The Optima Series Phones are the newest release from B&B Distributors, LLC. You asked and we listened ! The Foam padded muff is one of the most vital key element on a set of headphones. The standard vinyl muff has a average life expectancy of (3) three years. During that (3) three years, every time you use them, the vinyl gets a little harder. Oils and acid from your skin, bug spray, ozone and hot conditions harden the vinyl causing for a less comfortable fit, not to mention a serious increase in ambient noise. Now pick up your old set of phones and feel the vinyl muff seals, are they as soft as when they were new? Do they show evidence of hardening denting or vinyl memory? Possibly you will notice small cracks or tears? Brand new vinyl muffs in perfect condition and under Controlled lab experiments will yield a generous 24 decibels (max) of ambient noise blocking ability. But remember the key word (NEW), what does a hardened, cracked, dented pair block ? Now we talk about leather, in those same lab conditions, leather muffs will block a whopping 26 decibels ambient noise and its claim to fame is that it will continue to block that noise day in day out, year end year out.
