Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MowinLawn Would probably work fine except...
We bought these to use while mowing and edging the lawn. (a 2 hour project) We hoped that we would be able to cut out the noise, and listen to music at the same time. While it is true that they do play the music, it is directly tied to how much ambient noise comes in the headphone speakers as well. If you turn up the sound for music, it turns up the sound of the mower as well. Also, both my wife and I have the problem of the ear pieces not sealing well enough on the head. If you use your hands to hold them tight, it cuts the sound well....but that is hard to do while steering the lawn tractor. It is possible someone with a larger size head would not have this issue.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by yuropean One star because:
1. Cannot adjust: If the band fits my head, the muffs are sticking out and do not close around my ears. If the muffs are tight around my ears, the band is sticking out above my head.
2. Negligible noise reduction when the sound is off. I can hear everything and would not risk using this product to protect my hearing from serious noise, such as gun shots, so the product does not work as designed.
3. Frequent interference and audible buzzing, when the sound is on.
4. If the product offers almost no protection when the sound is off, I really do not see how it would turn itself off and protect hearing when the sound is on. The sound detector does not appear to work anyway, for instance, an ambulance was passing by and I observed no noise reduction, so I turned the sound off.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cooley Amazing product!
Howard Leight is pure genius. I had the great pleasure of plinking on a friend's gun range with my daughter over Spring Break. We were shooting a wide variety of firearms and communication is always extremely important for gun safety! This product is simply magic as it reduces loud noise to a comfortable level and will amplify quiet sounds. We don't go hunting, but I can imagine they would be extremely helpful in the wilderness!
GREAT PRODUCT + BEST PRICE ON THE WEB! Delivery was quick and fast to my home!
These are EXCELLENT for anyone shooting firearms. I need to buy another set soon!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by RangeOfficer poor fit, overrated product
These are slim and fairly cheap but does not provide sufficient hearing protection. I always have to use earplugs inside of these poorly fitting muffs. My cheaper Champion electronic muffs are much better than these, but bulkier.
Finally, I gave in and bought a pair of Peltor Tactical Sport. Hearing loss is very expensive to treat, so pay a little more up front.

Used on open range with an instructor. Comfortable, never concerned about missing a word. Muffled shots to an acceptable level. See no reason to spend more, these e-muffs work great!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mick Unsatisfactory for shooting!
I specifically purchased this product for shooting. They were totally unsatisfactory for that activity as they were insufficient in noise suppression. I am sure they would be ok for situations that are not as loud!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UPSTART1 Best price available and incredible for target shooting
Just popped in the two batteries, turned 'em on and was good to go. While at the shooting range, I forgot to take them off during lunch because conversation is so audible and they are so comfortable. You hear the range firing but those sounds almost become background noise.
These obviously will be great in the shop around power tools and what not, but on the shooting range, I have worn none better.
Get yourself some and save your eardrums.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrJ Great ear muffs
Great ear muffs. Only minor complaint is that they don't quite muffle gun shots enough. Otherwise, they fit well, amplify voices & other relevant sounds, and are great value.
