Thread: Ear Defenders.

    Ear Defenders.

    Hi. I am needing a new set of ear defenders for range work. I dont want the in ear type, I prefer the over the ear headphone type. I dont care about not being able to hear the wind or rustling grass, just great hearing protection. I have seen some peltor sets up the range and seem good for the money. Any info and advice would be great guys, Thanks, Tim.

    Perhaps a pair of Peltor Optime III?

    Im a little spoilt for choice, but I went for the MSA Sordin Supreme Pro X.

    Whether on the range, or shooting clays they offer perfect protection, and have the added benefit of allowing you to hear ambient sounds clearly.

    The Petlor Optime III are quite fat though, and may not suit some people. Try some before you buy and take into account that you don't want the ear defenders to interfere with where the cheekpiece of your rifle butt is going to be. I have some Peltor active defenders which are reasonably thin but they still seem to get in the way. Active ear defenders can be very useful at hte range for hearing range officer commands etc, but not cheap

    it does point out that they may be subject to customs charges as they are imported to order

    About the best around
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    I think so. There seems no way round the 'size = noise reduction' equation!
    Increasingly, though, I use a pair of electronic ones based on the Optime II on the rifle-range, and a pair of the slimmer Sporttac electronics for clays. I do like to be able to hear what's going on.
    If non-electronics are wanted, however, I grasp for the Optime III.
