*Please note: The HY80 Gel Earseals will fit on this headset but it is a tighter fit then usual. We recommend that you ask someone to help you snap in the last corner of the seal that can be hard to do by yourself. Self installation is possible but can be difficult*

- Too cotton-picking techy for my firing range
Too gimmicky. Bought the Replacement Gel Sealing Rings.
Blankety-blank things. No installation instructions. How does one remove the old sealing rings. Just too much to mess with.

- Excellent hearing protection with natural ambient sound
I work as a range officer on an outdoor range. I bought these because my impact sport muffs, while pretty good, just didn't provide enough protection (NRR 23) when the big boomers let off. I have only used the Peltor Sport Tactical 500 on two range trips but they live up to Peltor's claims. Protection is very good even with big calibers and muzzle breaks and, yes you can actually hear clear conversation while others are shooting. The sound reduction is immediate but short lived. Ambient sound is very natural, not electronic like. I wear a cap and found them to be very comfortable after several hours of continuous operation. Bluetooth works very well. These protectors also work well with noisy equipment like a lawn tractor when ambient sound is turned off. Bluetooth continues to be heard. The manual is clear and very easy to follow. The only thing that gave me pause is that nowhere in the manual or package is any mention of a warranty. A little research on Peltor's site indicates that they have a 1 year warranty and where to send if there is a problem. If these hold up for several years I would rate 5 stars.
