Walker’s is known as a leader in hearing protection and enhancement and now they are releasing their most ergonomic electronic sound-management system yet for shooters and hunters. The new ATACS Sport Earbuds delivers the state-of-the-art performance that serious shooters demand in a platform that is designed for all-day comfort and convenience.

All kinds of shooters are realizing how the comfort and digital control of an earbud-style, sound-management system protects their hearing and amplifies and clarifies ambient sound. While earbuds perform these tasks admirably, the fit and security can vary between shooters, especially during high-activity, high-mobility scenarios such as competition shooting and hunting.

The all-new ATACS Sport Earbuds addresses these challenges by incorporating a dual-retention system into a sophisticated and ergonomic platform. The Walker’s engineers set out to develop an earbud system that would work for everyone, since shooters come in all shapes and sizes. Their engineers did this by incorporating soft and flexible ear hooks as well as a behind-the-neck retention strap into a freshly designed earbud chassis. This unitized retention system, combined with multi-sized foam ear tips, means the ATACS Sport Earbuds are comfortable to wear under any condition yet will still remain in place even during high intensity activities.

The ATACS Sport Earbuds also include the latest in operational control and sound suppression and enhancement technology. The Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity of the earbuds allows you to your phone via the Walker’s LINK 2.0 app in order to provide remote control of the listening mode settings (universal, clear voice, power boost, and high frequency boost) as well as auto shutoff times (off, 2, 4, and 6 hours), volume control, battery level, ambient mute, and social media links.

The new ATACS Sport Earbuds come with three different-size foam ear tips and a USB-C charging cable to deliver up to 7.5 hours of battery life per charge.

What is the Greatest Defensive Skill?

You can say what you want to about your favorite defensive school or those advanced-fighting techniques you learned, but the greatest defensive skill that a person can develop is simply awareness. I will freely admit that developing effective awareness is anything but simple, but being able to spot trouble before it is close enough to get in your face will certainly save you from a lot of trouble and possibly even some pain and grief.
