ESP Electronic Shooters Protection - Hear the Difference!

It's a cold, hard fact—gunfire is harmful to your hearing. Sounds louder than 90dB, over a period of time, can damage your hearing. Normal conversation registers in the range of 45-60dB. The average gun blast can range in excess of 140dB, close to the noise level of a jet engine. When properly fitted, earplugs can significantly reduce loud noises and prevent hearing damage. ESP electronic hearing protectors are designed for a precise, comfortable fit and the ultimate in hearing protection. ESP's circuitry limits amplified output (the level of sound coming into your ear) to a safe 90dB. At the same time ESPs amplify normal sounds below 9 dB, even sounds as soft as speech and the noises of nature. Even if your hearing is already impaired, it's never too late to protect your hearing!

There are four ESP models to fit your individual needs. There are In-the-Ear and Behind-the-Ear models in both digital and analog circuits. The BTE models come with three sizes of standard earbuds. Custom earplugs are available. ITE models require custom ear impressions (additional charge from a hearing care provider).


ESP Elite (ITE) and Pro-Elite (BTE) are the ultimate in analog hearing protection.

Non-Amplified Earplugs

 ESP Silencer
Shot-filled earplugs are great for situations like trap and rifle competition where total concentration is important. Vastly superior to a disposable plug. More mass dissipates and deflects incoming noise. Delivers much greater impact reduction than non-custom devices. Soft-flex ear mold resists shrinking and hardening. Retains custom fit for years.
Part # ESP-SILENCER.....$150.00 / pair (requires ear impressions)

  HARC Custom Earplugs
A set of custom earplugs weighs next to nothing and takes up less space than a 12 gauge shell. They fit easily into your pocket, and are more comfortable than any generic plugs or heavy muffs. There's no excuse not to have hearing protection with you all the time. You can choose from three models of plugs for the best solution for you. (All require ear impressions)
NOTE: There is no return for refund for custom earmold products. They may be returned within 30 days for remake if the fit is not right. A new set of impressions will be required for remakes due to fit.
