I have been using Howard Leight Impact Sport hearing protection for the last 3 years. My wife just started using the Peltor Tactical 6S earmuffs and I tried them and now I am using them myself. Superior comfort and sound protection. (Posted on 6/20/2012)

I was extremely happy with the purchase of the Peltor Headset. Enviro had the best price I could find as low as %25 to %50 cheaper then anyone else. It's nice to finally be able to go shooting and have a conversation with people and not worry about putting my ear protection back on. (Posted on 3/12/2012)

I bought a pair of these when they first came out in the late 90's and love them. I purchased these for a birthday gift for my best friend and they are even better than the original ones. I will be getting another new pair for myself. Great service and really fast shipping. Placed order late Monday evening and received them on Friday. Will definitely be a repeat customer.

I regularly fly on CH-47s and C-130s and this headset is great for both. I can communicate clearly while protecting my ears from the excessive noise. Definitely worth the price! (Posted on 6/13/2011)

The best. These have seperate ear control and will also pickup voices at distances and magnify while lowering gunshot noises. Also comfortable to use. This is my second set, the first was taken at the range by someone that thought they needed them more. (Posted on 5/25/2011)

Without question the Peltor Tactical 6S serves the function required for me, I'm a law enforcement officer/Marine and use it frequently. Others that have used mine have requested purchase info. (Posted on 5/20/2011)
Review by Chris Destremps
The Peltor Tactical 6s headset is light weight and extremely comfortable to wear. The first time I wore them on the range, the person in the next booth from me was firing a 357 magnum. They worked superbly that day and every time I have used them. The price was a value for the performance. I have recommended this headset to friends and members of my gun club and they have been very satisfied with them. I will purchase the Peltor 6s again . (Posted on 3/8/2011)

Fast shipping. Ordered it on Friday and received it on Monday! The headband of this headset seems a little cheap but all in all the ear protection was great. The noise cancellation worked well and I was able to clearly hear people talking on the range. The battery installation, like others said, was tricky and kind of a pain but manageable.

Remarkable. First set of electronic muffs...these work very, very well.
Battery install easy...use method 2 described in instructions...small screwdriver, twist, pop, voila! (Posted on 4/25/2010)

Review by Roy Burton
I live in Australia and home a pair of Peltor tactical 6 which are about three years old.Llooking to replace them I came across Enviro safety products. Luckily I had a friend visiting America so I asked Enviro to send my order straight to the hotel where he was staying. Very impressed with the delivery and efficient service as I had to have these delivered in a specific time slot Enviro safety products well done thank you. (Posted on 3/2/2010)

My son Tony bought me a pair for my B-Day, he didn't know at the time that it would be replacing a pair I bought a year ago that someone stole from me. I love them and would never buy anything else (Posted on 12/15/2009)

Review by Dinski
Good quality, well built. use them mostly for shooting and hunting. I found they take awhile to come back to full strength volume after activating. I have a different brand pair and worked great but has very fast restore time. You can hear right after the shot, unlike the Peltor tac6s. A little tight on the head at first, but a must have for someone that shoots a lot and doesn't want to loose anymore hearing... (Posted on 11/3/2009)

Review by Mitch
I have never used any type of electronic noise suppression, so I didn't quite know what to expect. My reaction is "does it get any better!" I find them to be quite comfortable, and they work excellent. I'm buying another pair! 1 pair for work, one pair for the range. (Posted on 4/30/2009)
Review by Glenn
Super product for the price. I'm ordering my wife a pair right now. Ignore the reviews that tell you the batteries are difficult to replace in the Peltor 6S. Just follow the included directions and man-up. Great website and customer service. (Posted on 4/19/2009)

Review by Mike Barreau
Great product. Light, effective and does exactly as advertised. Although I would give the product 5 stars by itself, I would give bonus stars for the seller also. I purchased solely on best price after internet search. Even with shipping costs, I saved $15-20 over local stores. However, they also provided great service through prompt delivery. Although I've only had one experience with Enviro/Peltor so far, it has been nothing but positive. (Posted on 3/30/2009)

