Our Technology

Specialized Target Optimization
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 environment. With our AlphaShield Range products, STO provides clear voices for your shooting partners and range officers, while maintaining natural levels of sounds for the environment around you.

All of our products use advanced digital processing to instantly shut down and instantly recover for sudden loud noises, like gunshots, providing the wearer protection based on the fit of the device. 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 talking with shooting 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.

Long range rifle competition

I've used my Tetra custom shield 90's at the practice range and in a weekend long match since recently receiving them. The fit is very comfortable; no discomfort with them being in my ear all day long. The suppression of rifle shots heard when on the line shooting or scoring is impressive, while at the same time, i was still able to hear my shooter or scorer clearly. I was also able to clearly hear the coach call for shots during team competition. Will get better at adjusting the volume and cycling between the four programs with more experience; the button and dial are quite small (which is understandable given the compact size of these units). The Custom Shield provides me the hearing protection/noise suppression of high tech over-the- head ear muffs, and because Custom Shield fits in the ear, allows me to wear a broad brim hat all day long, protecting my face and neck from the sun. I will note that while the shot sound compression is outstanding, the sound of voices in conversation is "tinny". Perhaps an improvement could be made to improve the fidelity in Clear Comm mode. Overall, very satisfied.

First Use

I used my new Range CustomShields 2 days ago at the gun range. At first I had some trouble with getting the right loudness setting trying to minimize the gun shots versus being able to hear normal ambient sounds. But after some playing with them, I got them to where they worked well. Comfort and fit were great, no issues at all. I wore them for about 4.5 hours straight. The only issues I had were sometimes the ambient sounds sounded a little tinny and once in a while one of the monitors seemed to just turn silent. Every once in a while a monitor would seem like there was no sound coming through it, like it was off (it wasn't). This happened with both left and right monitors.

Best Ears Ever!

I purchased two set of Range Customshield 90 for my wife and I to use at the range. They are the best and wearing them for hours is not a problem. They are that comfortable. Some day when they wear out, I know the place to get new sets! Thanks Tetra

You can hear everything and then some

Changed from MSA ear muffs for trap shooting to Tetra. Tetra is way more sensitive to ambient sounds while protecting against range muzzle sound. It takes a little getting used to using the volume control, especially with gloves on. Sound pick up is omni directional that is crisp and amplified. I have to turn the volume down so I can’t hear people behind me yapping while trying to concentrate on my targets at the trap station. Units are very comfortable but obviously freezing weather does not keep ears warm like an over the ear ****, however now I can wear a hoodie to keep not only ears warm but head warm and still hear well. I can see if you are wing shooting these would be second to none in amplifying any bird or animal sounds. Come to think about it, these would be great for Audubon bird watchers.
