Whenever a group of grizzled, old shooters, hunters, cops or military men get together, they’re usually not too hard spot. Or should I say, hear … You know where I’m going. They all seem to be yelling at each other as they talk, repeating themselves or simply nodding, repeating, “Yep … yep … you don’t say …”
Welcome to the “hard of hearing world” where men exposed to loud noises now only hear unintelligible, garbled words that make no sense. When they were being exposed to decibel deafening noises hearing protection was unheard of — or ignored. Once hearing is lost, it’s gone forever …
It Doesn’t Have To Be …
Today, we know how damaging just a single exposure to loud noises can be. Hearing loss is permanent; there’s no getting it back. Protect what you want to hear and wear hearing protection when you know you’ll be exposed to loud noises, whether it’s gunfire, stock car races or even rock concerts.

The folks at Peltor have stepped up to the plate with some great hearing savers. The Peltor Sport Tactical 500 Electronic Hearing Protector has what it takes to preserve your hearing. Rated for 26 NRR, the hearing protectors feature proprietary 3M SMART technology that suppresses damaging gunshot reports above 82 decibels in addition to amplifying low-level sounds.
The Peltor Sport Tactical Hearing Protectors are ideal for indoor/outdoor shooters. Clear Voice Tracking seeks voices by filtering out background noise to make speech sounds more intelligible — a must for clearly hearing range commands for firearm safety.
