NOT SURE? TRY OUR Product Selector Tool

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 simply 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.

Our custom products provide the most personalized fit and protection available.


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, 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.

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.

I CAN HEAR!!

I love love love this product. I hunt waterfowl every single day from Canada to Arkansas - I knew my hearing was going bad and I was constantly having headaches after a hunt. The day I put my Tetra’s in - I could hear birds farther away than before. I can hear myself calling. I can hear the end of the blind whispering. I CAN HEAR.

Tetra Waterfowl Custom Shield

Product works excellent and as advertised. Wore them during our teal season in Texas and they performed flawlessly. I was most impressed with the wind canceling ability. Fit is great and they are comfortable to leave in throughout the hunt. Money well spent, would highly recommend.

Best sound protection around

These are great for hunting and sporting clays. Completely blocks the wind and gun noise while allowing talking and even duck calls

Worth The Money!

I delayed purchasing these for quite a while, and that was a mistake. I have shot a approximately 6 rounds of sporting clays/ 5 stand and used them at my day job as a pilot. Let me just say, they are EXCELLENT! They are comfy to wear and do a fantastic job of either amplifying or dampening outside noise. I haven’t worn them on an extremely windy day, but so far up to 10 mph I haven’t had any wind noise. Again, I’ve been very impressed with my pair.
