Peltor muffs

Does anyone here use Peltor MT15H7F SV Tactical Pro Hearing Protector? Was looking at these and wanted to know what opinions were.

I have a set of MT15H67FB-01 (AKA Tactical 6-5 slimline) so I'm guessing that's close?

I like them & they work. I wish they had a visual clue that they were ON as you have to go fiddle with the ON/OFF/volume knobs to make sure when you fold the band up. My only complaint, Changing batteries, what a pain in the tuchus:barf:

I would not buy the slimline again because I was hoping that they would clear my rifle stock, but this doesn't happen. Next time I'll get fatties as they seem a tad more comfortable.

Would I buy another set, yep, but not the slimline.

These have the gel cups and are a little bulkier.

Probably even better than the ones I have.
The foam in the slimline ones contacts the ear, which I find distracting & uncomfortable in hot summer weather. Like I said I'd avoid the slimline if I bought again, but everything else was fine.

I don't have a Peltor, but as far as electronic muffs go i have a Howard Leight R-01526 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuff. There great, best muffs I've ever had.
