Electronic Ear Protection for Shooting Range AlphaShield
$699.00 / 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 the most critical sounds for the shooter, while providing hearing protection from gunshots.
Clear communication and environmental awareness are an absolute necessity on the range. At TETRA, we’ve analyzed the most critical sounds for the competitive and recreational shooter and programmed those into each device. Using our proprietary Specialized Target Optimization™ technology, range commands, instructors, students, and voices of shooting partners are clear. Surrounding environmental sounds are natural, while maintaining appropriate hearing protection for the shooter.
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 environment. With our AlphaShield Range products, STO provides clear voices for your shooting partners and range officers, while maintaining natural levels of sounds for the environment around you.
All of our products use advanced digital processing to instantly shut down and instantly recover for sudden loud noises, like gunshots, providing the wearer protection based on the fit of the device. 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 talking with shooting 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.

I really like them at the range. Just got a couple minor bugs to work out.
For the longest time, I found it impossible to protect my ears AND listen to a coach, trapper or just a friend. But with my new Alpha Shields this has all changed. Great product and terrific support William.
Amazing to hear my surroundings again on the sporting clays course and have amazing shotgun sound protection. Universal fit was easy. The silicone earbuds fit fine, no complex setup. It brings a whole new level of enjoyment to the sport. You can talk and interact with others like normal, hear sounds in the environment, and are still totally protected.
I like my TETRA hearing devices very well. Once I found the correct size ear buds to use they work very well. I have used them while coaching our trap team shooters and find it vey easy to communicate with the shooters.
Won’t be saying that again! Love the Tetras for all facets of range work. Haven’t had a chance to use them hunting yet but I am sure that dove and duck season will be unlike those in the recent past. It will be great to hear my partners calling out the birds!
