Title: Ear Muffs to Drown Out Bass?
Post by: kevin on December 14, 2009, 04:03:18 PM
Hi,

I live in an apartment and the muffled bass from my next-door neighbor during the daytime is driving me crazy.  I've tried industrial strength earplugs and they work perfectly, but they are uncomfortable.  Here are my three questions:

Which of the listed earmuffs at your site would block out the bass? 

Would the earmuffs allow voice sounds so I can watch TV?  (not required, but would be desireable)

Would the fact that I wear glasses interfere with the effectiveness of the earmuffs?

Thanks,
Kevin

All headsets sold in the USA have to allow speach frequency to penetrate for saftey purposes.
I would recommend our 29 NRR, this will be the best reduction without having to do major soundproofing.
