View Full Version : Hearing protection recommendations?

08-21-2012, 5:30 PM
I've been hitting the range with some ear muffs from 3M that I bought from Home Depot a long time ago for some home improvement projects. Thing is, they're pretty bulky. I'd like some ear muffs that offer as much protection (NRR of 26 or higher) with a slimmer profile.

I like Caldwell Low Profile Electronic Muffs

about $25 on sale at Turner's

some say they don't last, but mine have been fine and at $25, they're a good place to start IMHO
