Huge waste of money. Literally. Huge
First off they are HUGE! Nothing slim about them. My $45 Walker’s Razor muffs are half the size. They do not fold up any way that makes them compact. On my head I feel like mr potato head. I took a few pics to illustrate the difference.
Secondly, design must have been done by a caveman. The battery compartments are inside the muff with no cover. Just a flap of foam over the batteries. A tap on the outside of the muff from heavy rifle recoil can knock the batteries loose and they’ll rattle around in there till they fall out when you take the muffs off.
Third, the sound is as tinny and cheap as a third rate honkytonk jukebox. Harsh highs and I couldn’t trigger the sound cutoff with anything short of a gunshot. No idea why anyone would want dual volume controls but I guess some might. No noise cancellation I could hear. When I turned both sides off, the sound reduction was rather poor. Not something I’d want to use with rifle shots. Might be ok with low powered handgun rounds. To be fair I did t even take them to the range. I knew I didn’t want them within 10 minutes of opening the box.
Fourth, comfort was pathetic. Maybe my head is weird shaped but I wouldn’t wear them for any length of time on the range.

Buy Once, Cry Once
Made in US of A in northern Michigan, Veteran owned company. Extremely comfortable and a 5 year warranty. The loudest guns I shoot are a 44 mag and an AR-15 indoors and outdoors. I finally bit the bullet and splurged on electronics. I’ve used the passive ProEars and loved them compared to MANY others I’ve wasted my money on over the years. I have a fairly large head (7 3/8) and was sick and tired of the cheaper ear protection squeezin my grape along with poor ear seal throwaways! These earcups provide the perfect, comfortable seal with my shooting glasses. The cheek weld is good (rifles) with the tapered shape these provide. The batteries last a long time and can be bought here on Amazon for a very reasonable price. Noise reduction is outstanding compared to the cheapos. I can’t for the life of me understand why people settle for crappy fitting earcups and low noise db reduction to save a few dollars. It’s like the old Bell helmet campaign once upon a time: “gotta $10 head, get a $10 helmet”…YMMV

The best hearing protection made.
These are my second pair in ten years and are the only hearing protection that I continue to use after trying five different brands over a fifteen year period. Conversations and range commands are clear and generally uninterrupted by hand gun or rifle fire on the line. The original pair that is ten years old are still working but look very beat up.

Bought these for my daughter. Have had mine for 3 years. Work better than other brands on crowded range for hearing voices.
