Etymotic GSP-15 GunSport PRO™ High-Definition Electronic Ear Plugs for Shooting and Constant Noise Protection
Etymotic GSP-15 Electronic Ear Plugs are a powerful new in-ear device that provides hearing protection from both hazardous gunshot blast noises and from loud continuous noises. These electronic ear plugs also deliver impressive amplification of safe, ambient noises such as game sounds and voices. Etymotic GSP-15 Electronic Ear Plugs provide many of the same benefits for hunters and shooters that you would get from a high-end electronic shooter's ear muff, packed into a low-profile, in-ear earplug design. The GSP-15 is ideal for anyone who needs situational awareness as well as protection from sudden loud impulse noises and constant loud background noise.
One of the most powerful features the GSP-15 provides is a cutting-edge Dual-Mode Switch that allows you to literally flip a switch to toggle between two different modes of electronic hearing protection. The result is an electronic shooter's ear plug that provides a perfect balance of blast hearing protection, protection from loud constant background noise, natural sound hearing, and hearing enhancement -- and with the Dual-Mode Switch, you can customize your hearing protection on the fly to suit your current situation.
The Etymotic GSP-15 offers two modes of hearing protection:
In Natural Hearing + Blast Protection (LO) Mode, when the sound levels around you are at a safe 60 dB or less, GSP-15 lets you hear normally as you would with the open ear. For sounds from 60 to 115 dB, GSP-15 reduces the volume by 15 dB. Louder blast or impulse noises from 115 to 140 dB are limited to 105 dB, and noises louder than 140 are reduced by 35 dB. (These numbers are approximate. See the chart to the right for more detail.) (See NOTE below)
In Hearing Enhancement + Blast Protection (HI) Mode, sounds below 60 dB such as voices and game sounds are amplified by 15dB, so you can hear sounds around you much better than you can with the open ear. The amplification tapers off from 60 to 90 dB, and from 90 to 115, you hear normally. Blast or impulse noises from 115 up to 140 dB are limited to about 115 dB, and sounds louder than 140 dB are reduced by about 35 dB. (These numbers are approximate. See the chart to the right for more detail.) (See NOTE below.)
NOTE: While the exposure limits appear to be quite high, at 105 and 115 dB, in LO and HI modes, respectively, it is anticipated that such exposures will be the result of impact noises such as gunfire that are of very short duration. Accordingly, GSP-15 does provide adequate protection for outdoor shooting practice and hunting with all but the highest caliber weapons. For intense practice with larger caliber weapons and for all indoor shooting, muffs should be worn over your GSP-15 ear plugs providing dual protection for optimum safety.
The Etymotic GSP-15 also uses ACCU·Technology: high-definition balanced-armature drivers, high-sensitivity microphones, and proprietary wide-dynamic-range compression K·AMP® signal processing truly put these electronic ear plugs in a class of their own.
Etymotic GSP-15 Electronic Ear Plugs are designed especially for hunters, professional shooters, gun sport enthusiasts, and guides and instructors. Whether you're a hard-core hunter, a competitive shooter, or just someone who enjoys spending weekends at the shooting range, the GSP-15 is an ideal choice for blast hearing protection, loud continuous noise reduction, improved situational awareness, and hearing amplification and enhancement.
GSP-15 Electronic Ear Plugs come with a good assortment of ACCU·Fit ear tips so you can get an effective seal and comfortable fit. One #10 hearing aid battery in each ear plug (included) provides about 300 hours of continuous use.
