RedHead Hearing Enhancer ITE Ear Bud System
I played drums for many years so my hearing is not the best. I didn't want to spend $150 plus on another brand of hearing enhancer, and I found these at BPS on sale. I figured for the price it was worth it, even if they weren't that great. If there's any wind at all, even from a slight breeze, these will pick up it up and drown out everything else. It will also pick up distant traffic noise and make it sound like you're sitting right next to the road. Great in a quiet area as a hearing enhancer though. And don't forget to take the batteries out when you're finished using them. It doesn't have an on/off switch and turning the volume to 0 will still drain the batteries. Keep your expectations reasonable and this isn't a bad product for the price.

Not bad for the price
I've used these duck hunting and had what I would call an average result. For the price, I do not think that there is anything out there that is better. They have a good bit of wind noise, which is somewhat irritating and there needs to be a set of instructions included with the units but overall they are performing pretty well. I keep them in an empty pill bottle in by hunting coat, so that they are always there when I need them.

ITS OK FOR THE PRICE
Used it for a Muflon hunt on Oct. 20-21. Sound was amplified good enough for me. Sound when my gun was fired was a little to loud for me, but didn't ring my ears. Need to work on that, but for the price its worth it.

still under review
Yeah, there are some issues. There are no real instructions, but would I have read them if there had been? ;-) Yeah, the battery size is NOT what is listed on the web site. There are 4 pairs included though. You can't turn it off by turning to "0". I found that out the hard was as well. They do amplify sound fairly well. They are not perfectly without noise, but at this price, they sound pretty good. I have not tried to use them around a gun yet. That will be my ultimate test. I had to turn them to a 1.5 out of 5, or it was TOO loud for my taste. If they will cut off when I shoot, they will be a GREAT addition to my hunting gear. I should be able to hear ducks wings better than ever!
