    I searched and searched on here and couldn't find a relevant thread, so, what's a decent pair of ear-pro? I've got some cheap-ass ones now that are falling apart and they are too high profile. Howard Leight R-01526 looks good. Suggestions?

    We use peltor combat ear plugs. They are reversable for indoor/outdoor.

    I use these most of the time and I love them. You probably noticed that was what the majority of us were wearing at Hicksville. They do a good job at protecting your hearing while still allowing you to talk to people and stay aware of your surroundings.

    I'm thinking I might try the Surefire Sonic Defenders sometime soon though for work since I have to wear them with a hard hat. I'll probably stick with my Impact Sports for the range though.

    Those are what i would buy if i were to get electronics. I almost picked up a pair last week but since i rarely use hearing protection except whats issued to me as required i decided to wait. I just recently had to take my annual auditory test so we will see how it pans out and if ill need better protection and to wear them more.

    I will say after adding muzzlebrakes to my rifles recently, i definately think about wearing earpro more. The 308 isnt a problem its the 556 that makes my left ear ring.

    I also dont want to be on a hearing profile, because i would like to pass board as im up for promotion again.

    Yeah I did see. Thanks for the info. Wasn't sure exactly what model it was though. I've blasted too many dove and quail over the years and don't need any more hearing loss.

    The peltor shotgunner are my favorite non-electronic (I've been through a few lol). But those ones linked are probably the best electronic ones out there for your avg shooter.

    Good deal. Passing a $50 pair of ear-protection is way easier than an $1000+ 1911 to wifey-mate. lol. Appreciate the help guys.

    Wait I just noticed the name of the second link I posted. Is that some Korean clone of Howard Leights or something lol.
