other one just says the label has been created. The estimated ship date here is May 11th, so normally I would not be worried. However, because one of my packages has already shipped a while ago it seems unusual / like my second package has been forgotten.

Can anyone who was on this most recent drop confirm that their packages have already shipped? Are there a lot of us who haven't had their packages shipped yet?

EDIT: I asked support about it but I think he just looked at the estimated ship date on my unshipped order, instead of checking whether the packages for this drop had already been sent out or not.

EDIT: Support refunded me
"And based on members' requests, this drop now includes earplugs specifically for the firing range."

I hadn't realized that target practice was a more widespread pastime among Massdrop members than going to concerts.

I'm not trying to be funny or cutting; I'm just surprised, since Massdrop started out mainly as an audio group-buy site. I wonder if that says something about the direction of hobbies in general: from passive appreciation to active participation.

number of people wearing earplugs @concerts (1 on 1000?) <<< number of people wearing earplugs at firing range (999 on 1000)
I hate to stomp on this drop but those Rooth ear plugs for use with firearms can be found for quite a bit less. Even amazon has them for $13.99. They are outstanding hearing protection though, and i've used them both at the range and while hunting for the past 15 years and can still get top scores on audiophile hearing tests.

The firearms earplugs are -$6, so $12 plus shipping.
I keep a set attached to the case I carry my AR15 in, so I'm never without some sort of ear protection. Super handy.
I already buy the Red ones for Heavy Metal Music. and I just try it last night when I go to the Heavy Metal Concert and I choose the front row to testing this Earplugs. The result from what I feel . The reduction of the loud sound is good and I can still enjoy the sound well without making my ears hurt after the show.
Don't get me wrong...I really like Massdrop, but always check elsewhere before pulling the trigger on a drop. Amazon has significantly lower prices for these. Even the highest priced firearm plugs are only $12.99 on Amazon, versus $$23.99 here.
Perhaps they can be repurposed to help instead with unpleasant odors--you know, since they come in pairs?
These are junk, a total waste of money. Neither set of inserts were large enough to fit in my ears. There was little difference when they were in my ears. I'm very disappointed. Is there a way to get a refund?

Yes, a refund would be appropriate in this case, I think, given the number of negative or disappointed comments.
It seems that Massdrop does a good job with bigger ticket items, but offers a lot of things in the impulse purchase price range that don't work out so well.

I've placed a defective product complaint, and have requested a refund, as I believe Massdrop misrepresented this item. It doesn't work as described. I suggest you do the same.
Got the M heavy metal (red) with supposedly the greatest attenuation available. They give only a _very_ modest reduction in sound pressure level, not what you might expect from the printout that comes in the package.
When I have these fully inserted in both ears, I can still hear the sound of my thumb and index finger being rubbed very lightly together, about 4 inches away from my ear.
They are comfortable, but I would not trust them to protect my hearing. Unfortunately, by the time they reached me in Canada, I had paid close to $40 CAD. The Mack's ultra soft foam plugs are much cheaper and much more effective, though less comfortable.

Might be some general confusion with attenuation, decibels, frequency and SPL.

I would want to hear the finger noise, that would be incredible. Wear them when you mow your lawn for a better test.
Wow. U-Fit green was far too small for my ear .. had to pull one out with a needle nose plier!!
do anybody use these for motorcyle riding if so how are with regards to wind noises you get with helmets?

I'll let you know when I get mine. I've had over 15 sets of earplugs for riding motorcycles and keep trying to get better ones. I use in ear monitors now, but will try these with helmet mounted speakers.
Which ones would you recommend for working in a factory. I use bone conducting headphones and I have to crank them to hear the music. I figure if I purchase these I could turn down the music and save my hearing from being destroyed like my fathers was.
