Howard Leight Impact Pro earmuffs
The Howard Leight by Honeywell Impact Pro High Noise Reduction Rating Sound Amplification Electronic Shooting Earmuff is designed for handgun and pistol shooters who want high noise reduction and sound amplification in extremely loud shooting environments. With a noise reduction rating of 30 NRR, these earmuffs are perfect for indoor and covered shooting ranges.
One of the standout features of the Impact Pro earmuffs is their built-in directional microphones, which amplify ambient sounds up to 4x. This means that range commands and other important sounds are amplified to a safe 82 dB, providing natural listening and enhanced communication for the shooter.
In addition to amplifying ambient sounds, the Impact Pro earmuffs also actively listen to the environment and automatically shut off amplification when ambient sound reaches 82 dB. This means that hazardous noise is blocked out, protecting the shooter’s hearing.
Comfort is another key feature of the Impact Pro earmuffs . They feature rubberized pressure points that prevent scratching of the gunstock, and a super deluxe padded headband that can be adjusted for a secure and comfortable fit.
In addition to their noise reduction and sound amplification capabilities, the Impact Pro earmuffs also come with a number of convenient features. They include a 3.5mm connection cord for MP3 players and scanners, as well as two AAA batteries. An automatic shut-off feature engages after 4 hours to help save battery life, and the earmuffs have an approximate battery life of 350 hours.
Overall, the Howard Leight Impact Pro earmuffs are an excellent choice for handgun and pistol shooters who want high noise reduction and sound amplification in extremely loud shooting environments. They provide enhanced communication, block out hazardous noise, and are comfortable to wear, making them the best hearing protection option on the market under $100. They are not as good as Sordin Supreme PRO X, but they are pretty darn good.
