Product Description

Product Description

The new low-profile E-Max hearing protection combines great circuitry with a low profile earcup that's ideal for shotgun shooters and action shooters. The two microphones in the E-Max amplify sounds below 85 decibels, which amplifies normal communication, range commands, and environmental sounds. Above 85 decibels, the microphones shut off for a split second to protect the shooter's hearing.

It's essential to maintain communication and detect and localize sounds in your immediate vicinity to ensure your safety on the range or in the field. Enter the Caldwell E-Max low-profile electronic muffs, which provide superior hearing protection for shotgun and action shooters. The muffs boast two microphones that amplify sounds below 85 decibels, helping you hear normal communication, range commands, and environmental sounds. Above 85 decibels, however, the microphones shut off for a split second to protect the shooter's hearing. Add in a volume control--which allows you to amplify environmental sounds from 0 to 20 decibels--and you have complete control over your audio environment while shooting. The muffs also include a fully padded adjustable headband and cushioned ear cups to provide comfort during extended use.

Customer Reviews

Work well to reduce noise.
gdnagle
These ear muffs work well by picking up and amplifying lower sounds like voice conversations and blocking louder noises.
Jonathan B
They provide good hearing protection and still allow normal conversation at the range.

My Buddy and i took this pair and 4 other ear muffs out shooting to find out which ones we liked. We have narrowed it down to this and PELTOR PEL97044, we liked them both and were torn over the two. They both have great sound deadening, but i think these have the upper hand, witht he ease of battery install, one knob to adjust valume, and they amplify the outside noise to a higher volume then the Peltor ear muffs. We both liked the Peltor that they are more compact, and i think better looking, they dont have wires hanging our, and they have twice batteries, so they "should" last a little longer, however the accessing the batteries is kind of a pain, compared to the easy out side access panel the Caldwells. I think that either ear muff will work great for us, however these have the better sound, a slightly higher NRR (23 vs 20), and the one adjustment knob is easier to deal with, plus the Caldwell has a little simple "Idiot" light to let you know you left them on.

Great headphones. Bought them for Dad for Christmas, tried them out immediately. Wearing the headphones, you can hear whispering and talking, but then clap your hands - you can't hear it at all! Only filters out super-loud frequencies, and it does a darn good job at it! Great for yard work or firing range use. I highly, highly recommend this for low-cost hearing protection. Beats earplugs any day of the week.

I have two sets of these. If you sweat at all, the sweat condenses on the circuit boards in the muffs... and the static begins. Once they dry, though, they function again.

When they are working properly, they work great. They cut off gun shots quickly and effectively.

These muffs turn off the sound briefly when shots are registered, unlike some other muffs which briefly drop the volume. This means if there are several shots in a row, the muffs are completely silent with no volume. I don't mind this, as they sound like regular non-electric muffs at this point. Some people may prefer the muffs that lower the volume when shots register, as you can still hear conversation and other sounds during gun fire.

The sound amplification on these are more than adequate. The little black windsocks on each of the two mikes are quickly lost in your range bag, as they pull off easily as your move the muffs around in the bag.

Summation: If you can afford better muffs, geat better rated muffs. If you're frugal, or use them intermittantly, these are more than adequate.

These work as advertised. Conversation and other background noise are easy to hear when turned on, then silence in loud environments. They will be great on the shooting range. So far, have just used them in the shop working on projects.

Construction quality matches the entry level price, which is fine for most activities requiring hearing protection. Perfect for the range or shop, not for combat.

I would give 5 stars, but wanted a set that uses AA batteries. These need AAA, so product description is a little off.

really impressed with how these function. they actually amplify sound until you get a loud sound that they instantly cut out. I cannot for the life of me imagine why people are paying so much money for competing products that sell based on name or color...?

EDIT 11-14-2014: STILL work great. Several friends use these now. These are a great value.

EDIT 07-08-2013: We've been using our two pair of these about 15 times over the past 6 months. Have not needed to change batteries yet. They have worked well. There have been a couple times when I have been right next to a discharging pistol that it did not block the report quite as well as I would have liked, but I would not switch to a larger set that squeezes your head tighter. To the plus, these are as comfortable as can be expected. I have no problem wearing them continously for an hour or so, but the wife does not like wearing them more than 30 minutes without a break. The compact design is a plus in that they fit easily in our range bag. We have recommended these to friends three times now.

ORIGINAL REVIEW:

Product works exactly as it is suppose to. Excellent value. Would highly recommend to a friend.

RANGE USE
A few have mentioned that they did not like how these worked at a shooting range. Let's review how these are advertised to work; When a loud noise happens, the microphones turn off for half a second. So, at a busy range where shots will happen frequenly (sometimes more than once a second) the microphones will be off alot - as they are supposed to be to protect your hearing. Others have said that they did not protect their hearing enough at a range. Let's reveiw again; They are advertised with a NRR of 23 which is what you get. This means that noises will be reduced by 23 decibels. So not very loud noises may be reduced to near nothing, while extemely lound noises will be reduced somewhat.

I purchased 2 sets of the Caldwell Low Profile E-Max electronic earmuffs. They worked GREAT when I first purchased them. Whenever a gunshot would go off, the earmuffs effectively shut off the sound before it got to my ears. It was very obvious when they were working. All noise would cancel, including someone's voice if they were talking during the shot. I was really impressed.

But over time, I began to notice the noise cancellation was beginning to lag the shot. I would hear the first part of the shot loudly, but then the rest of the shot would be cancelled. It began to lag to the point it would shut the sound out AFTER the shot. Since the muffs also amplify the sound until the shot (for voices), with the lag it was actually magnifying the sound of the shot!

It finally got to the point where the muffs didn't cancel noise at all. They were just amplifying everything. So I began to wear them as regular muffs with the electronics turned off. The time frame from working to not working was about 6 months.

I kept replacing the batteries thinking it was low batteries, but that wasn't the case. Even with fresh batteries they weren't working properly.

I then tried some Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Earmuffs. Those NEVER worked out of the box. All they do is amplify everything. There's no noise cancellation whatsoever.

So I'm back to square one. I guess I'll try some more expensive electronic earmuffs next. Or maybe I should just throw in the towel and go back to big bulky non-electronic muffs that work. But I just can't seem to get a good cheek weld with the big bulky ones.
