I bought Tac6 muffs at www.sportsmansguide.com for $139.00 a couple of years ago. In less than a year they had static in both ears after being refurbished at the factory they still had static in one ear. I now use Pro ears Magnums www.shootersconnection.com has good prices on them
I have a pair, well two pairs of them, and have not had any problems with static. I like 'em. I got my first pair thru Dillon but they don't show them any more. I'm not sure but I think CDNN shows them for less than your quoted price.
I have a pair I bought at least five years ago, and have used at least once a week, and frequently 2-3 times a week ever since. They have worked just fine with no problems. I change the batteries about every six months. I wear foam ear plugs under the muffs, and keep the volume turned to max. Dillon doesn't carry the Peltor brand any more, but I believe they have a model similiar (perhaps identical) for about $130.
I bought mine from CDNN Investments about a year ago or so. Paid $119, but I believe that was a sale. You could check their web page for current price. Mine have been 100%, no static at all. I also have some friends with them and have gotten no bad reports on them.
I had the Peltors a while back and didn't really care for the way it clipped the noise. It made being at the range feel like someone was clapping in your ear. I also didn't like how heavy it was... AAA batteries can get heavy. I'd like to try the Proears and see if they're any better.b
