I know there are several kinds and brands. I have the muffs but looking at ear bud styles. Don’t mind spending a few hundred dollars on some. Have you used any and what were the results? I have a hard time hearing birds and normal conversation in a blind.

There is time, and you must take it, to lay your hand on your dog's head as you walk past him lying on the floor or on his settle, time to talk with him, to remember with him, time to please him, time you can't buy back once he's gone" GBE

I broke down and got a pair of Walker's Silencer BT a couple years ago. I caught them on sale for under $150. I like that the case holds a couple of charges for the buds and the bluetooth comes in handy, too.

Apparently the app for the Android phones doesn't work anymore, but that's no big deal for me. You don't have to use it, the buds have all the controls on them that you need.

I got these a couple years ago as well. Got tired of the Walker muffs hurting my ears. Couldn't bring myself to spend $1,000 for custom molded plugs. They work great!

Yep those are the ones. Money well spent for me. Hear conversation and bird wings. Unlike much more expensive enhanced hearing devices, your sense of direction sound is coming from is not degraded. Noise reduction rating is 25db.I use them dove, waterfowl, upland, and clays. Put them in before I get out of the truck and forget I have them in.

400 bucks for avoiding permanent hearing loss. priceless.

I own digitals, but shoot weekly, clays and birds/waterfowl

You can find them under 1000 bucks now. We’re 2k few years ago. The walker digitals are 1/3 or less and probably the best value for the buck.
