Hey, when you get the hearing help, be sure that it will block the noise when you fire that rifle. Even one shot can damage your hearing, and once damaged, it won't get better. Take it from me, a double hearing aid wearing guy, it ain't fun not hearing so protect what you got. You can't get anymore! I'm not kidding either. This is real serious stuff.

No hearing aids yet,but on the verge.See what waranty,if any with Walker's.Well, might see if there's a website.Protect what hearing you have left.Can use a couple.But money being tight for now,is out of the question.Tinnitus-ringing of the ears,is a constant 24-7-365.Both of my ears are bad.Upper HF is permanently gone.It don't get better with time.In all gun cases,I have ear plugs from work.Same ones you buy at the gun stores.My best to you.

The Walkers Game ear will protect you from the muzzle blast very well. But I noticed very soon after getting mine you sure need one for each ear or it sounds like everything is coming from one direction.Good luck on your decision.

Rude Robert, I bought the Walker Game ear Digital pair last year and love them tremendously. They amplify sounds and protect you from gun blasts instantly. I thought they'd be a waste of money when I bought them. I got my rifle (300 winmag) back from my gunsmith who installed a custom muzzle brake and did some trigger work. Anyhow, I normally only used the foam earplugs at the range. When I first shot my 300, the blast was so loud that my ears began throbbing. After the 20th shot, I cleaned the barrel and packed it up. When I took out my foam earplugs, my ears were ringing. Although my shoulder loves the new muzzle brake, my ears do not. Well, I tried several cheap models and none of them really worked. One of the hearing specialist at the VA hospital shoots skeet and trap and told me about the Walker Game earplugs. He told me not to go cheap as my hearing will never come back once it's gone. I bought the Digital ones ($600 online) and when I tested them at the range with my 300, I was a little afraid to shoot that first round but after shooting my 300 and standing behind a guy shooting a .50 cal Armalite (military of course), I don't have to worry too much about my hearing. Only problem I have with them is that if they are turn up to max sound amplification, the batteries don't last more than 2 or 3 outings. I carry plenty of spares. Definitely get a pair if you want to hear in stereo. They're awesome to hunt with. I can hear deer walking thru the brush from 50 plus yards. Invest in some if you value your hearing!!!

thx for the input. i bought one yeturday night. took it out today while scouting for deer. i liked them, the only thing is that when they work lose and fall out its time consuming to get it back in. i do hear a lot better though.im thinking about dont laugh but to put a little duck take on my ear to keep in on. i want to get another one. i only have the 150 one. but it works fine any louder and ill hear my bladder fluid moving around :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:
