Does anyone out there own both or have used both and can tell me the difference between the two? I like the small profile of the 6S but have never seen any. I have tried other shooters 7s and I am Way impressed. So are the 6Ss much different?

I have a pair of the 6s that I use for IPSC. I have never tried the 7s, but they appear to be a lot bulkier.

The 6s are fine for outdoors with both pistol and rifle, but at an indoor range, they dont provide enough protection for me and I have to go back to my "dumb" muffs with a 29NRR.

If you have never used the electronic muffs in competition you will be delighted -- hearing your steel hits (or lack of same) is a real help. Easier to hear the buzzer too.

Edited to add -- the only difference in the two is size and Noise Reduction Rating (NRR). The 6s is 19NRR and the 7s is 24NRR.

Good luck.

I have the Peltor 6s and love them. I have never used the 7s but can't imagine them being much better than the 6s.

The Peltor 6s are for people who need to get close the stock, such as shotgun and rifle shooters. The 7s are more comfortable, and a more noise suppressing. The 6s run on 2 AAA batteries in each ear, the 7s use a single 9V. And I think the 6s are $10-$20 cheaper.

Ah ha the get close to the stock bit is important and I hadn't even thought of that fact, which by the way makes the decision for me 6S it is. Thanks

There's another model to consider: The ComTacs.

They have the ability to plug your radio into them.
