I use the ear muff type hearing protectors when using most of my bigger tools. The router table is a good example. I swear that thing is louder than a jet engine when I have a cabinet bit in it. Also, the table saw has a whine that is tough on the ears so it’s good to wear ear protection as well. I don’t bother with protection with my drill press or hand drills or sanders. They’re not all that noisy. The ear muff type protection is easier to use since you can take them off and put them on very easily.

A side note – protect your eyes, too. And a dust mask when sanding is recommended (for me, especially when I’m sanding walnut!). Good luck, and good to hear you’re feeling better.
