Noise-induced hearing damage, once suffered, is irreversible. And for those who spend much time around firearms, loud and sudden noises are a given, which makes quality hearing protection essential. The Pro Ears Pro 300 uses Dynamic Level Sound Compression technology to instantly compress all noises over the 70 dB threshold to a safe level while simultaneously amplifying low-pressure sounds to 70 dBs. As a result, the user is able to hear everything, including conversation, while still being protected from abrupt, high-volume sounds—such as a discharging firearm. Bearing a Noise Reduction Rating of 26 dBs, the Pro 300’s comfortable leather ear cushions are filled with viscoelastic foam to ensure optimal sound attenuation. Each cup features an independent volume control, and utilizing two N batteries per cup, should give users approximately 250 hours of continuous use. The U.S.-made Pro Ears Pro 300 weighs 9 ozs. and comes with a three-year limited warranty. Price: $230.
