Do you wear them at BFTA events? Any problems hearing ceasefires?
I usually wear hearing protection when training and competing here in Sweden, no problems hearing commands even with the passive plugs (they are designed to let through voice to a large extent). With the active type of hearing protection the hearing is actually enhanced significantly.
In Portugal I think I'll choose the passive plugs... far too hot for the Peltor Sportacs
