Walker’s Game Ear Goes Thin, Adds New Colors With Razor Series

Walkers Game Ear Razor Series ear muffs

There are too things wrong with hearing protection today. First, the units are too big. How many times have you (personally), or a shooter you were helping, touched off the trigger on a rifle or shotgun only to cringe because the stock of the gun pushed against the muff and broke the seal? This is not a universal problem, but in the case of hearing protection, size matters. To give shooters a better level of protection, Walker’s Game Ear has slimmed down with the introduction of the Razor Series.

Walker’s “Razor” thin muffs were engineered from the ground up with the goal of having the lowest possible profile without compromising the hearing protection and amplification properties of the muff. Delivering an impressive noise reduction rating (NRR) of 23dB, the Razor series are sure to protect your hearing without interfering with your shot or pursuit of game, allowing you to concentrate on your target. The Razor series also feature Walker’s new comfort fit headband for all day shooting, and come in a host of color options.

Speaking of color, that brings us to the second thing wrong with hearing protection—it’s boring! Sure, there are those who prefer pink and a few offerings already available, but what about us who live for camo or want our accessories to match our FDE AR or Glock? The answer is simple thanks to the Razor Series which is available in a stylish Flat Dark Earth (FDE), Kryptek Typhon, Black, and Teal, or Pink accent pattern, all featuring a smooth matte finish. MSRP $69.99

  1. I’ll definitely be looking into these – I don’t shoot my AR nearly enough since it keeps pushing the muff up and my hearing is bad enough to begin with.

  2. OK, this is a for-real question. Typical GOOD non-electronic ear muff style hearing protection = low 30’s DB noise reduction rating. Typical electronic version = low 20’s. Is the noise reduction of the electronic muffs REALLY effective? What are we giving up for the sake of hearing “normally” or better when not actually firing?

    1. I own both a 31 NRR “plain” muff and a low-20’s NRR electronic muff. There are times when the electronic muffs need to be switched off to keep the noise level comfortable, but with the microphones off the noise reduction feels essentially the same as the plain muffs.

    2. It depends. For me, an AR outdoor or 9mm indoor, any is fine on or off. Otoh, My father in law has a WWII .303 British enfield jungle gun with a short(for an Enfield) barrel and a conical flash hider that set my ears ringing with a low 20’s nrr active muff. On or off didnt matter. For that gun, I now wear plugs and muffs.

    3. Electronic muffs are really designed for users that NEED to hear their environment, whether it’s range commands in a shooting competition or radio/team comms in leo and military environments. Your average shooter standing at a range really doesn’t need these muffs. That being said, almost everyone I know doubles up on electronic muffs. If you get audiophilic earplugs, you can get ~40db of cumulative noise reduction, while still being able to hear normally.
