Hearing protection: it’s a big deal in any kind of shooting endeavor. For many years it’s been well-known that too many dBs battering your eardrums can cause permanent damage, including hearing loss and tinnitus. Suppressors can help, but if you’re going to the range then quality ear pro is absolutely a must-have. While simple foam buds or basic over-the-ear muffs typically work fine, some shooters prefer the added benefits offered by electronic options. Some models include smart technology that will amplify quieter sounds like speech, while dampening loud noise like gunshots. Others can fold in bluetooth capabilities, for communication purposes or to pipe in some music. With a July 23rd press release, the Michigan-based hearing defenders at Pro Ears have announced pre-order availability for a new electronic in-ear option: the Stealth Elite earbuds. The release reads as follows.
Grawn, MI – Pro Ears’ new Stealth Elite Bluetooth Electronic Ear Buds are designed for the avid adventurer. The sleek new design and improved ergonomic options provide hi-fidelity sound for music, noise protection, and hearing enhancement while providing Pro Ears’ signature noise cancelling technology. The new Stealth Elite ear buds are ideal for shooting, cycling, flying, hunting, jogging, sporting events, concerts, and industrial applications. The user can maintain situational awareness and safety in noisy environments while enjoying music or talking on the phone.
