    When I purchased Walker’s digiital quad muffs, I thought I was getting the best sound protection system available. However, if this is the best system, it leaves a lot to be desired.

    First the positives. The sound enhancement, especially for leaf crunching and brush rustling is amazing. It is much better and louder than regular hearing.

    Second, there is excellent protection from loud sounds. Loud sounds are completely blocked out.

    Unfortunately, the positives end there.

    There are many negatives.

    First, the circuits on the left and right muffs can give off strange sounds, unnatural sounds, like whinning and crackling. These sounds may come and go unexpectedly. I have had the extraneous sounds last most of the day while in the field, only to have the set work with no sounds the very next day.

    Second, there is no way to determine where the sounds come from. By having four muffs (receivers), theoretically, one should be able to detect the direction of sound. This is not the case. I can hear the sound of a deer or grouse, but have no idea where is it until I see it. A plane can fly overhead, and I cannot determine which direction it is coming from or going.

    Third, the muffs begin to hurt your ears if you wear them for extended periods in the field. This is especially true if you wear them over a stocking cap or facemask, as I often have to do for warmth. My ears begin to ache and I often have to take off the muffs for a time to relieve the pain.

    Fourth, the hearing circuits are prone to malfunction and need repair. I have two sets of quad muffs, and both have needed or need factory repair.

    Finally, no matter how designed, the muffs stick out from one’s ears enough so that when a rifle or shotgun is brought up to aim, the stock of the gun strikes the muff. One gets used to this, but it is annoying.

    Paying over $300 dollars for hearing protection, one would think you are buying a quality set of protectors. Unfortunately, price does not guarantee satisfaction.

    I am looking for a better system as I have been disappointed with these quad muffs.

    Broken on 2nd use, October 23, 2010

    I bought a pair and used them once. I tried to use them again and the head band broke in the middle. Walker will not respond to my email. I checked ebay for another broken pair that I could use the headband off of and all I found was another pair broken in the same spot. Total crap.

    Made in China with cheap plastic DO NOT BUY

    I bought these to replace a set of older quad muffs that died. Big mistake on my part!

    Walker needs to seriously improve their product quality and customer service.

    I would not recommend Walker products to anyone and suggest you look elsewhere for active hearing protection products.
