new to sporting clays and trap.

what kind/brand of ear protection you guys using that doesnt interfere with mounting the gun?

Thinking of Howard leight impact electronic, so i can hear people talking, but not too sure how theyd work with trap..

There are several good companies out there, such as E.S.P., Walker's etc, do your home work because like all quailty equipment they are not cheap.

I love my Pro Ears Predator Gold.They have a concave cut out on each ear so the stock doesn't interfere.Great audio and cutoff is super fast.Automatically turns off after 4 hrs.These are high end ear protectors that will set you back about $300 but believe me they are worth it.How can you put a price on your hearing?I know you will love them.I had Peltor,Howard Leight,plugs and without a doubt these are way better.Do yourself a favor and check them out,good luck.

I've used a set of EAR,Inc digital clamshell since 2002. One of the best investments I ever made. As BrowningFan said, they are not cheap, but then again neither is hearing loss.

I use foam ear plugs with standard ear muffs over top. It's hard to hear anyone talking but I would rather save my hearing. Down side is I don't wear safety glasses because they open the ear muffs and the ear muffs don't work to well.

Last two years at the Outdoor show a vender was selling ear protection that they molded to your ear. I think they charged about $60.00. Your thoughts on these

You can buy the kit at Brownell's for about $10.00 and do it yourself.

Me and a lot of guys I shoot with use them and we have no complaints.

I agree with 308 ruger. My Howard Leight electronic muffs are great. Completely protect the ears but allow me to hear everything else very clearly. I paid around $60 at Cabela's.

I'm from a different era. For that I can give no recommendations. dang, $300 hearing protectors shook me up.

I've been using plain ol hearing protectors that were available at a hunting store. If it was near any noise, on went the hearing protectors. I took noise real serious for decades.
Wore therm for decades and not just at a shooting range; I wore them when I used electric saws, near noisy lawnmowers, and even near noisy paper shredders.
Now I get mail advertising the latest in hearing aids, which I don't need. And the cost is a lot more than $300.

Avoided that cost too. But as I said, I'm from a different era. Just wore hearing protectors near any kind of loud noise. Any kind of loud noise.
