Any idea how much dB these reduce?

These appear to be the blue ones, so:
Attenuation: 21 dB
Ryan from Eargasm here! The Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is 12 decibels, but depending on the frequency of the sound and if the earplug is properly inserted in the ear, users can reduce noise by up to 21 decibels. Additionally, the SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio which is used in the rest of the world besides the US) on our earplugs is 21 decibels. The NRR rating is federally mandated by the EPA and a label disclosing it must be placed on all earplugs, and we want to comply with this law, although we feel it vastly underestimates the true effectiveness of our earplugs and most audiologists find it to be an antiquated system in need of modification. Most high fidelity earplug brands (including our competitors on Amazon such as Etymotic Research) choose to advertise with the higher decibel number since it is a more accurate reflection of the results consumers can expect to have with our product. We disclose the NRR in our product description and now hopefully by posting this answer people will be more aware of the NRR rating. I sincerely apologize if you believe we falsely advertised our product to you, but I hope you can see our rationale for advertising our product as providing up to 21 decibels of noise reduction.
