    Hey Glocketeers! ;)

    Got the bug again and have been hitting the range the last few weeks but I'm afraid my gear may be outdated. I have an old set of Dillon electronic ears and to be honest - I don't know how I put up with the hard plastic ear cushions/pads that cover your ear. With the advent of hi-fi headphones and comfort, these Dillon ears don't compare in the comfort game.

    So it looks like this old bird needs to step up my ear protection game. Would like to stick with the electronic flavor but open to suggestions from those that are just overjoyed with their ears. Not trying to break the bank (need ammo and booze) but like the old saying goes: best bang for the buck. I like the low profile muffs but do realize those typically provide better protection. I also use foam earplugs for insurance.

    Your input is greatly 'preciated!

    I use mine almost everyday and I love them, just remember to clean them often.

    Check out the Howard Leight Impact Sports, I really enjoy mine and a lot of people on here use them. For $50 they are awesome, and probably the "best bang for the buck".

    I use the Howard Leight's as well, awesome electronic ears. My problem with them is they get freakin hot shooting outdoors in the summer, so I might pick up Surefire EP4s.

    +1 on the Howard Leight Impact Sports. Low profile. Relatively cheap for electronic ears ($30 on sale, normally $50ish). Works exactly the way you'd expect them to work. Very comfortable for me.

    How are these at an indoor range? Or would you say they should be used outdoors?

    I use these as well and they are great indoors and out. Truly magnificent engineering for such a simple and inexpensive product!

    Oooo, I used to think just an occassianal shreek from an intake on the TA-4J I worked on wouldn't matter either. I now get used to saying,"HUH" quite frequently. But, to each his own.

    That's not something that needs to be trained. If I were you, I'd start wearing hearing protection.
