Uncle Sam has purchased every style and type of earplugs known to man or beast, for us monkeys here in the aircraft hangars. Most are 3M variations, some good, some just outright suck. I like the 3M Push-Ins w/Grip Rings (318-1009). Pretty comfortable at least for me, but there are other options hanging all over the hangars in ear plug stations. When we run APU/hydraulics and flight control checks, you gotta have ear plugs and ear muffs and sometimes with those two together you don't hardly stand a chance. Of course flight control checks ain't nowhere near as bad as outside engine run-ups...engine runs just pierce your soul, that shitt's soooo loud and takes a different set-up entirely of ear plugs and ear muffs.

A good friend of my family who unfortunately is no longer with us was on aircraft carriers in the Navy. I can't recall if he was a yellow shirt, red shirt or catapult officer anymore but he was deaf as fukk...
