“The 2019 Georgia State Steel Championship was a great match where I shot Smoke and Hope at a personal best of 5.25 seconds in Rimfire Rifle Open and it may be the fastest time ever shot with an average string time of 1.31 seconds for five shots. This contributed to a personal best of 65.69 in Rimfire Rifle Open and securing my 60th Career Major Title!”
The Pro Ears Gold II 26 has been a very, very impressive pair of hearing protection. The Gold II 26s produce a very clear sound with rapid response time and the quality of Pro Ears is felt immediately. What I loved the most about the Gold II 26s was the comfort of the ear pro after a long day on the shooting line. I’ve spent hours on the range as a student and instructor’s assistant around multiple other shooters, gunfire being pretty much constant from morning to late afternoon. Three popular brands I had experience with prior rank nowhere near the Pro Ears in terms of comfort. The Gold IIs are an incredible upgrade from entry-level electronic ear pro. The quality in sound and comfort from the Pro Ears is worth the investment of any serious shooter, and I look forward to my next pair.
These are by far the best ear protection I’ve used. I received mine during the S-12 event put on by Carry Trainer in Nashville TN. I’ve been using them exclusively ever since. Great product, and I’d highly recommend these to all my friends.

These are perfect for indoor ranges. Like them very much. They are comfortable, good seal even with glasses . For out side ranges even better except for hot days 90+ they feel hot. I’m happy with them and would buy them again.

Incredibly comfortable with the new Gel Ear Seals, while maintaining a solid NRR rating of 26. These hearing muffs don’t hit my stock when I shoulder my shotgun either because of the contoured fit. The sound quality is excellent and there is no “breaking up” with the new and improved compression technology. Nice new model from Pro Ears. Made in the USA and 5 year warranty. Can’t go wrong-you get what you pay for. Highly recommend.

Cups come off at the worst time, poor fit doesn’t stay secure
use these professionally. Cups come off at the worst time, poor fit doesnt stay secure. Decent protection and sound quality. Pro ears charge a premium over other electronics, just disappointed in quality

Seriously the most comfortable
If you’re spending the money to buy these it means quality is important to you. There is a lot of professional grade ear protection in the market, I’ve used several different brands over the past couple years and these by far are my favorite. It’s not just the noise reduction, for me it’s the comfort. Nothing is worse that uncomfortable ear protection that get oily, irritate your skin, or are not comfortable with your glasses or eye protection. The gel seals on these IMO are the best. I wear mine at work, I pull them off and on several times through out the day and wear them for long periods as well. Bar none these are the best. Just saying…
