NOT SURE? TRY OUR Product Selector Tool

In case there’s any confusion, let’s set the record straight: upland hunting with unprotected ears causes hearing loss, which impacts overall health and wellness and ruins the hunting experience. And that’s not all. Recent studies show that people with hearing loss are more likely to develop dementia, Alzheimers and other chronic health problems.*

So why do 86% of hunters NOT use hearing protection? Previous products have distorted the sounds of voices and flushing birds, 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 surrounding sounds are clear and natural while AlphaShield Compression reduces loud gunshots 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 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 hunting environment. With STO, voices are clear, and the most important sounds of the upland are enhanced including bird flushes, dog ecollars, and cow bells.

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 as well as in other daily activities that require better hearing.

Research

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.

Pheasant Hunter

I was hesitant to purchase these because of the price and a bad experience with other electronic hearing protection. After several trips out hunting I have been very happy with the performance. They do an extremely good job cancelling wind noise and when walking through knee high brush the sound is not over amplified like other brands. Wish I had these years ago when I first started hunting. Customer service was great answering all my question and very fast shipping once ordered! Thanks Tetra for wonderful product. Looking forward to years of use.

Excellent

I worked my way through several different models of different brands — ranging from $300 > $500. I could have saved a lot of $ if i went straight to these to begin with. Tetra is the only pair that doesn’t have the high pitch squeal that is so common. Tetra provides great hearing for the birds and talking, and great protection from the shots.
