Over time both professional and recreational shooters are moving away from traditional earmuff designs in favor of sound management earbuds. These earbuds are not only more comfortable to wear for many shooters, but they also offer a much more lightweight option that doesn’t take up as much space in the range bag or get in the way of a solid cheek weld on a rifle. Walker’s has just announced the release of their new ATACS Sport Earbuds that deliver state-of-the-art performance for serious shooters and claim to excel in comfort and operational convenience.

Walker’s Introduces The New ATACS Sport Earbuds
Walker’s ATACS Sport Earbuds Specifications:
- Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity
- Compatible with Walker’s LINK app
- 4 program settings: universal, clear voice, power boost, high frequency boost
- 7.5 hours battery life
- Digital sound quality
- Low noise frequency tuned for sound clarity
- Sound activated compression (SAC)

The ATACS Sport Earbuds include some of the latest and greatest sound suppression and enhancement technology and best of all they feature ear hooks that will help out those who don’t have specifically shaped ears. The ATACS Sport Earbuds feature both ear hooks, several sizes of foam ear tips, and a convenient neck retention strap that ties the entire system together and makes the ATACS earbuds more comfortable to wear even when you’re moving around a lot (this retention system also prevents you from losing the earbuds).
The 7.5-hour battery life is further aided by the user-selectable auto shutoff times. The ATACS Sport Earbuds will also pair with Walker’s LINK 2.0 App which provides you with remote control access to each of the ATACS listening modes (universal, clear, voice, power boost, and high-frequency boost), battery level, ambient mute, and volume control. At the time of writing, no price point or release date has been mentioned by Walker’s for the ATACS earbuds. These earbuds will be the fourth addition to Walker’s existing lineup of neckband-style earbuds for shooters.
