Once I replaced one of the batteries they worked as advertised. I have never used a sound amplifying device before. I was pretty amazed. Worked good in windy conditions. They took getting used to while wearing eye protection. It was great to be able to hear while hunting and not have my ears ring for two days after. Can't wait to try them on ducks and geese. When I got them I had to change one of the batteries but have had good battery life since.

I used these one day and they worked great. I have a lot of hearing loss and have tried many types of hunting hearing devices, these seemed to be what I was looking for! The second day out, one ear started being scratchy and static noises, then when I adjusted the volume it went dead in that ear. Only one side now works.
When they worked properly for the one day, I could tell directions of noises better then anything I had ever tried. If I heard a noise, when I looked towards the direction, the animal was there. I heard sounds in the woods I have not heard in years, because of my hearing! I wish they would have at least lasted one hunting season!
I realize I paid $40 plus shipping for these, which is not a lot of money, but the aggravation of them not working after 2 days and dealing with returns, shipping and waiting again to have my hearing, I find this frustrating and not worth taking a chance to buy them again.
It may have just been the set I have, but it seems to happen all to often with trail cameras and hearing gear I purchase.
