Where to Buy Noise Reducing Headphones?

I am going to WDW in June with my DNephew5 who is very sensitive to loud noises. He has deGeorge Syndrome and had a hole in his palate fixed about a year ago. He is much better about noises since the surgery and his speech is improving but hs does still have issues. I'm pretty sure I'v read about noise reducing headphones on the boards and mentioned them to DSis. She wants to know where to get some as he afraid of new situations were he thinks it might be loud. Any other ideas would also be greatly appreciated. this will be DS's family"s first visit nnd we want it to be special.

Go to a sporting goods store or WalMart (or similar) and buy shooters headsets. They are designed to let conversation in but block loud noises.

We bought ours from Fun and Function. They are the Peltor brand & work great. They are very comfortable and easily adjustable. I think Amazon has them, too. If you are looking online, make sure you look for noise reducing EARMUFFS.

It's like combining the teacups with a roller coaster

Yes, you are correct. Amazon does have them.

Search for
Peltor Earmuffs Junior
If you are looking at them for a child. Many people on this board recommend those particular ones.

We got ours at Wal mart in the gun section. My son has had them for a few years now and they have grown with him. We got him a set made by Winchester. They are very comfortable and fit him very well and the best part is we only paid about 15 dollars for them.
