Customer Reviews

Not as good as my Peltor RangeGuards Review by Larry Reed
I bought the Impact as well as the Peltor RangeGuard to compare before I bought some in bulk. The active hearing protection from the peltors seems to be much better, and more comfortable for extended periods of time than the Impact. (Posted on 9/22/2016)

Review by Mike
Not as effective at indoor range as 30db Peltor earmuffs (non-electronic) but worked OK. Will plan to use outdoor only for the time being. Not as easily adjusted at first but I expect will loosen up after some use. With or without the power, I didn't really notice much difference but didn't really try to carry on a conversation. I expect to see a difference when I take a 2-Day handgun class in a month or so. (Posted on 7/17/2012)

I had two pairs of Peltor 6S that apparently has shorted out after serving me for 2+ years. I suspect it was moisture from sweat. One of them has this squealing noise, and one has stopped filtering loud noises. Changing batteries doesn't help.

Biggest advantages I've noticed over Peltor 6s:
only requires 2xAAA, peltor requires 4xAAA
350 hours vs 200 hours of battery life
automatic shut off, Peltor doesnt have this, I've killed several batteries
external battery compartment, peltors you have to take apart the internal of the muffs
slimmer profile
more comfortable headband and muff material
external audio plug for music players
Olive Drab color - more tacticool

FAR superior to Peltor 6S electronic muffs (Posted on 1/20/2012)

I purchased this product as a gift for my son to help protect his hearing. Howard Leight is a leading name in hearing protection and I wanted him to have the best. (Posted on 3/15/2011)

Excellent for working with power tools and at the same time able to communicate with co-workers. Very pleased with my purchase. (Posted on 3/3/2011)
Review by Kent
They work as advertised. I am a small arms instructor in the Army and used them while firing a variety of small arms. I did not try them with the M2 so I can't say if you would need additional ear protection with that weapon. (Posted on 2/16/2011)
Review by Gene Manzer
I have a hearing loss and have a problem wearing my hearing aids and using conventional hearing protection muffs. These Howard Leight Earmuffs are perfect for allowing normal conversation without removing the muffs and giving protection when the need arises during shooting. Love 'em ! (Posted on 11/16/2010)

Good quality for the price. Only problem encountered is getting the battery cover off. It is somewhat difficult. (Posted on 6/9/2010)

Review by Steve
I bought this Howard Leight earmuff for use at indoor and outdoor shooting ranges when shooting my handguns. It has done the job well. I can hear conversations well and it protects my hearing when guns are being fired. A lot of bang for the buck. (Posted on 4/8/2010)
Review by ar15 Guy
Excellent for the money and the only thing I would do is purchase a better connector to use with your audio equipment the cable they include is a little cheap but works fine but can get some interference if around other equipment. I bought them for the gun range and they are working perfect I can hear the instructors and not the bangs so I gave it 5 stars. (Posted on 4/6/2010)

Excellent product for the price. (Posted on 3/22/2010)
Review by Carl Rodenburg
I have used the product one time so far. It has worked well as advertised. I have used Peltor electronic earmuffs and they cannot be beat but for the money the Howard Leight sport earmuffs are great. They fold up pretty small are are fairly comfortable to wear. The only thing I did not like were the directions or lack of them on how to remove the battery compartment cover. I figured it out but was afraid I'd break the cover prying it off but did not. Thus far, I'm very happy with them. (Posted on 2/12/2010)
Review by Mike Marvelous
This earmuff amplifies ambient sounds allowing me to hear noises and voices around me yet squelches louder noises such as someone using compressed shop air. Just the ticket for my needs. These work great (intended use) at the range as well. The audio jack is a welcome feature the boosts the functionality. Just a little quibble- they make slight static noise when working on my laptop. Yes, I would definitely recommend them and buy them again. (Posted on 2/1/2010)

Review by Sfc Garcia, Small Arms Training Battalion
I am a military shooting instructor, I am on the range for a living all day every day for two weeks at a pop. I use these, as do all of my teammates. These are outstanding. My only gripe, is that I wish they made the ear muff piece that seals them up to your head out of something other than whatever plastic material it is these are made out of. When it's hot outside the sweat tends to build up under there. I wish they used some sort of terri cloth that i could take off and wash, or exchange. The only time these ear muffs didn't work all that great was when I was on the .50 cal machine gun range. I had to wear a pair of roll up ear plugs underneath. But for rifle and pistol fire, these can't be beat. Keep some spare batteries around if you use them like I do. I change out batteries after every two weeks. As the battery declines so too does the performance. (Posted on 6/11/2009)

Review by Thjudg
I haven't been able to do a lot of testing on the impact Earmuffs yet, but the little I have done has turned out very well. They are comfortable and the sound amplification works great. I'm looking forward to using these a lot more in the upcoming months. (Posted on 4/22/2009)
Review by Mrvvrroomm
I was pleasantly surprised how well these worked given their price point. The Impact earmuffs have worked flawlessly and as advertised every time I've used them.

