Custom Hearing Protection for Duck Hunting Waterfowl CustomShield
$1,099.00 / Pair Why the price?
TETRA Hearing™ devices use a similar chip and digital noise reduction that you would pay $5,000 for in hearing aids. TETRA devices give you a premium hearing experience, but feel like wearing nothing at all.
Advanced hearing devices optimized for most the most critical sounds for the waterfowl hunter while providing hearing protection from loud calling and gunshots. Custom molded for the most personalized fit possible.
Waterfowl programming also available on Multi-Pursuit CustomShield.
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.

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.

I actually bought the devices for turkey, but had the waterfowl loaded too. Noise cancellation was great, but since I already wear hearing aids with a 10 range setting, I compared the this product to what I can hear with my full time hearing aids. I found them worth the purchase, but far short of my full time hearing aids for depth perception and clarity
Not much better then any other expensive protection. Have trouble adjusting out the feed back on both sides especially when you are wearing over the head face camo. The white back ground noise is not reduced to the level i was expecting.Still Tetra is better than any of the other devices i have, the fit is better and ergonomics are better.
These are the best most comfortable hearing protection I have ever owned. I love the fact that I have a custom hearing profile for my particular hearing. Calls sound natural and I was hearing ducks coming in before my hunting partners. One other thing that was a plus... sunglasses or eyeglasses can be worn without discomfort because they are in ear.. not like my old over the ear model. I would def recommend these for someone who is seriously about protecting their hearing and giving it a little boat in the blind!
From customer service to quality of product, I give this a 10!!
I found purchasing and websites good and easy to use. After that communication became weak. I was never asked for ear impressions for these. I email and got an immediate response, (within 10 minutes), which was great. I waited 4 weeks and emailed again to ask about delivery. I was told that they would ship in about a week. This would have been nice to know approximate delivery date when I ordered them. I received the plugs and found them to be really nice. Sound is fantastic on these plugs. Sometimes feel that I do not have them in when talking with my partner.
