Hearing protection is essential in any shooting discipline. The Peltor Tactical 6S hearing protection muffs are a popular choice among shooters for a variety of reasons. For starters, Peltor is something of a well known brand. They also have a wide product range with models in the entry, mid level, and higher end price points for the hearing protection equipment. The Peltor Tactical 6S muffs were an easy choice when I paired the product up with a gift card and brought the price down even lower. I’ve since had these muffs for a few years and for a long time, they were my go to set, seeing quite a bit of use. By far their biggest draw is the ambient noise filtering feature which allows the muffs to boost ambient noise so you can still hear and take part in conversations or listen to range commands as though you didn’t have any muffs on. When the Peltor Tactical 6S muffs detect noise above a certain decibel level, as with gunfire, they automatically shut off and the passive 20dB hearing protection muffles the sound of the shot.
