A friend of mine has a pair of these and I borrowed them once when we were out on his farm shooting clays. The most I’ve ever used for ear protection has been a cheap pair of ear plugs. These make a WORLD of difference; making shooting an entirely new experience.
I picked up some for myself and I couldn’t be happier.
These are particularly useful for an indoor range. I can’t hear anything at all when I use ear plugs. Thus, if someone is trying to talk to me, there’s no way I can hear them. With these, I can hear people talk very clearly, and it cuts out any loud noise. The microphone located on the right side is very sensitive, in a good way. It picks up the quietest sounds (footsteps, outdoor traffic, birds, and even my cat moving around upstairs) while successfully blocking any loud noise.
The earmuffs fit very comfortably around my ears. The band itself is also comfortable. It is lightly cushioned. My only compliant is that there are wires sticking out of the band and inserting into the earmuffs. These haven't gotten in the way yet, but I just hope I don't snag them on anything. I tested wearing these for a couple of hours and they passed without giving me any discomfort.
The box comes with 2 AA batteries, which fit into the bottom of the left earmuff. Supposedly these last for 30 hours! I haven’t used them to that extent yet, but if that is the case, then I think that’s pretty awesome.
I recommend these for anyone who enjoys shooting. They are durable, comfortable, and do an effective job.