They are very comfortable given their low profile. A great shooter's ear muff. (Posted on 4/9/2009)
Review by Matt
These electronic earmuffs work great. Hearing amplification is excellent and they don't interfere with my gun stock position. Would recommend to everyone. (Posted on 4/2/2009)
Review by Mark
I definitely recommend this product. The ear cups are shallow/low profile which is great for shotgunners and rifle shooting, but a little uncomfortable if one has larger ears. Otherwise, they work as advertised. (Posted on 4/1/2009)
Review by 1/0/1900 0:00
The padded surface of the earmuff is quite comfortable, though the spring steel headband exerts a fair amount of pressure which could be uncomfortable over time. The earmuff does a good job dampening loud sound, while the amplification allows you to hear sounds such as voices clearly and even more loudly than without the earmuffs if desired. When plugged into an audio source, the volume increases the ambient sound and the audio source simultaneously. My goal was to reduce the volume of amplified music in my environment, and this earmuff seems to do the job admirably. I also appreciate the low profile, comparatively low cost, and automatic shutoff to save batteries. (Posted on 4/1/2009)

Review by Chet Wichowski
High quality product that earns the "5" rating for what it does as well as the price - it meets all my expectations and I recommend it to hunters and target shooters. (Posted on 3/20/2009)
Review by Bob
Balancing value with performance I give this product 5 stars. Worked for 34 years in law enforcement and qualified each time with department supplied hearing protection. Now retired and decided to make the move to electronic protection. Why didn't I do this 38 years ago? Protects your hearing but allows you to hear the world in an un-muffled state. Recommend this product. (Posted on 3/12/2009)
Review by Rudy
Worked just as advertised. The low profile design is great and the audio is excellent. I bought a couple of pairs and my son and I were able to communicate very effectively through out our time in the hunting blind. Very satisfied with this product. (Posted on 3/11/2009)

These are very comfortable and work pretty well. The single volume control knob is great for cutting down on accidentally turning them back on in your bag! (Posted on 3/5/2009)
Review by T Murphy
the product performed as advertised. The noise reduction is a significant improvement over the ear plugs I previously used. The only reason i did not rate the product a 5 is because the stock of my shotgun bumps up against the side of the earmuff. I am sure with use I can make an adjustment in stock mounting. My hearing is most important. I would recommend these. (Posted on 3/2/2009)
Review by Dustin
best product at any price works great for construction and outdoor activitys. being able to hear your buddy from across the field while hunting and others around you while still having great hearing protection is great! plus you can plug in your iPod or 2 way radio. Everyone should own these! I will be purchasing several more for my family. Save a lot of money and purchase these instead of units costing 2-3 times more I don't see how other brands could work any better. Excellent company to purchase from and they also had the best price out there. Thanks

Review by D White
These ear mufflers are great for trap shooting! They are comfortable, work well, have a low profile, and are a great value. Enviro Safety's service is exceptional and their price on this item was the lowest I could find on the internet. Highly recommend, (Posted on 2/17/2009)
Review by Curtis Gustafson
I really like the ambient amplification, low profile, and external audio source features. Wish the noise reduction would be a little higher, but on par with most others. (Posted on 2/15/2009)
Review by Bruce Willard
They will work for me and provide the protection I need while shooting. However, I wish I did not have to turn the volume almost all the up to hear normally what is going on around me. I put brand new Duracell batteries in just in case the other batteries were old. (Posted on 2/6/2009)
Review by 4jesus
I have used these twice now for hunting. They work great. I had a hat and hood on over them (below zero). Like anything like this they get a little uncomfortable after a while but still are better than the Walker's Game Ear I was using. I can tell where the sound is coming from. They cut out loud noise perfectly. I don't worry about them falling out in the woods (like an in the ear type). Can't beat the price and the quality. I hope they keep working, time will tell.

Very comfortable, appears durable (time will tell) well on the far very happy. (Posted on 1/29/2009)
Review by Dave
I was skeptical about the ability for an earmuff of this price to perform well. I finally caved in and am surprised and very pleased with them. Noise reduction is as expected, and their ability to amplify ambient sound is very good. If you are on the fence about buying (as I was), go ahead and give them a try. (Posted on 1/15/2009)

Surprisingly well made, excellent value, decent amplifier-- while i'm wearing my Howard Leight impact sport muffs, I hear things that I can't hear without them! They work great for shooting at the range. Highly recommended. (Posted on 10/3/2008)
Review by Robert A. Strait
Being an NRA firearms instructor I do alot of testing on guns & related items. I have found these Howard Leight Impact earmuffs to be comfortable, well made with a single on/off control & a nice feature, the automatic shut-off. Also a great value for the price! (Posted on 9/30/2008)

The muffs work very well. It muffles out the loudest gun blasts. I just think they fit a little too tight, or it could just be my head. (Posted on 8/25/2008)

Review by Ernie Stevenson
Received the Howard Leight Impact Sport as a birthday gift. They work well for use with th chainsaw since I don't have to take them off to hear everytime I turn my saw off. I am not "isolated" like I am with normal hearing protectors. (Posted on 2/28/2008)
Review by D. Laughlin
For the price, this is the best value in electronic hearing protection. It even included a cord to connect it to my ipod. It is nice and slim for use with rifles and shotguns. Yes I think other Peltor units might be better but not for the price. (Posted on 2/28/2008)
