    they are the same cheapies you can buy from harbor freight, or midway...

    i have some and they work fine, i haven't knocked anything loose inside from rifle recoil in a couple thousand rounds...

    look around and see if you can find em' cheaper...

    I have those. They're alright, though the electronically enhanced sound is just a little speaker in your ear that cuts out when a loud sound occurs (which is kind of annoying when you're talking to someone and you're relying on the speaker and a shot goes off and they cut out for a second). Nothing fancy, but definitely good for chatting without shouting on the line (I can never hear anybody through muffs, my hearing really isn't so good).

    Oh yeah, and a cell phone in the vicinity will make the speaker whine a bit. They warn you about it in the instructions, and I've experienced it firsthand.

    FWIW, Midway has Caldwell Sound-Right E85 electronic muffs on sale for 29.99 and Peltor Tactical 6S stereo electronic muffs on sale for 68.99.

    That is a pretty good savings on the Peltors.

    Try the Peltor instead- I've got the GuideGears... they're ok, but cut out for a couple seconds anytime someone so much as claps. I also have the whining problem when around cellphones or other electrical equipment.

    I ordered a pair of these -- they didn't have them in the store at Northern.

    I have a pair, only I got them from Harbor Freight too. They work really well. Sometimes, if you cock your head just so, they will pick up country western stations. I'm not kidding, they will play country music. Odd....

    I bought a pair from Harbor Freight when they had them on special for $19.99. They work as advertised and are about what you'd expect from a sub-$50 set of electronic muffs. Only one mic and speaker, so-so sound quality but I didn't expect Dillon quality at $20. I got the value I was looking for.

    I bought the North one they advertise for $55, at the catalog store for $53, they work great. I didn't like the huge bulk of the Guide Gear® ones. Haven't had the whining problems even while wearing a cellphone.
