I have a hard time depending on anything that uses batteries. That being said, lots of people use them at the range I belong to and they seem to work fine. I use cheap ear plugs in combination with Remington green plastic ear muffs. If the labeling is correct it is a combined reduction in decibels of 63+. That's more than enough to keep even very loud handguns in a comfortable hearing range. Of course, the trade off is my total inability to carry on a conversation with anyone while the line is hot. good luck

Try a pair of the Howard Leigh electronic ones, they're awesome and the slimness is nice. Have never had a battery problem, just replace the AAA's every few months. They pick up low level sounds so you can hear real well, footsteps sound cool in gravel with them on. But they cut out loud sounds as well. It's the tits

Seems like the best bet is to use foam plugs with the ear muffs. I'm not worried about the price or batteries. Just want the best protection for my ears.

Thats the way to go. When you're an old fart like me your ears will thank you for it.

Actually I quit. I don't work well with others. Prefer not to share my profits. I'm still doing plenty of work.
