Yinshome Ear Protection Earmuffs Gus Safety Glasses

This product was recommended by Jeremy Ong from HUSTLR

This product is just RIGHT for ear protection. The headset is well padded, the glasses are comfortable with a protective sleeve also, all the earplugs are packaged individually. It has all the needed features to block the sounds and yet still very comfortable to wear.

SureFire EP7 Sonic Defenders Ultra filtered Earplugs

This product was recommended by Chris Henderson from Survival And Prepper

When considering tactical hearing protection it is important to note that your considerations are somewhat different than considering which hearing protection is best on the range. In order for tactical hearing protection to be effective you must be wearing it when it becomes necessary. You won’t have time to stop and insert the earplugs when things begin to go south. This is why it is important that your choice in hearing protection be both comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time and that it allows you to hear normal sounds. My preferred choice for hearing in everything except range activities is the Surefire Sonic Defenders. These earplugs can provide up to a 28db reduction in volume levels if the filter caps are inserted or allow you to hear normal sounds with a slightly lower reduction of high volume sounds if the filter caps are removed. The filter caps are attached to the ear buds and can be quickly put back in place with a single finger. The slim design and low profile allow you to wear them comfortably with hats, head phones or other head gear to include helmets. This makes them an ideal choice for tactical environments.

Walker’s Game Ear Behind The Neck Bluetooth Hearing Enhancer

This product was recommended by Trey Lewis from HVAC Training Shop

I use this pair of Walkers Behind the Neck Bluetooth Hearing Enhancers. While they are targeted towards hunters, I find that they work just as well on the job site and pretty much everywhere else. When I’m working in mechanical rooms, they do an excellent job of blocking out all the noise from pumps and fans. They also have a noise-canceling feature, so I don’t need to take them out to have a conversation with a coworker. They also work well for travel. I have fallen asleep many times on the airplane while wearing these earbuds. They come with three different sizes of foam tips, so you can swap them out if your ears are bigger or smaller. My favorite feature is its Bluetooth connectivity. Using Bluetooth, I can use them to take phone calls and listen to music. So there is really no reason to take them off during the day.

GLORYFIRE Electronic Shooting Earmuff

This product was recommended by Bertie Cowan from Effortless Outdoors

I purchased these earmuffs for days out shooting and fell in love with them at first sight. They are really sturdy but are compact enough to fit easily into my range bag. They are comfortable with lots of padding and easy adjustments. Two microphones mean you get the same sound reduction performance regardless of what side the sound comes from. The noise reduction rating is 25 decibels, and whilst wearing them you can still hear normal conversations. I found they had all the features of a higher-priced earmuff and would purchase them again in the future.

SpyPoint Ear Muffs EM-24

This product was recommended by Lukas from Military 1st

Lightweight, compact and portable SpyPoint Ear Muffs EM-24 offer hearing protection of 21dB. They have ergonomic cup design and are made of flexible cushioning that easily adapts around the ear while adjustable padded headband maintains a comfortable seal. Foldable construction means their ear muffs can be easily stored inside your range bag without taking much space.

3M Peltor Tactical Sport Earmuff

The 3M Peltor Tactical Sport Earmuff is an ergonomic tactical ear protection which offers all-day comfort. It is powered by 2 AAA batteries and it has a noise reduction rating of 20dB. These earmuffs are also equipped with audio jack support which makes it usable with MP3 players and phones. A smart digital chip technology which is designed to muffle consecutive loud noise is also present in this earmuff.

Coyote’s Shooting Earmuffs are very cool-looking earmuffs, in which we use a new internal chip, after studying the current problems of earmuffs on the market in the US, we improved our product. And designed with stereo sound, the sound heard through internal amplifiers is very stereo, realistic, and clear, and can also identify the location of the sound.
