"This is a great ear defender! used it all day every day for a week, hacking off a cement render, and they were brilliant.
A huge difference between these and my previous, and numerous, cheap alternatives."

Brilliant piece of kit
25-Nov-2013

"From spending 7 hours in a loft cutting a galvanised water tank to 3 days cutting down trees & chipping 200kg + of wood, these ear defenders are the dogs nuts. So good that I brought a second pair.
These have become my standard pair of ear defenders. Reduce the noise levels massively & are still comfortable to wear even after long hours of constant use."

"Compared to the cheaper ear defenders these make a huge difference in protection. Why put your hearing at risk, if you are frequently using ear defenders , then these are a worth while investment."

Quality Ear Defenders!
17-Jul-2012
By
, Harpenden
"Lucky enough to try the Peltor Optime 2's before I bought these and realised that they were too effective! So these Peltor Optime 1's are lighter, more comfortable and allow just enough sound in to hear what is going on with the relevant power tool.
Great for general DIY use, drilling, routing, workshop use these are light comfortable and bright yellow easy to find!
Only slight niggle is that it gets a bit uncomfortable to rest them around my neck between sessions. So I put a long wood screw in a beam above the workbench for easy reach. Otherwise a pleasure and looking forward to keeping my hearing in tact for many years to come."

"Easier to use than individual "use once" earplugs and just about as effective. Makes using a table power saw and a thicknesser tolerable suddenly!
Clean them regularly to avoid "itchy ear" syndrome!

Purchase of Necessity

"Ear defenders work well enough dampening approximately 70% of noise. Adjustability is fair and they are reasonably comfortable to wear. They are not very robust but seem reasonable value for money."
