|Walker's XCEL 500BT Digital Muffs|
Walker's XCEL 500BT Digital Electronic Muffs provide dynamic suppression of hazardous noise while amplifying safe ambient sounds, both protecting and enhancing your hearing. Designed for hunters and shooters, the XCEL's advanced digital circuitry ensures blast noise is blocked while voices stay clear and intelligible. Bleeding-edge Variable Dynamic Sound Suppression responds to your auditory environment in different ways to deliver agile noise compression precisely when it's needed. Hi gain omni-directional mics pick up detailed external noise, amplifying it in your choice of four distinct listening modes, enabling situational awareness in challenging conditions. Bluetooth connectivity even lets you sync the 500BT to your smart phone for calling and music listening. With so many powerful features packed into their revolutionary ergonomic design, Walker's XCEL 500BT Electronic Ear Muffs leverage top-notch features to give you the tactical edge - all while defending you from hearing damage.
Variable Dynamic Sound Suppression
The XCEL 500BT features Walker's most cutting-edge sound compression technology, Variable Dynamic Sound Suppression. Driven by an advanced digital chipset, the ear muffs actively respond to your auditory environment to deliver the perfect sound compression to suit your surroundings. Unlike regular active sound suppression, which only reacts to hazardous noise in one way, this new variable system responds intelligently to the noise intensity and sound duration to provide agile, optimized hearing protection for every situation. This is a smart, innovative feature that really sets the XCEL 500BT apart from the competition.
Bluetooth for Music and Calling
With Bluetooth connectivity, the XCEL 500BT lets you stay in touch and stream your favorite audio from your smart phone while keeping your hearing protected. Enjoy your favorite music or podcasts, or even take calls, all without needing to remove your ear muffs. The ability to hear incoming calls and notification alerts lets you stay connected, even in the noisiest environments. There is no need to be cut off from the world if you don't want to be. Thanks to the XCEL 500BT with Bluetooth, you can enjoy the freedom to move, shoot, talk and listen hands-free, with no wires to get in the way - all while keeping your ears secure.
Enhanced Hearing with Four Listening Modes
The best electronic ear muffs don't just protect your ears from damage: they also enhance your hearing. Wearing any modern electronic ear muff, you can hear far better than you could with your naked ears alone. And the XCEL pushes that envelope even further, allowing you to choose from four different listening modes:
This hearing protector's sound amplification is versatile and powerful. The XCEL's hi gain omni-directional mics provide high-quality directional sound, so you stay aware of your surroundings and ready to react at all times. Selectable wind noise reduction ensures the sound you hear remains reliable, even in demanding environments. And because you have your choice of listening modes, you can optimize your hearing enhancement to perfectly suit your surroundings. A voice confirmation informs you which setting you're currently on, so you can switch modes to adapt quickly and confidently.
- Universal - General sound amplification for all purposes
- Speech Clarity - Hear voices clearly and enhance verbal communication
- High Frequency - Hear steel target impact at long distances
- Power Boost - Strong amplification across all ranges
Revolutionary Design: Turn Tradition Upside Down
Walker's XCEL hearing protectors turn the traditional electronic ear muff design on its head - literally. With the microphones, circuitry, controls, and even the batteries moved out of their traditional placement in the ear cups and into the redesigned headband instead, these electronic muffs have had their weight radically redistributed upwards. The result is reduced neck fatigue and superb balance. The XCEL wears more naturally and feels lighter than other ear muffs, significantly enhancing both comfort and mobility. And without the internal electronics to fill them up, the ear cups have fewer holes and more interior air space, dramatically improving their ability to block out hazardous noise.
Every aspect of these XCEL ear muffs is built for performance and durability. The headband is not only redesigned to hold the essential components, but it also provides improved ergonomic comfort, too. Freed from carrying the electronics, the ear cups can be dedicated solely to delivering superior protection and comfort. Everything about this design is smart, right down to thoughtful details such as the rubber bumpers on the bottom of each earcup.
Between the advanced digital noise suppression and the aggressively innovative physical design, Walker's XCEL line truly raises the bar for what an electronic ear muff for hunters and shooters should be.
Powered by 2x AAA batteries (included). A low battery warning alerts you when power is low. The programmable auto-shutoff feature with 2/4/6 hour settings preserves battery life.
