I somehow doubt the origin of earmuffs, it seems like they would have been invented long before the 19th century. Adam850 05:10, 21 September 2007 (UTC)

The statement that "acoustic earmuffs were created in Italy in 1982" seems extremely suspect, and I'm removing it. Peltor, a Swedish manufacturer of industrial protective gear, states ( that they made their first acoustic earmuff more than 50 years ago, and they don't claim to be first.

More Than Two Uses[edit]

What about ear defenders as used by people with hypersensitive hearing, especially Autistic people? I should know, I'm one of them. Sheogorath (talk) 00:10, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
