Does anyone have a recommendations/review for electronic hearing protection? I have done a search for “hearing” on all boards and it only turns up one post on products for sale. Even a google search for “electronic hearing protection reviews” yields limited results. I am open to any type. Headphone, behind the head or even in ear.

Thanks
Les

Peltor Tac 6s, pretty inexpensive and very high quality (in my opinion) and are sold by a dealer on the EE for $69 I believe

I have been using Peltor Comtacs for several years, they fit the bill, Bill.

Those are nice, but I can't shoot a rifle with muffs.

Triburst1-- do you use some sort of fancy in ear protection or just good ole foam?

Doc_Holiday-- sharp and dry. I like that.

Thanks Guys

Also does anybody have any opinion about the type that the wire is behind your neck not on top of your head? In AZ a hat is a must. Almost 24/7

I use muffs for pistol shooting and foam plugs for shoulder fired weapons. I would like to get a set of molded electronic plugs, but they are pretty expensive.

Been using Peltor Tac 7's about 10yr's now.

Once you go "lectric" everything else is the suck...

Sordin Supremes, if you want the best. I still have trouble shooting a rifle with muffs though. Tactical Command Industries is the best source.

I have absolutely no complaints about my Peltor Com-Tacs

I have the Tac 7, two pairs. I did not like the compact ones, the 6 I think. My ears would always ring after shooting with them. The 7 is awesome.

I would be interested to know if the Comtac is any better at picking up sound, sound clarity, or if they attenuate better. From someone who has tried both. I can't imagine anything working better than the 7.

Been using Peltor 6's for close to 10 years or so...a long time anyway. Gotta keep an eye on the contacts since they get exposed to sweat from my head during the 'mild' alabama summers and rust.

I can just barely use them when I'm shotgunning or doing prone rifle work, but I CAN use them. They claimed they could be used behind the head or over the top but don't really seem to be either comfortable or secure enough for behind the head.

They work fine over a ballcap though.

Make sure any kind you get, you can replace the padding, (you can with the peltor's), over time that padding will get hard and/or loose it's aircell and they'll get mighty unpleasant to wear.

I resisted getting a pair for years, didn't think they were all THAT great. I was wrong.
