Vince, I can highly recommend those ear defenders, I have the exact same ones.

This will be my third Le Mans with mine. I've owned two sets of radio ear defenders prior to these (my first set was purchased in around 2005 or 2006) and tried others over the years belonging to friends as well. These are, without doubt, the best I've tried. Radio volume is good, they are comfortable, and they cope brilliantly with those parts of the circuit where we know radio reception can be a bit dodgy (close to the electricity pylons at Mulsanne, for example). And last year, Ayse also bought himself a pair of these, (I believe) he too is extremely happy with them.

I know they're not the cheapest, but In my opinion, you can buy these with complete confidence mate!

I asked Ayse which eardefenders he uses, he mentioned you set him on the right track, yes.
Thanks for reconfirming my (soon to be) choice of purchase

I'm not sure how James would describe it, but it's like a rubberised plastic. Very pliable and quite comfortable. Better than the covering on my previous ones that tended to get quite sweaty.

It's the sweaty I don't like indeed. How do these digital ones perform, my analog sometimes on the grandstand
broadcasts the circuit speaker for no reason.

Very good. A big improvement on my previous ones that I'd had for about 6-7 years. They would lose signal completely at various points in T17 and of course out at Mulsanne under the pylons. The new ones gave me an unbroken signal everywhere I went.

Well was looking at buying a new chair this year but tight as ever decided to attempt a repair, my mother was a seamstress but i never inherited her skills so should give everyone in the campsite a laugh but will see if it lasts a week.

I would like to think it's adjustable but maybe it's already maxed out?

Re sweaty headphones: there are soft covers available (try amazon/ebay/similar), makes them much more comfortable to wear, I prefer 'm trackside, especially after taking over the phones from one of my fellow marshals on a warm day!

I must admit I've bought a new chair. Millets were selling some rather smart Eurohike chairs at the weekend for £18 each so we bought three - for myself plus nipper and his girlfriend.

There isn't the adjustability that my old ones had but it's plenty enough for me and I've certainly been accused of having quite a large noggin in the past.....
