    Ear plugs etc?

    I'm thinking of getting some ear plugs/ear defender type things and was wondering if anyone had used anything similar? I mainly want them for when practicing with my band. I've heard that you can get musicians ear plugs that dont remove so much of the higher frequencies - thus just reducing the volume and not muffling the sound like normal ear plugs. Has anyone got any recommendations or have experience using anything like this? Thanks,

    Matt

    I play really loud, and best sounding ones are the wax tubular disposable version. But they're a pain to fit and if you sing, they work loose, so I use Etymotic ones, that look like a little rubber beehive with a clear plastic pin sticking out.
