Custom Hearing Protection for Upland Hunting Upland CustomShield
$1,149.00 / 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. 90 device - customized for your specific hearing levels. 60 device - for standard hearing only.
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.
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.

Upland Custom Shield
I have used them for trap shooting and grouse hunting. So far all good. I am able to hear conversation and birds flushing. Works much better than the units I had before. I will be pheasant hunting in the near future and hope they will work as well for this.
Hard to hear others
To much in left ear, too loud , not enough in right ear more like ear plug
Works amazing love the custom fitting
Texas to Tennessee
I love my Upland Customshields. So far I've only been to the range and the perform better then expected. I'm still getting use to inserting into my in to my ear, but overall this was a great purchase and the performance is off the charts. Additionally I want to thank the Tetra team for meeting me in hotel lobby to test my hearing and create molds for me on my way to pickup my daughter from UT Knoxville. I only had about 4 hrs. to spare in Franklin and you really helped me out. That kind of customer services is what impresses me and really shows me that company cares about what they deliver. Thanks Gentleman!
Amazing suppression and comfort!
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.
