Upland AlphaShield $749.00 / Pair

Upland programming also available on Multi-Pursuit AlphaShield.

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.

  • Extremely comfortable to wear all day

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.

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.

Great product

The tetra upland are every thing they say they are. Amazing product that you can wear comfortably all day long. Being programmed for your individual hearing is great. They are definitely worth the price. I hunt with guys that have others brands and you’re trying to hunt and look back and they are constantly having to adjust them. Put theses in and go hunt.

Works as advertised. Would be nice if they had a small lanyard. Just to stop the chance of losing one of the ear pro.

I use them every hunt, they work just as described

I use these every time I hunt, and get in around 30 days of pheasant hunting a year. They work wonderfully for protecting my ears and even hunting in 40 mph wind, they do a good job of blocking the wind noise picked up on the microphone. The fit is excellent and they are easy to use. My critiques are minor and do not bother me enough to stop using these. I started getting tinnitus at 26, so now I always wear some form of hearing protection every time I am around gunshot, and these are by far the best I have found. First, while sound is transmitted from microphone into the earpiece, my hearing with these products in while walking through the field is not as good as if I was not wearing anything. I hear better than when I use foam ear plugs, but find conversations to be harder to maintain while walking in line through dry food plots. Perhaps I can send them in after the season to have the volume levels adjusted, as I run them at the highest volume all the time. Second, I was surprised to find there is no on/off switch, but popping the battery compartment open will turn the units off. Bottom line, buy them if you can afford them because you will use all the time and protect your hearing before you lose it. If the volume was increased to where I could hear conversations over the rustling of the grass, these would earn five stars.

Phenomenal product

I have the base level alpha 60 for upland and couldn’t be happier. I was a little worried about the 60s only having noise suppression vs cancellation like the 90s do but I have now hunted several times in fairly windy conditions and they work great. Wind is a little noticeable but not a deal breaker by any means. Significantly better than anything else I have tried. The sound enhancement, gun fire suppression and overall comfort are fantastic
