Best Hearing Protection Muff on the Market 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…

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,…
