ELECTRONIC EARPLUGS MAKE SENSE FOR FIELD USE
I don’t like to fire a gun ever without proper hearing protection. That creates a problem when I’m hunting because I want to be alert to the sound of approaching game. And when an animal arrives, I can’t afford the time or additional motion of putting hearing protection in place before taking a shot.
Etymotic GunSport Pro electronic earplugs provide a solution. They’re more compact than large electronic muffs and are excellent for use afield or at the range. They have noise reduction rating of 25 decibels.
Each earplug has a tiny switch on the outside. Turn the switch up and you can hear surrounding sound normally, but with protection from loud blasts. Turn the switch down and surrounding sound is amplified up to five times, allowing you to hear approaching game animals or important range commands.
Included in the kit are an assortment of removable plugs of different size and configurations to ensure you have a good fit to your ears.
The MSRP on these earplugs is $299, a good investment in protecting your hearing.
