Take total control of what you hear. Independent earbuds give you total volume control, allowing you to adjust your settings for listening to what you want to hear.



Taking influence from some of our favorite behind-the-head headphones, we developed lightweight, waterproof earbuds with Bluetooth capabilities that produce high-fidelity sound quality, but also can act as hearing protection for dangerously loud environments. This small innovation can handle even the toughest of environments.


Despite its small size, this remarkable device boasts a 28 db NRR, effectively compressing loud sounds to provide you with one of the highest NRR ratings available. Built to withstand the challenges, the Stealth Elite is water-resistant, ensuring sweat won’t compromise its performance. Weighing in at just 28 grams, it’s unbelievably lightweight, making it easy to comfortably wear for extended periods.

Plus, with Bluetooth connectivity, you can seamlessly integrate it with your devices, enhancing your overall experience. The Stealth Elite is also equipped with miniature analog hybrid circuits that deliver clear, natural sound quality, ensuring you don’t miss a single detail of your surroundings. Whether you’re at an indoor range, tackling yard work, working in construction, or engaging in intense physical activities like biking, running, or auto racing, the Stealth Elite is your ultimate companion for safeguarding your hearing. Don’t let its size fool you – within this tiny package lies a powerhouse of cutting-edge ear protection technology.


Protecting our ears is essential if we want to hold onto our hearing for the rest of our life. Most hearing protection on the market today is either bulky, uncomfortable or just doesn’t work nearly as well as it should. At Pro Ears, we believe that electronic hearing protection shouldn’t keep us from having fun or staying safe, it should give us the freedom to hear exactly what we want to hear. The Stealth Elite allows for maximum situational awareness by allowing ambient sounds to pass through even while you are listening to music or talking on the phone. Similarly, the 5x hearing enhancement settings allow you to hear quiet sounds even at a distance, working similarly to hearing aids while simultaneously protecting your ears from any loud noises.


We’ve designed these electronic ear plugs to cater to every facet of your life. Unleash the potential of water resistance testing, ensuring it triumphs against high-pressure, drenching sprays. While it doesn’t take to water submersion, rest assured that it’s your stalwart companion against the elements. Conquer your intense workouts, rain-soaked jogs, and invigorating bike rides with unyielding confidence. Even during scorching hunting days, the Stealth Elite remains unwavering, keeping you in the zone without compromise.

Stealth Elite Isolation Mode
Stealth Elite Awareness Mode

5 times amplification, with industry trusted hearing protection


By using miniaturized analog circuits and noise isolating microphones, the Stealth Elites comes with an incredible amount of features. With three modes of operation, the Stealth Elites are ready for whatever you want to listen to. 

Want to tune out the world so you can listen to music or your favorite podcast? Isolation mode tunes out background noise and gives you the ability to pay attention to what you want to listen to.

Setting the Elites to Awareness mode allows external noises to enter through the ear bud, without interrupting whatever you’re listening to. Perfect for people who are cycling to work but still need to hear a car passing you from behind.

If you’re the hunting type, then you’ll love our Amplification mode. By switching the ear buds to Amplification, you’ll be able to amplify quiet sounds up to three times their normal decibel.


Experience the ultimate freedom of choice with the Pro Ears Stealth Elite. Seamlessly integrating into your lifestyle, this ingenious device can be worn wirelessly, allowing you to move with unrestricted ease while still enjoying top-tier hearing protection and immersive sound quality. Alternatively, adding the lanyard provides an additional avenue of convenience and connectivity. The Bluetooth lanyard allows you to connect to your own device, creating your own Bluetooth shooting earbuds.

    Can be used for hunting and shooting Cuts out loud sounds and enlarges small sounds.
    Reviewed in Japan
    Style: Stealth EliteColor: BlackVerified Purchase
    I used electronic earmuffs, but I bought them because it was hot in summer and it was difficult to walk when hunting.
    The sound insulation is fine, and the smaller you don’t know the sound is being added, the better.
    At the maximum, it has the same magnification effect as an electronic earmuff.
    Does not get in the way even while wearing.

    Excellent product. Low Profile and great for any outdoor activities. The option to use the bluetooth tether and make them headphones is a super awesome feature. Having different modes for the ear protection stand point is such a benefit. I can now hunt with friends and have a conversation while still wearing ear protection. 5 stars.

    I have been a satisfied customer & user of ProEars/Altus Brands products for many years (ProEars Gold & Silver22 muffs, ProFit plugs & Stealth 28 headband.) Every one of their products has given me great service and their track record gives me great confidence that this one will, as well.

    The ProEars Stealth Elite is a very well designed & functional product. It includes all of the little extras needed to make it comfortable & easy to use. A customized, individual, functional fit is accomplished by choosing from the multiple sizes of provided ear hook loops and 2 types of ear tips (foam for hearing protection & isolation, silicon for clarity while listening to media or phone conversations.) 2 sets of batteries are included for the earbuds as well as a USB C cable for charging the Bluetooth unit. To keep everything conveniently together & organized, there is a lanyard and a compact hard storage case.

