Electronic Ear Plugs are one of the newest types of hearing protection available. Most ear plugs are non-electronic (sometimes called "passive") -- foam plugs, reusables, moldable wax and silicone, for instance. While passive ear plugs can do an excellent job of blocking noise, some applications such as range shooting, hunting, playing in a band, and teaching a music program can benefit from a whole lot more than simple protection from noise. That's where electronic ear plugs come in.
The most important features of these electronic ear plugs:
Smart Protection - Protection that changes as your ambient sound environment changes. Electronic ear plugs can "listen" to the sounds around you, provide automatic protection from sudden impact noises (such as gunshots or cymbal crashes), or even slowly turn up a lower NRR of protection in response to background noise gradually increasing to a hazardous level. Electronic ear plugs help you get exactly the protection you need from one moment to the next, without you ever needing to remove or fiddle with your ear plugs.
Hearing Clarity and Amplification - Hear better while wearing ear plugs! Our electronic ear plugs all provide two modes for enhanced auditory perception. Natural hearing mode allows the user to hear what's going on around her just as if she were not wearing ear plugs at all (until a dangerous sound occurs). Amplification mode actually makes safe sounds such as voices, game sound, your range instructor's commands, or bird song from that tree across the field louder, playing the amplified sounds through tiny speakers in your ears. The smart hearing protection only kicks in to block noise when it's needed.
Electronic ear plugs are a superior choice for any situation in which you need hearing protection AND situational awareness (the ability to hear what's going on around you - absolutely critical when using firearms or working around heavy machinery!). That makes electronic plugs particularly excellent for hunters and shooters in the range or out in the field, for music educators and musicians of all ages, and for industrial workers both on the factory floor and operating heavy machinery. The excellent situational awareness these plugs provide, combined with their smart hearing protection, make electronic ear plugs some of the best hearing all-around safety equipment available today. Electronic ear plugs really are in a class of their own.
In-ear hunting hearing aids are available in behind the ear or in the canal models. These devices amplify sound so you can hear better, but they automatically limit the volume to a safe level when a dangerously loud sound comes in contact.
Maintain communications in high-noise environments without ever having to remove your hearing protection, for superior all-around safety and situational awareness. Choose from face-to-face, two-way radio, or bluetooth communications capabilities to get the hearing protection you need while facilitating your critical communications clearly, even in the noisiest of industrial settings. Specially designed with businesses and industrial workers in mind.
These innovative ear plugs for musicians "listen" to your auditory environment and adjust the amount of hearing protection you receive from moment to moment automatically, allowing you to protect your ears from hazardous noises without diminishing your ability to clearly hear the rest of the music.
Although we do not sell medical hearing aids, a number of the products we sell call for treatment as if they were regular hearing aids. Accordingly, we carry a number of hearing aid accessories to keep your in-ear devices clean and dry between uses.
