These are the 1st pair of AXIL’s I ever had. I used them throughout all my travels across the US teaching students in classes and they never failed me. In the past I had always used typical electronic ear muffs, but while demonstrating drills moving explosively or just simply attaining quality cheek weld was always an issue, These offered me the ability to do physical activities without having to worry about them coming off of my head. The quick adjust volume dial also allowed me to have an audio boost when necessary. Can’t afford the Custom model’s yet? These are your answer, and well worth the money.
