I think I paid about 129? for my acs pro 17's. Well worth it to me, I use them both playing and sometimes watching gigs. I even had them in for most of the flight from London to Melbourne and they were very comfortable.

Not sure where you are, but I had the moulds made at boots Richmond.

Yup, just pop into your local Boots and head for the spectacles area, grab someone and ask.
They'll make the moulds and get ACS to make the plugs in whatever variety you want.
Pop back when they call you to collect.

Have a look at the ACS site for details of the various options.

Thanks for all the posts.  Because of availability and that I want comfort I've decided to go with the ACS17 that appears to be popular here.  Price is 139 and I can get the impressions made at our local Boots store.  The fact the Westones appear to be plastic makes me think that the softer silicone ones acts make will probably be suitable for longer term wearing.

I notice they also make in-ears, does anyone have an experience in how these stack up against others in the market?

These look interesting. I'm getting a pair in the next month or so. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/earlabs/dbud-volume-adjustable-earplugs-with-clear-safe-so

Another Sensaphonics user; with ear exam, fitting, and two sets of filters, total cost was around $220. I love them and use them all of the time.

If you find the Pro 17 cuts out too much sound, you can get the 10 dB filters and switch very easily. They are somewhat expensive and easy to lose, but very easy to switch for different uses. The soft silicone works well and has been durable in my experience.

I'm on my second pair of Elacin custom molded professional earplugs. Ears grow as we age and my first pair wasn't sealing well enough anymore. 9, 15, and 25dB filters are available and the 15dB filters are the most linear.  While I wear them when necessary while working, I can also still enjoy myself for hours and hours without taking them out while privately enjoying myself at a club.  Price was 150
