Hey folks, I was curious as to what kind of decibel rating would be ideal for a wood shop.

I don't care for the built in radio and all that, just want simple ear muffs for working around a router, table saw, chainsaw, etc.

Lots to choose from, style, weight, effectiveness and so on.

They have a good rating, they're comfortable and inexpensive.
Also, here is how they are rated, explained.

I use Stihl ear muffs, intended to be used with their chain saws, blowers, and other loud equipment.

I use the exact same ones as Ed.  Pretty happy with them...for a year or so.  Then the cushioning seems to flatten out and they get uncomfortable, and time for a new pair.

I like the behind the head strap so I can wear my air stream.