    After I dialed in my fit, loaded the batteries & connected the Bluetooth unit, I easily paired it to my cellphone & brought up some YouTube music videos. WOW, the sound was incredibly (ProEars quality) clear & crisp. Fortuitously, while watching the video, I received a phone call and hit the answer button on the Bluetooth unit. The quality of the conversation was excellent and the volume was easily controlled with the buttons on the Bluetooth unit. The caller remarked that it was so much clearer that my usual Bluetooth headset and without the echo & feedback that was usually present from it.

    The features and sound quality of the ProEars Stealth Elite are well worth the price of admission and I’m totally sold on it. And this is even before I take it to the shooting range. It is truly a multi-functional product that will find equal use at home, while traveling and of course, on the shooting range.

    Congratulations ProEars, you’ve added yet another great product to your stellar lineup!

    Amazing! Best Hearing Protection Ever
    Style: Stealth EliteColor: Black
    I have used dozens of different hearing protection methods over the years and these are by far the best and worth every penny. First, the fact that you can cancel loud noises like a gun shooting but amplify other noises is incredible. If you want you can cancel virtually all noises or amplify them to hear noises that you would ordinarily miss. Second, I listen to music and books on my phone, I put these in and have great sound quality and no outside interruption. When the phone rings, they switch to the phone – both incoming and outgoing sound is terrific. Third, they are comfortable, I had to find the inserts that I like the best but there are many sizes and styles to choose from – they are all part of the package. I can put these in my ears all day and they do not bother me or fall out like others I have tried. Lastly, I use these on airplanes with my iPad or iPhone the Bluetooth works great. I liked these so much I bought another set for my wife and my son-in-law and they love them too.

    Can’t go wrong with Stealth Elites, I am in ranges weekly as part of my job and love not having to carry bulky over the ear muffs, when going in and out. Have the over ear Ultras I have owned for 10yrs and these are just as good of quality. Like the first reviewer Edward Ducote noted, both the over the ear and in the ear have their place. I use the over the ear if I will be around short barreled rifles indoors and the in the ear Stealth Elites for most anything else. Doug VanderWoude

    Not a very usable product, I’ll keep looking
    Style: Stealth EliteColor: Black
    I really want these to work as I’m a big fan of Pro Ears – my Pro Ears Gold Stalker muffs are superb – but I wanted something to wear while shooting skeet that was cooler in warm weather but still provided hearing enhancement. I was hoping to be able to wear them while hunting as well.

    Like one of the other reviewers, this pair makes a hissing noise when in the 1 position, which gets annoying. It only gets worse on the 2nd position with an added electronic-sounding whine and louder hissing. It’s not unbearable and, while shooting, I tend to forget it’s there, but when sitting quietly in the woods while hunting, it’s very noticeable and the annoyance factor is elevated.

    As far as sound suppression, it’s OK, but it’s hard for me to believe that the NRR is 28. I can use them on an open skeet field but I have to go with muffs at the outdoor range that is covered with an awning in the shooting area and walls on both sides. They just don’t seem to get the job done and I suspect they would be useless in an indoor range.

    I’ve tried to use these on & off since October of 2020, 7 months now, & my opinion hasn’t changed. They just aren’t a very good product as far as my needs are concerned.

    Electronic in ear hearing protection that lasts all week on one set of batteries, doesn’t have any cords (unless you decided to use the bluetooth, 3 different audio settings (off, low, high), comes with a good carrying case and additional ear plug options, and has a bluetooth option for $150! Show me another company doing this and has a quality product, I’ll wait while you try and find what doesn’t exist. I have personally tried 3 different companies options for wireless in ear electronic hearing protection in the past 3 years with prices ranging from $300-$500. Two of the “main stream” options failed in less than 12 months and the companies would not warranty them and the third option had such bad audio that I simply stopped using them. The Stealth Elite’s are the new go to for shooters, hunters, and even simply those that want a bluetooth audio option. I have now used these in 4 major shooting matches without issue or concern. I am classifying a match shooting match as 200+ people with at least one day of full shooting if not two and generally 500+ rounds of fire for the match. The Stealth Elite have stood up to the abuse and with a company like ProEars backing it up with their unparalleled quality I don’t see a reason to buy anything else if you are in the market for quality hearing protection….well at least until the generation 2 comes out.

    As a side note – the bluetooth being removable is a stroke of genius. When I am shooting I have no need for the bluetooth dongle at all but when I am mowing, weed eating, or doing yard work it is great to have as an option while still protecting my hearing.

