We really like the Pro-Ears line. We have sold a ton of them, and I cannot recall getting a single unit back. The company that makes them is Altus Brands. They are the only electronic earmuffs that I know to be made in the US…well assembled anyway. The muffs come from Europe and the circuit boards somewhere else, but they are put together here at least.
For a really inexpensive option, there are no electronics I would recommend over the Bilsom Impact Sport. These are just over $50, contrasted to nearly $300 for Sordin and Pro-Ears, and the Impact Sport have also proven themselves to be a top quality reliable product. We sell them 20 to 50 or more at a time, and demand just seems to keep on going.
Finally, we are working on a comprehensive shopping guide for electronic earmuffs that should be done in a couple of weeks. It will let the shopper sort by all the critical variables, including price to help compare these very complicated devices.
Hope this helps…
Maybe I need to investigate ear protection a bit deeper and write an article on my findings. Do you think anyone would care, is it too much of a subjective subject or is it not gunny enough to get anyone’s attention in a firearms magazine? Whacha think?
