Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Aspect

Aspect:
"Love the noise canceling aspect but they don't fit well on my ears and takes quite a bit of adjusting so they actually seal around my ears and don't just sit on my head the vicinity of my ears."
_
"if i had to provide a negative aspect, it would be the difficulty in opening the earmuffs from the closed position."
_
"There are some really positive things to say about these earmuffs, unfortunately, they fail in one critical aspect: sound reduction."
_
"The electronic aspect of these works quite well."
_
"You lose the directional aspect of your hearing, but the tiniest sounds are easy to hear!"
_
"Microphone speaker aspect works very nicely."
_
"Oh, and lastly, as for its initial purpose of protecting your hearing, that aspect works very well."
_
"Music connectivity, this is a kind of fun aspect of these, but it isn't exactly high fidelity and you really have to adjust your music player and the headset volumes independently in order for it to be even manageable."

Battery

Battery:
"All that's missing is a battery charge indicator."
_
"While they don't have a great NR, they have fit well, the batteries last, and the amplification works well."
_
"I just didn't want to risk the batteries failing and damaging these awesome earmuffs."
_
"Electronics function very effectively, on off knob is low profile so can't be turned on accidentally when stuffing into range bag (a friend has muffs that do this, with not auto-shut off, so his batteries are dead about 50% of the time-then he bought a set of Impact Sports), auto-shut off function is a very nice feature, they are low profile so they don't get in the way of your cheek weld on the stock and all of this for only $40!"
_
"Only complaint is that the batteries are drained quite quickly."
_
"Wish it had an automatic turn-off feature--batteries were dead day after my wife forgot to turn it off!"
_
"Would be nice to have an led to show battery status."
_
"It was also nice that they came with batteries and an audio cable to connect to an MP3 player (which seems antiquated these days... when will they start using Bluetooth?"
_
"Mine came with very good brand name NEW batteries still sealed in pkg."
_
"Great product, but the arrived without the battery compartment cover."
_
"Battery life is quite good, as I have had mine for several years and have had to change the batteries only two or three times."

Comfortable

Comfortable:
"I was disappointed since they were very comfortable with a nice fit but didn't block enough noise to hear my iPhone music and podcasts."
_
"More comfortable than other comparable electronic earmuffs, but my only complaint is that they sometimes don't quiet gunshots enough when indoors."
_
"For the most part, these are comfortable, but not great."
_
"Comfortable and they fold up small when not in use for easy storage in shooting bag."
_
"I was able to get a good seal but don't feel comfortable moving excessively."
_
"The only downside is they are not as comfortable with wearing sunglasses, if your picky about that I'd get the 3M Peltor Tac100 - I just purchased these on a black friday deal so I'm looking forward to comparing the 2 ear muffs."
_
"Great outdoors, extremely comfortable but didn't find the noise reduction that great indoors.."
_
"I wear them at work and enjoy the comfort from loud noises and the comfort of the muffs securing my ears by wrapping around them."
_
"Comfortable stock weld is easy."
_
"very comfortable, good mic's."

Connector

Connector:
"Another problem I've had with them is while using the headphone jack to listen to music from my iPhone."
_
"I did have a problem when using the input jack with a pc."
_
"They also only need two AAA batts where the Peltor needs 4.Also comes with a headphone jack for coms (or your iphone)only downside by comparison is that the other set are better while wearing a hat."
_
"While at the range, I enjoy listening to music but the quality of the sound through the headphone jack was not good."
_
"My one and only complaint is the integrated rc jack."
_
"Small points and admittedly just my opinion, other than the weak battery connector design."
_
"Comfortable, light and the audio jack works."
_
"Work great the ear phone jack is a major plus and helps with not just shooting"
_
"The jack for MP3 players or radios is convenient as well."
_
"Love having the jack to input some tunes while mowing the acreage."
_
"Works well with audio jack, can listen to my tunes, have a conversation, and shoot all at the same time."

