I ordered a pair of these hider plugs and they were a great investment. When I got my new job, one of the first things I had to do was remove my gauges. This was hard for me because I was still in the gauging process so by the end of the day, my ears would close up a bit. I worked out a deal with my boss that I could wear these hider plugs and they match perfectly with my skin tone. From far away, nobody will ever notice them but up close and in person you can see that there is something in your ear/s. All in all, this was a great purchase and highly recommended.
