Upland Hunting Ear Protection Upland AlphaShield
$699.00 / Pair Why the price?
TETRA 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 enhancement devices optimized for the most prominent and important sounds for the upland hunter (bird flushes, dog ecollars, cow bells), while providing hearing protection from loud gunshots.
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.

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.

After hunting many years with standard hearing protection (foam ear plugs) and not being able to hear pheasants flush, I decided to order a set of Upland AlphaShield 90 hearing protection. These are absolutely incredible! Not only do they block the sound of the shotgun, they actually allow you to hear normal conversation and, more importantly, hear the birds flush. The 90 series is also tailored to my hearing loss which allowed me to hear sounds that I have not heard in 20 years. On top of that, they decreased my tinnitius to an almost undetectable level. Amazing. My only regret is that I did not buy these sooner. We all spend far more on hunting gear and shotguns, its time we spend a little to take care of our hearing. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for top-quality hearing protection.
