I’ve been shooting for a long time and always seem to forget my hearing protection, even when i have it with me. Having my customs has changed this for me because I put them in usually before I even start shooting, sometimes at my house, and then keep them in most of the day. They act as a hearing aid so i can hear normal sound, actually enhanced, then when i shoot or use my power tools my hearing is protected. they are super comfortable as well. I strongly recommend finding a way to add these to your tool kit. Especially for hunting, that is where i have always forgotten my hearing protection. And that one or two shoots I take at a deer or elk and I have ringing in my ears for a long time. I plan on adding a muzzle brake onto my rifle so I will really want to make sure I have these in my ears when i shoot that rifle.
