Saturday September 10th, I attended a beginner pistol class taught by Chris Yamate and SMGLee with 21 other eager students; and what better place to test and evaluate a pair of Walker’s Razor Slim electronic noise reducing hearing protection? I wore the earmuffs over my ball-cap, and found that they fit over both the cap and my ears quite well, and were also very comfortable.
Some of the EarPros at the SMGLee-Yamate pistol course: the featuring Walker’s Razor Slim in the center, with the Peltor Sport Tactical 100 on the right, and the very popular Howard Leight Impact Sport on the left.
Once powered on, the Walker’s Razor Slim’s omnidirectional microphones pick up the soft sounds of people talking from all directions, while canceling out the high-frequency sound of gunfire. I spent several hours on a firing line with 21 other shooters, and was quite pleased that I could hear all of the instructor’s audible instructions with no extra effort. When the range would go hot, they did an excellent job cancelling out the high-frequency sounds of gun fire.
These earmuffs have an easy to use volume control dial, and omnidirectional microphones that pick up and amplify the softer sounds like voices for distances well over 25 feet away, and then cancel out the high-frequency sounds of gun fire as close as arms length from your ears.
The Walker’s Razor electronic earmuffs are powered by two AAA batteries, and the battery life seems to be good. The manufacturer didn’t list the battery runtime but my estimation is around 50 hours or so.
The Walker’s Razor Slim fold up into a nice little compact bundle for easy storage.
