Good, but doesn't do exactly what it says
Pros: I bought these on a Daily Special for $48 a pair. Combined with free shipping, I think I got a pretty good deal.
Cons: On the other hand, they are advertised to have an "External audio input" in order "to connect your mp3 player or other audio source," and while they do, in order to hear anything hooked up to it, the earmuff's volume must be turned up so high that ambient sounds (like passing cars) tend to drown out whatever I'm listening to (the earmuffs amplify all sound up to 82 dB's). And that's when there are no loud sounds. When doing something with sustained loud noise (I was mowing the lawn), the earmuffs drop not only the mic's volume, but also the audio jack's.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm very happy with these so far. I bought them to go target shooting and hunting, and I think they work great for that. I thought the audio jack would be a bonus, but it is pretty much useless, so minus an egg for poor execution.
