If you’ve never used electronic ear defenders before, you’ll be impressed by the 3M Peltor Sportac Electronic Ear Defenders. You can clearly hear what’s going on around you, but as soon as there’s a loud sound the ear defenders instantly reduce it, preventing damage to your ears.
Electronic ear defenders amplify quiet noises, meaning you can hear birds and beaters better than without them on if you’re pheasant shooting. They’re also great for clay pigeon shooting and other shooting sports.
When using in the winter they have the added benefit of keeping your ears warm!
The 3M Peltor Sportac Electronic Ear Defenders are some of the best rated and most popular electronic ear defenders in the UK, and with good reason. They’re extremely effective at reducing harmfully loud noises while amplifying quiet sounds.
The only real drawback is that they’re not completely waterproof, so if you use them in heavy rain they might get damaged.
If you’d rather buy some inexpensive passive ear defenders rather than these somewhat expensive electronic ear defenders, you should consider the Peltor Optime III Headband Ear Defenders. These have a high SNR rating of 35 dB, which means they can deal with very loud sounds including gunshot, aircraft and industrial machinery.
