Walker’s Razor vs Howard Leight Impact Sports

with No Comments

I can’t stress enough how important ear-pro is. Use any legitimate hearing protection when firing your firearms. Electronic ear protection is a leap in functionality from simple ear plugs and standard earmuffs.

Bear in mind, electronic earmuffs but they can sometimes be advertised as electronic noise-canceling earmuffs. This should not be confused with Active Noise Canceling headphones used to listen to music (Bose, Sony, Beats, etc.) Those work by creating mirror sounds that cancel the offending background droning sounds like an air conditioner or jet engine. Those music headphones can NOT be used for gun sports.

Electronic Earmuffs work by passive noise reduction like non-electronic earmuffs; by simply blocking loud noises with the sound-deadening insulation. The electronics instead pipe in ambient sounds from outside the earmuffs, until a noise exceeds 82dB; they electronically shut-off the mics in an instant. Both reduce loud noises, reducing gunshot sounds (approx 155db) by about 22 decibels (dB) to approximately 133dB. Their Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is the amount of decibel noise reduction they offer.
