    These are the ones I use. For the price, they work extremely well. Never had any problems with them. They were so good, my brother went out and bought a pair for himself!

    The one small complaint that I do have is the size. Compared to the ones you listed, mine are a bit more bulkier.

    I use these

    http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=671923

    they have a bit better noise reduction level and are cheaper. I think they work great and they have an audio in jack so you can hook up a phone or ipod etc..(I know it sounds stupid but I've used them for plane rides and they do a good job for that too).

    Also the thing I really like is they don't "click" off like some other brands, the speakers just don't magnify the gunshots so your hearing isn't ever interrupted.

    I bought the Howard Leight ones last year, but they died on me...and not even after a wet day. They were absolutely fantastic, up until that point though, and they did see a lot of bad weather before that.

    And yes, the audio jack is something you don't admit to using, but there may have been times I was sitting all day, and perhaps a MP3 player/radio was attached at absolute minimum volume. Just enough to barely hear it, and still to the point that I was hearing noises around me more clearly than I would without the earmuffs.

    Well after much research I decided on these:

    http://www.dealerease.net/catalog/product.asp?ret_id=140211&pid=66081

    They are the exact same as the Peltor 6s just rebranded and only $20. The owner of the web site (GREAT deals on ammo by the way!) said this is the pair he uses and they work great.

    Thanks for all the input!
