Take ear plugs with you, hunters
Monday, October 12, 2020
OK, hunters. We know you’re busy at this time of year, so we’ll keep this short.
Protect your hearing.
We know many of you have never worn ear protection while hunting. Oh, sure, some of you wear ear plugs or earmuffs at the gun range, but not in the woods. What’s the difference? A couple of shots in the woods vs. dozens of shots at the range? Doesn’t matter.
“A single blast from a rifle or shotgun can be over 150 decibels. That single shot is loud enough to cause permanent hearing loss, affecting your ability to hear deer walking through the leaves and to understand your friends and family,” says Dr. Andrea Federman, an audiologist with Hearing Center BayCare Clinic.
“Your hearing is valuable. It’s tied to your social, emotional, cognitive and physical well-being.”
Phonak Serenity Choice Hunting & Shooting ear plugs protect your hearing. They’re available from Hearing Center BayCare Clinic. They’re designed to reduce the impact of gunshot noise to safe levels less likely to cause long-term hearing damage. They also allow comfortable fit, ventilation of the ears and preserve the ability to hear relevant sounds and speech while hunting.
Not a hunter? A variety of Phonak Serenity Choice models are available from Hearing Center BayCare Clinic. Designed specifically for work, motorsports, music, sleep or comfort, each model offers multiple sizes for the best possible fit and acoustic filters. Guard your hearing without the time and expense of custom protection.
