Why electronic hearing protection?
Passive hearing protectors can be very effective against loud noise. However, passive hearing protectors are not selective in the amount of protection they provide. Passive protectors reduce both loud and quiet sounds by the same amount. This means that although the user is protected, he or she may miss out on everyday sounds such as speech and environmental sounds.
Electronic hearing protectors, on the other hand, use battery-powered electronic circuitry to sample ambient sounds in real time. Quiet sounds are allowed to pass through the earpiece, and very quiet sounds can be amplified to provide a “hearing boost” for the user. But when an incoming sound is too loud, then the electronic circuitry automatically reduces that sound to a safe level. Our Sound Guard™ electronic technology allows WildEar customers to hear game sounds and conversations normally, or even with an enhanced volume boost. But when sounds become dangerously loud, Sound Guard™ will keep your ears protected. We know you want to hear deer and turkey, not loud duck calls and gunfire.
WildEar electronic hearing protectors offer a variety of frequency and volume settings that allow you to tune your protectors in ways that work best for you. Settings are easily changeable for different environments and listening needs.