Control

Control:
"On Off is on the volume control - but is not easy to accidentally turn on if thrown in your range bag."
_
"I suggest still using foam ear plugs when shooting rifles or when near other centerfire rifles as the dB rating isn't that highGood- Great battery life, easy controls, great sound reduction for pistols and shotguns."
_
"The Peltors have individual volume controls which can be a plus but I found to be annoying."
_
"The sound is not very good at all and the in line mp3 player controls do not work."
_
"I have had no problem with these and the have excellent volume control e. g. you can turn the volume up to full (which is very loud) and not get the feedback squeel."
_
"Very annoying.2) MP3 - no volume control."
_
"I found myself 'searching' for the volume control knob instead of my fingers easily finding it's location."
_
"Low height allows you to check weld easier, has a single control (unlike many others) for volume, and uses one set of batteries instead of a set on each side."
_
"Second, the volume control is great."
_
"Bottom line....they stop muzzle blast, allow ambient and speech through with adjustable volume control and are incredibly comfortable."
_
"The amp volume control is nice to use when communicating."

Cover

Cover:
"Other than missing one of the small foam covers, works well."
_
"I see some complain about the ear cover interfering with their cheek weld of their weapon."
_
"If there is anything that needs to change, it's the crappy battery cover."
_
"If I were to put them on over the top as one would normally do, they would not adequately cover my ears."
_
"On the downside, the cover for the battery compartment-- while it does a nice ergonomic job of somewhat blending in to the side of the earmuff to keep a slim profile-- doesn't inspire a lot of confidence."
_
"Battery cover fell off and broke the first time I used this."
_
"Great covers."
_
"Other than missing one of the small foam covers, works well."
_
"These have fairly skinny ear covers, but it might be a good idea to test fit them and shoulder a rifle to see how they do for you."
_
"pros: fold up for compact storage easily replaceable, commonly found batteries convenient rotary on-off volume control comfortable and adjustablecons: battery cover can be (somewhat) easily dislodged battery cover can be difficult to re install align external cables can become snagged"

Cushion

Cushion:
"The plastic ear cushions aren't very soft, which is a big problem when trying to get a good seal."
_
"I did notice that these worked well in getting a good cheek weld on the rifle, but the cushions doesn't seem to be comfortable after the 2nd hour."
_
"Part of the problem as I see it is the poor seal between the earpiece cushion and the head ear."
_
"The cushion material was noticeably cheap and crappy."
_
"The earcup cushion molding had sharp edges inside, which were very uncomfortable and cut into my ears."
_
"Pros: slim design, stylish, comfortable to wear, auto off, audio jack, fold up feature, feels about 80% durableCons: doesn't seem to fit smaller heads(at the smallest adjustment, the muffs go down to my jawline and does not seal well), cushions are so slim that you lose a seal when you wear certain eye wear, doesn't block out as much sound as I would like(I use them for shooting and gunshots at the indoor range are still pretty loud...I have to use plugs as well), after prolonged use the pads start to sweatThese muffs would work well if you're shooting outdoors, have a larger or longer sized head, shooting rifles, and or on a budget."
_
"Good quality ear cushions too."
_
"I do agree that the ear cups could use a bit for depth cushion, but other than that all is well."
_
"The cushions against your ears head are very comfortable based on my limited time testing thus far (even with glasses)."
_
"They also did not fit my or my husband's ears very well, and did not have as much cushion as the other earmuffs we tried."
_
"The cushions on the side of the head are comfortable and seal up ok. As far as the size of the cup goes (how big the hole that goes over the ear) I feel like it is a bit small."

