PRO EARS are the worlds most advanced electronic ear and hearing protection for shooting, hunting, and industrial applications. Their technologically advanced designs are among the finest and safest in the industry. When safety is at the top of your list PRO EARS are the only real option for ear and hearing protection… regardless of the shooting environment or venue.
The Gold Series Advantage is the balance achieved between comfort, noise attenuation and purity of sound. No compromises. No excuses.
Real audiophiles understand that for purity of sound an analog sound system is superior to a digital sound system, however, digital systems can correct imperfections or enhance and modify sound better than analog systems. Most active hearing protectors or stereo headphones employ one technology or the other. Our engineers at Pro-Ears were not willing to compromise the quality of our sound for the sake of simplicity or cost. The result is the hybrid digital/analog system found exclusively in the Gold Series active hearing protectors.
Most electronic hearing protectors are controlled by a single circuit board. One circuit board may cost less and be lighter weight than two boards, but when it comes to sound quality, it is a compromise Pro-Ears is not willing to make. A circuit board in each cup means no wires to get hung up as you are getting into your tree stand. In a rough situation where your ear muffs get banged around or dropped, one damaged circuit board will not knock out your whole system. The ability to adjust each cup to match your personal hearing profile is part of the competitive advantage.
There is an unavoidable trade off in designing earmuffs between compression of the headband and noise attenuation. Sound pressure waves penetrate hearing protectors through the cup, ear cushion and any gap separating the cushion and the surface of your head. One way to reduce gaps is to tightly squeeze the cups to your head. The problem with this approach is that the tighter the squeeze, the greater the headache. This is particularly true if the ear cushion does not balance the resistance and compensate for the headband compression, which causes the hard cup material to press against your head. Most people only wear uncomfortable earmuffs for short periods of time, and as a result their hearing is at greater risk. Our designers have found a method to reduce the gaps and increase the effectiveness of the ear cushions.
The ability to focus is essential for top performance. Fear of equipment failure takes away from your focus. That is why we take pride in being the first company to install an 8 bit microprocessor that runs continuous diagnostics on all critical components and ensure your earmuffs are in top working order. An LED light tucked into the ear muff informs you your system is working. An audible low battery alert gives you plenty of warning that you need to change your battery before it fails. Military grade circuit boards are used to reduce failure due to handling and the elements.
