Pro Ears Hearing Protection Offers Superior Performance
Charles Ricci Executive Vice President of new sponsor Pro Ears conducted a presentation about hearing loss, a subject that is very near and dear to many Team One Instructors. Charles covered subjects such as decibel exposure guidelines, Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and steady state and impulse noise examples.
Charles then covered the benefits of Pro Ears and what sets them apart from other devices. Only Pro Ears feature ‘DLSC™’ Dynamic Level Sound Compression Technology. This superior technology allows the wearer to hear every sound even during high volume noise spikes. ‘DLSC’ works by instantly ‘compressing’ all noises over the 70 dB threshold by 50% to a safe level while amplifying all sounds below that to 70 dB. The result is the wearer will hear everything, including conversation, while simultaneously being protected from dangerous, high volume sounds.
Team One Instructors will use Pro Ears Pro-Tac Plus Gold electronic earmuffs
All Team One Instructors were issued a pair of Pro-Tac Plus Gold electronic earmuffs. We then spent 4 hours on the range and everyone was impressed on how this technology worked. We did not have the tininess of other electronic hearing protection many of us have used in the past. Normal conversations were able to take place while shooting was being conducted.
Team One Firearms Instructors are using Pro Ears Pro Tac Plus Gold Electronic earmuffs and we now have extra Pro-Ears earmuffs available for students to use during training. The Pro Ears presentation will improve how Team One conducts instruction on the hearing protection.
