    Peltor™ Sport Tactical 500 Electronic Hearing Protector, 1/Pack is rated 2.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I am a chief RSO for an indoor shooting range, I wear the Peltor 500 every day. Bluetooth is great, comfortable. Read someone complaining about comfort, no clue what they are complaining about and I don't have much hair up top either. These hearing protection do everything they describe. Do get the rechargeable battery for them. Well worth the 26 bucks for it, saves on replacing batteries.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great protection Terrible comfort I have had the Peltor Tac 500 ear muffs for a year now and wear them most weekends while shooting at the range. The electronics are fantastic you can carry out conversations like you had no muffs on at all. The sound is directional giving even more natural feel. All this is ruined by the comfort of the ear muffs. For a man with no hair the headband scratches against your skin to the point you feel your head is being cut. Even wearing a cap they are still uncomfortable a woolen beanie helps

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Bluetooth The whole reason to buy these over other ear muffs is the Bluetooth...right? Well if that's your reason, don't. When there's an active Bluetooth connection the speakers emit an audible buzz/hum whether something is playing or not. Additionally anything played over Bluetooth has a very noticeable echo and the audio quality is pretty thing. That goes for phone calls, music, audio from media. Everything. I contacted 3M customer service. The guy was very nice and told me they had never heard of these complaints and I should exchange my pair through Amazon. I did the exchange and guess what, it was the exact same with the new pair. Clearly this isn't an isolated problem. I later found several other people with these same complaints on various forums. If you're listening to music -not over bluetooth- like over a stereo using the ear mics the sound is pretty good. So there's little doubt where the issue lies. Probably the most upsetting thing about these is that as ear muffs go, the 500s are really nice. Good comfort, great audio through the ear mics, excellent sound dampening. But the Bluetooth (you know...the selling point of this model over all others) is garbage.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not durable I purchased this pair of earmuffs in January of 2018. I wear these for 10-15 hours a week (at most) at work as a range officer and firearms instructor. This week, as I was putting them on, plastic pieces fell from inside the headband. I was very happy to recommend this product to customers and coworkers until now. I am surprised and incredibly disappointed that these failed after such a short time, especially given the price of the item. I’ve attached photos as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product. I shoot competitively, bullseye rifle and pistol and getting into action shooting. I like using electronic hearing protection because I want to be able to hear range commands or conversations, but when its time to shoot I like to drown everyone out. I've tried other electronic headphones and felt they worked good, but I couldn't wear them over my ears for long because they were uncomfortable because of my elf shaped ears. I've wanted to buy a pair of Peltor for awhile, but thought since I had a different pair I didn't need these, until I forgot mine for a 3 week competition. Not only are these super comfortable, but the sound quality is so natural that I literally forget that I'm wearing them. Did I need the Bluetooth capability, no, but it works great. I love that the music volume and the volume of everything else are independent, which will also make them great to mow the lawn with.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from unit will not function I had one pair, love them. Bought second pair. Install AA batteries, unit turn on, talks to me. 10-20 seconds later I get "battery empty" message and they shut down. Use brand new Duracell AA batteries, swap several pair. Same result. Will be returning. But this is not 3M quality.....
