Go around the shops at MCS, they probably have all sorts of ear muffs.

You can also try earplugs if you want cheaper or electronic ear muffs, although way more expensive.

Look around Handyman or ACe hardwares. Madami Taiwanese/locally made earmuffs, wala pang P300. Madami ding earplugs, mura din la-ang. ;)

Pero kung japorms, Peltor Shotgunner na. Nasa P1600 din ata yun

basta safety equipment, get the best available your budget allows!

it is good practice to double plug. soft foam or rubber ear plugs plus quality ear muffs. the ear muffs cover partly the mastoid bone where dangerous sound levels can still travel to your inner ear by bone conduction. specially sa mga ported barrels like in open guns! tignan ninyo si gundog, bingi na! hahaha!

lalo na sa eye protection. dapat polycarbonate para di mag-shatter ang lenses. dapat ANSI rated

ear muffs: pro-ears, silencio, peltor, AO safety, etc.
eye protectors: rudy project, oakley, wiley-x, bolle, kontrol, etc.

Doc, what can u comment about the ear muffs u can buy at ACE, truevalue etc.? i've been using them for quite some time now and i honestly think it's effective to lower the sound of the shot. i may be wrong... :)

the yellow and blue? AO Safety yun and its rated to reduce 25db of sound. wear an earmuff over it

AO Safety ear muffs was selling at around $20.00 when we went to Home Depot (Tools Section) in CA in 2003. There were lots of them as well as AO safety glasses.

The same AO safety gear were sold at Wal-Mart in Dickson, TN. There were even 3-in-one AO safety glasses (gray, clear, and yellow) for $20.00

I was surprised when they were sold at three times the price at Twin Pines while you could find them at hardware stores in the US cheap.

I still have my Peltor H9 ear muffs that I bought in CA in 1990. Just took care of it well, wiping them with a damp cloth after use.

Hirap lang kapag double plug (ear plugs and muffs), hindi ko na marinig yung RO. So i always ask for a sound check before "Are you ready?". :)

My brother also gave me a MT15H67FB-01 - Tactical™ 6-S headset. It's a nice headset. You could hear normal coversation, and cancels loud noises when it detects them.

I think he bought the Tactical 7S Classic.

Ako naka double plug, madalas mangyari sa akin "load and make ready" palang hindi ko na dinig. ;f But it helps prevent yun tweaking ko.

Mga Sir buhayin ko lang ulit itong topic na ito. Interesado kasi ako sa electronic earmuffs kaya pinag iisipan ko kung ano ang bibilihin kung Peltor or pro-ears. Most of the time ear-plugs lang po kasi ang gamit ko kahit nung naandyan po ako sa Pinas. Which do you think will last longer among the two brand? BTW, Peltor is cheaper than Pro-ears by half. Dyan po sa atin magkano po? Thanks Kabayan.;)

sila gundog, batangueno, shihan and almost all other shooters gere uses the peltor electronic muffs. yung gray body

i haven't seen anyone use a pro-ears brand.

i use AO plugs (yung yellow baffles with the blue string and a silencio passive earmuff. sa lakas ng blast ng mga pistols natin, kelangan double plug ka palagi to preserve your hearing

As EC has previously posted, read the Db ratings on ear muffs when buying them. The cheap ones may not protect your ears and in the long term, you'll suffer permanent hearing damage.

Also, make sure that eye protection should have a safety rating by a reputable agency such as ANSI or CSA, so that they won't shatter when hit. AO, UVEX, Harley Davidson are good industrial products, although not as fashionable as the ones being sold at optical shops.

Personally, have tried silencio earmuffs and they are okay but I just dont like the feeling that somethin else is pressing on my head other than my hat, so I switched to earplugs. besides, they are cheaper.

You need to actually try out the electronic muffs because of it's shallow ear cavity due to the speakers. Minsan, depende sa tayo na tenga mo, masakit yung muffs at di pede gamitin tuloy-tuloy.

Hi! You might also want to consider surefire earplugs. Mechanical noise reduction siya. Looks nice too but a bit pricy. They have it in SOE MCS.

Thanks.

Arnoldb74, saan ka sa Sta. Rosa? My tatay was from Brgy. Aplaya, Sta. Rosa. But he moved to Binan after ikasal sila ni Nanay. I used to be an on-call Physical therapist at the sta Rosa community hospital way back in 1996. BTW, may link ka ba dun sa "mechanical Earmuff" mo? Thanks.;)

Si jmy naka pro-ears. The peltor shuts off the sound completely at loud levels but the pro-ears just attenuates the loud sound. I've tried both, maganda talaga yung pro-ears pero sobra rin mahal. I'm satisfied with my peltor. :)

Thanks for the link dre. Pero mababa yata yung NR rating to be used alone. But I think I'll check it out anyway. :)

Hey I was reading the of the Surefire sonic defender and it has a 9 decibel noise reduction rating. Is this enough? Correct me if I'm wrong but earplugs at True Value would have around 25db rating diba?:supergrin:

Changed my mind. We'll be testing this one out:

Mga bosing baka meron po sa inyo dyan na maliligaw sa GUNSHOW this weekend. Maari po ba na paki silip lang po ang presyo ng "Peltor" at "Pro-Ears." Kasi kung Hindi po naman malayo ang presyo dito ay dyan ko na lang pabiblihin ang tatay ko. Salamat po.
