Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Noise Amplification Earmuffs
If you've gone shooting or hunting before, you've probably seen at least a couple people wearing Howard Leight Impact Sport muffs. These earmuffs are popular because of their low-profile design which interfere less with rifle and shotgun stocks. They also include built-in microphones which allow normal conversation, as well as acute hearing capabilities when the volume knob is turned up. The aux input means you can connect music players or other devices to the muffs and use them like noise-reducing headphones. However, the Impact Sport muffs are ranked below the Leightning L3 because of the lower NRR of 22. While still adequate for most tasks that require hearing protection, you may want to double up with ear plugs when shooting indoors or firing magnum caliber pistols and rifles.
