There, I've admitted it. My ears are bigger than average, and they stick out more than average.

I am a handgunner, and I need a new pair of electronic muffs.

Which electronic muffs have the biggest, deepest, largest ear wells? I am NOT interested in how compact they are, since these aren't for rifle or shotgun. But I need to be able to wear them for 8 to 10 hours at a time, so they must be comfortable for my poor abused oversized ears.

My brother has the biggest ears I've ever seen and he wears my Radians with no trouble. You might, unless there a reason you can't, try the kind that look like Behind The Ear hearing aids (similar to Walkers Game Ear). I have a set of those also by Radians and they work well but I personally find them less comfortable in warm weather.

peetzakilla ~ Can't use anything that doesn't completely cover the ears.

tplumeri ~ Got a picture or a link to what you're talking about? Having difficulty visualizing it.

The others I was speaking of do completely cover the ears. They fit his big ears very well and I think they work fantastic. The only quibble have is that they have a feature to "conserve battery life" that causes them to turn off every so often (about every 2 hours or so). That's annoying when your hunting but doesn't matter at the range.

These are the ones my brother wears:

pax,

Whatever you get, be sure you can buy a gel-pad upgrade for it. Those make a WORLD of difference in comfort, and I think that they also seal much better.

Here's the most comprehensive site I've found for hearing protection gear...
