Aside from following NRA’s three rules of firearms safety, responsible shooters must always protect their eyes and ears. One of the smallest and lightest ear-protection products available is SoundGear’s In-The-Canal digital hearing protection. The pint-size plugs feature a noise-reduction rating of 25 decibels (dBs) and weigh only 0.096 ozs. Noise suppression begins at 93 dBs, meaning any sound 93 dBs or higher is automatically cut off to eliminate potential hearing damage. The device also digitally processes sound, providing an amplification gain of 15 dBs. Included with the complete kit is a handy carrying case as well as ear canal adapters to fit anyone. Two packs of size 10 hearing aid batteries and a cleaning brush are also included. SoundGear backs its products with a one-year limited warranty, as well as a 30-day, risk-free trial period. A test sample exhibited crystal clear sound without the loss of sound orientation. Price $400. Contact: SoundGear; (800) 769-8605; soundgearhearing.com
