Why should I buy WildEar Hearing Boosters over other products?
WildEar has been designed and built with the latest digital technologies and input from hunting professionals, with the goal of resolving known problems in competitive designs. It has advantages in ease-of-use, simplified controls, field adjustment, durability under harsh field conditions and product quality. Special attention has also been given to achieving the absolute best fit in a custom product.
How can WildEar protect hearing and amplify sound at the same time?
The secret is a digital microprocessor. Its sound quality is extremely clean, clear and natural. Superior sound capture allows amplification well beyond your normal hearing ability. But a WildEar microprocessor is also extremely fast. It captures and compresses damaging sounds faster than those sounds can damage your hearing.
How well does WildEar protect hearing?
WildEar has one of the fastest signal microprocessors made, compressing damaging noises in as
little as 3 milliseconds. It activates every time it detects an incoming sound level above 90 decibels.
That’s still in the safe zone. It automatically compresses the sound to a safe level. A gun blast will
sound something like a cap gun in the distance.
How much better will I hear?
WildEar amplifies your hearing ability 4 to 5 times beyond the normal range. You’ll be able to detect
even the slightest game sounds off in the distance. And sounds, like a conversation with your
hunting partner, will pass through with heightened sound quality. You don’t get the plugged
sensation common with most other products that simply block your natural hearing.
How is it possible to get a custom fit by mail?
It’s really easy. First, order a WildEar Product by Internet or phone. WildEar will send you a “Fit-Kit”
in the mail. After reading the instructions & watching the “All day Comfort” video, you will be ready
to make your ear impressions. Once we receive your impressions in the Postage Paid “Fit-Kit” box.
We will promptly begin to build your custom-fit WildEars. You will receive your product in 7-10
What if I don’t feel comfortable doing my impressions at home?
Find a local Audiologist. Go to http://maps.google.com/ and enter Audiologist & your zip code. Schedule an appointment to have impressions made of your ears. They do this all the time. It costs less than $100. Then send the impressions back to us in the Postage Paid “Fit-Kit” box we mailed to you. You will receive your custom-fit WildEars in 7-10 business days.
How easy is it to use WildEar?
Our simple, one touch control of gain and channel selection is easy to change, without even removing the device from your ear. And there’s no need to carry a screwdriver in the field, as many other products require you to do.
What does sound compression mean?
Compression is the ability of the microprocessor to stop undesirable sounds of a specific level from becoming amplified. WildEar filters out all sounds from a 90 decibel level and higher.
How often do I need to change batteries?
Battery life depends on how often WildEar is used. Typical life expectancy can be 1-2 months of frequent product use, during a hunting season. WildEar will automatically produce a low battery warning tone, but will still function for a short period, allowing you to plan for replacement. We recommend carrying spare batteries in the field.
Where can I buy batteries?
Batteries can purchased on the WildEar website for a substantial discount over retail stores. They can also be found at many Walgreens® and Wal-Mart® stores.
If I already have hearing loss, will WildEar work for me?
If you have some hearing loss, you’ll need to find the settings that work best for you. If your hearing loss is severe, there may not be sufficient amplification available to offer you the best enjoyment for your hunt. If that’s the case, we suggest you consult with a certified Audiologist to have your hearing evaluated and properly corrected, with professionally fit hearing aids. WildEar should not be considered hearing aids and therefore should not be used day-to-day for that purpose. Unlike hearing aids, WildEar is not designed to compensate for a specific hearing loss.
