Hearing Protection

Shooting is a very loud activity and one that can potentially damage your eardrums. You owe it to yourself to protect your hearing when you shoot. This can be done by purchasing electronic hearing protection, ear muffs or ear plugs.

The best of these options is the electronic hearing protectors. Powered by batteries, these allow you to hear, or even amplify, normal speech and environmental sounds and yet still block out loud, potentially damaging noise. They have a cut off decibel level, at which point they cut out and become earmuffs.

The next type of hearing protection is ear muffs. These generally work by covering the physical ear itself, like the old-style headphones, with a plastic shell totally encompassing the ears and foam padding inside to deaden the noise level.
Hearing Protection
The last option is ear plugs. These are usually some type of memory foam, which is rolled between the fingers into a small roll, and then inserted into the ear canal and allowed to expand in order to plug it. Ear plugs are generally designed to be used a few times and then thrown away. If you're shooting anything larger than a .22, you should really wear ear protection. Think ahead and protect yourself.

Sensgard's New Zem Hearing Protection

Soundwaves are a form of energy, and like any form of energy, they are subject to attenuation. The unique Sensgard Zem hearing protection system was developed by a team of researchers at Syracuse   Caldwell
University to attenuate and diminish loud sounds, yet allow for the user to hear normal speech. The entire Sensgard zem system weighs less than two ounces, and folds up for easy shirt-pocket carry. The design of the Sensgard Zems makes them comfortable to wear, after an initial acclimation period. They can be worn for long periods of time, without feeling bulky on the head like some over-the-ear muffs can. The Zem hearing protection system is rated at 26 decibel reduction, on a scale from 0 to 30. The Zem system also includes four extra ear pads, as well as a convenient carrying case. Best of all, the Sensgard Zem hearing protection system is inexpensive. Get yours today!

Electronic Hearing Protection - Howard Leight

The Impact series of electronic folding earmuffs from Howard Leight actually amplify the sounds you want to hear, while reducing the sounds you don’t want to hear. This is really the best of both worlds! You get enhanced hearing: the whisper you want to hear, the television across the room, and the deer creeping stealthily through the woods near your tree-stand. You also get hearing reduction on demand: your neighbor’s barking dog, your other neighbor’s screaming kids, your chainsaw as you cut up that firewood. Howard Leight
The Howard Leight Impact electronic earmuffs let you hear better than normal until sound levels rise to 82 decibels, when they cut out and become sound-reducing earmuffs. Positional, stereo microphones on the front of the earmuffs provide for nearly natural hearing. Better yet, when not in use, they fold up into a compact little package you can stow in your glove compartment.

Electronic Hearing Protection - Peltor

These tactical, stereo, electronic earmuffs from Peltor give you hearing protection and sound amplification at the same time. They reduce noise from gunshots down to harmless levels, and they do so within two milliseconds, before you can even hear the shot. As soon as any soundwave over 82 dB is electronically sensed, the Peltor earmuffs immediately cut out. Yet, when people around you are speaking, you can hear them perfectly. Even if you’re hearing impaired, you can amplify the voices of those around you. One of the best things about this is that you have a little volume knob, and you can turn it up or down at your discretion. Peltor
That neighbor of yours with the loud, barking dog? Tune him out. That idiot down the block with the car that has no muffler? Tune him out too. Yet, if you want to listen to TV from across the room with its volume on low while your wife naps on the couch, you can simply turn up the earmuff volume knob.  The electronic headphones from Peltor have microphones on each side, giving you the full spectrum of stereo sound, which is especially great for hunters, since it allows you to hear that deer crunching on the leaves, and be able to identify its location from your deerstand. Peltor electronic earmuffs are the perfect range accessory too. They allow you to hear range commands, but reduce the sound of the gunshot.

 Caldwell
The Caldwell electronic earmuffs operate in stereo, and allow you to hear everything you want to hear, but once the sound level reaches 85 dB, they cut out and essentially become earmuffs. This selective hearing is a really great feature, and one that you can use for more than just shooting. Use these Caldwell electronic earmuffs while cutting the lawn, operating a chainsaw, running power equipment, going to the races, on construction sites, or just to tune out your significant other once in a while, for a little peace and quiet. The Caldwell electronic earmuffs have a volume control on the side, so you can turn up or down the sounds that you want to hear. The Caldwell electronic earmuffs are really an enhancement to your five senses

Earplugs


Earplugs are a device designed to be inserted into the ear canal to protect your ear from loud noises.  They range in size, shape, material, and color, but all do the same thing, block the noise from entering your ears. 

There are three main types of earplugs, foam, silicone, and flanged earplugs.

Foam plugs are made of a memory foam that forms to the inside of your ear and then back to its original shape.  These are simple to use, you roll them between your thumb and index finger to make them smaller. Then you insert them in your ear, where they expand to block loud noises.

Silicone earplugs are rolled into a ball and carefully molded to fit over the external portion of the ear canal. This provides a tight comfortable fit for the wearer.

Flanged earplugs are the common earplugs used by musicians.  They come in many different styles.  Some look like a pyramid with three different levels to seal the ear, and some come custom formed to your ear.  Flanged earplugs can also be "hi-fi" meaning they have an accoustic transmission line with a attenuator on the end.  This allows the wearer to hear modified sounds of their choice.

For ear protection purposes, the preferred earplugs are foam.  They form to your ear blocking the loud noise of gun fire.  They are also the least expensive earplugs.
