Product Description

Color: Hunter Green | Style: Earmuff

At the range or on the hunt, the Howard Leight by Honeywell Impact Sport Sound Amplification Electronic Earmuff keeps you protected from hazardous noise and connected to your environment. It carries a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 22 in both on and off mode. When the electronic ear protection is switched on, it employs built-in directional microphones that amplify ambient sounds to a safe 82 dB. This allows you to hear important commands on the range and crucial environment sounds when hunting. As an added safety feature, it also actively listens and automatically shuts off amplification when loud impulsive sounds reach 82 dB. Patented Air Flow Control technology allows for a slim earcup design that ensures your stock has clearance while in use. The padded headband features telescopic height adjustment for a comfortable, customized fit. An external audio jack lets you connect the earmuff to an MP3 player, scanner or other audio source. Automatic shut-off after 4 hours helps save battery life.

As a hunter, I want to protect my valuable hearing from the muzzle blast noise. I have tried several brands of hearing protectors, and have found these to be the best in terms of overall quality, comfort, effectiveness, and cost.

Pros:

1. The set is lighweight and they are comfortable to wear all day long without making one's ears sore.
2. The sound suppression is reliable and efficient. The blast of a rifle or shotgun is muffled to the extent that it is barely audible.
3. The volume can be turned up to actually hear better than "normal" hearing. The sounds amplified are those typically made by animals rustling in the leaves, grass, or the crackling of sticks and brush.
4. They run on two 3A batteries included with the set. The batteries will easily last 2 or more days even with continuous use.
5. The muffs have a plug-in for exterior radio, MP3 players, etc.
6. The muffs fold up into a compact size that can fit into a large coat pocket if necessary.
7. Compared to other much more expensive "name" brands, these muffs cost much less, are more reliable, and produce quality hearing and loud noise reduction.
8. Best of all, one can actually tell where a sound is coming from when wearing these muffs! Other brands claim this feature, but this brand actually makes it a reality.

Cons:

There really are no cons to this muff set. The only disadvantage (and this is common to all muffs), is that one will bump "clunk" into the stock of a firearm when shouldering aiming. If you know beforehand it is coming, the "clunk" can be minimized.

I would not hunt or shoot without these muffs. I have tried much more expensive brands (Walkers), and some "in the ear" models, but these are the best I have experienced. I consider these muffs the best on the market.

Style Name: EarmuffColor: Hunter Green Verified Purchase
When I first started shooting, I wore "el-cheapo" $10 muffs from the gun store. They worked, but if you were shooting at an indoor range or with a large caliber rifle, it became necessary to wear plugs and muffs as the cheap muffs didn't do much to silence the "boom".

My first "premium" muffs were Silencio Magnums that while very effective (as witnessed by the fact that I still have them as back ups 15 years after buying them) were bulky and uncomfortable to wear. Add to that the fact that you couldn't hold an intelligible conversation or hear range commands well with them on, and you can see why I upgraded to electronic muffs.

I was turned on to Peltor 6S muffs by a friend a few years ago, and I swore by them. I told everyone who asked about electronic muffs that Peltor was the way to go.

Then about 2 months ago, I lost my beloved Peltors. I'm not sure where I left them, but they were gone. Granted they were in need of new linings and hygiene kits, but I still mourned them...mostly because prices had gone up since I bought my 6S's!

While looking at Peltors on Amazon, I came across these Leight e-muffs. I had used Howard Leight plugs previously, and knew they were good stuff, but had never considered their muffs. I read the reviews, and they were so cheap that I thought I'd give them a try, since practically no one had a bad word to say about them.

Now I know why...these things are great! They're very good at blocking harmful noise, just like my Peltors. They allow one to hold a conversation at normal speaking levels when wearing the muffs, just like my Peltors.

The similarities end there. They fit way more comfortably than my Peltors did. They also allow for greater sensitivity in the microphones than the Peltors did.

I bought these for my wife. I was originally going to get her a pair of Peltor Tactical 6s electronic earmuffs because I had ALWAYS heard high praise for them--and I use a pair of Tac 7s myself, which I'll never give up--but then I read some of the negative reviews on the Amazon product page (I wonder how many are schills?). So based on the negative Amazon reviews and the meager NRR 19, I opted to pass on the 6s. I'm not sure how I stumbled onto these Howard Leight earmuffs, but they looked good on paper and the reviews were mostly positive, and I'm very familiar with, and confident in, the Howard Leight name, so I figured why not?

Before buying these, my wife had been previously using the Howard Leight Leightning-31 earmuffs (non-electronic, NRR 31), so I was _really_ worried about the drop in NRR with her. We went to an indoor range yesterday and shot a .40SW pistol (the .40SW has a sharp pressure spike, and hence percussion wave, and being indoors amplifies things, so this was a really good test of the earmuff's effectiveness). After we were done she said that she "likes" these muffs, and "has no problem" with them. They're a keeper! She did have one complaint. She says that they squeeze her head too tightly (not uncomfortably, just a tighter, snugger fit than she's used to) and interfere with her eye protection. We both understand that the tight fit is necessary to seal the ear, so that's not a problem in our minds, but she says she "needs to figure something out" w.r.t. the shooting glasses because that bugs her.

Of course, I tried these muffs out also. I gotta admit, for the price they are pretty darn good. The amplification is above average and you can hear normal conversation easily.
