Trophy Ear Flexx Pro Hearing Protection

The Flexx Pro’s custom-fit full-shell design conforms to your ears for optimal comfort and hearing protection. The digital compression circuit hushes noises above 85 dB, without shutting off. This protects your hearing from gunfire, while enabling situational awareness. $1,199

Through the years, I’ve tried my fair share of in-­ear hearing protection. Plugs work well at muffling gunshots but, unfortunately, they make it difficult to hear anything at all. On the range or in the field, this can be problematic. In-­ear electronic hearing protection is often uncomfortable, cheaply designed, or lacking sound quality. Trophy Ear’s flagship product, the Flexx Pro takes electronic hearing protection to another level.

Of course, in order for Trophy Ear to create your custom digital hearing protection, they need molds of your inner ears. The supplied DIY kit contains a two-­part silicone mixture that is placed into an impression syringe and injected into the ear. Here’s a pro tip: Follow the directions, the silicone sets quickly. Or, if you don’t mind paying a little extra, you can have an audiologist obtain the molds of your inner ears for you.

Each unit is powered by a common size 10 hearing aid battery.

Fit isn’t the only thing that’s custom with Flexx Pro. You can choose a black, blaze orange or a beige faceplate, and just about any color you can think of for the shells, including up to three colors swirled together. More importantly, if you suffer from hearing loss, simply include a copy of your latest hearing test when you send your ear impressions to Trophy Ear and they will program the units to your specific needs.

The Flexx Pro’s waterproof, Nano-coated shell material is soft and pliable. The units fit perfectly and stay securely and comfortably in place. Each unit offers four hearing programs that you can toggle through with the push of a button. The first is for relatively quiet environments, with no wind or rain. Subsequent programs are for progressively louder conditions.

A DIY mold kit is provided to ensure the custom shells perfectly fit the user’s ears.

Turning the volume-control knob forward turns the unit on and increases volume. Turning it rearward lowers the volume until the unit turns off. The audio clarity provided by the 12-­band digital signal processor was the best I’ve experienced with in-­ear electronic hearing protection. The Flexx Pro actually enhanced my hearing, while protecting it.


Each Flexx Pro unit is powered by a readily-available size 10 hearing-aid battery, which provides around 96 hours of use. The pair comes in a hard case with spare batteries, a bristle brush and disposable wax guards that prevent ear wax accumulation in the unit’s receiver. Worth noting, all Trophy Ear products are made in the U.S.

The Flexx Pro is my new go-­to hearing protection. Although, priced at $1,199, they are admittedly a bit spendy albeit more affordable than conventional hearing aids. If you’re looking for a more budget-­friendly solution, visit trophyear.com and have a look at Trophy Ear’s full lineup. The Custom Solid Ear Plugs start at $110.
