Available in early 2017, the PELTOR Sport Tactical 300 and PELTOR Sport Tactical 500 Electronic Hearing Protectors feature new proprietary 3M SMART technology that automatically adjusts to your environment and firearm for customized protection. The technology measures the energy in gunshot noise as well as echoes in the environment and automatically sets suppression time for optimized comfort and communication.

“We are excited to introduce the new PELTOR Sport Tactical Electronic Hearing Protectors at SHOT Show this year,” Lindsay Adams of 3M Safety said. “Our team of specialists has developed two hearing protectors designed specifically for shooters and hunters looking for high-performance products that fit great and are comfortable for extended wear.”

The PELTOR Sport Tactical Electronic Hearing Protectors are ideal for both indoor and outdoor shooters with Clear Voice Tracking technology to isolate voices from background noise for clearer conversations and hearing of commands:

  • The PELTOR Sport Tactical 300 Electronic Hearing Protector is mobile device compatible and has a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24.
  • The PELTOR Sport Tactical 500 Electronic Hearing Protector is Bluetooth® capable for two-way communication and offers an NRR of 26.

Both new electronic hearing protectors feature foldable vented headbands for heat release and increased comfort, low-profile cups with rubber bumpers and cushioned cutouts for long gun use, and durable recessed microphones to reduce wind noise.

PELTOR Sport will be exhibiting its latest innovations at booth #1625 on January 17– 19 from 8:30 a.m.5:30 p.m. and on January 20 from 8:30 a.m.4:00 p.m.