Earphone

Earphone:
"I did have one of five sets come with the headband not effectively connected to the earphone due to failed glue on the leatherish part, but Amazon's amazing customer service had a replacement to me in two days."
_
"I was very much dissapointed that the earphones did not lower the sound of large calibre rifles more!"
_
"For context, the reviewer was displeased with these earphones due to their opinion that the sound attenuation offered by these earmuffs (22dB) is inadequate."
_
"Additional benefits: when driving I had my son sat behind, with conventional earphones I used to hear that annoying leakage of sound..."
_
"Gives good protection, also can serve as earphone as well."
_
"I really liked these earphone but the only issue I have with them is they do not fix snug enough on my ears."
_
"These earphones provide directionally accurate sound response and muffle the ear busting sound of a 30-06 rifle that I always use to rock hogs into a dirt nap."
_
"But it is a great pity that the earphones cannot be used around certain electronic devices."
_
"When your looking for low profile, well constructed, noise reduction earphones good for shooting then these are perfect."

Fit:
"Love the noise canceling aspect but they don't fit well on my ears and takes quite a bit of adjusting so they actually seal around my ears and don't just sit on my head the vicinity of my ears."
_
"I am so disappointed because I don't get a good fit or seal with them, so they provide practically no hearing protection."
_
"Many times I had my friends adjust them and still not a perfect fit."
_

Indicator

Indicator:
"All that's missing is a battery charge indicator."
_
"CON:Other reviews are correct about the downside to this product not having a red-light indicator to let you know that it is on off."
_
"The only complaint I have is they should add an LED indicator to show if the earmuffs are turned on or off."
_
"I like the idea that they turn themselves off after 4 hours, having an indicator light showing when they are on would be nice."
_
"It would be nice to have an indicator for on off."
_
"It does not have a battery light indicator so it's easy to leave the unit on and drain the battery."
_
"A good indicator of how good they are is to count how many you see next time your at the range."
_
"On-off , volume switch should have an indicator , easily solved with a couple dobs of paint ."

Indoor

Indoor:
"Shooting ranges: It was expected to not work well indoors as it only has a 22dB NR rating, but it also failed to provide adequate protection at busy outdoor ranges where multiple shooters were present."
_
"Not as reliable in cutting off loud gunshots in indoor range, works better outdoos"
_
"Does not work well indoors."
_
"NRR 22 is not that great.. Used them at my indoor shooting range and I'm glade I brought foam ear plugs."
_
"I would not recommend using at indoor ranges unless you also where ear plugs ."
_
"(If you have to light on off indoors without hearing protection, you will have hearing damage... Buy it!"
_
"Great outdoors, extremely comfortable but didn't find the noise reduction that great indoors.."
_
"Excellent product for the price, especially for indoor shooting ranges or any activity where you want to protect your hearing but still hear others talking."
_
"These are great but I frequently shoot indoors near rifles and shotguns with no ROF limit and I should have gotten the large size with more dB protection."
_
"For an indoor range I find that it's best to use these with additional ear protection underneath; I wear my Surefire EP4s under these."
_
"like most said, it's probably good for outdoor range, but not sufficient for indoor, especially there are shooters with big bore guns."

Knob

Knob:
"The knob is located in a position that while being worn is inconvenient and 'out of place'."
_
"Volume knob is out of the way and can't easily be bumped up or down."
_
"I found myself 'searching' for the volume control knob instead of my fingers easily finding it's location."
_
"Low profile and knobs are easy to use even with gloves on."
_
"Electronics function very effectively, on off knob is low profile so can't be turned on accidentally when stuffing into range bag (a friend has muffs that do this, with not auto-shut off, so his batteries are dead about 50% of the time-then he bought a set of Impact Sports), auto-shut off function is a very nice feature, they are low profile so they don't get in the way of your cheek weld on the stock and all of this for only $40!"

