    Question What's the best hearing protection gear for you?

    Announce: This is a survey from a protection-gear manufacturer, the purpose is to figure out "what's the best hearing protection gear for users" and try to build a earpro that meets the needs of public. No advertisement. PM me if you wanna know more about this manufacturer.

    Hearing protection is as important as eye protection, you only get one set of both and it's best to look after them sooner rather than later.
    Do you use earpro while you shooting/working?
    What kind of earpro you have?
    Are you satisfied with the performance of earpro?
    What's the ideal earpro for you? Name it or describe your ideal earpro(appearance, performance, functions, cost, etc..)
    Is CP(cost/performance) important for you?
    If you don't use any earpro, please tell me why.

    And welcome to share your story/experience of earpro with us.
    Thank you all for reading this.

    I purchased the Howard Leight by Honeywell Impact Pro Sound Amplification Electronic Earmuff.

    excellent product and works very well at the range while firing and talking.

    I grab a handful of the disposable type foam ear protection from work every now and then and use them for everything. Shooting, welding, grinding, mowing the lawn, running chainsaws etc...

    I really like these. My only gripe is, they are a bit small I wish the head band was a bit larger. Battery life is excellent and they are very durable and comfortable.

    Purple throw away earplugs from Walmart? Seriously. That's all I need to wear when shooting, and they don't interfere with any known rifle stock.

    When Range Officer-ing or instructing, I like to wear a pair of Peltor Electronic muffs so I can hear over the gunfire, and hear the radio/range control.

    Whatever you do, make sure the battery life is GOOD, they are WATERPROOF (the electronics), and the battery is COMMON (limiting you to AA and AAA).

    Keep the price point under $100-150, and you have a winner...or at least a serious competitor.

    $20 ear muffs from Wally World. I would love to get a good set of plugs, just haven't found something I like yet.

    I have a set of custom plugs, no telling what the company paid for them and they don't work as well as the disposable foam type which is what I use unless it's cold then sometiems I use muffs if I can find them.

    100% correct. Do NOT go down the custom-molded rathole. Waste of $100.

    The material used on mine was/is too hard, and they won't flex with your ear canal as you move. Sound goes right around the resulting space, and you can't do anything but sit vewwwy vewwwy still if you want to be able to hear the next day.

    I'm not freakin kidding, buy these, and stop worrying about losing one, or your hearing:
