Those Hearos earplugs are good and fit snug without sticking out straight.

Ya, they look very similar to a bunch of others like Etymotic, eagasms, etc. And the hearos are one of the cheapest.

Howard Leight put specs on the box for some foam plugs and it looks like attenuation there is basically correlated with frequency. .

That's the brand I was trying to think of referencing tapered plugs. I could not get those things to seal worth a darn.
Sorry about the misconception of the OP, but I was thinking of performance under the same criteria.

Helicopter and myself are going to send Amir some in ear hearing protection in June.

If anyone else wants to see some tested, either let us know which ones (if they aren't too expensive I can send them to Amir as well), or we can time it right to where you can send them to Amir to be tested. Or you can PM me and we can work something out to where you pay for them but I send them with my choices.
