      Hey Everyone! On Sunday I am flying to Italy for my first big vacation in YEARS and I am going to be on a 7+hour flight from New York to Dusseldorf for the first leg of our trip. My question is: Is it safe to have musicians plugs in during take off and landing? I know that the consensus seems to be that you shouldn't have foam plugs in during take off and decent for pressure equalization purposes but would having the musicians plugs be ok? I ask this because the musicians plugs are a vented with a filter and don't completely shut off the ear from sound pressure. I have bought a pair of Earplane plugs but I know they don't provide much as far as sound protection...
      This is what they look like.
