This is a mandatory item at Ranger School and Sapper Leader Course, and you are required to bring one pair. You should always wear your EarPro (hearing protection for you civilian folks) when you're firing weapons. I would never recommend that you do not wear them. I will say however that I didn't wear them unless I was on WPNs squad (240s are much louder than M4s). Firing Blanks out of M4s never bothered my ears but I'm sure it wasn't good for them.
Anyways, these are required and you will need them for every mission. Especially for the missions that you jump into or get inserted by helicopter.
