Custom Hearing Protection for Upland Hunting Upland 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 critical sounds for the upland hunter (bird flushes, dog ecollars, cow bells) while providing hearing protection from loud gunshots. Custom molded for the most personalized fit possible, with rechargeable option available.
Upland programming also available on Multi-Pursuit CustomShield.
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.
Our custom products provide the most personalized fit and protection available. Our CustomShield devices are custom molded for the most personalized fit possible, and a rechargeable option is available.
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, 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.

These custom fit upland hearing protection devices are second to none. For hunting all day the comfort to wear these is imperative. At first, I was a bit leery to spend this much money on hearing protection. All the other brands I have tried, I rarely actually wear them because of either the comfort, or lack of being able to hear. These are amazing! One side-effect that I have found though is that I am not able to hear voices as well as I expected. After wearing them for duck and pheasant hunting, the wind noise is minimal, and amplification of bird noises is fantastic. Unfortunately, I am finding myself removing them more often than I'd like to, so that I can talk with my hunting buddies and/or heed their instructions. Not a deal breaker, but definitely not what I expected for $1,000+ considering they are advertised to allow conversation and clarity.
Only had the chance to use once before season ended but was very impressed
I bought theses spending 1500 and can’t even hear a bird flush with them took them out and got more shots hearing the birds a lot more
Using Upland CustomShield for sporting clays right now and am amazed at hearing protection coupled with terrific sound amplification. Looking forward to using them on a quail hunt next month. I highly recommend this product and the service I received from TETRA and William Frawley!
I am returning the product - the left one has no graduation in level and has 4 tones, right has 3 tones but on/ off rotation is off by 1/2 full rotation - they suppress the shot - but completely disappointed in the workmanship/ quality Hopefully thus be resolved as my son and daughter are purchasing custom fit shooting protection- before we decide we will see if you repair these.
