    Electronic Hearing Protection

    I was thinking about getting some electronic hearing protection. I was wondering who has some experience with it and who makes quality equipment?

    JMO but these are the best I have used MSA Sordin Supreme PRO, but they are pricey.
    What can one man do? You never know until you try.

    I use Pro Ears and have been for several years now. I really like them alot. I got the ones with the 'chop side' for better cheek weld. The sound attenuation is excellent. I have had hearing loss for a long time now, but since I got these, there has been no more degradation of my hearing.

    Take care,

    Kelly

    I use Peltor 6s and Peltor 7s on a pretty regular basis, and I've been happy with them.

    Here is some info and pictures off their site, but one of the best things in my opinion is the amount of abuse they can take.

    Tactical 7S Classic - Headband Model - NRR 24 dB

    MT1H7A Attenuation Data

    * Padded adjustable, stainless steel headband
    * Single knob, on/off/volume control adjustment
    * 9 Volt Battery required, 80 hours of operation
    * ambient listening electronics provide distortion free application
    * of low level sounds up to 25 dB







    Tactical 6/Sound Tra Sound-Trapô Slim Line
    MT15H67FB Attenuation Data |

    * NRR 19dB
    * Impulse noise attenuated immediately
    * Features dual, stereo volume controls
    * Great for hunting applications and people with hearing loss
    * Four 1.5 V long life AAA batteries provide 200+ hours of service

    MSA/Sordins are fantastic, but you will pay for them.

    I have a set of Howard Leight electronic muffs in olive drab. Very low profile, which is great for rifles.

    A terrific product for around $50 or so. Mine have performed very well during casual range trips and have gotten wet in the rain a little bit, with no ill effects.

    I have been using the Peltor 6s for awhile now and have had no issues with them.

    I switched from the Pro Ears, which had better sound quality to the MSA Sordin. The Sordin are much more rugged and water resistant. I had problems with the Pro Ears turning off when my head got sweaty. This was very annoying having to constantly take them off, wipe them down and put them back on to do all over again. The Pro Ears also did not have a door to keep the batteries in place, drop them or put them down roughly and the batteries would go flying all over the place.

    IMHO, the Peltor TacSports are one of the best values in electronic ears. Retails for about $100. True stereo so you can tell which direction sounds are coming from and doesn't have the "clipping" that some other ears do when activated dure to loud noises.

    I have the Peltor 7S and it's worked pretty good. Love the feature of having the ability to listen to conversations through the mic.

    What are the best Cheapest in the ear electronic ears? My ears and head just get so sweaty with muffs on. I actually have some Surefire EP4 in the ear ones in right now. They can't ship flashlights, but they can ship batteries, ear pro and a bulb

    The in the ear ones I've seen are expensive, but all I seem to find are "Tactical" ones, I thought I saw some hunter ones a few years ago that where cheaper. How is using one electronic ear pro? Is it that distracting?
