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.

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, calling sounds natural, wood duck squeals, whistling wings, and mallard drakes are all easily audible.

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.

Research

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.

Worth every cent

I’ve tried other brands of electronic ear protection before, and It’s always the same problem. They’re not comfortable, so inevitably I take them out. While using the Tetras in the field, I barely notice them. They’re so comfortable that the first time I tried them on around the house I fell asleep on the couch with them in. The product is great, but what stood out to me was the customer service. Amy answered all of my questions, and help me every step of the way. I will continue to recommend this product to anyone who will listen!

Above & Beyond. Made by hunters for hunters

Tetra custom shields have opened my eyes (and ears) to the world of hunting hearing devices. After researching most the hunting hearing devices out there it was clear Tetra is on the cutting edge of this category. The specific programs tailored to your preferred habitat or activity, is quite extraordinary when you get to experience them in the field. I’m happy and confident I made the right decision, went with TETRA and am looking forward to a great duck season!

Disappointed

Very disappointed in this product. As a caveat, it’s not due to performance: the performance was absolutely amazing. The durability is what’s disappointing. I purchased my custom shields a little over a year ago, in May of 2022. Regular usage through waterfowl and deer season/range use. Unfortunately, I went to power them on for a recent small game hunt, and the left side is no longer working. As I am outside of my warranty, I am now left with a pair of $1300+ custom ear plugs that serve me no purpose. Making an investment like this was important to my overall hearing health, as my previous choices in hearing protection (little to none) plus military service was less than ideal. I was so excited to whip these things out on every hunt and everyone would ask me what they were. I highly recommended them to multiple people. Unfortunately, I am going to have to change that recommendation now to “do not purchase”. Tetra, please work on the durability of your product. These should last several years, at minimum. I will not be dropping another $1300+ on something that simply won’t last past the warranty period.
