Shooting Ear Muffs
Sore muscles, blistered feet and a sticky coating of sweat seemed to cover every inch of the body. These symptoms are tokens of glory at the end of a long hard day of a successful hunt. Hunters thrive on a challenge, and they aren’t afraid to get beat up a little when in pursuit of an animal. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that they get off that perfect shot that brings the beast down. With such a hardcore, rough-around-the-edges reputation, it’s no wonder many hunters choose to hunt without proper hearing protection. Unfortunately, without proper hearing protection, they are putting their hearing at risk - a sense that no hunter can live without.
Why Hearing Protection?
Many hunters, especially young hunters choose to opt out when it comes to protective hearing devices, and each has their own reason. Some hunters are simply convinced that hearing protection devices will interfere with their ability to hear everything they need to while on a hunt. Others don’t want to be slowed down by hearing protection, and others simply don’t want to be seen with anything over, around, or in their ears. Unfortunately the fact of the matter is that gunfire is damaging to your ears. Perhaps it is because the sound of a gunshot is so brief that many hunters underestimate the damaging effect it has on the ear. In reality gunfire from any size gun produces higher decibel levels than a rock concert, a jack hammer, or the engine of a 747. The effects are cumulative. After seasons of shooting or hunting, you may not even hear normal speech.
Shooting Ear Muffs
Sooting ear muffs were designed specifically for blocking the damaging sound of a gunshot. There are basically two types of shooting ear muffs, the basic sound blocking shooting ear muff, and the electronic or digitally enhanced variety of shooting ear muffs. The electronic shooting ear muffs include a microphone mounted in the headset which picks up ambient sounds and transmits them through a dynamic range compression circuit to earphones inside. This allows the hunter to hear sounds at ordinary - and even amplified - volumes that would usually be muffled by an ear muff. By virtue of the dynamic compression, shooting ear muffs will continue to compress louder sounds like gunfire to safer noise levels. One advantage of shooting ear muffs that many hunters have come to prefer is their ease of use. Shooting ear muffs are easily removed when the hunter is on the move, which would be quite inconvenient with ear plugs or in ear protective hearing devices since they would have to be removed and reinserted.
