If you are an avid shooter, then you will know how important pro ears hearing protection and earplugs are in a shooting place. Helping to protect your hearing from loud gunshots is one of the most important things that one has to do while on a shooting range, but filtering out other sounds on the range can be difficult. Trying to figure out what your colleges and friends are saying often means that you have to leave the shooting are to somewhere quieter.
One item that gets around this very problem is a set of electronic ear muffs. These items full assist in preventing the wearer from being affected by loud noises by automatically muffling any loud noise that is about a certain decibel rating while still passing normal sounds in the immediate area directly to the ear muff wearer. This “magic” happens via technology – small microphones built into the set pass on the sound to internal speakers inside the muffs.
On other side benefit to using an electronic set such as these it that they often feature 3.5mm headphone jacks on the side of the cans too, so that mp3 players, Creative Zens, or iPods can be plugged in as well. Obviously you wouldn’t want to crank up the volume too loud on these.
If you are after a good beginner’s entry level model, try the Howard Leight R-01526 model for sale at Amazon (I found it while looking for a Weber grill cover for my back yard). It comes in cheaper than rival models, but it has a lot of features for the low price. If you are looking for a good solid model to try out then this is it.
Perhaps the only downside to electronic muffs is that you may have to recharge the batteries on them occasionally, but for the features they offer they are definitely an improvement over conventional models. The ability to clearly hear what is going on around you definitely adds a certain something to any shooting experience, so why not try out electronic ear muffs today?
