In case there is any confusion, let’s set the record straight: duck hunting with unprotected ears causes hearing loss. As hearing doctors at TETRA, we see what years of waterfowl hunting does to our patients. Recent studies show that people with hearing loss are more likely to develop dementia, Alzheimers and other chronic health problems.* Hearing loss impacts overall health and wellness, and ruins the hunting experience.
So why do 86% of hunters NOT use hearing protection? Previous products have distorted the sound of the call, either over-amplified everything or blocked out your surroundings, and just weren’t comfortable. We solved those problems with the TETRA Shield Series. Using our patent-pending Specialized Target Optimization (STO) voices and calling are clear and natural while AlphaShield Compression reduces loud sounds to safe levels.
AlphaShield is a small, extremely comfortable, one-size-fits-all solution. AlphaShield provides great comfort and great protection without the need for an ear impression.
TETRA isn’t just hearing protection, it’s hearing perfection.

Our hearing devices feature patent-pending Specialized Target Optimization™ (STO). STO is the world’s first hearing technology that isolates and enhances the exact frequencies needed to improve hearing for your specific hunting environment. With STO, voices are clear, calling sounds natural, wood duck squeals, whistling wings, and mallard drakes are all easily audible.
TETRA products instantly shut down and instantly recover for sudden loud noises, like gunshots, providing the wearer full protection at the very moment it’s needed. For more sustained loud inputs, like loud calling, AlphaShield Compression® limits the overall output to a safe level, then returns to normal amplification once the loud input has stopped. Never miss a sound you want to hear, and protect your hearing for life.
ClearComm™ is our proprietary algorithm that accentuates human speech while minimizing noises and distractions that occur outside of the frequency range of human voices. ClearComm is useful for better understanding speech and whispers of hunting partners, hearing speech on the range, as well as in other daily activities that require better hearing.

Hearing and the Brain
Research at Johns Hopkins University suggests that more hearing loss increases the risk of dementia. In one study, people with hearing loss were 24% more likely to have Alzheimer’s.*
With hearing loss, our brains have to work much harder to make sense of what is being said, and even harder to filter out speech from unwanted background noise. Simply trying to understand conversations requires more mental energy and concentration.
If basic conversations take up most of our mental energy, there is less opportunity for our brains to sort out and store other information.
At TETRA, our goal is to minimize hearing loss for hunters and shooters, because research shows if we reduce hearing loss, we can also reduce the chance of getting dementia and Alzheimer’s.

Argentina test run
I just returned from a 6-day Argentina duck hunt which involved lots of shooting. I used my Waterfowl AlphaShields the entire time and am pleased to report that they made a delightful experience even better because I came away without ear pain or ringing.
Spent 4 days in Argentina hunting dove,pigeon, perdize and ducks. First time using these and was very impressed. My two concerns were ambient noise and stability in the ears with the movement of hunting and the volume of shooting. Stayed in place very well and while not quite the “bb gun” level of noise suppression still got a very adequate. The main thing that impressed me was the function as hearing enhancement I wear $6000 hearing aids every day and found these to be on par with those in many ways. Even wore them to dinner at the lodge to help in conversation with the other hunters and staff. If I had 3 thumbs they would all be up!!
I have not used them yet. I received them and there are no instructions with them. For the amount of money I spent this is very upsetting. I do not feel I should have to research to find out how to use them.
Great gift! Looking forward to using them more next season.
Tetra products are absolutely everything they are hyped up to be. Customer service is spot on and the fact that they are trying to help hunters " hear the hunt " is definitely displaying in there product.
