Overall these ear protectors work well but I am not happy with the head band-IT BROKE AFTER ONLY 18 MONTHS.
I purchased the ProTac Plus Gold Slim ear protection in Oct 2013 to use for shooting IDPA. I have used them on a regular basis and have been very careful with them due to the research I did before purchasing where some reviews stated there was a problem with head band breakage. Since I have used, and still do, another pair of Pro Ears for a number of years with no problem, I bought these to leave in Florida when we go back home, I thought they would last quite a long time. Today I went to put them on at the range for a shoot and they snapped in two spots, I was not a happy shooter not having my Pro Ears. I am going to buy a replacement head band but I am not happy with how long the original head band has lasted.
This is an update to my May 7 review.
After writing my original review I was contacted by a senior executive of ProEars. He apologized for the breakage and has sent me a replacement head band.
Any product can have a problem and to have a company representative make the initial contact within 24 hours is extraordinary. And to resolve the issue immediately is great.
Obviously to this company CUSTOMER SERVICE AND SATISFACTION is not just a SLOGAN as it is with many other companies.
I am an NRA instructor and IDPA shooter and use my ProEars at least weekly. Customer service of this level will mean I will be recommending ProEars to my students.
Thank you ProEars for correcting my problem in such a timely, courteous and professional manner.
I uses these 3x per week for range work and never have a problem. I like the compression technology, unlike peak clipping where the muffs are constantly going off and on, off and one all the time. Comfortable enough too.
