Pro Ears Shooter Spotlight: Tom Carpenter

2018 again won the Virginia State IDPA Championship (ESP division).

Top finisher at the Task Force Dagger 3-Gun Championship. This event saw the very best 3-gunners from all over the US facing typical TFD3G challenging but ‘shootable’ stages.

“In all my matches Pro Ears hearing protection performed well and yielded all day comfort in very high temperatures and humidity. They are the standard by which all others are measured. I have been wearing Pro Ears most of my career and would never change brands.”

    Counterfeit product? You decide
    Color: Black
    It’s either a counterfeit or pro ears quality had gone downhill. Foam sticks out after inserting battery. Not to mention the suspicious looking box it came with and without any mention of Pro Ears.

  2. R & T – Verified Purchase

    TOP Quality
    Color: Green
    Used the basic noise canceling ear muffs at Front Sight Training Facility, they were not easy to hear with especially with the wind.

    Bought the Pro Ears – Pro Tac SC Gold – Military Grade Hearing Protection and Amplification – NRR 25 – Ear Muffs – Green went to Front Sight again, HOLY COW what a difference the sound quality was AMAZING. Wind did not effect much at all!

    These are US Made, not cheap but WELL worth the $$$.

    LOVE these ear pro!
    Color: Black
    I have used my Pro Ears Pro Tac SC for over 4 years as a competitive practical shooter. They are simply the best! Sound quality AND directional awareness are outstanding. Sound attenuation is excellent for all but the very nastiest 5.56 brakes or ROing the braked Heavy (.308) shooters. So comfortable, it’s easy to forget you have them on. Mine have withstood several “vertical drop tests” and one rainy match when they were completely drenched (not recommended). Battery life is amazing and the auto off helps ensure they are ready to roll for the next match. You will not be disappointed with they Pro Tac Gold as they are head and shoulders above lower cost brands. Additionally, the Slim Cup (SC) model doesn’t interfere with my cheek weld for either rifle or shotgun. Unless I ever need the Comm capability of other brands, I can’t imagine ever searching for better ear pro.

    Ok but probably would not buy again
    Color: Green
    These are just OK. WATCH HOW YOU BUY THEM! These are priced all over the place. Had I known this I could have saved $25.

    So why OK? They fit tight and the ear cups are a bit small even with my smallish ears. I can wiggle my ears into them however. Are they really NRR 25? Have no idea but thought they were a bit loud at the range yesterday.

    I will say the ability to hear range commands and the volume adjustment is very good. I had to turn them way down which was nice.

    They are not as nice feeling as my 15 year old Sordins which finally died. I would have gone the Sordins but their NRR was showing only 18. I’m not sure the Pro Ears are better. I’ll keep them but if I had to do over I would probably stay with Sordins.

    These are fantastic.

    Probably the best muffs on the market
    Color: Black
    They are pricey but they are also the best I’ve tried so far. Are they worth the 5 to 8 times what cheaper sets go for, probably not. I’d say they are 2-3 times better than sets found in the 50-75$ range. But if confort and mostly sound clarity is important to you, then get these Pro Ears Gold. We’ve got 3 sets going, all “Gold” but different models. Satisfied with all of them. I bought these because I wanted slim cups and be able to use 123 batteries.

    Can’t go wrong
    Color: Black
    My second set. I needed a pair while I sent my old one’s in for well needed maintenance. These are the best on the market, period. I sent my last par in for repair due to 6 years of abuse, and Pro Ears repaired them for free. Excellent customer service.

    These are the best electronic muffs I’ve tried
    Color: Black
    These are the best electronic muffs I’ve tried. You need to be aware of how these work. The electronics are very good at cutting out a gunshot. The 25db rating is okay, but you’re going to find non-electronic muffs that deaden sound more. For electronic muffs these are great, especially if you need to hear people talking. They’re spectacular for that, and if you increase the gain on the circuit boards (simple – it’s just a jumper to move), they’re like bionic ears! They were actually so sensitive at the rifle range that I turned them off – the sounds of people talking were too distracting for me. They’re outstanding on a pistol range, but on the rifle range I want complete quiet and will continue to use ear plugs. Very interesting to use, as they deaden the sound of the shot very well, but if you turn the volume up, they will amplify the sound of the bullet going supersonic down the range. Hard to explain until you try them. They work very well, but take getting used to. If you’re shooting with friends and need to hear them talk, these are the way to go. I’ve found them to be noticeably better quality than lesser expensive electronic muffs. One key positive is the fact that when the electronics cut out the sound of a shot, they still amplify other sounds, so you keep hearing someone speaking even though other people are shooting. Cheaper units don’t do that; some just cut out everything at the same time. The only con for me is that although 25db sound deadening is good, it’s not as good as dedicated muffs or earplugs. The rifle range will seem louder to you than when wearing plugs, but it’s still a safe level. You just have to get used to them.
