I want a set of these

Prosounds via Indiegogo is funding the initial manufacturing and marketing of these:

This is hearing protection (30 db) and enhancement (they claim “6X” which I suspect means about 8 db) that fits in your ear. The difficulty of getting a good check weld on your rifle will just go away but you can still hear and have good sound protection. You can wear whatever hat you want with them and you can carry them in a small pocket wherever you go.

  1. 3M (aka Peltor) has a similar product called LEP 100. Pricing is … well… 3M/Peltor level.

    I’m always a bit wary of earplugs only for rifle. I’ve read that vibrations transmitted through the earlobe/cartilage (without earmuffs) can still lead to damage.

    But I shoot mostly in the worst conditions possible: SBR with muzzle breaks + indoor/underground with no sound dampening material on walls. Which makes me biased towards heavy attenuation …

    • Would that be Peltor TEP-100?

      Available from Amazon for under $250 with coupon.
      (FYI, here in Oz, they are over AUD$600. That’s, roughly, USD$450.)

  2. I have a set of the Peltors – bought them at a great discount from Enviro Safety Supply. I haven’t yet shot with them, but I have worn them around the property and the amplification of critter sounds is pretty decent. Nice thing about the 3M/Peltors is that they are rechargeable, in their case, from either a couple of on-board AA batteries or plugged into a USB port.

    They have a bit of that raspy digital sound, but would still be of benefit for hunting (or for locating where someone is sneaking around your house at night.) I wish I had them when I was pig hunting in Texas a few years back, shooting from an elevated blind constructed of sheet metal – regular plugs muffled oncoming hog noise, and muffs were pretty constricting.

    The Walker Game Ear plugs have been around for years, but their prices are pretty astronomical.

    I also have a set of the muff-style hearing protectors on order from ProSounds through a Kickstarter project. Again, these are marketed as being an advanced ear pro, along the lines of a Peltor (which I already have) but for less expense.

  3. Looks interesting.

    I haven’t worn any protection in the field while hunting because it destroys almost all perception of direction. How is the state of the art going on that front? I don’t know. Range shooters may not care a whit, but once you’re out in the field, IT MATTERS.

    They don’t say in the press release where these are being made. I was never a “Rah rah, America” shopper, but I don’t like supporting communist salve masters either.

    • I too don’t wish to feed the dragon, so I asked them. Parts are sourced in “Asia” (no details but you can guess) and assembled in Utah.

      • Try to find these types of parts manufacturers in America, I did a few years ago for a project and had no luck. My project didn’t get off the ground, but it was interesting to me that relatively small run miniature electronics is essentially all Asian sourced now.

    • The Walker’s Game Ear plugs were designed for hunting, and I believe are US sourced, especially given their price. They’ve been around for years and years.

  4. There have been a number of active, in-ear hearing protection crowdfunding attempts (and successes) of late.

    I wonder why.

  5. I’ve got a set of the etymotic gunsports that I love. They’ve held up in manufacturing settings as well as on the firing line and in the field. I even wear them walking the dogs. They are a bit spendy though.
