Protect Your Hearing With The Peltor Over The Head Earmuffs

peltor-earmuffs-review

If you’re in need of a quality pair of earmuffs, these Peltor over-the-head muffs are the perfect solution. At first glance, you may think this product is designed only for those who are exposed to loud noises. While many people do purchase them to drown out loud sounds, some reviewers use them to block out every day, annoying noises such as barking dogs, dripping faucets or busy traffic. With these Peltor Earmuffs, you can enjoy peace and quiet when you need it the most. This product provides ultimate hearing protection and is CSA approved. The earmuffs are lightweight as well, making them easy to transport and wear throughout the day.

It features a hard plastic casing and soft ear molds that are super comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time. The patented Twin Cup design minimizes resonance and achieves maximum high and low frequency reduction.

The Positives
Many reviewers compared the quality of the Peltor earmuffs to top-of-the-line models. Reviewers were pleasantly surprised by the noise reduction these earmuffs offer, as well as how comfortable they are to wear. The earmuffs are easily adjustable since they are made from wire and are a great choice if many people are going to be wearing the same set. If you plan on using machinery while wearing the earmuffs, you can wear safety goggles with no problem. And, you can wear the muffs around your neck when not in use, that’s how lightweight they are.

The Negatives
Although the majority of reviewers raved about the level of noise reduction, some felt that the “professional” and “noise cancelling” connotation of the product is misleading. The earmuffs are designed to reduce noise and not cancel it out, which means you’ll still hear sounds trickle through. However, most reviewers are aware that these are not noise cancelling earmuffs and expect to hear the muffled sounds. More importantly, this product will protect your hearing and makes it safe to operate machinery and power tools.

So What’s The Scoop?
This is a product that I would buy if I worked in a noisy environment or with heavy machinery and power tools. It will make the environment safer and more bearable, while also protecting your hearing. And, the Peltor Hearing Protection can come in handy if you’re in college for example, and trying to get in quality study time. If comfort is a key factor for you, you may want to invest in a Bilsom product where the over-the-head piece snaps into place. For noise cancellation, you will need a more advanced set of earmuffs that possess a mechanical negative feedback system.
