Hunting Ear Protection is a Must For Fall
Posted by Hearing Healthcare of South Carolina on September 27, 2013
As a hunting enthusiast, you might say fall is your favorite season. Whether on an out-of-town trip or in your hometown, recreational hunting can take significant preparation. Protecting yourself by wearing blaze orange jackets, brush guard pants, insulated boots and shooting glasses is important but considering your hearing should also be top of mind. A single gunshot registering at 140 decibels is more than loud enough to permanently damage your ears! While hearing loss can occur in less than 15 minutes from unprotected exposure to some sounds, it can happen almost instantly from firearms.
Our digital SoundGear earplugs enhance sound better than traditional hearing protection products so you can hear the woodland wildlife and protect your hearing by triggering automatically to suppress any sounds 93 decibels or more. SoundGear is the smallest hearing protection device on the market (great if you don’t like big earmuff protectors) and the earplugs fit so snugly that they won’t interfere with holding, aiming or pointing your gun. The earplugs are easy to wear under a hat on a chilly day and comfortable enough to wear on daylong outings.
