Everyone agrees that the Howard Leight by Honeywell is a great brand in the world of shooting. These earmuffs have “built-in directional microphones amplify range commands and other ambient sounds to a safe 82dB, providing more natural listening and enhanced communication.” And for Cyber Monday, they are 40 percent off:
Seventy percent of the nearly 15,000 customers who’ve bought these earmuffs on Amazon have given it a perfect 5 out of 5 stars. Even the reviewers who didn’t grant it 5 stars still wrote glowing reviews. This is a 4-star review:
If you’re looking for cheap active ear pro there are myriad options available from $15 to over $1,000. There is a reason these Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs are probably the most popular model of their type on the market — they’re dirt cheap and work very well. They’re built well for a $40 product, and battery replacement — the 3M Peltor’s Achilles’ Heel — is sublimely simple, quick, and intuitive. That, and standard alkaline batteries seemingly last forever! They feel much more well built, and fit and feel MUCH nicer than the $50 Peltors they compete with. I have had three sets of Peltors as well (and have ComTac III and IV’s too), and these Leights are a far superior alternative to the 3M’s. If you’re considering both units, there’s your answer — get the Leights. Period.
We have our own private rifle and handgun range on our property, so we’re always shooting. We also attend a number of carbine and pistol classes each year, where some of them are VERY hard on gear, but these muffs have taken a beating and keep on going — even in a downpour! We’re also big into the night vision world, so I was pleasantly surprised when the Team Wendy ComTac headset adapters worked with these muffs almost PERFECTLY (see photos I’ve attached to this review). No need to be wed to Peltor if you need to run ear pro on your helmet(s)!
Noise reduction is about the same as the Peltor units, but ambient sound amplification with the Leights is MUCH better. Where it was difficult to hear subtle sounds with the Peltors, the Leights give you Superman-like hearing! Yet another plus in the Leight column.
They Howard Leights — in our extensive experience — are: MORE durable, MORE comfortable, have MUCH better battery installation, LOOK better, FEEL like they’re higher quality, PERFORM better, and now that we’ve discovered they can use the Peltor helmet mount adapters, there is simply NO reason to ever get another set of the cheap Peltors.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot, they’re 20% CHEAPER to boot! Can it get any better? I don’t see how.
Just wait until you see what those who gave it 5 stars wrote!
