Not recommending, just providing the NRR specs Massdrop puzzlingly left out: MusicSafe Pro Earplugs [from the Alpine website]: White filter NRR=8 Silver filter NRR=11 Gold filter NRR=16

16db? Not what I would call good enough protection for a musician. Not saying that is their intent but, I had hopes...Peace!

I agree. I have a pair and even with the gold filters, it's far from being enough protection in high decibel environments.

Good to have performance information, nice of you to share it. I wasn't sure exactly what to make of NRR, but found detailed dB info on their website. All the models are different, but even with their data I'm not sure which Party Plug numbers to compare with Music Safe Pro's "Attenuation values." "Mean Attenuation," or "Assumed Protection," or neither? And I still don't know exactly what NRR is.

Here is a somewhat more mathematically evolved explanation of attenuation values vs noise reduction ratings (and forgive me if this oversimplified for your needs): http://www.howardleight.com/images/pdf/0000/0264/Sound_Source_6A_NRR_Calculation.pdf

Thanks, I knew it was not a simple calculation. The Party Plug has the most protection of all the options, but it seems odd that it's NRR is specified as a range (16.5 – 21.5) while the Music Safe Pro has a single number for each filter type. Anyway, I'm not looking for a set of earplugs. I just find it odd that anyone would buy these without really knowing how they perform.
