I got this for my daughter from as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise.

The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on the long range (it actually can fit me).

This set sits snuggly around the head and ears and feels secure yet does not seem to be putting too much pressure and it doesn’t feel too tight and is quite comfortable to wear. it is light weight and has a small profile and does not have the extra weight and bulkiness as other sets (I have the peltor adult set and it is quite bigger and heavier) that I am considering getting another one for me…shhhh. and it seems to be working well blocking noise as well according to my testing it and comparing it with my other set.

comes in pink or blue. good investment for the long run if you have kids in the shop and even if you don’t.

+1 on these. My daughter likes hers. Never a problem getting her to wear them and her safety glasses when we are working on project together.

Thanks for the review. I was looking for a good pair.
My oldest is getting interested in what the bigger tools do.
Scary for me but i guess safety is the first step.

Being one that did not pay attention to noise in my younger years, I am paying for it now. It will reap dividends in the future by making this a part of the safety lessons taught today.

Kudos to you, Sharon for teaching your daughter right and having her in the shop.

Also, I must say you look ravishing in pink. lol I strongly suggest the blue for you. lol

Wonderful to see a young woman who loves woodworking and a father that encourages it!
Is it pink for girls and blue for boys… or can we be wild and crazy and put the pink on the boys and the blue on the girls ;-)

Ellen, silly me I thought Pink would be more suitable, but apparently this week blue became her fav. color – so I may end up getting her the blue and …. um…. I might be wearing the pink for those cases that I don’t need the extra 8Db reduction in noise (planer for example would require the better ear protection set) ;)

Thanks for the review. My daughter keeps stealing mine so I guess it’s time for her to get her own pair. Looks like a nice set.

I purchased a couple sets for my daughters for woodworking and fireworks (the 2.5 year old gets startled by them :)

I love that my oldest is interested in my hobbies and love seeing other kids getting involved too.
