Best of many over the years

from New Mexico
"These 3M earmuffs really block out all the frequencies - chainsaw, tractor engine, chop saw, you name it. and they're comfortable - prior to these I'd always bought 'generic' brands but am very glad I upgraded. They fit very comfortably against the side of the head without mashing your ears - so they can be worn for many hours. As with all earmuffs in hot weather there is some sweat but you can't ventilate and reduce all these frequencies. And the price is right."

"I purchased two of these and they both have held up very well. Very comfortable and not too tight on ears.
Can't be without these. A guy always needs a set of these around as one for you and the other for the friend
helping you.
