Looking for some great hearing protection. I don’t like ear muffs, and my walkers batteries aren’t lasting. Any suggestions?

Most hearing aid providers can get you a set of molded ear plugs that will allow you to hear people talk but blocks noise above a certain level. My wife has a pair we got for her about 3 years ago and cost was about $200 if my memory serves. She used to wear plugs and muffs together but now she only uses the molded ones. If you live near Texarkana, GILLIAM HEARING is where they were purchased.

No need to over think this one. Go to tractor supply, walmart or any welding supply shop and pick up some of these. I keep one in my off road vehicle, in the truck box of my diesel, in my stands - let's just say I keep a few on hand. Comfortable - just put 'em around your neck and pull them up as needed.

I use EAR Inc in the ear protection and they work great. Little pricey but I'm happy.

I think that's what mine are. Like 'em, but they sure eat up those little batteries.

The best passive ones I ever had were on a steel neck/head band and were moldable foam in blue vinyl. Lost my last pair on a mule deer stalk and I don't believe they're made anymore. You get 'em in right and they really cut off the decibels. 'Must have been too expensive to manufacture. crying

I agree on the battery life. That is the only con though.

Last year at DSC Convention I had the guy from Trophy Ear fit me for the molded ear plugs. They have a passive device that blocks noise above a certain level. No batteries, they work great. You can hear a conversation, but gun shots are muffled. My wife got a pair this year. They inject a soft material into your ear, make a mold, build your ear plugs to fit. She had them in about two weeks.

Trophy Ear, about $150 as I recall.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

OP has a couple suppressors. 98% he's asking about hearing protection for shooting clays.

Flinger, I got these made at the last tournament that I shot in. Pretty swanky. Start at $85 and then you can spend all you want. Only time will tell how long they last.

It all depends on what your hearing is worth to you. Shooting as much as I have done thru time, I bought the ESP brand. Pricey yes but they do exactly what I want and the batteries last!! https://www.espamerica.com/shop/
