While there are other hearing protection gadgets available, most soldiers opt not to wear them since they interfere with the surrounding noise which could prove to be fatal.

However the Electronic Blast PLG Earplugs reduce the noise generated by explosions or machine gunfire which produce loud noise but at the same time allow natural hearing.
