    Peltor Tactical noise cancelling earmuffs

    So rather than pump another hundred dollars into my ammo fund, I figured I'd get myself some premium hearing protection. I've decided on a set of Peltor Tactical muffs, either the 6S or 7S. The 7S is significantly more expensive (~$140 vs ~$90 for the 6S), and was wondering what the major differences were in sets aside from the obvious points listed on amazon's pages.

    6S
    7S


    Or if anyone has other recommendations for noise cancelling/amplifying earmuffs, I'm all ears (ha!).

    I can tell you that the 7S is a little more bulkier than the 6S.

    When you consider the NRR25db of7S to NRR19 of 6S the 7S is worth the price, remember each db differance is 10x of that before.
    One has to consirder what the value of your ears are. Were it me buying them I would go with the 7S.

    I'm probably going to go with the 7S, as the only con vs the 6S is that they're bulkier, so I won't be able to fold them up and fit them in one of my ammo boxes. big deal.

    I don't mind spending some extra money to make sure my ears have the best protection.

    Not Sure Of Any Differences...

    But I have the Peltor 6S for both my wife and me...they have worked well for several years. A great safety factor when you consider the protection from the 'booms' but still able to hear normal conversation.

    Well worth the money...

    I went a step above the 6S and bought a set of Peltor Tactical Sport hearing protectors. tested em out, and so far so good; we'll see how they fair at the range tomorrow.

    I use the 6s model and they work great for me at the range. I don't know what else I would want them to do so why pay more.

    The Tactical Pros have a NRR of 26DB. I was thinking about picking them up, and I might in the future; but Cabelas didn't have them.

    well, I'll let you know how my sports do; the pros are the same thing, only beefed up with more insulation (and thus bulkier). If these sports do the job, then rest assured the pros will do even better.

    Luckily I have an outdoor range, so the noise isn't as amplified.

    The "cheap " headset works fine for me. There is a 5 second delay after you shoot. Steve48

    Yeah, the range trip went great yesterday. The Tactical Sports do a superb job on muffling everything up to and including my M44 Mosin Nagant. It's really cool, you can turn up the volume and hear the leaves and stuff rustling in the background.

    The most interesting thing, though, is that the muffs attenuate the initial muzzle report, but let in the softer echoes coming off of distant trees and surfaces. The end result is this really awesome "epic sounding" gunfire. The muffs are more than worth the price I paid for them, just for that effect!
