    Ear Protection

    Did a search but didn't see any other topics on Ear protection so thought I would post a question. Been shooting for 50 years and always used the run of the mill headsets. But been doing some research on the net for the best ear protection available. Not interested in the $300 stuff. Just the best regular passive type. Inputs appreciated.

    For passive muffs I like the Howard Leight Thunder series.

    Howard Leight | Thunder Earmuff | Dielectric Noise Blocking Ear Muffs

    for plugs Howard Leight (again), the softer compound works better for me than the harder foam plugs and still has a 30 NRR.

    Now days even the electronic muffs aren't that expensive. The Peltor active muffs I use are available around $50.

    Have a couple of 'ears' from back in the 80s...still work fine. Bought a newer winchester brand from wally world for $10. All seem to be about the same (~27db drop). The electronic ones seen kinda cool but $10 vs $50...i'll spend the $40 on ammo or targets instead. Got a coupon for a pair from Harbor freight for $4 so gonna pick those up - then everyone in the family will have their own.
