    Surefire Sonic defenders are my favorite, muffs become uncomfortable for me after about 30 min.

    I have several pricey electronic hearing protectors that I like but always keep SureFire EP7 Sonic Defenders in the range bag for when I want pure comfort or batteries die. I can carry on a conversation with the stopper unplugged or plug them in when things get louder.

    Those look like a really good product. I'm looking for muffs but in hot weather outdoors I usually use soft foam plugs. Those look like a significant upgrade at a reasonable price, I'm going to order some and try them out. I can see they would be useful in any situation I would use foam plugs, like mowing, weed-whacking, chainsaw, etc.

    Thanks very much for the tip.

    Does anyone who has experience with the Howard Leight muffs wear glasses? Do they fit over the arms of glasses/safety glasses with a good seal?

    There isn't as much room for adjustment as some other muffs I have used, but I have never had an issue getting a good seal with them, even with glasses on. The arch that sits on the top of your head doesn't expand. All of the adjustment is in the brackets that connect the earpiece to the band, so If you have a tall or really wide head you might have issues, but I see lots of people wearing them at the training classes I've taken so they must fit most people.
    Well, I ain't always right but I've never been wrong,
    seldom turns out the way it does in a song.
    Once in a while you get shown the light
    in the strangest of places if you look at it right.

    OK, thanks. I wear glasses so it's an important point for me.

    And you can get the EPs in either foam or baffle style. I prefer baffles because the foams slide out of my ears after a bit. Foams do block noticibly more sound though. THey are my backup too.

    if you find your glasses are not true impact resistant lenses, and the temples dig in after a while with muffs, check these out. The suppressor frames are very thin and designed to be comfy under muffs all day. (crosshair are standard, crossbow lenses are anti fog)

    and the best part, prescription inserts.

    If you happened to have a problem with your eye pro, gel ear pads are available from several sources for Howard Leight muffs.
