Weight: Part of what we considered in our ear protection reviews was comfort and weight has a lot to do with that. It’s common sense, really. The heavier they are, the less likely they are to feel good after a while.
Volume Control: We kept whether you could hear ambient noise and nearby conversation in mind during our shooting hearing protection reviews. Volume control lets you turn up the things you do want to hear while keeping everything else out.
Noise Reduction Rating: When considering the NRR rating for shooting, remember that the higher the number, the more it’s going to protect you. NRR’s of 28-31 are recommended for indoor shooting. You can go slightly lower for outside shooting.
Adjustable: When putting together our electronic hearing protection review, how much you can adjust the ear muffs was really important. The right fit really is the only way to get the full protection you need. Being able to make adjustments is crucial.
Color: Color doesn’t really weigh that heavily when it comes to performance but it’s a nice feature to consider so we included it in our shooting ear protection reviews. Most come in standard black but you will find some bright accents!
