If ear plug comfort and quality is an issue, I know there is a company here
in Vancouver that will custom-manufacture a pair of personal, long-life
earplugs. Cost (I believe) is about $120 CAN. I've been meaning to
investigate this further. Would one look in the Yellow Pages under
"Sanity"? Perhaps there is such a company where you are.
