Active noise-cancelling headphones. You can get cheap ones
from Sony and other manufacturers, for use with portable
music players -- you don't need music actually playing, for
the noise cancelling to work.

You can get "industrial" ones, like the David Clark Company
headphones that you see on most professional pilots (about
$400+ US for noise-cancelling, I think).

Or, as you say, just a good set of earplugs.

The best earplugs are custom-made. Basically, they just
pour some goop in your outer ear and it sets into a
soft silicon-like blob that exactly fits your ear canal.
They embed a pull-tab in it before it sets. Amazing noise
