MSA Sordin Supreme Pro-X hearing protection headset
- Product Review (submitted on March 18, 2018):
Overall the MSA Sodin Pro-X headset is a great purchase. It’s quite the adjustment coming from my peltor tactical sports and pros though as they were comfortable with deeper ear cups. The MSA’s ear cups feel a bit more shallower. There’s plenty of feedback “squealing” when donning the headsets. The frequency in which the sound cutout occurs is different than the peltors.
I’m an instructor for the US military and have these headsets on for 4-5 hours a day qualifying upwards of 25-35 personnel a day 5 days a week. My peltors would allow me to hear the pa without cutting it out. The msa’s cut out any time the pa comes on or if someone drops something on the ground. It’s almost too sensitive. Maybe this is how it’s aupposed to be and I’m just not used to higher quality headsets like these. They feel a bit more heavier and the clamping force on the head when donned is enough but not so much that it’s uncomfortable. The gel ear cups are the icing on the cake, my biggest issue with my peltors were the foam compressing when stored and not sealing on a cold morning.
I was hoping to have a same or better experience than my peltors based on all the reviews.
I’ll have to check the decibels of the PA to see if the headphones are cutting out at the correct frequencies. It’s the little details I’m picking up but overall they do work as they should. My ears aren’t ringing with either headset.
Hope this lengthy ramble will help someone on choosing their next headset.
