Taking my two 7yr old boys to their first big rock concert but I'm trying to find good ear protection for them.

I guess I could just use the headset type for shooting but I wondered if anyone has any experience with any other type of hearing protection.

Have a look here: http://www.etymotic.com/hp/er20.html

The music will still sound "right", just quieter. They go for around $13.00 a pair.

Don't worry, the ringing goes away in a day or so.

  Sonic Valve II earplugs are awesome.

Like with Ali's suggestion, keeps a pretty natural tone while keeping volume under control.

7 year olds will enjoy the concert longer with hearing protection. High volume tires kids out and they shut down.

 Guess I'm a little late to this party.

Thanks Racer X...I'll have to try those out!

I've noticed most earplugs fall out of their little ears though :)
