My Leight Impact Sports finally died.

Which currently available low profile earmuffs, passive or electronic give the best fit over glasses and the best sound reduction?


BTW, I always double up with foam plugs underneath.

I use an MSA Sordin set similar to this.

They are pricy as compared to countless others, but I am completely satisfied with them both for noise reduction and how they work with long guns.

I always doubled up on ear pro and I’ve never found muffs that worked with an M16 or a Rem870....

So I just use custom ear-pro that’s silicone and blocks 35~ db....I use a suppressor on all my rifles now due to my hearing loss accrued over 20 years of military service and teaching firearms.

I also use and would second sigfreund on the MSA Sordin as quite good. I double as well always.

Are the Sordins stereo; can you tell the direction sound is coming from?

Yes.

I have Howard Leight with the Noisefighter replacement ear muffs with glasses cut. I like them a lot, very comfortable with both rifle and shotgun, and that option is tons cheaper than the Sordins, especially if you are going to double up anyway, which I also do due to tinnitus.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them.'
