Never Again!!! Never Again!!! No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Save your money and buy something else. It took me 3 pairs (two pictured), at almost $15 each, to learn my lesson.

The best that I’ve found is Harbor Freight at 7.99 I think Not the cheap ones I’ve got about 15 pairs all around the shop.

Hey, I’m not the only one! I don’t think mine lasted a week before breaking like that.

I tried duct tape but then I couldn’t see ;^)

Did send an email to AO Safety including pix- doubt if I’ll get a response.

Hey Lew. I recommend the Ryobi Tek4 headphones. Mine actually came with a free Tek4 MP3 player, so now I have two batteries and two chargers, plus music to boot.

I have been using Peltors (non audio) for years and they have served me well. Each pair lasts about 15 years in this hot dry climate of the south west.

I got one of these marked as 3M but they did say AOSafety on them.
Mine broke in one week of having them. I took them back to Summit Tools and they game me a full refund and I paid a little more and got the Peltor 98.

I did like how I could easily hear human voices with these though, with my new ones it’s kinda hard to hear.
