In the not-too-distant past, shooters had two choices when it came to hearing protection. In-ear plugs worked well — sometimes so well you couldn’t hear conversations or more importantly, range commands. Then there were muffs worn over the ear. The drawback to muffs were that they could make it difficult to obtain a proper cheek weld and sight picture with a rifle or shotgun.
Nevertheless, shooters have flocked to electronic muffs. Not only do they muffle the sound of gunfire, they amplify voices, making them ideal for communicating on the range.
Walker’s new Silencer Bluetooth Rechargable Earbuds combine the best of both worlds, affording you the convenience of plugs with the sound modulating capabilities of electronic muffs. As if that wasn’t reason enough to own a set, they are Bluetooth enabled so you can listen to the John Wick soundtrack while burning down that plate rack.
The Silencer BT Series Earbuds come with small, medium and large Sure-Lock sizing fins and foam earbud tips, so you’re sure to achieve a comfortable fit. The earbuds will hold a charge for about 14 hours of general use or 4 hours of Bluetooth streaming.
The charging case contains a micro USB port and cable. The case will charge the earbuds six times before it too needs to be recharged. The case is typically fully charged in about 2½ hours. To charge the earbuds simply put them in the case and close the lid. When the red LED light turns off, the earbuds are fully charged.
It seems there’s an app for everything these days, and the Silencer Bluetooth Rechargeable Earbuds are no exception. The free app enables you to control your program settings, monitor battery life, adjust volume and customize your auto shut-off time, all right from your smartphone.
I found the earbuds to be extremely comfortable and user-friendly. They paired easily with my phone and performed exactly as advertised. With a noise reduction rating of 23 decibels, these earbuds will help prevent hearing loss.
Walker’s Silencer Bluetooth Rechargeable Series Earbuds have an MSRP of $299.99. If you’re looking to preserve your hearing in comfort and style while being able to carry on a conversation, they are well worth the cost. Visit Walker’s at walkersgameear.com to learn more.
