There are certain pieces of gear that make life a lot more enjoyable for a shooter. Having a good set of electronic ears means you’re not missing any important commands on the firing line, and you don’t have to take off your muffs to hear the instructor.

The way electronic hearing works is that when the noise level outside is below a certain decibel level you can hear normally as if you’re having a regular conversation with the person next to you. In other words, if you’re on the firing line and the instructor starts talking, you don’t have to take off the earmuffs in order to clearly hear what he’s saying. This is accomplished due to the microphones and amplifiers inside the electronic ears. However, when the noise crosses a certain decibel level, such as at the sound of a gunshot, the electronic ears either shut off or compress the sound and your hearing is protected from the loud noise.
