I bought a set from the NRA store, $25. Less than 2oz and far more comfortable to wear than the plastic ear plugs I normally use. I can hear normal conversation, but the gun blasts don't get to me. I mean I hear them of course, but no pain or discomfort from them. They have a claimed 26 decible reduction, and something about using the mechanics of sound to protect your hearing. Unlike muffs or plugs, I forget I have them on after a few minutes. I think they're great and worth the money.
