Shooters Should Take the Necessary Precautions to Protect their Ears Hearing is important to all, and only once you lose the ability, or enjoy only limited hearing, you realize how important it is. Fortunately most people are made aware of this early on, and therefore those who are often exposed to high levels of noise, such as employees that work, for example, in very noisy conditions, are told to try and protect their ears from noise, or to at least take enough breaks to help them neutralize the worst effects. Problems with hearing is often associated with very loud sounds and constant high levels of noise – also with extremes such as loud gun fire on the practice range, or while you’re out hunting. People are much aware of the dangers and adverse effects of loud gun fire today than they were in the past: more and more research has made it clear that such loud noises are indeed detrimental to one’s ability to enjoy ongoing good hearing. In recent years more people than ever before – hunters and shooters and others that are exposed to unnaturally loud sound on a constant basis - are looking at what options they have to protect their ears and therefore their hearing. Most people also understand that hearing loss is often a gradual process, and therefore they appreciate the information to help them hearing protection for shooting in order to enjoy this ability for many years. Therefore more and


more hunters and shooters are looking at the different hearing protection devices and aids such as, for example, sound muffling plugs for the ears, and also earmuffs.

These devices are often meticulously designed and manufactured to ensure harsh sounds are blocked out when guns are fired. The most popular and best known of these are the ear muffs which many hunters and shooters have used for a number of years, and more recently electronic, digitally enabled plugs for the ears. They are manufactured to protect the user’s ears against loud harmful noise while still allowing normal sound at the acceptable dB levels through – sounds such as animal movement in the bush, the sounds of birds, and normal conversation with others in the group that you’re hunting with. This, of course, is a great stride forward in helping hunters and shooters to protect their hearing while at the same time being able to hear those sounds which will not harm their ears and hearing ability.


This type of device is not simply bought over the counter like some other devices can be acquired. They are mostly bespoke devices, plugs custom made and molded to fit the exact contours of the user’s ears. The process is fairly easy and straight forward if you approach a good company or supplier. They will make molds of your ears and then go ahead and manufacture them. They may indeed allow you to get the impressions done by an independent audiologist and still go ahead and manufacture them for you. Either way, you are assured of a superior, sought-after product that will offer you maximum protection against loud noise. Of course excessive noise and loud sounds can cause all sorts of problems with one’s hearing if it does not lead to total deafness. Think of examples such as ringing in the ears, clicking sounds that won’t go away, or roaring and pulsing. These sounds can go on for a long time, and there is every chance that if you expose your ears to loud sounds, you have found the cause. Therefore hunters and shooters – and those that work in noisy environments where they are exposed to loud sounds – wear the protective gear on or in their ears. It is the best way to help you protect your hearing. There are some good companies out there that market these devices. They advertise in the local press – or on the internet. With some research you will find the best ones quickly.
