behind the ears electronic ear muffs

Post by taipan821 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 6:54 am

Hello all

I'm trying to find a set of electronic ear muffs that I can wear under a hat/helmet

I hate headbands, you can never wear a wide-brim (critical in North Australian summer). I am also looking at the more budget friendly ones ($100-$200 AUD). input for my mp3 very important (hey, gotta listen to those tunes) any other features added bonus.
Please also note the db protection when you make a recommendation, I have to choose one that is equal or better than my existing earmuffs

[for the majority of users on this forum, max budget is $157.98USD)

you should look into the Walker XV, I think it will fulfill your needs.

EDIT: I missed your behind the ear requirement. What DB rating do you currently have?



I don't know if Amazon works for you in terms of shipping but this headset might be what you want. The headband is not thick but am not sure about it fitting under a hat. It does have an AUX input audio jack and they supply a jumper cord with 3.5mm plugs on both ends.
