Hearing protection

I need some suggestions for hearing protection...

I tried a $70 set of electronic ear muffs. Worked well for a while then developed noise. Also, it is really hard to put on a hat with them.

I am looking at behind the ear, similar to the Walker Game Ear. Just hate having to spend $350+++ for a pair.

I know this isn't what you are looking for, but I had my hearing checked two weeks ago and it has been getting worse due to firearms. My ENT recommended these: http://www.espamerica.com/default.aspx. Very costly, except the $160.00 Silencer model. I understand what you are saying regarding electronic muffs. I had a pair and returned them within a week. Currently I wear plugs and muffs. I tried a pair of Walkers (behind the ears) at a sportsman show and the sound was truly amazing, along with the price. Oh, according to a hearing loss chart, the number one and two cause is 1) jet engines and 2) firearms.

i've used peltor ear protection for several years, indoor and outside and they work well and are comfortable

Amazon has several different styles to choose from:

I rely on MSA/Sordin Supreme Pro X Ear Muffs.
