All shooters and hunters are aware they need hearing protection to help prevent hearing loss, with custom-fit products often representing the upper-end of this market. With this in mind, WildEar has debuted its own custom-fit hearing protection called EarzOn. Each set is custom manufactured using digital technology to ensure all-day comfort and superior fit. Promised features include:

* Consistent protection: Because custom earplugs go in the ear just one way and are designed to fit the individual’s ear canal precisely, research studies show that actual protection in the real-world more closely matches laboratory-derived noise reduction predictions than other classes of earplugs.

* Durability: Unlike foam or even most pre-molded vinyl earplugs, customs are designed to survive for years.

* Expanded Fitment: One clear advantage of custom hearing protection is that all sizes and shapes of ears can be accommodated, even when surgery, disease or injury has radically changed the characteristics of the outer ear.

There are multiple non-electric styles available: EarzOn Acrylic, EarzOn Soft Silicone, EarzOn Ultra-Soft Silicone, and EarzOn Filtered Acrylic and Silicone. The passive units feature a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 26dB. The Filtered Acrylic units feature a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 11-19dB, with specially-designed acoustic filters that reduce sounds evenly across a wide frequency range. The filters allow you to turn down the volume (noise) without sacrificing listening quality.

In addition to the Custom Hearing Protection, each product includes a lanyard with clothing clip, zipper pouch, and one packet of Earset Gel for the initial break-in period. MSRP for EarzOn Acrylic in blue, red, or black, and EarzOn Soft Silicone in orange, blue or black, is $99.50. MSRP for EarzOn Ultra-Soft Silicone is $119.50 and they are available in orange/black and pink/black. MSRP for EarzOn Filtered Acrylic is $134.50, or $136.50 for the unit with a toggle feature.
