Hi
I'm looking for some decent ear defenders I can use under my air fed mask.
I used to be able to wear my headphone type ear defenders under my old mask but my new IWATA is too tight fitting to allow any space.

I bought these ones from Amazon...FAIL!!! they stay in my ears but don't reduce noise at all and are uncomfortable.
Also tried the soft disposable type ones, usually bright yellow, these dont stay in the ear.

so wondering if anybody uses anything or has suggestions.

Was looking at these orange things on the right as they have a handy neck hanger. Anyone use these before?

Hope you can help.

I use Apple Air Pod Pros. They have active noise cancelling. I don't know if they would fit under your helmet, but I have worn them under a motorcycle helmet before and they fit ok, but sometimes fall out when removing helmet.

(I like to listen to music or audiobooks when I'm wearing ear protection).

Edit:
Forgot to add these: These Ear Peace Earplugs are my preferred Ear Plugs when wearing a helmet. They have (3) interchangeable filters that allow you to adjust the amount of noise comes in, or is filtered out. They fit inside the ear canal, so they won't interfere with a helpmet. They have a little grab handle to get them out. They are small though, so easy to lose. I carry the small stack tube that it comes with whenever I wear them, and just pop them in my pocket.
