The 10 Best Digital Ear Plugs
This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in October of 2018. Whether you’re a gun hobbyist, hunter, or an industrial worker, you probably have something to gain by owning a pair of digital earplugs. Their primary function is to actively suppress sound above a certain decibel level, so as to protect your ears from hearing damage. Aside from this, though, some models also enhance soft noises, providing you with a heightened degree of situational awareness. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best digital ear plug on Amazon.

While many of the models we chose have similar technical specs, the quality gap between the highest- and lowest-ranking products is important. Many of the lower-ranking items are decent, if not plain old good, except for a major technical flaw here, or a design oversight there, such as the SportEar Ghost Stryke's lack of an on/off button. The items that are at the top of the list, then, tick all the right boxes. The 3M Peltor TEP-200 are the perfect example of this. Between their dust- and water-resistance, sheer comfort, intuitive accessibility and their inclusion of an on/off button (genius!), they've got it all.
