New Caldwell E-Max Electronic Hearing protection Compared to My Old Ones
The built-in microphones amplify low level sounds such as a mate chatting or range commands - but cut-out sharply when there is any loud noise - I actually noticed that they cut-out when I was racking the slide on my Glock, so they are sensitive and effective. - Plus they have a bright red LED on the right side housing that shows everyone you are a modern electronicified man.
They take two AA batteries and are claimed to reduce noise levels by 25 decibels.
Bought from North Auckland 'Workshop Innovations Ltd' online - I was impressed by their quick and helpful service and their wide range of shooting stuff in stock. - Have a look at workshopinnovation.co.nz
Note: You do NOT want to get 'Menieres' in your old age - or any other bloody age either! - It effects your inner ear by damaging your balance organ, making you deaf - but gives you continual noises in your head (tinnitus) and you get horrible attacks of vertigo with the room spinning - while you fall-over and your stomach contents leave home at speed (repeatedly) .. Nice.
