Walker's Silencer Bluetooth Ear Buds Review
Walker’s Game Ear Silencer Bluetooth Rechargeable Ear Buds come with a USB charging dock with an integrated lithium battery.

We here at Shooting Times are always on the lookout for products that enhance one’s shooting pleasure. We are particularly interested in items that improve safety. Safeguarding one’s hearing while shooting by using quality hearing protection is especially important. Plus, good earmuffs and earplugs that effectively reduce gunshots’ reports definitely make shooting more fun. Recently, I discovered Walker’s Game Ear has new Bluetooth-compatible electronic ear buds that are designed for comfort and high noise reduction.

The model I’ve been working with is the Silencer Bluetooth Rechargeable Ear Buds, and it employs a lot of cool technology that I’ll get to in a minute. But first, the feature I like the most about these ear buds is they are rechargeable and come with a USB charging dock with an integrated lithium battery. And in case you’re wondering, the USB cable is included. According to Walker’s Game Ear, the average battery life is 14 hours or 4 hours when Bluetooth streaming. In the interest of full disclosure, they didn’t stay charged that long (closer to 3 hours), but that wasn’t a problem for me because I usually don’t spend more than 3 hours per session at the shooting range.

These ear buds use advanced digital circuitry and have four settings: Clear Voice (noise filtering), Universal, High Frequency Boost (boosts frequency above 1kHz), and Power Boost (boosts incoming audio to be twice as loud as Universal mode). They provide, as Walker’s puts it, “dynamic wind noise reduction” and “variable gunshot suppression.” Again in the interest of full dislcosure, I have to admit that wind noise was not totally eliminated during my tests. The ear buds have auto shut-off as well as voice prompts, and you can use the free Walker’s app to control the program settings, monitor battery levels, adjust volume, and change auto shut-off time from your mobile device. You can also answer/reject phone calls and play music from your mobile device via Bluetooth.

Three sizes of Sure-Lock sizing fins and three sizes of foam tips allow the ear buds to fit a wide range of ear sizes. The Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is 23 decibels.


I’ve said it before, if you haven’t given much thought to your hearing protection, you should. Good hearing protection is an important accessory all shooters should be using. Walker’s offers a whole line of hearing protectors for shooters, including the Silencer Bluetooth Ear Buds as well as electronic muffs, passive muffs, and earplugs. I think the company slogan—Protect It Or Lose It—says it all.
