MPOW Over-Ear Ear Muffs for $10 [or $15 for newer model]

If you are looking for hearing protection in the form of a full size headphone, or if you want to use it so people will leave you alone, the current best seller in earmuffs at Amazon is the new condition MPOW 035 safety earmuffs going for $10 with up to five per customer at the sale price.

OR if you prefer, they have a newer model, which promises up to SNR 36 dB (versus 28dB of the $10 model) for $15.

The $10 model averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 4000+ customer reviews, while the $15 model averages 4.5 out of 5 based on 790 customer reviews.
