Protos Muffs Upgrade

Recommended Posts



Looking to upgrade my protos muffs to the Peltor 3M version. Question is, can you just get the Protos brackets for the Peltors and any Peltor muff will fit?

Gusharts do the kit but only in yellow. Wondering about buying the bracket separately and the right colour muff for my helmet.


Any suggestions/photos/advice would be much appreciated

You need to buy other brackets. Did it to one of mine, because the dampening was insufficient for one of my machines, upgraded it to peltor X5. In general it seems to me, that the protos, eventho it has a certificate, does not do a very good job in noise reduction. 

I upgraded my other one with aluminium butyl in the cups and peltor foam rings. Much better now, but nö comparison to the X5.

Hi guys 

On the protos helmet topic again...has anyone had luck getting hold of the protos maclip torch and clips...only managed to find them on climbers direct but they ask for the helmet to be sent in for fitting? Is this usually the case or is it possible to fit yourself?
