Hearing Protection: Decibullz Custom-Molded Percussive Filters

Hearing protection is an important accessory all shooters should be using.

Hearing protection is an important accessory all shooters should be using. I've had mixed luck with hearing protectors of all sorts over the years. I've tried just about all types. I've used foam plugs and foam plugs under earmuffs. I've tried standard earmuffs and electronic earmuffs. I've even tried behind-the-head earmuffs and solar-powered earmuffs. But I had never tried a set of custom-molded earplugs. Until now. I just spent some time at the shooting range with a set of Decibullz Custom-Molded Percussive Filters, which I molded to my ears myself. They fit, and they work.


Kyle Kirkpatrick developed Decibullz. About six years ago he was fed up with earphones that wouldn't stay in, sounded awful, or hurt his ears. So he developed an earphone that did work by molding it to the exact shape of his ear. Unlike other custom-fit earphones that cost from $300 to $2,000, Kyle's is priced at well under $100.

After consulting audio engineers, material specialists, and high-level athletes to develop and test hundreds of designs, formulas, and prototypes, he released the easy-to-use and affordable Decibullz. According to the company, Decibullz are the first thermo-fit custom-molded earphones, and they are also the only custom earphones that can be remolded.

Now Decibullz DIY Thermo-Fit Molded Earpieces have been combined with the new cutting-edge percussive impulse filter technology. Decibullz Percussive Filters protect users from the peak sound pressure of gun shots, artillery fire, and explosions, suppressing them to safe levels and protecting users from hearing damage. Custom molding is easy: simply warm the earpieces in water and shape to your ears. The earpieces can be reheated and reshaped if needed. And unlike electronic hearing protection, Decibullz Filters never need batteries.


Included are two sets of Decibullz Thermo-Fit Earpieces; two Percussive Filters; a premium, hard carrying case; S, M, L Max Isolation foam tips; S, M, L, triple flange silicone tips; and instructions on how to custom mold them.

The Custom Molded Earplugs have a continuous noise reduction rating of 31. They are designed for consistent noise reduction across all decibel ranges. The Percussive Filters are designed to block out loud percussive noises while still allowing ambient noise to pass through.

MSRP: $74.99
