Hey guys,
my normaly for pistol shooting used earmuffs are too big for the A2-stock of my AR15.

So I´m looking for some smaller ones that want fit.
Unfortunately price matters , absorption too.

What do you use or which you are thinking is the best one?


Need information.

I use surefire ear plugs (EP4) for motorcycle riding, they are comfortable.

For shooting I use MSA Sordins with gel ear seals, it was hard to spend the money at the time, but I don't regret it.

Well, as I have learned in my job, earplugs just absorb the airborne noise, but they don´t cut the impact sound that is assigned by your skull.

Since I´m hearing impaired from a shooting accident by the army 25 years ago, I have about 20% on my left ear.
So I´m taking my ear protection very serious.

I would prefer small muffs with a good with a rater good absorption.

One thing to rmember about muffs is if you wear eye pro the ear piece will break the barrier that keeps noise out and allow it in with muffs

Howard Leight Impact Sports. All you need.

Only about 50 bones for a set. Keep in mind they're not waterproof, so shooting in the rain can be sketchy.

If you can swing it, the Peltor com tac's or MSA sordins are pretty damn nice (and waterproof/resistant). Love my Peltors.

Buy once cry once! How much do you value your hearing?

MSA Sordin supreme pro. dont dick around, buy them....do it now. seriously, i dont regret spending the money in the least. get the gel cups while you are at it, they are comfy i use mine for about everything, weed eating, mowing, grinding, anything involving a hammer, plasma cutting, etc. dont just think of them as shooting earmuffs and go cheap, they are far more useful than just that.

PS: tinnitus sucks, is permanent, and by the time you realize you have it, your already screwed. thrust me on this.

Oh, believe me, I do.
My cousin is having a tinnitus, some times he think he´s going crazy, not able to sleep at night.

I´m having the Peltor Optime III which is a very good earmuff and pretty cheap.
Just it don´t work with rifle stocks.

My ears are - like my eyes too - very important for me.
I always wear ear and eye protection.

Right now I´m saving my money for an Dillon 550, so I don´t want to spend so much money for earmuffs.
There must be some cheaper without electronic.

I use the Peltor Sportac's with the Gel ear seals. They have been great so far.
Whatever muffs you get (if you get muffs) make sure you can get gel ear seals. They make things MUCH more comfy.
