Shooting Ear Protection.
Ear defenders are designed to protect your ears and avoid any damage to your hearing during a day of shooting. Having the right shooting ear protection equipment and supplies is essential for not only the enjoyment of the sport but for your safety. Ear defenders should be at the top of your shooting kit list
Why do we need shooting ear protection?
Hearing Protection is an essential requirement for shooters of shotguns, rifles, and handguns. Even centrefire rifles fitted with moderators and suppressors can produce sound levels capable of damaging hearing. Equipment worn for protection against the harmful effects of noise is known as Personal Protective Equipment, or as many know it, PPE.
What is CENS?
CENS is used by thousands of shooters worldwide, including many who are highly renowned and recognized. CENS Brand Ambassador George Digweed MBE (26-time world champion clay shooter) says: “I have been using my CENS since 2012, and would not be without them in the field. Not only do my CENS ProFlex digitals provide excellent noise suppression and the ability to hear ambient noise such as wing beats, they still allow you to have a normal conversation without the need to remove them. This makes them an invaluable part of my game shooting equipment.”
Electronic hearing protection
These incorporate an electronic sound reproduction system. At low levels of noise, the sound detected by a microphone on the outside of the device is relayed to a loudspeaker. At higher levels of impulse noise, the electronic circuit cuts out, leaving the inherent attenuation of the device/ear-moulding to provide the protection. CENS devices are digitally programmed and optimized for various shooting styles and disciplines. The digital algorithm which is implemented in the devices has been researched and developed after many years of field studies by technical personnel and shooters at Puretone Ltd (the designers and manufacturers of CENS). The result is an unparalleled range of devices to suit most budgets.
CENS is proud of its commitment to protecting people’s hearing all over the world, and the reputation that it has developed as a result of professionally testing and marketing its devices.
