It all started with a $70.00 credit at Cabela’s.

I wanted to get a pair of electronic hearing earmuffs. I ordered a Peltor Tactical 6. It had a screwed up ear pad. I returned them for another set. One ear muff had no screws to anchor the electronics inside.

Returned those for a pair of Radians Hunter’s Ears. Last night I was attempting to demonstrate them and a plastic part in the headband gave way (i.e., snapped) in two places. I’ll have to return those.

Any suggestions? I require the following:

Common batteries (e.g., AA or AAA)
Outside battery access (none of this “remove the ear pad” junk)
Good amplification (40db and up)

I have a pair of Peltor ComTac II's. They were expensive, but they have been 100% reliable.
I have had them since they were first released, and would definitely purchase another pair!

I have thought about getting a set of Peltor military style muffs, but I have a problem with Peltors just now (see above) and the amplification is not to my desires. Anything else?

My Peltor 6S's have been good muffs, 5 yrs old or so?

Im ready to replace them just because, but these still work 110%.

I use Peltor Tac-7's and am very happy.
9-Volt battery

I recommend them for rifle shooting as they are quite large (but very quiet)
