Those guys were professionals. They should have prepared their novice shoots with proper hearing protection.

I do not recommend shooting any 50 cal with ear plugs only. It is not just the noise, the pressure
wave is a real problem.

This is a case of "More is better".

I've fired boxes and boxes of M2 ammo (from an M2, with no muzzle brake) and never thought anything of the sound with earplugs in.
