Default Ear protection

I was wondering if anybody has electronic ear protection and how they like them? I use the standard 85 or 90 db pair but was wanting something that worked better.

I shoot indoors and they work OK and I also use foam plug with them.

I shoot with electronic earmuffs. They work great.

I always used electronic ones when I was teaching. They worked fine.

What? . .. really, have had some hearing loss over the years. Good to hear people like the electronic ones.
I use the old fashion type, but have moved to 33s.

No one has mentioned brand names, model and price paid, that would sure be nice.

I use the cheap electronic ones from Bass Pro and they work just fine and cost around $20. If I'm going to be shooting a lot or indoors where the echo can be greater I will use double hearing protection by adding foamies.

If you're looking for more protection just try both, it's what we are required to use in the Air Force around really loud things.

They are awesome on hunts. You can hear x3 times better with my Peltors. Nothing gets by me and tracking is easier. The gun shots also sound cool, because your ears are not completely blocked to sound. Oh, you can hold normal conversations on the range too.

I got a cheap set from Academy. They turn off when you fire or clap loud. I think they were $25-$30.
