Use Noise Insulating Earbuds to Protect Your Hearing

Do you ever find yourself at a very loud concert or sporting event and wish you had brought your ear plugs to protect your hearing? 

 In a pinch you might be able to use your Ipod's earbuds if you have earbuds that are noise insulating. They can drop ambient noise by about 20db making them a reasonable and less flourescent alternative to the bright orange ear plugs you left at home.  Of course you will want to make sure they aren't attached to an Ipod playing loud music.
