  • The product’s representative picture is outdated and some customers have had these earmuffs shipped to them in packages branded as “Howard Leigh earmuffs, by Sperion”
  • Regular tendency to clamp tightly to the extent that some resort to clamping the earmuffs onto something either overnight, or for a few days to curtail the pressure
