Peltor Alert Muff-Style Hearing Protectors

Review Summary

The comfortable Peltor Alert muffs “replace” your hearing so well you might never take them off in my shop. They protect your ears against loud noises but allow you to still hear what you need to, such as feedback from tools. Here’s how they work: External microphones on each cup pick up sounds from around the shop, and then reduce the high-decibel sounds or amplify softer sounds—keeping every sound at a safe level.
So you can hear the swoosh of a block plane as easily as the muted whine of a router. The self-leveling circuitry responds quickly, reducing the POP! of a brad nailer to the point where you'll only hear a fraction of that usually loud impulse noise. This unit also has a built-in AM/FM radio with a separate volume control.
