What is the best sound-blocking (preferably lightweight) device to go over the ear? I know absolute silence is impossible, but I want to get as close as possible.

If anyone has the same desire as me to live in silence, please tell me what you have found. Thank you.

I find this quote surmises my thoughts nicely.

A war refugee sought the Master. He said, "You are wise and serene. Teach me to escape the horrors of this world." And the Master blinded him with fire-irons.

I have tinnitus. Complete silence is my bane, because when there is no other sound I cannot tune out the constant high-pitched tone in my ears.

I travel frequently.
For earplugs putty silicone ear plugs. No specific brand.
I've tried noise cancelling earmuffs but not really my thing. Too bulky.

This; I like the sound of the breeze a lot, though - and the sweet, sweet hum of electrical devices.

I don't go anywhere without my ear plugs. I use them to sleep, to walk through the streets, and also when there's to much women around. I don't take the bus without them, and I also were them when I have a test or a chess tournament and am in need of full concentration. I use this silicone german ear plugs that are transparent and discrete, and you can adjust them depending on how much do you want to hear. The pack is blue and it simply says "earplugs", pretty much like the one on the picture. I strongly recomend them, I would be dead or crazy by now without them.
On the downside, you get used to live in peace and silence so much that you finally can barely leave your house without your ear plugs. They are also pretty awful when you're sleeping with a lover, because you won't hear if she wispers nice things to your ear or something. But that's the price you pay if you don't want to be deaf or insane by the time you hit 60 if you're living in the sprawl.
