Electronic Hearing Protection???????

"SoundGear Electronic Hearing Protection is what I choose to use. I tried the muffs but switched to SoundGear lately because they are an in-the-ear solution. -Len Backus- Publisher of LRH"
************************************************** *************
I purchased a set of Howard light Electronic hearing protection muffs ? I havent opened them yet , thought I should ask you all what you use and if these would work it says that it will magnify low level noises so I plan on hunting with them and not taking them off . I have had two bucks sneak upon me and I couldnt get my hearing protection on so buck fever got the best of me and I shot anyways . 3 hours later my ears was still a little ringy (not good) . I have a defensive edge 4 port brake on my rum so its pretty darn loud . ( I love the brake)

Thankls for looking........

I have a set of Peltors that I realy like, I have not hunted with them but they work at helping me to hear range commands. Nothing like having the RO ask do you want a shoot over, and me coming back with "no not shooting a Stoger".

Re: Electronic Hearing Protection???????

I have two sets of the Howard Leight Impact Sports, one mine and one issued. I wear them all the time hunting. They amplify sound, protect my hearing, I can plug in music and they keep my ears warm when it's cold outside.
Plus they fit under my ACH (helmet).
Just don't get them wet.

The Peltors are much better sound quality wise, not as well built as he Howard's though. If going to hunt with then invest in some that fit in he ear.

I may be taking the Howard lites back for a refund . I am going to make sure the batteries that came with them are good tho ? I cannot tell any difference in the volume control at all for the noise levels . I already had a pair of normal ear muffs but decided to get the electronics for hunting . I will keep this thread updated.
