My experience of these earmuffs is mixed. They look great. They are super comfortable (though I have not worn them for extended periods of time). The sound dampening is incredible. They keep loud noises at a safe and tolerable level and simultaneously allow you to hear conversation, etc.
The problem I experienced was that they are too big to use functionally with a rifle! The head phones interfere with rifle placement when holding the rifle in a standard fashion, using a red dot scope for sights. Try as I might, including some funky positions, I could not avoid interference of the headphones with the stock of my gun. As a result, the headphones were pushed askew, my ear was uncomfortable, and the hearing protection in my right ear was negated some what.
Unfortunately, it's an instant deal breaker.
If I were going to use these for a handgun, I'd be giving them 5 stars. But since I am using them for a rifle, I cannot recommend them. If you don't anticipate on using a long gun, these are probably a safe bet. Again, they sound great and feel great. But if you plan on using a long gun, I'd recommend something with a smaller profile, or even ear-bud style protection.
Best: Leightning L3 R-03318: Howard Leight R-03318 Leightning L3 Shooter's Premium Earmuff
NRR rating 30
Attenuation at various frequencies: 34 at 125, 36 at 500, 38 at 1000, 44 at 4000, 45 at 8000
Very comfortable, lightweight, fully adjustable without fear of breaking it, padded headband.
Muffles office chatter, typing, and lighting or computer humming very well. Does something, but not enough, to block loud mechanical hums and banging.
Bottom line: This is my new favorite. It's so comfortable!
Acceptable: AO Safety 90559 AO Safety 90559 Folding Earmuff
NRR rating 21
Attenuation at various frequencies: Don't know
Comfortable, lightweight. Plastic unpadded headband adjusts in preset increments, and you have to be gentle when you put it on to avoid breaking it; the plastic broke after a couple years.
Reduces the volume of voices but doesn't block them, muffles lighting or computer humming, actually amplifies the sound of typing.
Bottom line: Despite its lower NRR rating, I used this one for years and liked it a lot.

Uncomfortably tight fit, heavier than the others, padded adjustable headband.Read more ›
Head band - The headband actually has padding and it is very comfortable. Almost all Peltors have some sort of plastic head band cover on top of the metal wire. The L3 wins hands down in comfort.
Noise dampening - Peltors are very good in the shooting range. I still use many of them. But this one is better in dampening very loud higher caliber guns like the .357 revolvers and 44 magnums. It creates a very good seal and hugs securely but comfortably. it performs better than my active shooting ear muffs.
Conversation - Considering how well it dampens very loud sounds, I can still converse with whomever I am with in the range.
Price -It is 30% cheaper in Amazon than buying it in a store.
Size - It is bulkier than my active ear muffs.
If you are in need of really protecting your hearing, look no further.
The Peltors are comfortable and soft, so easy to wear that I've forgotten I have them on. The Howard Leights are another story altogether.
They don't extend deep enough to cover my ears comfortably, the ear cushions are hard and don't mold well to the shape of your head, but the real dealbreaker was that the edge of the ear cushions inside the ear cups are molded so that they present a razor-sharp edge that bears against the back of your ears.
What a swing and a miss... I'm going to order another pair of Peltors instead. If you want a really comfortable, easy to wear pair of hearing protectors, I suggest you avoid these and look at the Peltors too.

I wear these whenever I'm making noise. Years of use and exposure to chemical attack have hardened the sponges which sit against my head, but that's to be expected. Read morePublished 2 months ago by welld

Very good range muffs. I wish the muffs pivoted so you could put the strap behind your head. Otherwise, these are exceptional.Published 5 months ago by ScubaRanger
