Hearing protection is a high priority for gun owners, and technology has advanced to the point where there is truly no excuse not to protect your hearing to the fullest. Walker’s Game Ear is known for innovative technology and high-quality ear protection. Their family of products includes everything from foamies to ear muffs to earbuds, and more. The latest from Walker’s is The Disrupter, electronic ear buds designed to cancel potentially damaging noise while elevating what you need to hear.
Walker’s has been leading the way in the design and production of quality hearing protection for two decades. The company states they’re taking another leap forward for gun owners with the release of their latest product, Disrupter electronic earbuds.
The Disrupter is a set of individual earbuds made to protect the wearer’s hearing by canceling sounds at dangerous levels, such as the noise of gunfire. In addition to their noise canceling abilities, these earbuds can also enhance the sounds the wearer needs to hear around them as well as clarify audio from a cell phone or similar device thanks to Bluetooth connectivity. Walker’s says the Disrupter is a totally comprehensive solution for noise protection and sound enhancement.
The Disrupter includes not one but four new technologies for superior performance:
- Forward Focus Mode: Two microphones are located in each earbud so the user can enhance sounds originating in front of them while simultaneously minimizing peripheral noise. This feature is especially handy when doing something like shooting steel at long ranges.
- 360 Directional Sound: Those microphones deliver 360° directional audio, meaning the wearer can tell where a sound is coming from. This is a fantastic feature for hunters or those in high-noise outdoor work.
- ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) Technology: Designed to reduce unwanted background noise, and improve the wearer’s ability to concentrate on the task at hand while delivering an improved listening experience.
- Rapid Impulse Cancellation (IC): This new IC technology delivers incredibly fast reaction time, dampening harmful noise levels to ensure the best possible hearing protection.
These earbuds come with five programmed ambient sound settings so the wearer can choose the mode necessary for their current environment. Settings include Universal, Clear Voice, Hi-Frequency Boost, Power Boost, and Custom.
The Disrupter ships with two styles of in-ear tips and three sizes of noise-reducing foam ear tips. This allows the wearer to properly fit the earbuds to their ears for maximum hearing protection.
The Disrupter earbuds are controlled through the Walker’s Link 2.0 app. The app has numerous useful features including the ability to change between five programmed sound settings. Earbuds come in a rugged, durable USB charging case that is capable of holding a charge up to six hours with Bluetooth streaming or 11 hours when in ambient mode.
MSRP for Walker’s The Distrupter electronic earbuds is set at $279.99.