Review by John
As a USMC Range Officer, safety has always been paramount on the range. The Peltor Tactical 6 provides the user outstanding protection and the ability to detect and hear normal conversation levels. It is that capability that makes the Tactical 6 my ideal choice of protection on the range. (Posted on 3/13/2009)
Review by Rr
They work great and are a good slim set. They are a little tight on the head, maybe I have a big head, I don't know. For the price, you can't beat it, all my buddies that tried them ordered them a pair. (Posted on 2/28/2009)
Review by Rom
Works exactly as advertised. the delay from when it activates the noise canceling to when it turns off is a little too long, but it's better for safety that way. Enviro shipped it the same day I ordered, great customer service! (Posted on 2/21/2009)
Review by Yong
I use ear plugs with this in order to maximize my hearing protection. I turn the mic up until i can hear my range mates talking - about 3/4s to the max.

It was a pain to replace the batteries in the beginning but now I'm getting better at it. I am leaving lithium batteries in because they don't corrode.

Bought one for me, one for my little bro ;) (Posted on 2/17/2009)

Haven't used it with the battery yet, but on the range without powering them up they are great. Rapid service and shipping. (Posted on 2/5/2009)
Review by Bill
This is my second set of Peltor 6s hearing protectors.

The first set was great, the second set had the battery terminals bent on one side and there was a constant static in the side where the terminal was bent. Could have been factory damage as they were bent in, not away from the battery. anyway I called Enviro, and they had them replaced by the factory rep. I must have just got a bad one, I am usually very satisfied with Peltor products. (Posted on 1/17/2009)

I have taken this headset hunting a few times with a 12 gauge shotgun and I have really liked them. The pros would be the price. The con would be the 1 second sound return delay to the headsets. I notice 1 thing this last time out hunting just sitting down listening to nature. Out of the left cup I heard what sounded like soft static that within 2 seconds became loud then suddenly stopped. I never heard any issues after that. Again, despite these minute issues I am very pleased with these headsets. (Posted on 1/1/2009)

Review by Oscar Strope
At the shooting range I tried out several different headsets and the Peltor was the best. The sound cancelling was better, and the conversation on the field sounded normal. The new ones has lived up to my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend them. Good product! (Posted on 12/18/2008)
Review by Gun Nut
These headsets are great. I bought a pair for my mother and thought that they worked so well that I bought a pair for myself. Changing/loading the batteries is a bit tricky, but it's not rocket science. Overall 5 out of 5 rating. (Posted on 12/16/2008)

These Peltor muffs are great. I just got a chance to use them at the range and they really work well. I haven't gotten a chance to use them with a helmet yet, but they do what they claim to. (Posted on 11/3/2008)

Peltor Tactical 6-S is a must have if you are into shooting, it's a great product. The fit is really good and function is great. The shipping was really fast, I would definitely buy from Enviro Safety Products again! (Posted on 10/27/2008)

The Peltor Tac 6-S is very comfortable and adjustable. I really don't have anything bad to say about it. Takes a minute to figure out the battery access but once you get it, its simple (Posted on 10/21/2008)
Review by Jeff Williams
My police chef recommended this headset. They are very comfortable and great for the shooting range. The Peltor headset makes it very easy to hear instructions and yet when shooting give great hearing protection. I highly recommend this product. (Posted on 10/21/2008)
Review by Sheila Wills
I bought these as a birthday gift for my son-in-law. He loves them! He goes to a gun range on a regular basis and really likes the way that they take care of the noise. The site was easy to navigate and my purchase was painless. Your price was also lower than other places I'd looked at. I'll be looking in the future for other gifts for my husband as well. Thanks so much! (Posted on 9/16/2008)

I use the Peltor Tac 6 earmuffs at work in heavy construction. I like that I no longer have to take my hearing protectors off to listen to people. They get a little hot but it is worth the benefits. (Posted on 3/29/2008)
Review by Sean McGowan
I have used my Peltor electronic earmuffs without any problems. I like their slim profile and they fit under my military helmet. These Peltor earmuffs are the best gift I have received. I have used them under extreme conditions in Iraq. (Posted on 3/29/2008)
Review by David Martin
I really like how the Peltor Tactical 6 S works for shooting. I use it at the range and it allows me to hear the range commands and still provides hearing protection. My only complaint is that it was difficult to determine how to change the batteries. However, when I called Enviro Safety they gave me great instructions. (Posted on 3/29/2008)
