    This review is from: Howard Leight by Honeywell R-01902 Impact Pro Electronic Shooting Earmuffs (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I have been shooting for 30 years, I started with Ear Plugs in the 70’s and 80’s and then Ear Muffs (Peltor non electronic) in the late 80’s through 90’s. In the med 90’s I took a break from shooting, work, family, house … basic life and stuff.

    My son Jack turned 15 in March; I bought him a Browning Buck Mark 22 pistol for his birthday. We went to the range with our old ear muffs, it was impossible to communicate; I didn’t feel it was a safe situation. Our local indoor range/gun store recommended the Howard Leight Impact Sport’s, but after using them it was clear that ear plugs and ear muffs were necessary do to the extreme noise associated with an indoor shooting range. After a few weeks I saw the new Impact Pro’s on display … I returned the Sport’s and bought the Pro’s.

    Wow these really work great! I compared the electronic Pro’s to my Peltor non electronic ear muffs and they were every bit the equal but now I can talk to my son without yelling, you don’t have to raise your voice at all. You can hear as much or as little as you want with out letting the real loud shooting noise from the range in. We had someone on our right shooting some kind of urban assault canon and the guy on our left was trying to top him with every shoot. It’s so important to be able to communicate when teaching gun safety; now I can enjoy the range with my son.

    These ear muffs are incredible … The Howard Leight Pro’s win the indoor range test hands down. High quality, access to the batteries is a synch, the fit is perfect (the Sport’s didn’t fit my son vary well) and the electronic wizardry works flawlessly.

    First and foremost, you can not place a value on the loss of your hearing through extended exposure to excessive noise levels. According to my audiologist, there is also presently no surgical procedure available to restore your hearing. Therefore, it becomes imperative that you obtain the very best ear protection possible, if any of your daily activities include exposure to any noise hazards whatsoever. Before I purchased this item I performed extensive research on the Internet, read through many Customer Reviews from the Amazon website, and talked with several experienced marksmen at the ranges. My final conclusion was that Howard Leight provides some of the best ear protection devices which are available in the marketplace. The Howard Leight R-01902 Impact Pro Earmuffs are one of their outstanding products.

    In my own situation, price was never a consideration.

    It is my understanding that this is a relatively new product from Howard Leight. Excellent information can be obtained by reading the “Product Description” section from Amazon’s website: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007BGSI5U/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_title

    Additionally, I believe that although the below information may not be readily discernible from the instruction sheet which accompanies this product, it is important to understand the functionality of this product:

    1. The headphones are designed to attenuate all sounds above 82 db, both external and internal (includes MP3s, iPhones, etc)

    2. Based upon the device design (sound attenuation), there will never be so called “normal” sound levels from an MP3 player or Smartphone (e.g. iPhone) from the ear muffs due to variability in amps (measured in mV milivolts) in the portable audio input devices.

    3. The closer the rotary control on the ear muff itself is to the on/off position, the greater the sound attenuation. The further away (far end of rotary travel) the control is from the on/off position the lower/less attenuation.

    4. At the lowest attenuation position of the control, the ear muff microphones function permitting normal communications with others without having to remove or otherwise adjust the ear muffs.

    I have been a marksman for almost forty years which includes twenty years of experience in the U.S. Marine Corps. These ear muffs are an outstanding investment in your hearing protection.
