Len, we discussed these over the phone today. They do look very comfortable! I am looking forward to your write up.

    Len,

    I too experience Tinnitus, 24/7, ever since a grenade exploded next to my head, not to mention repeated exposure to close quarters .45 /10mm, M4, M-60 and the occasional M-2 without hearing protection, ahhhh the ignorance of youth!

    I now find that irregardless of the type of hearing protection / enhancement that I now wear, the tinnitus is still present and as you say obnoxious.

    My question is, have you found any type electronic hearing protection that works with the tinnitus?

    Thanks,

    Doc

    Mike, thanks!

    Doc, no hearing device stops it for me but mine is pretty mild, fortunately.

    I just want to keep it mild. Thus my quest for good electronic hearing protection that I won't forget back in the truck. This is so easy and comfortable I'll always use it.

    Len

    Wish I could say the same Len.... Those dang crickets seem to follow me everywhere I go... :(

    Let us know how you like the La Pierre devices... I'm needing a permanent solution rather than toting those big Tac 7's around for the rest of my life...

    Idahoan--is there a reason you didn't go with the gsp-1, or the gsp-15? Have you tried them out? Inquiring minds want to know more

    I have a GunSport 15 coming and will compare it to the Soundgear version.

    Same here. Concussion # 3 left me with nerve damage 10 yrs. ago. Thr nerve damage can be repaired, but it's a 50/50 chance it will work. So i've been using the big and bulky Peltors. Someting more compact would be nice.
