I've spent a lot of time at the range shooting 9mm, .40 cal, 5.56 and 12ga.
Matt D. Wolfe
These hearing protectors are very comfortable and work well for impact noise, or the constant noise from my machines.
Eric Barnhizer
You can easily hear conversations around you and yet still be protected when the gun blast is made.

I have been using these for seven years, or more. They have been 100% reliable and have been a great advantage in pistol shooting. The sound is balanced correctly, so you still have a proper sense of a sound's direction. The passive noise cancellation is adequate, as good as most headsets and better than many, but not the very best.

I wear these in the woods and at the range. In the woods they give a huge improvement on my already above average (for my 45 years) hearing, with the volume turned up I can hear birds that I didn't even realize were there before, as well as the sounds of distant neighbors going about their motorized business. I have been able to track a shot deer by the sounds of breaking twigs as it ran 25 yards before falling and rolling down a hill. Sounds that would have been lost in the aftermath of my 303 now perfectly audible.

The electronic hearing protection works very well, I am never aware of the onset of a bang, just a sudden silence which tapers off a moment later, as if someone had suddenly stuffed cotton wool into your ears.

There are only two down sides, after each bang there is a noticeable delay. On the range these delays can overlap the next shot, so in the end you get big gaps when your hearing is only as good as everyone else's. The cans are a bit bulky, so with a rifle like an AR15 where you need to get your head down to the sights they can interfere. Peltor have solved this with the Comtac models which have a cutout to give the stock clearance, but these don't have that.

Peltor have been excellent for me and I'd not hesitate to buy from them again, which is actually why I am here looking to upgrade to the Comtac so that I can use my radio gear at the same time as I am shooting.

These things are fantastic. I use them at the shooting range, and I'm no longer bothered by my own gun or the yahoo standing next to me with a 50 caliber canon.

They are very comfortable, cut noise to almost nothing, yet allow you hear commands at the range so you don't fire when someone runs out to change a target. Turn down the volume, or turn them off, and they will block out everything from 4th of July fireworks to the kids killing each other in the living room.

One nice feature is that they only use one battery that's easy to replace. It will last a lot longer if you remember to turn them off when you are not using them.

Finally, someone mentioned the lag time after they cut out. Yes, there is a slight lag after someone takes a shot and they cutout, but it's really not bad, and you get used to it quickly. I only notice it if a truck is idling at the range. You can hear the truck, someone takes a shot, then a second passes before you can hear the truck again.

I wear two hearing aids. When I go to the range there is always someone using a "hand cannon" nearby that, even with standard ear protection, makes my ears ring .... So I did the usual net "review" and selected these ear protectors to try. They seriously dampen the blasts from the hand cannons that the young folks are into these days, sure is nice to walk out of the range and still be able to hear ......

I purchased two of these; one for my girlfriend and one for myself. I do a lot of outdoor/indoor shooting and these work great (Springfield XDM 40, Stag AR-15 5.56, Ruger M77 MKII, etc); however, I always use these in combination with earplugs (which I recommend). With the earplugs in, I just turn up the volume so that I can hear others when they speak. It amplifies sounds very nicely and cuts out sound when the guns go off. The neat feature about these ear protectors is that you can tell which direction the sound is coming from. In regards to the noise reduction functionality...I'm not sure about the reviewers that say that they don't hear anything when a gun goes off. These are rated less than 30 dbs in noise reduction. I can hear my Ruger 10/22 going off when I shoot CCI Stinger rounds and that is with the sound amplification OFF! Those who speak to the contrary are over-hyping the product or have lost their hearing already. I use these with ear plugs and I can still hear when guns go off around me so those of you who are expecting dead silence from these...please don't be fooled. These are good for the price that you pay. I would recommend these if your budget allows.

[UPDATE Feb 8th, 2011]
After owning this product for quite some time, I would continue to recommend this product to my friends. The product has held up well and has withstood my abuse - which is impressive. After putting this product through its paces, I came to realize that this is not the best hearing protector to wear if you're using long guns. The reason being is that the ear protector is just too big (near the battery compartment) and it keeps you from getting a proper cheek weld.

I have used my Tactical 7 classic for trap shooting with good sucess. They dampen sound well and I can hear commands even with poor hearing. They do not interfere with mounting the gun. I would have rated them 5 stars if they would have come with a carrying case. They do not fold up into a small unit either. A very good thing about them is the battery installs from the outside and does not require the insides to be taken out. They are well made. I would buy them again.
