    hearing protection

    I am looking for a very low profile hearing protection solution. I am trying to find something a lot better than the cheap soft ear plugs. Has anyone had any experence with the electronic in the ear protectors, like the SportEAR?

    Thanks for the input.

    I have a pair of electronic ear muffs but they get in the way when I am shooting my scoped rifles. I am looking for something that will not get in the way like my ear muffs do.

    My caldwells are nice becaus they are low profile and don't get in my way or in the way of the wife when shooting our rifles.

    I've used the surefire earplugs and really like them. No batteries to change, and you can hear normal conversation pretty well. They don't completely block the blast but they make it tolerable. I don't have any problem shooting my 338 with them on.

    I love my MSA Sodin pro behind the neck, i don't have a cheek weld problem. The gel packs make them comfortable as well to wear hours at a time. They are expensive but... you can't replace your hearing.

    Used them in Iraq ... use them at the range. Well ... the M2 was still pretty loud but thats another ballgame. I can still hear after 250lb blast went off almost under my ass. They work
