Which Electronic Ear Plugs?

Post by JSS » 11 Sep 2018, 4:08 pm

Hi Guys,

The other day my Mrs asked me what i want for my birthday which is still a couple of months away so i was impressed with her forward planning (she must want something).
But then she made the terrible mistake of saying "but no guns, i'm not buying you a gun" needless to say she doesn't love them like we enlightened people do, so i thought that's fair enough but her comment was still like a red flag to a bull, so no gun that's fine, but she didn't say no accessories :D

So I've got some electronic ear muffs for the range and some custom moulded ear plugs with those pressure activated things in them but i was thinking what about some electronic custom moulded plugs which would work for both range and hunting.
These were recommended and i think are what i'll be going for https://www.earmold.com.au/cens-digital-electronic-earplugs/cens-proflex-digital-2.htm but i just thought i'd ask if anyone had any other suggestions or recommendations of anything similar or better that's out there.

Cheers

I have a set of the CENS DX-5's and they are good. Very comfortable and the sort of thing you don't take out. They can be a bit annoying in wind as the mics tend to play it back as white noise (Might be soothing to some) but they are graet when spotlighting as you can hear a conversation and still be instantly ready for a shot.

I bought some of these https://www.sportear.com/products/ghost ... -essential Dealer/trader in Melbourne - less than 200 if I remember correctly. There's also a version that connect with Bluetooth to other devices.
I like them. USB recharge - not replaceable battery type.

Thanks Groundhog, i was wondering about them getting annoying leaving them in for hours so it's good to know that they're ok. Do you make use of the extra settings on the dx5? I did have a look at them too but wondered if i'd really only use the 2 settings anyway, although the idea of comms is pretty cool if your mates have them too. You might have just cost the mrs an extra couple of bucks :lol:

Thanks 49er, but those kind of plugs never seem to fit my ears properly & always want to fall out after a bit, I've tried so many different types over the years that i gave up on them.
I just want something i can throw in and leave in all day or night and forget about them.

I am still playing around with the settings, but mainly use Range and Hunter modes at the moment. I am guessing the more I have them in the more I will play with the settings and find the ones that I like. I have a major comp coming up so I will see what I like there.

these sit in your ear a bit differently to normal ear buds and are quite secure.
i have tried them in my ears and like you can't handle normal earbuds but these were good but i haven't brought a pair of my own yet to comment on quality and effectiveness but will be soon.

If only there was something we could attatch to our firearms to easily and safely protect our hearing and still maintain our situational awareness.

Oh wait......

Thanks Smithy i'll check them out.

Gaznaz the creation of such a thing would only be possible by pure witchcraft, and would surely be the most evil thing ever invented and would twist the very minds of those (Aussies) who possessed them into homicidal mass murderers. Oh i shudder to even think of such an invention.

Yes it's strange, is it not, given that one of the reasons given for banning is that those naughty criminals would take advantage and commit all sorts of "silent" killings with them.
Because it's only logical that the only reason they aren't already is that it's illegal.

I mean, that's why nobody takes drugs, right?
