Default Hearing Protection

I am looking into hearing protection for this coming season. I've Seen some on the Forum from Lee Valley.
http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/pag...=1,42207,42227

I recently saw some at lowes that were simialar. I read the reviews and it had mixed reviews Some love some hate. The ones that hated it ALL had the SAME problems. Has anyone used the Lee Valley ones? I want something good and reliable. I do get tired of listening to the same stuff so radio might be nice for occasional use.
