Hunters and shooters spend a lot of time around guns. As a result they know just how important it is to protect their hearing. The average gunshot noise is around 140 decibels (db). This is well above the 85db safe limit for hearing and into the range where immediate hearing damage can occur. Because of this, if you are going to be around guns, whether shooting or not, hearing protection needs to be a priority. At the same time, being able to hear sounds around you is also critical while shooting. If you are on a range you need to be able to hear the voices of those around you in

Those of us who work in challenging noise environments know how important it is to protect our hearing. Any exposure to sounds over 85 decibels (db) can cause hearing loss, and regular exposure can quickly lead to a noticeable decrease in the ability to hear.

In the world of Special Operations performance is everything. You have to demand the best of every piece of equipment you use to ensure you can operate at peak performance. This holds true of hearing protection and communications equipment just the same as it does of a gun. Special operations rely on teamwork and coordination to pull off high risk, critical missions. Radio communications in real time are critical to success. That’s why United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has fielded the Peltor Comtac III. It’s a set of electronic earmuffs that also integrate a microphone for radio communications. Let’s take a closer look at what makes the Comtac III’s special.

Hunters and shooters know that they must take care of their hearing while they are using their firearms. A 12-guage shotgun being fired is 156 decibels (db), while anything over 85 db can cause hearing damage. It’s no wonder that shooters take their hearing protection so seriously. The down side to hearing protection is that it doesn’t just block out the loud crack of a gunshot, it also blocks out non-harmful sounds such as voices. Fortunately, electronic hearing protection has been developed to fill this gap. Electronic hearing protection uses external microphones to pick up non-harmful noises and then relay them to speakers inside the headset. The result is that you

Electronic hearing protection has become increasingly popular in recent years. Advances in technology have allowed users to protect their hearing, while still being able to interact with those around them. Any noise that is above 85 decibels (db) is harmful to your hearing. For reference, a conversation is typically around 60 db and a concert can be over 100 db. Which is why your ears are typically ringing while driving home from watching your favorite rock band. Electronic hearing protection works by amplifying noises that are not loud enough to be dangerous to our hearing, while continuing to muffle those that are.  This feature can be extremely valuable to those working
