    Did a search for E-muffs on theboard and couldn't find any conclusive info. Have been using 29Db rated standard muffs and have been thinking about getting a pair of E-muffs.
    Saw GG's post where he had the Peltor Tac6 muffs on in his photo and the price at $70 is very reasonable compared to the following models:
    Walker Power Muffs: Link
    and the Pro Ears version:Link
    That pricing seems a bit out of whack compared to the Peltor model.
    Can't find any listed decibel reduction rating before the electronic noise reduction kicks in.
    Does anyone have experience with these models and are they worth the money?
    I'm shooting a 308win, 22cal varmint guns and various handguns up to 44mag.
    The Peltor version has an added advantage by being able to collapse down for storage in a pocket. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    Thanks,

    I have a set of Radians electronic muffs that work very well. They are rated to eleminate everything over 85 Db I believe. They run off AAA batteries. They also collapse down for convient storage. I think I spent $80 or $85 for them. I don't have any complaints. Hope this helps.

    I use the Dillon HP1 and they work great with everything from pistol to a 300WM with a muzzle brake and even work well when using tools like a saw.