Loud

Loud:
"My only complaint is that if I am driving loud tractors or machinery and trying to use them to listen to podcasts or radio shows on my iphone, the volume is so quiet that it is too difficult to hear exactly what the podcast announcer is saying."
_
"The ability to turn the microphone on to subdue the loud harmful noises but listen to the surrounding voices is amazing."
_
"It amplifies sounds from the background yet cancelling the loud noise that could damage your ears, so it does the job"
_
"Can hear better with them on than without but they do a great job on loud noises."
_
"Not as reliable in cutting off loud gunshots in indoor range, works better outdoos"
_
"This product is just amazing whether you work with guns like me or work anywhere where the noise in at the decibel level that would damage it used to the fact that you can have the microphone on and if something loud happens it shuts everything down protecting unbelievable product so cheap so useful must have item only downside is if you work in a job like me it takes time to get them set up when you unfold them which can be a serious issue but that is the only negative thing I have to say buy them it's worth it"
_
"We found that this product performs as advertised; however, I give this an It's okay rating because of the following reason: it doesn't seem to block very loud noises very well."
_
"I wear them at work and enjoy the comfort from loud noises and the comfort of the muffs securing my ears by wrapping around them."
_
"Shot a few rounds out of my .308 and thought they were kind of loud through the muffs, just odd how clear the background noise was while even while shooting."
_
"When loud noises are encountered (I. e. gunshots) they do very well at reduction."
_

Material

Material:
"They are terrible at everything besides build quality and material."
_
"The cushion material was noticeably cheap and crappy."

"All material has held up nicely"
_
"It is a great product, High quality materials and for an amazing price."
_
"All of the materials are high quality and very durable."

Noise

Noise:
"Love the noise canceling aspect but they don't fit well on my ears and takes quite a bit of adjusting so they actually seal around my ears and don't just sit on my head the vicinity of my ears."
_
"it does allow you to hear your surroundings very clearly but seems like the noise cancelation doesn't work as well as a normal set of ear protection."
_
"Note that most shotgun leagues prefer to use foam earplugs, not headsets, because you can bump a headset while mounting the gun and leave your ears open to unsupressed shotgun noise, which is obviously not good for your hearing."
_
"I like the low profile construction but I am disappointed with its noise deadening capability."
_
"The noise reduction is not as good as the Impact Pro, but the smaller profile makes up for it."
_
"The amplification is good, but not great noise cancellation."
_
"They work great for shooting for both noise reduction and being a slim profile and my wife who works in an industrial environment uses them daily in combination with the audio jack to listen to Audio books off her phone while she works and is very please as well."
_
"That being said, the noise reduction was found to be great for solo shooting, but when shooting in small groups I noticed my ears began to ring a bit and found that more hearing protection was needed."
_
"We found that this product performs as advertised; however, I give this an It's okay rating because of the following reason: it doesn't seem to block very loud noises very well."
_
"Great outdoors, extremely comfortable but didn't find the noise reduction that great indoors.."

Outdoor:
"Shooting ranges: It was expected to not work well indoors as it only has a 22dB NR rating, but it also failed to provide adequate protection at busy outdoor ranges where multiple shooters were present."

"It is a very good product for outdoor ranges but I would not rate it very good for indoor ranges."
_
"Would not recommend, unless 22lr maybe 38spl shooting outdoors or mowing that's it IMO."
_
"These are the great for outdoors, though I wouldn't recommend for indoor use."
_
"These may be OK for an outdoor range but they are definitely not good for an indoor range."
_
"As a person who works 40hrs at a indoor gun range I can tell you this are not good for use indoors but if you go to outdoor ranges then they are fine which is why I gave it 3 stars."
_
"Outdoors: This product was found to be excellent when used for outdoor target shooting and hunting situations."
_
"Great outdoors, extremely comfortable but didn't find the noise reduction that great indoors.."

Plastic

Plastic:
"I have at least one pair of these things with that plastic piece broken on a regular basis."
_
"Battery compartment broke after only a couple of months, then yesterday the entire earmuff holder (plastic) broke."
_
"Instruction document inside the plastic cover can be missed if you don't look for them."
_
"I guess it is a thin metal band and broke like plastic?"
_
"I think all headphones will be a problem with plastic frame glasses."
_
"The ear cups are some weird rubber plastic stuff that get sweaty, and the first time I put them away after using them, the ear pieces were all melted together."
_
"These are made of durable plastic, only time will tell how well they hold up to abuse at the range, and in the back of the truck."
_
"The plastic on this product is very good quality, but I wish they had a better way of housing the batteries in my opinion."
_
"While there's a mix of metal and plastic, it's proven quite durable."
_
"There are relief markings in the wells, but maybe because of the cammo color of the plastic, I had a hard time deciphering them with my middle aged eyes."
_
"The padded earmuff part is pretty much just plastic and becomes hot and sweaty in short order."

