Ear defenders

dependent on the ear plugs you can wear ear plus and ear defends at the same time ( and people who are sensitive sound will still be able to hear you).

the amount of sound reduction is measured in decibels( written - db the - is because they are cutting/shielding you from that many decibels often written db)

3m are a trusted manufacturer of ear defends used in industries like construction you can get up to about -35db screwfix and tool station are good sources

Types of ear plugs

Ear plugs come in many different kinds, theres the foam disposable ones , the moulded ones ( these can either be moulded by hand of made specifically for your ears) , there are different shapes and sizes, a music shop may be the best place to look at ear plugs , I would recommend trying a few my personal preference is the vic frith blue ear plugs.

Desk partitions

If you are someone who can become easily distracted by whats going on around you , a desk partition can be very helpful, sometimes these are just 3 sides of cardboard that can be put on someones desk, or it may be something more elaborate . there are multi use ones which can be used to divide a desk ( as you would playing battleships)/.
