When preparing for the next hunt, whether the target is duck or deer, hunters must remember that investing in quality hearing protection is just as important as investing in quality hunting gear.
Permanent hearing loss can occur almost instantly from unprotected exposure to sounds generated by firearms. But with SoundGear™ from Starkey Hearing Technologies, hunters and shooters can focus on their sports instead of worrying about their hearing.
The SoundGear all-digital hearing protection products block loud, harmful noises while still allowing basic communication and sounds to be heard. This prevents hearing loss without inhibiting performance by providing the most advanced digital technology and sound enhancement in one device. The instruments are capable of enhancing sound eight times more than traditional hearing protection products.
“SoundGear is the ideal solution for hunters to protect their hearing from muzzle blasts,” said Jerry Ruzicka, President of Starkey Hearing Technologies. “The products not only protect users from harmful noises, but also help optimize communication, success and safety in the woods or on the range.”
The products are also useful for industrial workers, military personnel and police offers—anyone who frequently encounters high-decibel sounds. From the woods to the factory floor, hearing is vital for success and safety.
The SoundGear line includes three product options: instant fit in-the-canal, behind-the-ear and custom. The products’ noise reduction ratings range from 24 decibels (dB) to 26 dB, and outputs range from 80 dB to 95 dB. Users can select the best product for their needs, based on environment and price.
