The watersports ones are a different set.

I agree you still shouldn't stand in front of the speakers (although I have, and have had no trouble sometimes, other times I have and still had ringing ears), but on the whole I have found them to be very effective since I started using them five years ago. The first pair I bought came from a drum shop.

I've worn earplugs since summer 2009 and am seriously glad I did. I just wear the cheap earplugs from CVS and they work wonders.

i only wear plugs every few shows, but the ones i do put in are the ones that came with my rifle. they work great, the sound gets a little bit muffled, but no ringing after or during the show at all

I bring earplugs to every show I go to. If it's an outdoor venue and I'm a distance from the stage, they probably won't go in. But, if it's an indoor venue it's basically a must. To me, it makes the music sound clearer in the kind of indoor venues most metal shows are at. They are an absolute must for the electronic shows I go to. Bassnectar gives out free plugs at all his shows and a guy who wears Napalm Death shirts while pumping out that kind of bass wobble should know a thing or two about hearing loss.

I'm usually always at the rail, and usually always near a speaker, but I haven't had ringing in my ears for a while. Earlier in the year my ears would ring the day after, but the past few months I haven't had any ringing at all.

i have tinnitus too, undiagnosed technically but there's no point in going to a doctor because they can't do shit for you. i've started using plugs, i like it. just get the foam ones that you twist and put into your ear. it's great actually, you don't feel like shit after, if you're talking to someone they can scream right into your ear without it bothering you (which is a huge fucking pet peeve of mine at shows), and it's healthier. plus you can hear the music better without the wall of sound hitting your drums as hard.
