You can not use them. You can't even bring your own pen, they're so anal about stuff that goes in and out of the test site.

The "sound isolation" headphones they offer didn't work at my center. It actually amplified the sound by creating an annoying echo. They were also very uncomfortable and I ended up taking them off immediately. Call your test center to see if they allow your own earplugs. My test center wouldn't allow them and it's technically AAMC policy to not allow you to use your own ear plugs.
