If you are just interested in blocking out noise, then you are probably referring to earmuffs. You can find them at a sporting-goods/hunting store, as they are used for hearing protection when shooting guns.

For example, there are numerous types that can be found on Cabela's website.

You are smart for wanting to protect your hearing. I don't know how loud car races actually get. I'm sure it depends on where you are at and how close you are to the cars. Although it might not look cool wearing hearing protection, it is worth it. Once you lose your hearing, you can never get it back.

I doubt noise cancelling headphones do any good for hearing protection at a car race. Noise cancelling technology is more effective at low frequencies. (http://www.cbc.ca/news/background/tech/how-it-works/noise-cancelling-headphones.html ) They work great eliminating noise on an airplane, which is relatively constant, but "They won't cancel the sound of music, telephones or the human voice," says Vien Bantog of Panasonic Canada.

Racing Headphones

Do you live downstairs from them? Do you live next door. We had the same problem with a couple upstairs years ago. What my wife at the time did was get a "broom" and start knocking plaster everywhere. They soon stopped. Now if this is coming from next door, then that is what I would say is pretty wild. There is nothing you can do to stop her screaming, just try to let the two of you, if you are married, settle back, and enjoy. But when you see the lady outside I would speak with her and see if maybe they did have a party last night. If she says no, just tell her that you heard some screaming coming from your way; and you were curious as to what was going on?

Why you want to block the noise??that is what Nascar is all about the roar of engines 800 plus horses, the tires squealing on and off pit road….sorry but i have attended plenty of races and NEVER had any use for headsets to block noise..that is why i attend..to get the RUSH and FEEL of being a Nascar Fan

Hey Superdave..you not betting again..on what and why???

Go by a local gun shop. They should have ear protection. Pawn shops usually have ear protection they sell with their guns. Try an Army Navy store also. If it was me I would go by Walmart and get a headset scanner. They are located by the car stereos [at least they are in my town].

get a set of ear plugs from a landscaper or walmart in the lawn mower section for a buck if u need for your scanner you can use a regular set of stereo head phones go to radio shack and purchase a adapter plug this is what i did and works great instead of paying all that money for there set

you can get the headphone scanners for a race pretty much anywhere, Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, ebay, nascar.com around $100 for a set

They should have those that your looking for at Wal-Mart, Lowes & home depot too.

Here is a link to what Nascar uses:
