Re: Powered ear muffs?
i have the same pro ears set as mentioned before. i really enjoy them, and like the others mentioned, they are perfect for the long range game because you can hear your spotter without him or her having to yell.
the only time i have found that they dont work superbly is when the wind is blowing hard. at that point i turn them off and use them like i would a regular set of muffs.
i believe these have 26db rating (going from memory here) but it seems like they had a better rating than most of the others. i have had two sets of these for approx 10 years now, and use them for waterfowl hunting, pistol comp, and everythign in between.
i have not used in any of the other more expensive brands but, they are probably a good product as well. i have used a few of the cheaper electronic muffs. (cabelas brand) and they worked but, you could hear the snap, then you could hear it shut off the noise (if that makes sense?) on the pro ears, it shuts the noise off before you ever hear it.
also, last year while dear hunting, my dad was picking up a radio station from his cabelas version!
