Hacking With Ear Protection Earmuffs

[caption id=”attachment_108” align=”alignnone” width=”922”] Me with earmuffs over ear plugs Me with earmuffs over ear plugs in a coffee shop[/caption] Living in a house of 18 people can be quite loud, especially for someone working at home.  After going part insane I finally got some professional earmuffs to help deal with it.  I think they dampen sound by about 30dB, which is pretty good when paired with ear buds underneath.  Most earmuffs are marketed at gun hobbyists.  It’s a pity, because I bet there are a bunch more introverts out there who would find them more valuable. $30 for quiet, $20 if you can wait a few days for them to come from Amazon.  Highly recommended if you don’t mind the silly look.
