Guy's I am wanting a new pair of electronic ear muffs.  I'd like to keep it around 100 dollars.
What suggestions do you have?

I haven't gravitated to the new electronic ear muffs, I've alway used Peltor muffs which run about $30.00, fit great and always work when I grab them.  I'm sure there are number of good models available, look for something with about 30db NRR rating. Just remember, your mother only gave you one pair of ears, so protect them.

Dave, I have used a pair of Peltor Tactical 6S for about 3 years now.
They work great and are well within your budget.

Careful! My wife got a pair for me from Sportsmans Guide a couple of years ago. The electronic part woked ok, but they had no soundproofing material in them at all. Was like shooting with plastic cups on my ears.

+1 on the Caldwell I caught them on a competitor flier 2 years ago for $19.95 and they are still working. Amplifier is a little tinney but what can be expected at that price.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Don't know the brand. Comfort wasn't the issue, they had no sound proofing in them. After a short day at the range and ringing ears I checked them and they were just plastic ear cups with speakers. They did not have anything to deaden the sound. The speakers just shut down at loud noises, but the sound comes through the plastic. OUCH!

Hell, I even run my Peltors without batteries and they are all the ear protection I have ever needed.

I just put batteries in them if I'm at a class and need to hear the instructor's commands.

I haven't used the Peltor electronic models but as far as noise protection they are top drawer. We have them at work, various plugs and muffs, and they have to work. They are OSHA approved.

I'm leaning to the Peltor 7's.  They have extra noise reduction and take a 9 volt battery.  Peltor also has a model between the 6 and the 7, that has better battery life than the 6 and is a bit more user friendly to long gun stocks.

Peltor tactical electronics are excellent, I like the neck band vs a head band... Just a couple of extra batteries in your range kit, they last a long time but when they do die is when you need them most.

I just got a pair of the Howard Leight Impact sport and in my opinion they are much better than the Peltors Tactical 6 model.  I reallyl did not care for the Peltors.  You don't have to take the ear muff apart to put batteries in them.  They seem to quiet the sounds better and they also have an auxiallry input which is nice if you use a two way radio or anything.  They are only $60
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.
