Hearing the sounds of spring gobblers sounding off or bugling bulls in the backcountry are some of my great pleasures in life. As a hunter and a shooter, I want to make sure that I hear those sounds for the rest of my life. Hearing protection like the quality ProSounds M-Series Electronic Muffs allows you to enhance your hearing in the field and protect your hearing while shooting, offering the best of both worlds.
The ProSounds M-Series offers 3 versions for every budget. The M-4, M-2 and the M-P passive module are all three versions. The M-4 offers two directional microphones in both the left and right ear for a total of four microphones. The M-2 offers one microphone for both the left and right ear and the M-P version offers no electronic options and passive protection for your ears.
We tested the M-4 electronic muffs in advance of the Kickstarter campaign and I found them to be exceptional. The four microphones offered us the opportunity to hear range instructions and discern where those directions were coming from. In addition, we could listen to wildlife sounds and pinpoint the direction of those sounds. Both the M-4 and the M-2 allow up to 4x the amplification of natural sounds and you can adjust the volume on both the left and right ear. While shooting or with any loud sound over 85dB the electronic shutdown reduces all sounds by 25dB of noise reduction.
I also found that the ProSounds M-Series just look great. They have a sleek design, cut away for a clean cheek weld when aiming and look fantastic whether out in the field or on the range. I want products that are comfortable and provide the kind of features that keep me safe and look good. The batteries on these units are also easy to swap out with a simple slide and use AAA batteries. The passive models have the same sleek good looks though they offer no electronics built in and just offer basic ear protection.
These units are being offered on KickStarter before they hit the retail market at a fantastic price. The ProSounds campaign already hit the initial fundraising goal so there is no risk and picking up the M-4s for $87.00 versus the MSRP of $139.00 is a smoking deal that I personally would recommend everyone take advantage of. The M-Series Electronic Ear Muffs from ProSounds are a tremendous value for the money regardless of what you pay for them. Of course keeping a few extra dollars in your pocket for ammo is always a great deal.
