Last year we visited the Howard Leight booth to bring you some additional info on their line of hearing protection including their Impact Sport electronic Earmuff. We recently followed that up with full review of the Impact Sport and we are giving away a few free pairs of them over the next few months. Click here to read more about that and to enter the drawings.
For 2012, Howard Leight is releasing a brand new electronic earmuff called the Impact Pro. As of Shot Show, there are only 2 sets in the entire country but I’m told they should be shipping this Spring. The new earmuffs are a bit larger than the Impact Sport but they are specifically designed for handgun shooters who do not necessarily need a low profile earmuff. They feature the same electronics and auxiliary audio connections as the sport version but do a better job of handling the noise reduction of handguns, especially with indoor ranges.
They are also offering a new Sync earmuff which incorporates a bass chamber for those wanting larger audio from their plugged in electronics without the need for the external microphones. These are a great option for those who want to cut out the loud noises around them and still be able to jam out to music.
Lastly, Howard Leight is offering the red, white, and blue Superleight earplugs which will be used by the USA shooting teams in upcoming Olympic Games.
