Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Howard Leight R-01526 Impact Sport Electronic Earmuff. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.40 stars, and the price range is $46-$65.

The Howard Leight Impact Sport is a compact, comfortable and affordable electronic earmuff that is a great addition to the range bag. The earmuff's slim profile ensures that it doesn't get in the way of the rifle stock and you can get a good, solid cheek weld. Also, you can hear as well as an owl, for this electronic device amplifies even the smallest sound! The useful volume switch aids in adjusting the sound levels.

These sturdy ear shields are great for shooting ranges, offering protection from loud gunshots noises. All this and they just need a couple of batteries for functioning.

But sometimes one size doesn't fit all, as some reviewers feel that the ear muffs are too big for small heads and do not effectively seal outside noises. The audio input is also not very efficient. One may also need to invest in ear plugs to supplement the Impact Sport's performance.

Overall, the Howard Leight Impact Sport Electronic Earmuff provides great sound suppression and incredible hearing amplification at a very reasonable price.
