    Hey GM, Canada was... Well, Alberta is said to be the 'Norfolk' of Canada, which is pretty accurate. Calgray is nice, but I only saw that whilst going to and from the airport. Medicine Hat is a dump. And on the Trans-Canada highway between the airport and the barracks, over a distance of 255km there are 7 bends in the roads, and that includes a left turn onto the Jenner Highway. I'm glad to be back, although I got sent back as I'm kinda surplus to requirements due to leaving in a month, and they need some people to go and direct cars at the olympics :/

It gives you a terrific headache after a while, and because they require a tight seal to work effectively, you get some pretty spectacular friction rubs on your ears and neck as well. I'd recommend you leave well alone and stick to passive ear defence.
    Ah! You're back! How was Canada!?

    Do some research into the damage that active noise cancelling headsets can do to your hearing, essentially if your trying to overcome a noise with a louder 'white/opposing' noise there are suggestions that this can be a problem.

    Passive hearing protection such as good quality ear defenders are fine.

    I realise they're expensive compared to ordinary ear defenders, but how do they compare in effectiveness? Can they handle the kind of noise you get in an engine room? I've only heard of them being used around firearms.
    Effective enough to keep Danish/Norwegian flag happy and they were really persistent over this sort of thing...

    We issued them with these http://www.arco.co.uk/products/24710...ind+Head+SNR26

    I wouldn't bother. Arco do good ear defenders at a fraction of what those will cost you.
