Earmuffs are objects designed to cover a person's ears for protection. They consist of a thermoplastic or metal head-band that fits over the top or back of the head, and a pad at each end, to cover the external ears. Here at Outdoor Shopping we offer the best warmest thermal, acoustic, and ear covers just to name a few. Thermal earmuffs are worn in cold environments to keep a person's ears warm with pads of cloth or fur.Acoustic earmuffs, also known as ear defenders: cups lined with sound-deadening material, like thermal earmuffs and headphones in appearance, which are worn as hearing protection. These may be carried on a head-band or clipped onto the sides of a hard hat, for use on construction sites. Some manufacturers combine headphones with ear defenders, allowing the wearer to listen to music, communication or other audio source and also enjoy protection or isolation from ambient noise. For extra sound attenuation, earplugs can also be used in conjunction with earmuffs. Ear covers are made to fit snug on the ears. Great for winter, cold weather, snowboarding, snow, sleeping, noise reduction, wrap around, kids and children, skiing, loud noise, shooting, and noise reduction.
