Sound Amplification + Situational Awareness
BigShots amplifies surrounding low level sounds, such as voices and
prey noise, with up to 25dB of gain -- that's 5x normal volume. This
amplification is 100% digital, boosted by medical-grade circuitry that
ensures top-quality sound. You will hear better with the BigShots
electronic ear plugs in your ears than you would while wearing no ear
plugs at all. Additionally, BigShots solves many common problems with
in-ear amplification. The WhistleBlocker™ eliminates buzzing and
whistling sound artifacts, while the WindBlocker™ system reduces wind
noise outdoors. Special Speech Enhancement circuitry helps enhance
speech understanding even in difficult environments, while Layered
Noise Reduction reduces background noise, even in noisy industrial
environments. Four user-selectable listening modes are available:
Regular Noise Compression and Enhancement, Noise Compression and
Enhancement plus Telecoil input, Telecoil input only, and Mute. With a
tap on the function button on each earpiece, you can instantly change
the function to suit your situation. With BigShots' clear, enhanced
hearing capabilities, you can maintain the Situational Awareness
you need to stay safe and aware while shooting, hunting, or working in
dangerously loud environments.
Big Protection, Custom Comfort, Small Design
BigShots provide a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 29 for protection
in continuous noise environments up to 114 dB. This level of protection
is adequate for all outdoor hunting, and most outdoor range practice.
For all indoor practice and for outdoor practice with large caliber
weapons, dual protection is highly recommended. Even when you wear ear
muffs over your BigShots, the amplification provided by BigShots will
enable you to hear the range officer while your hearing remains fully
protected. BigShots Full Custom features earpieces converted from physical ear impressions, to digital impressions, to the final custom-molded product. Note: If you are seeking the benefits of BigShots, but are seeking a lower price, try the Universal Fit version here. The earpieces themselves are very
lightweight, so they won't fatigue your ears or trap heat the way
electronic shooter's earmuffs with comparable features can, especially
outdoors in the sun. With a fit custom-molded to fit your unique ears, there is no more comfortable hunter's hearing aid available on the market today. The BigShots low-profile, ITC (in the canal) design means they will not interfere with your favorite headgear or even full face respirators. And when the weather turns ugly on you, Hydroguard™ helps BigShots resist water*, sweat, wax, oil, and corrosion.
*BigShots are water resistant, not waterproof. Swimming or showering with your BigShots in the ear should be avoided. If your BigShots do get wet it is important to dry them before storing, otherwise the water, over time, can break down the nano coating that protects them. See User Manual for more information.
Neckloop Compatibility for Wireless Connectivity
BigShots can be used to hear your smart phone, two-way radio, music
player, or most any device that is compatible with a wire neckloop (also called a telecoil.) Using a neckloop, you can hear your external device right in your ears, so you never need to compromise your protection to hear your external device (neckloop not included.) With the push of a button, BigShots lets you improve the sound quality by turning off the sound amplification and compression
functions while taking a phone call. When done, simply push to restore amplification and compression, all without having to remove the device, so your hearing remains protected.
BigShots are highly recommended for daily wear for those with mild hearing loss, and for anyone who needs protection for hunting,
shooting, tactical surveillance, high noise workplaces, motorsports, home workshops, and other extreme noise situations.
