    Has anybody used these in a social hunting setting? I have been looking for a good set of hearing protection for waterfowl hunting. There are lengths of time between birds where we are socializing. These sound like they would fit the bill pretty good. Still need to hear birds in the distance though

    I'm interested in this as well. I currently wear MSA Sordins, but the electronic muffs are less than ideal in the cold December and January weather that I waterfowl hunt in.

    These would NOT have a negative impact when socializing. During the times when I was wearing mine at our local PRS matches I would leave them in and on during down times or after and could socialize just fine. You could even toggle them to high (amplified setting) and still talk plus hear the birds better.

    One thing I did not mention in the Video was that if you do select the High or Amplified setting to make sure they are seated properly in your ear or you will hear a high pitch squeal which is easily fixed by adjusting the fitment to a good seal.

    Kbaerg, would these have any type interference when wearing a sock cap or cold weather type headwear?

    No they do not interfere. They are a pretty small unit and as you can see on the pics, one is able to rotate them.
