Etymotic GunSport Elite Electronic Earplugsety-er125-gse
GSE Rechargeable Earplugs are ideal for gun sport enthusiasts who need protection from firearm blasts, and for people who need protection from loud continuous noise. GunSport Elite allows natural hearing when no background noise is present, provides sudden impact protection from muzzle blasts and other high impact sounds and gradually protects against loud noise from vehicles or machinery.
Why electronic hearing protection?
Passive hearing protection is cheaper, and involves no electronic circuit or batteries. However, it is not selective in its attenuation, lowering both low and high sounds. That results in conversation and other important yet not too-loud sounds being drowned and lost.
Electronic hearing protection uses a battery powered electronic circuit that samples your surrounding sound levels in real-time. Safe sound levels are passed through to your eardrums as-is, but the moment sound levels become too high – the hearing protection kicks in and attenuates the sound levels that reach your eardrums.
That means you can keep your hearing protection in at all times in the shooting range. When talking to your instructor – you’ll hear them clearly and naturally when no loud background noise is present. When you or someone nearby shoots, or continuous noise from vehicles or machinery becomes present – you are protected automatically!
GSE Rechargeable earplugs use Etymotic’s ACCU•Technology with high-definition balanced-armature drivers, high-sensitivity microphones and proprietary wide-dynamic-range compression K•AMP® signal processing.

Automatic Hearing Protection + Blast Protection Mode:
- Allows natural hearing up to 60dB (normal conversation or background music levels)
- Provides 15 dB of automatic hearing protection between 70dB to 115dB (vehicle traffic, power tools, lawn mower)
- 40 dB noise reduction to protects from blasts and other very loud noises 120dB and over
Hearing Enhancement + Blast Protection Mode:
- Amplifies up to 5X in the 40dB to 60dB range (soft to normal conversation levels)
- 35 dB noise reduction to protects from blasts and other very loud noises 120dB and over
Which mode is right for me?
Both modes will protect your hearing from dangerously loud noise levels and blasts, such as gun shots. The modes differ in safe noise levels, such as normal conversation. Hearing Protection mode will let the conversation in your ears, as if you are wearing no protection. The Hearing Enhancement mode will behave as a hearing aid and amplify the conversation.
The right mode for you depends on whether you need or want conversation enhancement or not.
