Hey everyone. It was my full intention to go to the gun range with my father in law to test these bad boys out. Unfortunately I didn't get to do that but have been able to use them nonetheless. These are actually great for destressing around the house. They don't actually block sound like the earplugs you use in construction. You can still hear what's going on, even have conversations but it muffles loud noises making it where it doesn't hurt your ears. From the kids popping the big bubble box fillers to making their yelling at each other actually seem like talking even with vacuuming it just made things much for calm and a lot quieter without having a safety issue caused by not being able to hear.
I think every mom should own a set whether or not they own a gun. I still hope to take these out to the gun range to test for real but I've ftried them with all kinds of similar loud sounds like clapping, slamming books, popping balloons, opening biscuit cans and the results is the same. A little noise, none of the ear trauma. Even for high pitched sounds it works. I can actually stop a headache with these. They are very tight and a little weird to put on but they fit me and everyone else I've had try them including my kids and my husband (who has a big head). They also fold up to be really small, they could even fit in my purse. The way they adjust is cool too. You don't have to do anything but put them on and they are adjusted. If you would like to pick a set up for yourself you can do so here.
