Has anyone used any of Walker's ear buds for shooting? Did they meet your expectations? Are they worth the price? Any alternative products you'd recommend or just stick with regular plugs/muffs?

I have a pair and can't say they're worth the $$$

Maybe if I shot at the range several times a month, but I don't and the battery was dead every time I wanted to use them 2cents

Might have a pair for sale. Only a little ear wax scared

If they are like real hearing aids the batteries will only last a week even if you only use them once. I can't explain it, but if I put batteries in my 10k dollar hearing aids and turn them on once, they last about 7 days. If I use them all day ever day, they last about 7 days. Makes no sense, but it has done it with all of my different brands of hearing aids.

I have them and they didn't meet my expectations. I don't think they give very good protection. I use the 3M plugs that are joined by the plastic cord. If at the range I would use the plugs and muffs. Years of shooting has destroyed hearing so can't afford to lose anymore.

Yeah, they eat batteries, but batteries are cheap. I like them. Got 2 pairs for my son and I. I want him to be able to hear me when we're hunting. They work well, sound good, and don't have the wind noise problems like some old models did.
