Don't shoot with the shooting plugs
I did - with muffs over the top - and now I have tinnitus for life.
Get the cheap moldable ones from the supermarket instead
Would not recommend to a friend.
More than an idiotic use of the plugs, there was an entire lawsuit regarding the design of the plugs, and how they were fraudulently sold to the US military. Drop should remove that product from this lineup
Being a long-time shooter, and hunter, I've had multiple encounters with gunshots near my unprotected ears. If you got tinnitus for life, it was not because of these ear plugs. If they didn't work when you first tried them, you should have gone to something else and given an honest review at that point. And if your ears were that damaged from initial/limited use of this product, there had to have been additional factors involved.
Is there documentation to support the claims re: regarding the lawsuit, or defrauding the military? If so, it would help support your case. Otherwise, the claims seem fabricated.
Ok, having read that story and doing some "online research", I can't see anyone in the customer base who is willing to assert that these are not the same earplugs. And I can't find ANY comment from any manufacturer refuting the claim that these are the same defective earplugs that 3M was sued over. If anyone finds information to the contrary, please post it.
If you damage your hearing using these AND with muffs on then you obviously did something wrong. Most of the time muffs alone are more than enough for average shooting. So that means you weren’t even properly wearing the muffs to begin with.
I know this is an old comment but this should be something for anyone else to think about.
ear plugs should be used as a second layer of protection along WITH standard earmuffs if you really want to be safe. I have used plugs by themselves but they were properly fit and I could barely hear a car horn with them on so I wasn’t worried about using them alone at the range. But that’s just me. I at least made sure they were functioning and fit properly before use.
These are the very same earplugs over which 3M is being sued. They were removed from the market by 3M/Peltor in 2015 in response to an earlier suit. I am very surprised, and disappointed to see them for sale here.
