    There are tons of options out there....check to see if digitalDrummer did any reviews! For ear pro, try your local gun shop as well, they make all sorts of good ear pro.

        If you are playing loud enough to hurt your ears, you will hear everything you need to hear just fine. I like it better with ear plugs.
        Just look for a db rating or about 30. You can test ear plugs for just a couple of bucks.

          As I said, check out ear pro designed for firearms training...TONS OF OPTIONS to let you HEAR thru the protection...everything from plugs with openable flaps, to over ear muffs with electronics in them ranging in price from $30 to $1000.

            back in the loud A drum days i just used cheap foam ear plugs and adjusted them just partially in the ear canal to mute the loudness just right and still be able to hear what was going on.

                      tivi, look into Etymotics. Ive used them for a number of years now. They lower the overall volume of the stage but everything is not muted and sound like its going through foam. I swear by them.
