does anyone know where to find ear defenders like thsese ones?? , they look like from big 5 sporting goods, exept I am in UK and there isn't any shops like that here.
I contacted big 5 on facebook and they didn't reply.

I found the pics on a random website, but there was no information or anything just these pictures on the page.

very noise sensitive and did have similar ones to these that I loved called silencio ones, but they broke.

you can always try hardware stores normally they should be in either the power tool section or the tools section. if you can't find them in the hardware store try a sporting goods store.

These are industrial ones

You should try a health and safety supplier

I Googled around and found a couple of sites with some heavy duty looking ones that are in the UK. Here they are.

Uttings.Co.UK - ear defenders.

SafetyStock.co.uk - ear defenders

I hope you can find something there that works for you. Some of them are really expensive, but if you are very sensitive, it's probably worth paying that much. Good luck!

there isn't any around where I live in the UK
there is a "hardware" place but they don't sell any
and there is a "sporting goods" place but in the UK we don't sell guns In shops so they only sell sports clothes not shooting acessories

Autisticgamer, I understand you are a Brit and aren't fortunate enough to be able to own firearms, but the best ear plugs I've found are designed to be used with shooting weapons. In fact, I have earplugs that will allow in the human voice and nothing else. If something like this would work for you, I would recommend googling American firearms sites' and looking at ear protection.

Hardware stores Like Ace or home depot carry them though i realize you don't have similar hardware shops as i do. assuming "hardware" was meant for firearms is rather stupid. i question if your simply trolling or actually made an attempt to search.

i don't know if you were trying to be smart or just an ignorant person. i was trying to assist. if you wish to be a jerk that's fine.

Methinks you read too quickly Ramba. He was thinking "sporting goods" stores might have ear protection as a shooting accessory. I would agree with his assumption. No trolling, just misunderstanding.

it's a habit i'm incapable of destroying. i still find it strange that he/she hasn't bothered to search all available venues besides brick and mortar shops.

in the UK no such shops exist there is one place that sells DIY items, and they don't sell ear protection.

in the UK ear defenders are only associated with DIY handling loud tools.

business for major DIY companys isn't very good here and many of them have closed down. I did go to one of the only remaning types avalible in the UK and they don't have any for sale.

I did "bother" to look
I have a linked picture of the ones I am looking for, I am after ones like the ones I have a link to in the picture they are an American brand (I know big 5 is a americna) company, I have looked all over the internet and this picture is the best I found, I watched a video of a boy with autism wearing them (search cdfoakly or kggcount in youtube) I have asked them repeatedly where they bought them they only told me "big 5"
I have looked all over the internet for these brand of ear defenders and the linked picture is the best ive found and been searching for at least a year now, I posted bevause some people on here are American and might have some ideas.

in the UK ear defneders are only accosiated with building and DIY there is no such thing as finding them in a place like a sports shop in this country.

I was not being a jerk at all I am sorry if you misunderstood what I replied with.
I was simply telling you ear defenders are not widly sold in the UK.
I notice the links you sent, thank you.
there isn't any homebase stores anywhere near where I am as far as I know the retial shops closed down and they only have a website now,
I don't have a bank card so I cant buy online.

Is there a reason you are looking for specifically this brand of ear defender? It might be easier to help you find others, I checked on big 5s website and they don't sell any that look like that anymore on their website, only ones of other brands (actually the brand I have some of).

If you have some specific requirements that aren't "are this pictured one" then I'd be willing to help try to find a recommendation, but I've looked and can't find that anywhere, it really looks like its not made anymore, which is unfortunate because its the one you wanted. I'm sorry I can't be more help.
