I couldn't find a comfortable pair of the over-ear type that didn't get moved by the rifle stock when on aim, so I tried these, and they're great. Normal conversation is, well, normal............

They have different sizes of soft removable and washable silicone rubber seals, so a good fit is obtainable.

These are also now available, probably the same technology, but without the recharging from battery facility, (and a lot cheaper!)

I'll second that. 

Very good little units. 

Well worth the price.

Do you use ear protection alongside a moderator, when Plinking/shooting targets? My hearing is quite good and I’d like to keep it that way. 
Thanks

I’m a happy convert to the EEP100’s fitted with the CENS Minos tips

This thread over on SD is well worth reading.....

Direct link to the tips (is/was free postage through here)....

my first set of these are still good as opposed to the squeezable tips which came with the EEP’s which got manky very quickly...like with the first use.

 

cheers

So where did you get them, and are they gougers like 3M when it comes to replacement tips? (£65 quid for a packet of 25 pairs.............they're having a laugh)

Hi all 

had the 3m ear protector s for at the range but found them very bulky , used them for 5 years and was happy . Finally took the plunge after seeing the PLUGZZ website At a local business park so popped in for a chat socially distanced etc and got measured/moulds made for the CENS system . I now have mega comfy low profile hearing protection which lets me hear the wind and my noisy feet bird twitters etc  then when the bang goes off it’s super quiet . BRILLIANT. Only downside is you don’t always hear the thump of the bullet on the quarry . Wish I’d done this years ago as now suffer from tinnitus/ industrial deafness  . Hearing has no price against it so don’t scrimp on protection . Cheers Rich

Hi there Jimmy

think you’ll be very happy with a set  , I got the top of the range ones based on the fact the algorithm/ programs have hunter and range settings . They also don’t get in the way of cheekrest. Lots of colours to choose from but thought camo  might be a problem if I dropped one near the car  . Happy hearing and shooting . Cheers Rich
