Who is using these?
I've been shooting a lot of Sporting Clays and 5 Stand and need to invest in a good pair of ear protection. Ear muffs are too cumbersome and Ear plug are not enough protection. I looked at the ESP Elite Digital but at $1600 that is a serious investment and don't know if I want to go there yet. I stumbled across the SportEar and Walker's Digital HD game ears priced at a 10th of the ESP's. They are rated at NRR 29 which is almost as good as the Blue Peltors. I am considering the HD Pro Elite or HD Power Elite.

Is anyone using any of these aparatus's and how are they working out for you?

I went to an audiologist, had them do a hearing test - and for $100, they did the test and did a mold of my ear canal, and custom made ear plugs, with a removable circular sections that you can specify how many DBs you want hearing protection for. I usually use my 25 to 30DB reducers. I use these when I hunt and they have suited me well. Might be worth looking into. Because they are custom to you, they fit better and allow for better overall protection.

I use the Walkers HD Pro Elite and have for 3 years, but not for what you are wanting them for. I need hearing aids but did not have the $8,000 that they wanted for a set. So, I bought a Walkers game ear at Cabelas for $200 on sale and now hear things that I could never hear before. Only problem is that I can't say to the wife anymore when she asks me to do something...I didn't hear you.

Thank you for sharing your valuable input. Never considered this as a option.

Earplugs work fine if they are worn right. Electronic hearing protection is nothing more than ear plugs with hearing aids built in. The electronic part does nothing for blocking sounds.
