In my neighborhood they have been setting off fireworks [and firebombs] every day and night.

During the day I can use ear muffs with the sound generators.

When I take out the SG's in the evening, I was thinking of using musician's earplugs [with a sound machine] for a few hours.

I was wondering if this could cause a setback by using these earplugs even though they let in sound. 

Thanks.

Shari,

If you are indoors I would discourage you from wearing earmuffs.  Hypervigilance is something people suffering from hyperacusis must be careful of.  Overprotecting your hearing will only make your ears more sensitive.  Save the muffs for when you are outdoors.

Thank you for your answer.

If I put on the earmuffs, I am also wearing Sound Generators so there is always sound in my ears.

What I really need to know is about the musician's earplugs [with a sound machine] for a few hours.

These earplugs let in sound but would muffle the firebombing happening outside.

Thanks.
