My first pair lasted 10+ years, of ocaisonal use and 2 years of daily use. Then I hit a tree with my head and the cord broke and then it was a one speaker pos. The newer ones only last about one year if you treat them good. I have only had the "manual" tuners. They work well as far as tuning goes.
The noise blocking works for me....Compareable to in ear foam plugs, Not quite as good but close enough for me to be comfortable.
I'm not sure where the hate for them comes from. I have had a positive expirence.
That is not to say that I'm not looking for something different....like these.

I have had 2 pairs of them and 2 pairs of Elvex relax and the elvex blows the peltors away. Only reason I needed the second pair of Elvex was because after 2 full years I accidentally left them in the bed of the truck all winter. Stay the he.. away from peltors.
