Everyone knows that gunfire is loud, but very few people understand the repercussions that shooting can have on their hearing until it’s too late.
The trouble is, exposure to even a single unsuppressed gunshot can, and often does, lead to permanent hearing damage.
Although it can still be heard, suppressed gunfire helps mitigate noise complaints from those who live near shooting ranges and hunting land. Suppressors reduce the noise of a gunshot by an average of 20 – 35 dB, which is roughly the same as earplugs or earmuffs.


Suppressors allow hunters to maintain full situational awareness, while still protecting their hearing. By decreasing the overall sound signature, suppressors help to preserve the hearing of recreational shooters, hunters, and hunting dogs around the world.
