"It's lucky it's dark. I haven't blushed so much since Madam Pomfrey told me she liked my new earmuffs."
Albus Dumbledore to Minerva McGonagall[src]

Earmuffs are headgear designed to protect the ears and shut out sound. They are essential equipment in handling mandrakes as their screams are fatal to humans. Second year students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry use earmuffs when learning to re-pot young mandrakes, as although the cries are not yet lethal, they can still render a person unconscious. In the 1992–1993 school year, the second years fought to not get stuck with the pink and fluffy earmuffs, in a scenario in which, for once, Neville Longbottom's luck was not all bad, and the Professor herself took the undesired items.

In 1981, while delivering Harry Potter to the Dursleys, Dumbledore mentioned to Minerva McGonagall that he owned a pair of earmuffs.

During the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry Potter passed Professor Sprout and a group of students all wearing earmuffs as they prepared to launch mandrakes at Death Eaters.

  • In LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4, entering an earmuff wardrobe will give you earmuffs so you can smash crystals and glass cases with the mandrakes' voices.
