Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gmyster61 Ear muffs broke too quickly
I have using the ear muffs for just a few weeks when the center strap holding the eat muffs together snap in half. Then while trying to do an emergency repair(I was at work)the center straps broke again .the only thing I can say they were comfortable and did reduce the noise well..kudos to Home Depot for allowing a exchange without a receipt (lost I presume).we will see how the next holds up,because they were barely used and I treated them well.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by FireWood HEADBAND BREAKS!!!
Bought a pair a couple years ago, lasted one year plus but used only a few times when using chain saw. Beginning of 2nd year, head band snapped in half on 2nd use of the season. Bought another pair, head band broke after using less than a half dozen times. Won't buy these again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stepboxer Headband broke
Although the noise protection is great, these earmuffs are worthless when the headband snaps in half. Used fewer than 5 times.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JohnK AVOID! Cheap.
Picked these up for the mowing season. Went to put them on this morning - probably their 4th day of use - and headband snapped. When not in use, they were kept in a desk drawer in a cool dark room, so it's not like the sun cooked the headband plastic.
Sound isolation was OK. I was very happy to be wearing them, but could have used an additional 25% of noise reduction.

For the price product 3M is very good, reduce the noise I recommended.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by brokenmuffs22 Brittle headband
I got these a couple years ago, and very rarely use them. I swear they were almost 30 bucks when I got them, so I figured, you get what you pay for - last set of earmuffs, right? Wrong. This winter, I took them out and just like everyone else, the headband broke. And I have a small head!! Terrible design flaw. 3M should reimburse all of us, for if it wasn't a "known issue", it is now. Very disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by houstongal43 Ear muffs do a good job.
I bought these to muffle the sound of my lawn equipment. They do a fairly good job. No complaints.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TomC 2nd pair where headband broke
I bought these for blocking environmental noise while studying in library, reading on train, etc. They work very well in that regard, are very comfortable, and the foldup feature makes them very compact for keeping in a backpack. However, the plastic headband cracked after about 6 months of normal use on the first pair (i.e. there are now two separate pieces and unusable). The second pair has developed a crack on the inside of the headband after about 5 months, and is going to break any day now. Again, these are not subjected to any abnormal use and are kept in the same backpack as a laptop - so no extreme temperatures, etc.
3M needs to improve this otherwise good product by reinforcing the headband, or using a stronger, more resilient material.
