irearm noise ranges from 140dB to 175dB. Frequent exposure to loud noises results in hearing impairment and even loss. Your hearing can slowly deteriorate whenever you visit the shooting range or go hunting without the right protection. Shooting, whether for sport or for a line of work, requires specialised hearing protection devices because sound plays an important role in keeping you safe.
Ultimate Ear designs and develops custom earplugs for shooting purposes. Total
noise-cancelling earplugs put you at risk as they compromise your alertness. Shooters should use custom-made earplugs that still will reduce gunshot noise but protect hearing while allowing you to be alert and aware of your surroundings.

Bespoke ear defenders, made from our soft ‘squidgy’ material. These plugs are extremely comfortable to wear, and flexible in the ear. Filter earplugs protect your ears while attenuating loud sounds.

Recommended for shooters who want protection from harmful noise but still want to hear the trap release, beaters etc.
Custom moulded ear defenders featuring a unique filter that allows normal speech through while blocking harmful noise out. The advantages of this product over normal ear protection is, unlike ear muffs they don’t knock on the stock of a fire arm. Also unlike muffs they let the outer ear breathe and create a secure seal so sound can’t leak. One of its most appealing features is that the valve allows normal sound in, but when a gun is fired it reacts to shut the harmful noise out.

Similar to the Proflex DX range, the classic DX5 offers 5 different modes, the Classic DX3 3 different gaming modes and the DX1 the single optimised mode. The Classic DX range is available in 5 different shell colour options
The DX1 is an electronic custom earplug for shooting containing a single optimised shooting mode level of hearing protection, 25dB SNR.The CENS DX1 is available in the full range of metalik battery lid colours and contains a contains a push button volume control.

Clay mode- This mode is optimised for environments where guns are fired at a faster rate due to nearby shooters.
Tactical Mode- Designed for fast action shooting after a gunshot. Output is reduced after gunshots, before returning to normal so shooters can communicate with their team.
Game mode- This mode is optimised for game shooters. Once a gunshot is fired the module reacts, reducing output levels to keep the user protected from harmful noise. Immediately after the sound level returns to normal allowing the user to hear quarry.
The DX5 is an electronic custom earplug for shooting containing five different modes: game, clay, range, wireless comms, and hunter
The CENS DX5 is available in the full range of metalik colours and contains a digital multi-switch for program and volume changes.
Game Mode- This program is optimised for game shooters. Following a gunshot, the device activates reducing output levels to keep the shooter safe from harmful noise. The sound level then immediately returns to normal, allowing the user to hear approaching quarry. A single microphone wind noise reduction algorithm is initiated in the program. Clay Mode- This program is optimised for the clay shooter where guns are typically fired at a faster rate with other shooters nearby also firing, leaving the user exposed to more prolonged loud levels. A single microphone wind noise reduction algorithm is initiated in the program.
Range Mode- This program is optimised for those users firing on indoor ranges or with large calibre weapons. Ambient awareness is still provided although the reduced output levels may degrade close conversation. Double protection is still advised in this type of environment.
Wireless Comms- This program is optimised for general shooting, providing ambient awareness but with the added feature of wireless audio input via the supplied neck loop.
Hunter Mode- This program is optimised for the hunter/stalker. The amplification of quieter sounds is reduced compared to the previous programs in order that the sound of footsteps on dry forestation and grass are reduced so as not to be annoying to the user. A single microphone wind noise reduction algorithm is initiated in the program.
