Retail price is ?179.99. Tactical sport hearing protector provides electronics that perform at lightning speed and protect the user's hearing from loud impulse noises. The system reacts so gently that in most cases, you will never even hear the cut-off when the protector is activated. Generous ear cups are ergonomically designed for comfort and positive sealing.Uniquely give shooters protection from dangerous gunfire noise, along with the distortion-free amplification of low level sounds such as range commands and conversation. Tactical hearing protectors combine the high performance of our passive muff with advanced electronics. Wearers can hear low level sounds up to three times louder than when wearing conventional protectors, but when dangerous noises occur the electronic "valve" closes to reduce the noise. New active-volume hearing protector from Peltor eliminates harmful noise so fast you don't even notice it.The Peltor SportTac is a new active-volume hearing protector for hunters and marksmen. With new digital technology, the hearing protector has sound reproduction and a sense of direction that are as close to nature as humanly possible. But best of all is the reaction speed. You don't even notice when the hearing protector blocks out harmful noise.The active-volume function adjusts smoothly, ensuring the user very pleasant sound reproduction and less irritation. The digital sound circuit eliminates the sharp sound clip that is typical for most active-volume hearing protectors on the market. Many people find that sound unpleasant and disturbing. The new electronics in the Peltor SportTac react instantaneously, protecting the hearing from loud impulse noises. But it does so softly, so that the hunter or marksman rarely even hears the clip as the protection is activated.The new hearing protectors were designed for extra comfort during long hunts that last all day.
-Compatible with the Peltor gel ear seals.
-Second set of safety orange ear cups included.
-Can be configured to offer superior seal and comfort.
-Batteries are easy to change
-Gel ear seal cost extra.
-The cable to route audio/comms is proprietary and an additional expense.
Put simply one can configure these units to offer the comfort and more expensive ear pro. But that comfort is going to add about 70-80% to the cost of the product. If you want superior out of the box performance then you are going to spend more money. However if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive offerings these might do it for you. And if you simply want something cheap, good, and functional out of the box then the Peltor Tactical 100s would probably be a better choice.
I can talk to people 20 feet away at the rifle range while shooting, hear them better than without the headphones, and it still muffles the gun shots down to a safe level.
Batteries last nearly forever. Use it 5 hours a day, listening to music, changed them after months...
The super human hearing though is neat. You can hear your boss through his door not just talking quietly, but breathing while sitting in the next room.
Hear a squirrel chew a nut at 40 feet away and with your eyes closed be able to exactly point to it by ears alone.
But 3M, that audio jack is beyond stupid and probably costs you sales. Buy a Bluetooth dongle for $10 and rubber band it to the side and now you have the several hundred dollar version. Then wireless music, phone answering, etc... Again, 3M, totally missing the party here.
The pros and cons:
Pros: Very comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, excellent pass through for normal conversations even with background noise, and excellent build quality.
Cons: Like most any electronic hearing protectors, the Peltor system can and will run through batteries quickly in some range situations. I recently attended a large class 3 shoot and with the amount of very loud gunfire going off all around me the system drained the battery within 30 minutes. This is typical with most all electronic hearing protection in these situations and doesn't happen during normal range time usage. Not a game stopper by any means but worth mentioning.
The Peltor hearing protection system is well known throughout the shooting community and is definitely the better choice over other cheaper solutions. It's worth every penny especially when it comes to protecting your hearing.
These muffs would make a fantastic addition to a hunters gun case. Once at full volume, I can easily hear birds, squirrels, etc from 40 yards as they just walk around the ground and trees. I tested the volume with another person, and at full volume I could hear them (VERY lightly) talking to me from 70 or so yards. If they spoke up in a loud voice or yelled my name from the same distance, it was clear as day. Pop off a few shots and you'll be able to hear anyone talking to you within a half second of the gun shot. Highly recommended.
