What experts didn't like
Though adjustable, the fit might be too snug for larger users.
- BestReviews
So, these earmuffs block out more noise but since they are passive muffs, you can still hear others talk around you.

One big dislike I have with these Pro For Sho earmuffs is that they fit tight when worn on the neck.

An Overview On Ear Muffs

Once the refreshing fall temperatures begin to drop, you need to start dawning more outerwear to stay warm. One part of your body that is especially susceptible to the cold is your ears. On a blustery cold day, your ears can turn red in just a minute or two. To protect these precious instruments of hearing, you’ll want to wear a pair of earmuffs.

With several different types of earmuffs on the market, it’s important to compare and contrast each one. After you have an idea of what each pair offers, you’ll be able to decide which set is right for you.

First, you’ll want to examine the design of the earmuffs. Some earmuffs are made to simply cover your ears. They are best if you want to wear earbuds underneath, headgear over top or you simply don’t want to mess up your hairstyle. Then there are the earmuffs that resemble headbands, which are more likely to stay in place for longer periods of time or during more rigorous play, such as a snowball fight.

Next, check to see if the earmuffs are adjustable or available in different sizes. The Mpow Noise Reduction Safety Ear Muff, for example, has an adjustable retractable frame for a perfect fit no matter what your head size.

Since the whole purpose of earmuffs is to keep your ears warm and toasty while enjoying the outdoors during the cold winter months, you’ll need to make sure they are properly insulated.

Just as important as having enough insulation is the earmuffs’ ability to keep moisture and wind at bay. Check the lining along the earmuffs and confirm that the seams are properly sealed.

DWYM Fun Fact

They say necessity is the mother of invention and that is certainly true when it comes to the creation of earmuffs. Back in 1873, a boy by the name of Chester Greenwood suffered from cold ears. During an especially bitter winter’s day, Chester devised a pair of earmuffs to keep his ears warm while he ice skated on a nearby pond. He recruited his grandmother to implement his design that utilized a combination of beaver fur, black velvet and a soft farm wire. After his grandmother sewed all of the pieces together, Chester named his new invention “The Greenwood Champion Ear Protector.”

The Ear Muffs Buying Guide

  • Always check the product label to determine how to clean your earmuffs. Some materials require hand-washing and air-drying only, while others have removable muffs that can be tossed right in the washing machine with your other clothes.
  • Some earmuffs are even designed to be more stylish. This type of earmuffs features an attractive knit design on the outside that comes in a variety of colors and a soft plush inside that feels good against your skin. You can purchase a set to match each of your outfits or stick with a neutral color that you can wear with almost anything.
  • While the most common reason for wearing earmuffs is to protect your ears from the cold, there are actually quite a few other uses for this handy invention. Earmuffs muffle loud noises to protect your hearing, allow you to sleep uninterrupted, keep your ears safe when using outdoor lawn equipment and protect your hearing during target practice.
  • One of the things you’ll want to consider when shopping for earmuffs is price.  No matter what, though, you’re sure to find a pair to fit your budget.
