One of the first products in the Sport lineup is the ISOtunes Sport Advance, a lightweight active electronic hearing protection system.

The Sport Advance limits volume output to no more than 85dB for all-day, damage-free listening on the range. Advance’s innovative design allows it to weigh less than 24 grams and yet still be completely dust, sweat, and waterproof with an IP67 durability rating. An assortment of ear tip options to guarantee shooters a comfortable fit, making Advance is a great hearing protection solution for shooters of all shapes, sizes, and activity levels.
