    What does everyone recommend for a behind the neck set of electronic muffs?

    I don't want Peltor's 6's and currently own Peltor 7's. All the Sordins seem to have a top head band which will not work with my hat for sun protection (Tilley). The Peltor 7's work pretty well with a baseball cap and will work in the house if I'm ever in my "PJ's" and find I need hearing protection (or want to listen to the bad guy breathe and creep down the "fatal funnel").

    Here is fantastic option for the money and the quality will shcok you!
    Howard Leight Impulse Sport electronic ear-pro:

    I bought my Howard Leights for about $55.00 and promptly retired my Peltor Tac6 ear-pro! It comes with a cord so you can plug an Ipod directly into them, runs off 2x AA batteries...they are good to go!

    No, HL does not make a behind the head model...but the quality of these blows the TAC6 line out of the sky!

    -It takes 2x AA batteries vs. Peltors AAA
    -Its a hell of a lot easier to access the battery compartment which is located on one muff on the outer portion of the ear piece vs. having to tear apart the Peltors inside ear cup.
    -It has an input jack for radios/Ipod
    -Its sound quality is terrific
    -its cheaper

    My thoughts on the Pro Ears are that the battery compartment is not waterproof, so when sweating a lot or while training in the rain, they will shut off.

    They are also too fragile, you don't want to drop them. The warranty service sucks. They are expensive and for similar money the Sordin's are a much better option.

    The sound or audio quality is superior to the Sordins.

    In a lower price range the Howard Leights are a great value. Everyone I know who has them has been satisified with them.

    For max NRR try Surefire Ear plugs and the muffs of your choice. M.H.O.

    I have seen them as cheap as $35 and at a high of $75. Honestly, why not give them a try?

    Subzero,

    Absolutely right, why not give them a try. When you see them again for $35, could you make a thread announcing your find? It would be a public service announcement. For $35, it would be a no brainer. The cheapest I have seen them was about $50.

    As for the LULA, I think I would rather slam the car door on my left hand, than go without my LULA.

    Cheaper than Dirt had them for $35 at one time. They're up to a whopping 42 bucks now.

    This is probably the best deal you’re going to find on absolutely top of the line electronic hearing protection.

    Tactical Command Industries, Inc.

    Peltor Comtac for $155

    I paid over $200 for my 1st set. Thank God a friend passed this link on to me when they needed to be replaced. I got them from these guys for $135 so the price as gone up $20 in the past six months.
