Fantastic for the ride on mower,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Howard Leight Leightning L0F Folding Earmuff (DIY & Tools)
I have had these for over a year now and I find them very useful for the ride on mower. We have a diesel ride on and it is very loud. I find these block out the majority of the noise, you will not get silence but these cut it down a lot. They are so effective at blocking your ears that you get a lot of noise through your mouth if you open it when wearing these.
The effectiveness is partly down to the seal of the cushions around your ears, so these do tend to grip quite tightly. For a couple of hours this is fine, but you could not sleep in these and I am not sure I would want to wear them for a plane journey either. In the summer my head does sweat a little from the plastic cushions, but there are stick on pads that help to reduce this.
The folding mechanism is a bit tight, you have to push them back up into themselves to fold, but they are a well made and robust ear protector.
I tend to wear in ear headphones and use a music player as well, so these are like a very good set of isolating headphones, which is what I was originally wanting to buy. I tried some Sennheiser and Goji overear headphones, but there is virtually no sound isolation with headphones, you need a proper pair of protectors like these.