    Most versatile headphones/earmuffs/hearing aid I have owned.
    Style: Stealth EliteColor: Black
    I purchased these for hunting purposes but did not realize the multifunctional use. With the strap connected, they are noise cancelling headphones. The lanyard strap is detachable and allows you to have wireless earbuds in. These are the first earbuds I have ever owned that allow noise cancelling, or noise amplification while still lowering loud gun shot noises to safe decibels. I am extremely impressed with the versatility of these. I used to hunt birds and not want to wear heating protection because I couldn’t talk to my buddies with it in, but these changed that completely. It is like have Bose Headphones noise cancelling with air pods convenience all while having hearing aids in. The ear pieces do require a battery, which are provided with the package, and 2 extras. The lanyard charges via a usb cable. The sound through the music is clear as any headphones I have ever used. I am genuinely impressed with these. They have replaced my Bose and apple headphones.

    Just received 2 pairs of Stealth Elite for my wife and I, and wow! Exceeded my expectations since this is a new product.. They work great. I highly recommend,

    After recently buying and using a pair of the Pro Ears Predator Gold earmuffs, I saw the new Pro Ears Stealth Elite ear buds. These ear buds basically have the same functions as the ear muffs regarding sound technology except with a little higher NRR rating. Being satisfied with the Predator ear muffs, I decided to try the new Stealth ear buds. I wondered about having both styles of ear protection but found there are situations where both can be very useful. Obviously the ear muffs take up more room on your head but are quicker to put on and don’t pose uncomfortableness in the ear canal. If there exists an issue of the muffs being “in the way” of whatever I’m doing, I can simply use the Stealth ear buds to alleviate that. Also, in hot weather I find the ear buds can’t cause sweating in and around the ear. So, I do find where each unit has its place in my style of outdoor activities which are shooting and hunting.
    When I received the new Stealth Elite earbuds, I first tried the foam ear pieces. For me, the foam expansion to seal the ear became a bit uncomfortable over time and proved a little more time consuming to install. So, on the next outing I tried the clear ear tips and was able to install them almost instantly, plus they didn’t cause much if any ear canal fatigue over time. I suppose each person has to find what works best for them at the given time and activity.
    The sound technology of the Stealth Elite ear buds works the way the ear muffs do. There are basically three positions or modes you can dial in. The first mode is simply sound blocking or passive plugging of the ear canal in the case that you’d want everything to be quiet. The second mode is where low amplification of ambient sound is acquired while maintaining loud sound compression. The third mode is where higher amplification of ambient sound is acquired while maintaining loud sound compression. All these modes are accessed by the small switch on the ear buds. And like the Predator muffs technology, each ear can be tuned to independent settings. I personally enjoy the individual ear bud adjustments because I have more hearing loss in my left ear as compared to might right ear. So, setting my left ear bud on the higher setting (mode three) and the right ear bud on the lower setting (mode two), I am able to balance the ambient sounds I hear without compromising loud sound compression. This is how the Predator muffs individual controls work also and it is great technology.
    After shooting several hundreds rounds in my 12 gauge, I found the Stealth Elite ear buds to be very worthy of top-notch ear protection while maintaining ambient situational awareness. I recently joined a shooting range which is located in a rural area and is somewhat cluttered with small trees and brush between each range station. Having the ear buds on amplification mode while shooting, I heard a sound I hadn’t heard much before. It was the sound of a vehicle rolling on dirt. To my surprise I looked around to see a truck pulling up behind me. I now no longer have to be concerned with someone sneaking up behind me or going to great lengths to get my attention. All while maintaining truly world class safe db sound compression. You can’t beat that with a stick!
    So, the Stealth Elite ear buds with loud sound compression and ambient sound amplification are a marvel in technology and usefulness. The small switches to turn them on/off while wearing them have a good enough detent to where you can switch between the three modes quite easily. I did it even while wearing shooting gloves, even though at first, I doubted I could. For such a small unit, they are very ergonomically designed.
    The Stealth Elite ear buds come with a rechargeable “Bluetooth lanyard”. I charged the lanyard and paired it with my cell phone. Then I asked my wife to call me and with one tap on the button I received the call. The fidelity of the ear bud speakers are incredibly clear. I also turned my song playlist on and was very impressed by the sound quality. I don’t always require using the Bluetooth lanyard, but when I do, I am extremely confident of its ability to operate flawlessly and with great fidelity. These ear buds are solidly built units with quality materials.
    So, the bottom line for me is this. The Stealth Elite ear buds are, and do, everything they are designed and advertised to do, and in great fashion. The loud sound compression is outstanding and the ambient sound amplification is a clear necessity for situational awareness.
    So, do I recommend the new Stealth Elite ear buds: You bet I do! Even if you have a set of Pro Ears muffs. They both have their well-deserved and respective places in the shooting/hunting arenas.
    I am a verified purchaser of the new Stealth Elite ear buds with Bluetooth lanyard and have not been solicited in any way to write this review…..Get you some, you won’t be disappointed.
