I own 6 different models of ear protection (1 AO Safety and 5 Peltor). This pair is the pair I wear most frequently because:
1) They are not to big and bulky like the higher NRR rated models I have. The bigger ones are quieter, but they are noticably bigger and heavier. I prefer this smaller size for most things and only wear the bigger ones for really noisy infrequent tasks.
2) They provide good sound deadening. They work fine for typical jobs like skillsaws, tractor work, etc.
3) They are comfortable. The cushion is comfortable against my head.
4) They operate nicely. Unlike the even smaller red AO Safety 19 or 20 db model I have, these pair are easy to get on my head without getting all twisted up. I hate the AO Safety pair because I always end up fighting to get the two ear cups apart and facing the right direction. These Peltor H9As can usually be put on my head with one hand without too much fuss.

My son (3 years) and I went to the Monster Jam this weekend. You know, those obnoxiously loud Monster Trucks that jump over cars. We each wore a pair of the Optime 98 earmuffs at this eventö here is the pros and cons:

Pro:
- Fits perfectly on my son's head, and is comfortable enough for him not to try getting rid of them every thirty seconds (we removed the earmuffs during breaks in the program, though)
- Fits perfectly on my (adult sized) head; very comfortable to wear, only my ears got a bit sweaty after a while
- Dampens the noise level to a very comfortable level
- Let's human (Daddy's ...) voice through from 1-2 ft distance (... son, don't climb there ...)
- Sturdy construction; my son's fell on the concrete floor several times - not a scratch
- Easy adjustment to ones head diameter
- Lightweight

Cons:
None that I could think of ... well, the sticker on the side says "3M" instead of "Peltor" ... like I would care ...

So, for me and my 3 year old son, these earmuffs worked perfectly for an indoor event with extremely loud music, engine noise and crowd.

I bought these earmuffs instead of the H10A's because of the reviews - they classified this pair as more comfortable and still good at noise canceling.

I got them so that I could better focus on work at home - there can be many distracting noises that obstruct serious thought. While they do not cancel everything out - they drastically reduce noise. If someone directly in front of me starts talking to me, I will hear what they are saying, albeit at a reduced noise level. However, when I went into a connected room, and asked my mom and my sister to have a conversation in the room I was initially in, I couldn't hear what they were saying.

The really bring me a sense of inner peace and centeredness - I can focus on my work without worrying about becoming distracted with random noises in the house. It allows you to get into your own world. I would advise people, however, to notify their house mates when they are going to use them to tune out - it would be horrible if something happened at the other end of the house and one remained unaware because one could not hear the noise.

Overall - very good product. Comfortable, and would recommend. Won't give them 5 stars because they are my first pair of earmuffs - and would have like a pair that zapped out ambient noise even more!!

The Peltor earmuffs are among the most comfortable. The H9A is not as bulky as some others and is adequate for most noise. I keep 4 or 5 in the shop, one hanging on each noisy power tool. The best ear protection is the one you actually use, and these are simple to slip on and off as the job requires.

I've owned these earmuffs for several weeks now, and I can say without reservation that they're the best I've used. The only other muffs I own are very cheap imported ones, but I've tried several others including the heavier-duty Peltor model. My primary use is with power tools in my wood shop. I think these H9A earmuffs strike a great balance of great sound deadening on one hand, and relatively light weight and low profile on the other. They do an excellent job of blocking annoying/painful noise levels, while still allowing me to hear a LITTLE bit of ambient noise (i.e. I can still tell if a power tool motor is doing something strange). I'd say they block noise at least as well as the better plugs I've used.
These muffs seal around my ears much better than my cheapo muffs, almost to the point of popping my ears if I yank them straight out too suddenly. However, this is due to the sealing action of soft, flexible pad, and not that the head band squeezes too tightly. The plastic on the outside of the ear cup is thick and durable (I sort of knocked these earmuffs off a high shelf onto a concrete floor, and they weren't cracked or damaged in any way), but they're not as heavy or obtrusive as the bigger Peltor muffs (which stick out farther from your head).
The padded top band is also a nice improvement over the hard plastic of the cheap "industrial" muffs I own.
I typically wear my earmuffs over safety glasses and a dust mask, neither of which affects the fit of these muffs. I would expect the arms of the glasses to interfere with the fit, but they still seal very well. I can force the muffs to lift up a bit if I turn my head and flex my neck just so, and at that point I notice a slight increase in transmitted noise. However, the presence of safety glasses does not cause this - the muffs remain comfortably sealed around my ears.
