The Peltor Tactical 6s are similar to the Dillons. Both cost about $135. The Tactical 7 (about $180) has more bulbous ear pieces and is powered by single 9V on one side. The Tac 6s and the Dillons have AAA batteries in each muff. A friend of mine has both the Peltor Tac 6 and the Dillon and he prefers the Dillon. He says that the "clipping" effect is less pronounced. I just ordered a set of the Dillons myself.
Wolf Ears have some significant refinements in regards to clipping and sound acquisition. Wolf Ears seemed to be ignored by most, but they are outstanding. I believe their slightly higher price and limited distribution are to blame.
I just received my Wolf Ears and had a couple of questions for anyone that also has Wolf Ears.
(1) Is there a Left and Right side to the Wokf Ears? In other words, does it matter if the ear muff that has the control/switch is on my left ear or my right ear? I tried both ways and it didn't seem to matter but I was just wondering.
(2) Just WHAT does the AMP do versus just having the switch turned to "on"?
(3) The ears have little "plugs" that you remove to adjust the gain (on or off???). I took out one of the plugs and am confused from that point on. Just how do you adjust the gain and how do you know if it's "on" or "off".
Thanks for any info you might have. I really like this product (although it was expensive) but I'm just a little confused on how they work (or how I should have them set when at the indoor range).
By the way, you can get the Wolf Ears from Armor of New Hampshire (Ayoob) for $259 or directly from Gentex for $249.
The Gentel Wolf Ears are at the top of the Electronic Ear Muff industry. Not only do they offer ear protection but they also have a built in amplifier that can make the sound of people walking on carpet sound like gravel. All said and done they're not cheap--However you get what you pay for.
