Unmatched Performance and Comfort
Dual Circuitboards with Independent Volume Control
Each Pro Ears electronic unit is made with independent circuit boards in each ear piece to provide you with the highest degree of quality stereo sound. With separate, independent controls the wearer can adjust each cup for hearing disparity or situational preference.
DLSC Technology for Fast, Natural Sound Quality
Protects your hearing from loud noise while magnifying fainter sounds. The electronics never 'cut out' or 'clip' providing you and uninterrupted experience with complete awareness of your working or play environment.
Ultimate Comfort and Easy Adjustability
Our ProForm Leather ear seals with memory foam are designed for extra comfort and extended wear in both hot and cold climates. Each pair of ear muffs has an easily adjustable, padded headband to ensure the best possible fit resulting in better performance. No plastic, no vinyl, no sweat.
Extras with No Detail Overlooked
Additional features include auto-shutoff to conserve battery life, low battery indicator so you are never caught off guard, stereo microphones for 360 degree situational awareness, 3.5mm aux input for iPod/MP3 compatibility and volume knobs specially designed for easy adjustment while wearing gloves.
Never Buy Another Pair of Ear Muffs Again
Fully enclosed, military grade circuitboards keep moisture out to increase reliability in harsh environments. Being the only ear muffs made with a dual circuitboard design, they also have no wires to tangle or break - so you can rest assured that your Pro Ears will work when you need them.
Our ear muffs are designed with automatic & programmable gain control and dual, independently adjustable volume controls. This provides the ability to set levels to compensate for hearing loss in one ear. As your hearing changes with age, your ear muffs can be configured to work best based on whatever your needs might be.
Pro Ears ear muffs are built with special, replaceable ear seals and headbands. As these parts naturally become worn with continued use, you don’t have to buy a brand new pair of muffs. Simply order a new set of ear seals and/or a new headband, snap them into place and you’re back in business - saving a lot of money along the way.
Unlike many other similar products on the market, Pro Ears are proudly and reliably Made in the USA. We stand behind the quality of our products, which is why each pair of Tac Gold Series ear muffs are backed by an industry-leading 5 year warranty. Rest assured that your hearing protection will work when you need it most.

Feels hefty/good quality - Overall the feel of the headphones (minus the strap, see below) feel very durable and of good construction. Some of my perception is derived from the heft, which may or may not be accurate. I'm not a scientist.
The knobs - Changing the volume is easy to do while using the product. They are large, slip-free, and dont seem to be in the way. I Like them.
Comfortable (except tight) - This product is comfortable (excepting the tightness, see below) in the sense that the material used to seal between your head and the plastic shell is pleasant and can be worn comfortably for hours.
The Head Band snaps on a whim - Here is the major weakness of this product. The quality of the head band is far far far below the quality of the rest of the product. Its as if they spent a bunch of R&D time and dollars on everything except the head band, for whatever reason, the team that was tasked with engineering and building the head band opted to outsource the material and engineering to Toys R Us and when they got the first prototype back they were like "yup, this is perfect! Go to production!"
Ear cup sealing rings are delicate - The material that I fawned over above (see Do Like > Comfortable, above) seems to have the durability qualities of a marshmallow. I grabbed these ear muffs off my chair, and the material caught on the underside lip of the back-rest on the chair, which caused it to tear. Sure, it wasn't designed to be used this way, but given the very low impact movement I would not expect it to cause a tear. Also, this part is not covered under the warranty.
False advertisement: There is a Youtube video out there which is titled "Pro Ears Demo" which at the time of this writing has 12,034 views and is published by what appears to be the Pro Ears Youtube channel. In this video a man talks us through the noise cancelling characteristics a consumer can expect when using the Pro Ears Gold product vs other electronic headphone technology. The main point made is that due to the "compression" technique they use, casual conversation is not drowned out by the sharp report of a firearm. Meaning, if you are talking and someone fires a round in the exact moment you say "false advertising" you would hear "false advertising." Disappointingly, I found that when this type of scenario played out on the range, all i could hear was "--- advertising", meaning, you still have to ask people to repeat themselves if a shot happens to ring out in the exact moment a word is spoken. I tried max volume to see if that changed anything, and it did not. What I'm getting at is that this product grandly fails to function as advertised. Granted, the functionality of the product is still okay in my book, but before purchasing, my expectations were set at level 10 for this feature, and it delivered at level 5; thus the feelings of betrayal that I now nurse when I contemplate the life choice I made in purchasing this product.
Tight (but comfortable) - Remember the Toys R Us headband that is used in this product? I'm assuming this is the reason that it feels so tight. Meaning, it compresses your head a bit, and might cause a slight head ache if worn for 4-8 hours (training class or competition, etc).
Warranty coverage - Go find the warranty page and read through what is covered. There are a number of things that in my mind should be covered, but they are not. Here is a sample of what you'll find "ITEMS NOT COVERED BY THE WARRANTY INCLUDE: ear cup grommets, sealing rings, microphone covers, foam battery covers, volume control knobs, batteries, battery terminals." -- There is more, and I recommend reading it to get an idea of how it works. I don't know if this is industry standard or not, so take this with a grain of salt.
1 stars off for false advertising (really want to take 2 off, but I'm feeling nice today because last night I broke my foot)
1 star off for building a great product with enough weak points as to drive the overall experience into a mediocre category
You may want to ask yourself if this product is worth the cost of entry.
