    Since my budget has been kind limited for a while, I've had the Howard Leights WITH some foam buds. The electronics are not the best as mentioned by Tim in the video, but it's a cheap and effective solution to protecting your hearing. Even a .308 SBR next to my face sound like a muffled staple-gun, and yet the with the volume helps me to hear conversation and what's going on around me with clarity. If you only use the HLs, the sound of one's voice does get a little annoying. Adding the foams really cuts down on the fatigue from the bang one gets and the negatives of the electronics. Just a suggestion if one is looking to protect hearing and save/ budget a little.

    Great thread and thanks for the insight. I've also been planning to upgrade from my Howard Leight earpro. I think I will also go with a pair of the Sordins.

    I have the Howard Leights and have doubled up with foam plugs (especially) in doors.

    However, I got hooked on the Surefire EP 7's and have been using those solo for the last year plus.

    Indoors/outdoors even with the 17s. The protection has seemed fine with the EP 7's but after a while the comfort factor isn't the greatest.

    That's why I'm interested in this thread. I'm considering going to a quality Ear Muff with the gel inserts.

    I still have no idea what Tim is currently using, I searched the inter-webs and I don't see anything that resembles them.

    I think this is what he is using and they aren't cheap.

    Scratch that, I think it's a sticker.

    Milspec is correct. He is using Safariland TCI DEHP. Go to 7:55 of that video, posted on March 9, 2017 and start watching.

    NOTE: Those Safariland TCI DEHP IMO look like an exact copy of the SORDIN just rebranded by putting different stickers on it. Compare the two side and show me the difference because Im not seeing any. Not only that but it looks like they have the foam ears which would make it the basic model of the sordins. The TCI may have a different electronic set internal, but they are definitely built into MSA SORDIN shells.

    I need a way to prevent the seal from breaking on my glasses. I wear prescription eye glasses so I also need eye pro over that. So now I have the arms from TWO sets of glasses in there.. You can imagine this is not good for the seal.

    My glasses have a fairly small flat arm that doesn't interfere much by itself but I need over-glasses eye pro that also doesn't interfere with ear pro seal. Anyone?

    I see something like this on Amazon that attaches to the outside of ear pro with Velcro straps.

    But I need over glasses type.

    A solid deal but 18db, that's the problem I see with a lot of the elctro muffs very low db reduction.

    Those uber fancy DEHP's that Tim has on in the video ar only 21db nnr

    Even the cheapo H.L. Impact Sports that I have give you 22db nrr. I'll tell you the 22db isn't all that great either.

    It blows me away that you can get 28db nrr from a small package like the Surefire EP7's (yes I do realize they seal the ear canal) but the best we can get out of a low profile muff is 21/22
