Hear voices, alarms, and quiet sounds clearly, but don't be deafened by loud sounds! The shooter's favourite.
These earmuffs use normal (passive) sound absorption/blocking to protect you from loud sounds. But they add microphones which send quiet sounds (such as voices) to your ears in clear, directional, stereo. During a loud noise, the electronics shut down and your hearing is protected. Battery life is tremendously long, and if your batteries do run out, you're still protected from loud noises (unlike "active noise-cancelling" earphones). You can even plug in an MP3 player or AM/FM radio, for comfortable & safe listening.
The Howard Leight Impact Sport is designed to enhance low-level sound. The Impact Sport employs built-in microphones that amplify range commands and other important ambient sounds. Users enjoy full, clear directional sound in stereo. For protection, the Impact Sport actively listens and automatically shuts off amplification whenever harmful sound levels are reached. The earmuffs effectively block any noise, continuous or impulse, of 82dB or higher. As a low energy-consuming earmuff, the Impact Sport maintains a battery life of up to 350 hours. The automatic 4-hour shut-off feature helps to prevent excessive battery loss in the event the earmuff is not turned off.
