Decent, affordable electronic muffs?

Post by tector »

My old electronic muffs are shot (and were lame to start). Don't want to spend $300, and my #1 priority is hearing protection (my ears already suck bad), #2 comfort. Will be used primarily for handguns so bulkiness possibly interfering with a rifle not that important. I was looking at these:

I've got a pair of those Howard-Leight muffs.
Work really well, mic works fantastic.
Plus I can listen to my music.

I have had the Howard Leight's for over 15 years now. They work great and never had a comfort issue while using them for IDPA or Steel Match. Too bulky for rifle though. Now the insulation for the wires is deteriorating and coming apart, but for what I paid and how long they lasted, I can't complain.

I like my Sordins but quite honestly, they have not held up quite as well as I thought they might.

I have the sordins and gave them to my son, they just didnt fit my ears right even with the gel ear cups, I have the walkers now, I like the bluetooth, while you probably shouldn't listen to music at the range Cause of safety commands I like too, plus we shoot at places where they aren't up your ass every 5 min. I can also take phone calls, it's not bad but people say the gunshots are kinda annoying....lol
I've had several other brands over the years , most of those under 100 pairs , no matter the company are all the same, you really need to try a pair on at a store like bass pro or Cabellas
