We all want to protect our hearing at the range. Gun shots are loud, and without protection can quickly lead to irreversible damage. Ear muffs provide the greatest level of protection, but bring an attendant loss of hearing when not actively shooting. One solution is to pair an amplified microphone with a built-in sensor that automatically cuts out when noise exceeds a certain level. Ear muffs that offer this feature allow you to carry on a normal conversation the instant firing ceases.
But muffs are cumbersome, bulky, don't fit well over a hat and will interfere with a good cheek weld. Wouldn't it be great if you could get the same hearing protection and ambient amplification you find in powered ear muffs in an in-the-ear solution?

They offer a noise reduction rating of 25 decibels (when used as directed), yet can actually amplify ambient, non-harmful sounds up to five-fold.
