Over long shooting sessions with louder firearms, the extra attenuation can help make the Peltor SportTac a more comfortable choice. However, this extra attenuation comes at the cost of being a bit bulkier. Price

state that they were designed specifically with hunters and marksmen in mind. The unique sound circuitry that stops the abrupt noise cut-off is certainly a nice feature.If you want to hear quieter sounds around you (speech etc.), electronic ear defenders are a better choice as they amplify these sounds and play them through small speakers in the ear cups. How much do shooting ear defenders cost?

In this article, we’ll be weighing up the differences between them so that you can choose the pair that’s right for you. These impressive ear protectors have been dubbed a ‘supermuff’ and were developed for use in extremely noisy environments. The protection is based on new technology with a double casing that minimises resonance. This results in maximum high-frequency muffing so you can be safe in the knowledge that your hearing will be sufficiently protected. BUY NOW 4.

According to NoiseHelp.com, you can expose yourself to sounds of 127 dB for 1 second without causing permanent damage, but at 140 dB immediate nerve damage can occur, so you shouldn’t expose yourself to this level of noise for even an instant. They don’t offer more hearing protection than regular ‘passive’ ear defenders, but they amplify quieter sounds such as conversation and sounds of birds and wildlife, which is very useful when shooting.


Thankfully we’re all much more aware of the need to protect ourself today because a shoot day can be very noisy. Most 12-bore gunshots produce a sound of around 150 to 160 decibels (db), while a .30-06 rifle with a 24in barrel produces around the same. Consistent exposure to sounds of more than 95db is bad, and noises of more than 120db can cause permanent damage to your hearing in seconds. Read our piece on why you should always wear ear defenders when shooting.

The 3M Peltor SportTac Electronic Ear Defenders are designed for shooting and hunting where you need to be able to hear quiet noises while protecting your hearing from the loud sound of gunshot. A. The Peltor Sporttac has a foldable headband which reduces the size of the headset dramatically making it very portable. We highly recommend that firearms enthusiasts never remove their hearing protection when around firearms. If you still need to be able to hear, electronic ear defenders are a great choice. What are Electronic Ear Defenders? Being a rifle shooter meant I could be a little more generous with the actual size of the defenders, and given my positive experiences of the use of Peltor units, I naturally looked there first... and last. Peltor’s SportTacs are a great unit that I still wear for hunting, but I wanted to go above 30dB of SNR. Health and safety guidelines state that from 100-105dB, 30+ is recommended, and you can see where this is going; we are noisy buggers, us shooters. Thankfully, out in the open, we don’t get too much reflection of sound, and it is mainly produced in intermittent bangs, rather than continuous noise, but given that I was getting a slight ringing noise in my ears every now and again, and a very slight continuous hiss, it was clear that damage was being done.

Mark Heath, Instruction Manager at West London Shooting School agreed: “When teaching I prefer electronic ear defenders normally Peltor Sportac, these give excellent protection and enable conversation to continue with clients. When game shooting I will often wear the Sportacs. Given that I am around shooting most day of the week I consider it important to protect and to wear appropriate protection to try and preserve my hearing. Some of our older clients who didn’t wear protection in their early shooting years are invariably suffering from some hearing loss.” The sound on these is amplified up to ten times so you will actually hear better, although your hearing will be protected at the same time. Clever. Earshot Communications is authorised to carry out 3M Peltor repairs and uses only the manufacturer's genuine parts for the repairs.

The electronic components of the defenders don’t offer your ears any additional protection, but they make the shooting or hunting experience much better as you can hear what’s going on around you. In addition some ear defenders have built-in two way communication systems so you can listen and speak to your fellow shooters. This is particularly useful for shoot captains who want to talk to beaters or keepers. MSA are a company with a great reputation for their hearing protection products. Their ear defenders are trusted by hobbyist shooters and soldiers alike. Almost all firearms produce a noise of over 140 decibels (dB), which is enough to cause long-term hearing damage. We have been repairing 3M Peltor products for almost 30 years and have industry leading experiencing in the repair of these items.Shooting noise is intermittent rather than constant, so it’s less damaging to the hearing than constant noise of the same volume would be. It’s a bit like how you can put your hand on a hot radiator for a second without it hurting too much, but leaving it there would cause a burn.
