There is a very many different ways to protect your ears. These methods are basically divided into two different types:
This kind of hearing protection includes various types of ear plugs, ear plugs with frames, wadding and ear molds. All of them are inserted into the ear and thereby close off the auditory canal.

The Hear the World initiative aims to make the public aware of these risks and show how they can be avoided.
