For years, I’ve used the same hearing protection at the shooting range. While they work well, there is no escaping the inherent disadvantages of earmuffs… they can be hot, and can sometimes interfere with getting a good cheek weld on your rifle.
Today I received a newly released product that may be a significant upgrade to my hearing protection. Allow me to introduce you to the new Walker’s Razor-X Earbud Headset! This electronic hearing protection features a behind-the-neck design that promises not to interfere with your weapon. And more importantly, they are rated to provide a very impressive 31dB of noise reduction, while also providing clear sound enhancement for “regular” conversation and sounds.
Unlike earmuffs, the Razor-X earbuds do require an initial setup/sizing to ensure optimal results. Once this is complete, I’ll report back with all the details. From there, we’ll get the Razor X hearing protection to the range!