Power

Power:
"He likes them for working on sheet metal but not great on half engine power of an airplane."
_
"The reviews from the shooting range folks seem to like them, but I can't recommend them for someone who is using power tools over an extended period."
_
"The report from a high power rifle was very uncomfortable."
_
"Not the greatest performer when shooting at the range with other high power rifles going off on the left and right of you, but protects well with hand guns in the same situation."
_
"Not too bad but you definitly don't want to stand or walk under power lines for too long or it can get annoying."
_
"Really liked them until recently they don't power on anymore."
_
"I have used them in construction sites with banging air hammers, handsaws, saws-all, hammer drill guns and every imaginable power tool that can give you tinnitus but still be able to hear a human voice for safety."
_
"Have great response time and the power off feature if left on is great."
_
"Nice and sleek compact bu probably not for the high power rifle range."
_
"I've had them for a year and use them for shooting as well for at work where I work w power tools, air compressors, and generators and they muffle and equalize the noise level quite well."

Price

Price:
"Not the most comfortable but not bad for the price."
_
"Yes, their stereo sound reproduction is a very nice feature at this price point - but if they don't even adequately perform their most basic function - hearing protection - then its a moot point."
_
"No doubt the best electronic is its price class."
_
"Incidentally, the ear cups are thin, cheap and don't fit well at all."

Range:
"Not so good for the gun range."
_
"Shooting ranges: It was expected to not work well indoors as it only has a 22dB NR rating, but it also failed to provide adequate protection at busy outdoor ranges where multiple shooters were present."
_
"On Off is on the volume control - but is not easy to accidentally turn on if thrown in your range bag."
_
"I would not recommend them for serious range shooters or wherever high powered firearms are being used."
_
"Overall, good for hunting, maybe, but not the best choice for range or practice, get a non electronic level 30 muff instead."
_
"Could be that the range didn't have very good sound absorption, or it could be that these were not what I expected."
_
"I recommend that users who are serious about protecting their hearing use a different earmuff for shooting ranges, but if used at a range then would recommend that ear plugs be used underneath these earmuffs, especially if used around multiple shooters."
_
"My overall assessment is that this is an excellent choice for hunting, but if you are intending to use this at a range then this may not be a suitable choice."
_
"The headphones are light weight, fold nicely and become compact enough for easy transport in my range bag."
_

Reliable

Reliable:

Sensitivity

Sensitivity:
"Electronics work well; I was especially impressed with the sensitivity of the mics."
_
"I love that I can control sensitivity on them and that range commands are amplified."
_
"Excellent sensitivity control."
_
"Pros: great microphone sensitivity, can hear a lot of the wildlife I can't hear with out them."
_
"The best ones I could find besides electronic types were the SureFire Sonic Defenders (which I've used for years), however I have pretty touchy sound sensitivity and I had to keep the filter caps closed, which blocked out any hope for normal audible dialogue."

Shape

Shape:
"The rectangular shape is ridiculous; the lower back corner is always unsealed."
_
"At first I thought it might be fit, but with 3 separate head shapes these failed to knock out the impulses of gunshots."
_
"In truth, that is more a function of body shape than a fault of the muff."
_
"These have a very cool flat shape to them too, One of the best purchases I made in a while."
_
"I have the ESS Z Shape safety glasses, and these earmuffs work perfect!"
_
"The only down side, and this could be just the shape of my head is they are harder to get a good fit than the R-01902's."
_
"They might be fine for a race, or even outdoor range, or maybe it's just the shape of our heads that doesn't allow it to seal as well."
_
"I have had one pair over 4 years with no special care taken of them and they are still in as good a shape as the pair bought last month."

