Mike provides us a video demonstration of Otis Technology FLUGZ Hearing Protection buds.
USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In the world of shooting sports, protecting our hearing is one of the most important safety measures we as shooters can take.
According to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, people who don’t wear hearing protection can begin to suffer significant hearing loss with just one shot, in the correct conditions. Now I don’t know about you, but permanent hearing loss is not something I want to risk.
The best form of hearing protection is the one that fits the best in your ear canal. Now, the cheap foam and rubber ear plugs can protect your ears properly, but they often are uncomfortable and users can have trouble with proper fitment. And most custom higher-end ear plugs can cost a small fortune. Times have changed. Otis Technology has developed a custom moldable ear plug that is designed to be molded right in your own home.
The Otis Technology FLUGZ Hearing Protection buds are an affordable and custom set of ear plugs that are formed, fit, and finished in less than 2 minutes. They feature An NRR rating of 21 dB (Noise Reduction Rating), they come sealed in their own combo storage case/steamer and include a convenient lanyard.
The molding process is very simple, just place the FLUGZ into the included steamer cup, fill with water and place in the microwave for 30-40 seconds. Once the microwave is finished, remove the cup, drain the water and form the now pliable and tacky ear plugs into the correct ears (red is right – black is left). If for whatever reason you are unsatisfied with the fit, just repeat the process as many times as you feel necessary to gain the best fit possible.
After using these at the range, I can confidently say that the FLUGZ do their job, and do it well. They are light, comfortable and showed absolutely no signs of loosening or dislodging.
Thirty-six million Americans suffer from hearing loss. One in every three have developed their hearing loss from exposure to damaging noises. Don’t become someone in this statistic. Protect your ears.
FLUGZ retail at $24.99 ( less online )and are made right here in the USA.
