For years I’d seen folks with the around-the-neck style bluetooth earbuds for listening to music, and wondered why there weren’t similar options for shooters. Well, now there are. Walker has the Razor X — a noise cancelling earbud headset — which fits the bill. The around-the-neck design rests comfortably out of the way, to not interfere with cheek weld on shotguns, AR-pattern rifles, or traditional rifles.
Provided with the unit are several sizes of both 16mm and 12mm plugs, depending on what fits your ears the best. With the 16mm plugs, the Razor X provides an impressive 31dB NRR. For comparison the widely popular Howard Leight over-the-ear noise cancelling muffs only have a 22dB NRR.
Proper fit is required to achieve maximum NRR and comfort, and the proper placement can easily be achieved by following the example set forth in the following video:
The omni-directional microphones provide excellent sound quality, with the ability to accurately determine the location of sounds with ease.
Batteries run for 10 hours, and can be charged with any micro USB cord. A wall adapter and cord is included within the packaging.
If you are looking to try a new piece of gear, or need to replace some worn-out powered muffs, look no further. I highly recommend the Razor X by Walker. Get yours today at http://www.gsmoutdoors.com/shopping/Razor-X-P841.aspx
