Electronic Ear buds?

I have Walker Razor Slim but now want to move on to electronic ear buds. After for a couple of hours, they are uncomfortable and sweaty. I have been using these for more than a year and finally want to find a replacement for the ear muffs. For those who use them, what are you using and any difficulties when using them? Any help, will greatly be appreciated.

I have see the Walkers Silencer 2.0 BT.... sale on line but they are out of stock.

Thank you in advanced.

i bought a set made by axle i think. i also have a set of walker slim and howard leight impact sports muffs

i like the walker muffs better than the howard......but i am not impressed at all with the buds.

first, i dont think they offer as much protection and for me i cant keep them seated in my ear, they seem to keep squirting out. not to falling out but losing their seal, so i seem to be always fiddling with them pushing them back in my ear, especially if i am sweaty

i have worn ear protection mostly plugs at work for most of my life, they dont bother me that way.....never had a set of plugs act like these things do. for a quick shot i guess they are ok, or better than nothing but if im gona wear them for a long time i prefer the walkers and i think the muffs do a better job

could be just me and my ears. i do have some tinites(spelling) so i dont want it any worse!

so would i buy the buds again??? no i dont think i would, they work ok i guess but not enough and for me they just dont make the grade

I currently use the 3M Peltor TEP-100 earbuds. I find them to be comfortable and have no problem with them remaining seated.

I have those. They work for shooting . Bluetooth is not well integrated with sound suppression and sound amplification…..so Bluetooth cuts out a lot.

They do get sweaty and then get loose, but are easily bumped back in.