Sharp

Sharp:
"The earcup cushion molding had sharp edges inside, which were very uncomfortable and cut into my ears."
_
"These are meant for shooting sports, but could easily apply to most any situation offering non-sustained sharp sounds."
_
"The volume is adjustable, so that you can hear normal speech even if your hearing is less than perfect (like mine), and when a very loud, sharp sound happens, the electronic sensor instantly kicks in to muffle the sound to a safe level."
_
"They worked great at the outdoor range to reduce the sharp firing sounds while allowing general conversation."
_
"You can talk to others no problem while the sharp report of a rifle is taken down considerably."
_
"These work very well with the sharp report of a handgun."

Simple

Simple:
"I will explain this in two simple words Very Nice."
_
"They work great outdoors, simple as that no matter the weapon."
_
"With these earmuffs, I have not had this problem, and that should be enough reason to purchase recommend this product... but there's more...Changing the batteries are VERY simple, especially when compared to the competition."
_
"Make it simple, make it great."
_
"Simple no brainer how to use ..and nice if you need to change batteries and adjusting for head size"

Sound

Sound:
"They are great for hearing conversation, but the sound protection from gunfire is not as good as it should be - at least that was my experience with my 1911 45 cal."
_
"I would recommend this product for anyone exposed to ear damaging sounds especially if you need to communicate."
_
"Sound attenuation is not good."
_
"Sound quality not the best, one side stronger than the other."
_
"With these the cheek weld problem is gone but they do not offer as much sound reduction as the heavier models."
_
"Unfortunately, the electronic sound suppression doesn't work so they're just a pair of earmuffs with music from the outset."
_
"Better than ones used in aus army, the ambient sounds are excellent."
_
"I have shot everything from a .380 to an AR-10 (.308 Round) and literally everything in between and the sound stoppage was great."
_
"The stereo microphones work great you can tell which direction sound is coming from."
_
"These tings are compact and are great for protecting your ears while allowing you to hear sounds from behind and in the area."
_
"you are receiving a decent amount of protection so it sounds louder than other ear protection but a couple of shots isn't going to hurt at all."

Static

Static:
"Only used these a couple of times and the left ear is dead or just emits static into my ear."
_
"There is some slight electronic static to be heard, but it's nowhere near the point of being annoying."
_
"Also, I have static when I hook up my ipod to it...it's not very clear sounding."
_
"I recently purchased these ear muffs for work and they work very well, my only complaint is the amount of static feed back they have when volume is turned up, but it is minimally annoying and for the $ these are excellent."
_
"The static feedback wasn't consistent or terrible when it occurred and didn't interfere with operations."
_
"One side has static, the other side has a clear sound."
_
"I have had these a little under a year now and they have performed great the only reason I gave them a four was because there is a little static noise but other wise they are perfect they cut off plenty off noise when shooting and the microphone allows in plenty of noise actually amplifying the world around you except when you fire."
_
"Overall pretty good a little static when set low."
_
"No static or white noise, and the sound protection is good."

_
"Battery usage was heavier and could easily keep on and run down."

Volume

Volume:
"On Off is on the volume control - but is not easy to accidentally turn on if thrown in your range bag."
_
"wind noise is always a problem, so it helps to keep the volume down."
_
"Best way I would say to test sound amplifier is snap fingers with full volume then without any, does very well to gauge the difference."
_
"My only complaint is that the mp3 volume gets louder when you turn up the outside sound amplifier."
_
"With already having hearing problems, I appreciate the fact that you can turn up the volume and hold a comfortable conversation while wearing these."
_
"The Peltors have individual volume controls which can be a plus but I found to be annoying."
_
"Just adjust the volume as needed and you'll be amazed."
_
"The volume adjustment is great; Allows you to here at normal levels or amplified when you want to."
_
"I found myself 'searching' for the volume control knob instead of my fingers easily finding it's location."
_
"Sound reduction is amazing, and with the volume all the way up, you can hear BETTER than your usual hearing."
_
"and was able to hear a normal volume conversation in the same room."
