A gentleman raised this issue over on 16.com. I'm on something of a mission to save what hearing I have left and was curious if anybody here knows anything about these folks or... if there are additional options they might suggest?


I finally broke down and got fitted for hearing aids last week at Costco (super deal!). Got sick of saying "huh" all the time to my wife. Too-many rock concerts and sets of uncapped headers in my history, that and almost zero protection while shooting for the 1st half of my life has tinnitus with me almost constantly anymore

Figuring on playing the long game now. What don't I know?

I can't remember the name of mine off hand, but one suggestion I would make is to look for active plugs that have a recharging case.

my brother and I both use active hearing protection, but his require new batteries like a hearing aid. mine have a case that recharges the plugs while they are in it. the case battery lasts a very long time between charges, so I really only charge the case once in a while.

Edit: mine are Otto brand. Small waterproof case. Have been great for a few years. For the first time, I am seeing that one of the plugs is not consistently connecting to the case.

With that caveat, what you see is case at 80% battery, left ear plug at 100,% and right at 50%. Has been sitting in the closet since Jan 31.

The only things I would see as an upgrade to these would be a custom molded ear piece, and bluetooth for ease of accepting of calls, etc while shooting. And, now I realize, perhaps the longevity... definitely disappointing to see the one earpiece not connecting well.

If you are married, why would you want hearing aids?
