Do you wear hearing protection? What kind?

Anytime I'm going to use power tools in the shop, I at least wear some shooting muffs. My dust collector is located within ten feet of me, to the right (as I stand at the lathe), and while it is behind a door, and I've taken steps to suppress the sound, it is still a bit louder on my right ear, so I supplement the shooting muffs with an ear plug on that side, which I find helps equalize things a great deal. I strike quite a pose between my north dust mask, the shooting muffs and my face shield.

From time to time there is a post about dust collection, the great glove debate, etc. I'm curious what others do about hearing protection. No, heeaarring protection. NO, I SAID HEEAARRRRINGGG PPRRROOTTEECCTTTIOOONNNNN! Yeah, earring suspension. That's what I said. See ya.
