The 3M ear plugs also passed the military tests. I don't have a lot of faith in military tests.

I thought 3m was generally considered a good quality name brand?

Anecdotally I really like their double sided tape as long as it's stored properly it stays good for a long time. I leave it in the fridge in the garage

it's a chemical and materials company really and some of their products are very effective. Their earplugs the military (US) used for some years ended up not performing to spec and leaving many service members with permanent hearing damage.

the company is huge and holds a lot of patents. they are not a cheap knockoff producer if that's what you mean.

What’s wrong with their ear plugs?

The military-spec ear plugs didn't work. Massive lawsuits. Much more to it, but that's the gist.

The military also put soldiers in trenches near nuclear blasts

More at 10: some people say the military uses some of its personnel to conduct tests on that they don't know the health hazards on

I have faith that the device given to testers works. I don't have faith in the rest of the process.
