    Electronic ear defenders ???

    What they like for still being able to hear normal sounds??

    As thinking about getting a pair but dont want to miss the sounds going on around me. i.e animals in bushes and trees

    Get a pair that amplify ambient noise, you can hear more than usual and you dont have to lug a rifle plus mod around, affecting your rifle's balance

    Recently discussed in the 'Top Tips' part of the forum:

    El cheapo Silverline (3yr warranty) ones from Amazon could be a good way to try them out before springing for more expensive models, (if needed).

    I have a pair of custom moulded ear plugs and they enable me to hear comments and range orders when on the range and they amplify natural sounds when in the field. I previously had a basic pair of stereo earmuffs and it was the performance they gave that gave me the confidence to have the plugs made.

    Like Von, I use MSA Sordin, best bits of kit, amplifies the sounds at various levels (which you can choose)......expensive but very, very good. I use mine for my shotgun shooting as well and no problems with cutting the noise to safe levels.

    Excellent. I like them best for the chat you hear from girls out shooting. Ideally if it is a weekend party and there might be ongoing scandal discussed by girls nearby. An innocent face while listening to female sexual desires while shooting partidges in september sunshine is a great memory.......
