3M produce a host of personal health products and protective equipment, not to mention home and hygiene products and lots more. Their 3M-Peltor range of hearing protection is widely used for noise reduction by tradies and shooters to name a few to protect their hearing from damaging noise. The 3M Peltor range includes screw-in, disposable plugs and passive ear muffs that simply block out damaging noise. While this traditional style hearing protection is fine for use on a building site or at the range, they don’t allow you to hear sound around you. And this is why most hunters don’t wear them when out bush, chasing game. Sadly, this has resulted in loss of hearing for many of us.
Electronic ear muffs do, providing the ability to enhance sound around you via built-in amplifiers. However, when a loud noise such as a muzzle blast occurs the amplifier shuts down offering protection when it’s needed. Add to this, some models also offer the ability of Bluetooth connection of other devices with voice guided menus. There’s even a model that allows two-way radio communication.
Another plus for 3M Peltor is the fact they offer a full range of accessories to complement their extensive range of hearing protection. These include replacement kits like ear muff cushions and foam inserts and even replacement gel cups for some models.
