I think I am very sensitive to sound. I'm not sure if it's just me, or others experience this as well. How do others cope with situations dealing with loud noise, or unpleasent sounds?
Ear defenders, I wear them everywhere, wear them on main roads, around construction, in my house whenever I get a sensory overload, get some earplugs or ear defenders
I am very sensitive to sound. I use musicians earplugs a lot. You can still hear conversations; but they significantly mute everything over a certain decibel. They are great if you're in a loud restaurant with friends. I use apple airpods pro with the noise cancelling on if I don't want to hear anything but I don't need to block everything out, just some of the noise. I use the bose over the ear noise cancelling headphones while playing a white noise app for when I want to block everything out. I've never tried ear defenders.
Yeah, the over the ear ones are heavy. I usually only use them inside.
