Does this shit work?

If I ever have to shoot someone, it will most likely be inside an enclosed space while I'm on a phone call (I drive in the hood for work a lot.)
Anyone own these or anything like it? Do they filter out road and engine noise as well?

    use a 22lr revolver, it's a good idea for an enclosed space anyways. LCR 22.

      I won't go under .380
      I don't trust rim fire, and that could also damage my hearing, albeit not as bad.
      I just want to know if this shit actually works. I don't trust YouTube Black person former NRA shill just at his word. I need at least one of you autistic zogbots to corroborate it.

    No, they don’t work. Best bet is still gonna be over-ear active ear pro, or just classic foam or rubber in-ears without an active component. i believe surefire makes a version that is like norma earpro but with a small closable hole, so you can still hear people speaking, but if you need to shoot without warning, you’re still getting enough Db reduction not to frick up your ears, and if you have warning, you can quickly close the little holes and get full protection. They’re called sonic defenders

      So you have tried them?

      I would be surprised if they did work. If you could listen to music, make voice calls, and have nominal gunfire cancellation (not to mention the super hearing feature the website claims,) then you'd have definitely heard of these by now. Everyone would be using them.

        I’ve tried them, I’ve tried the walker silencers, and I’ve tried the chinese versions too. None work well. They’re too bulky and don’t fit

      You can get foam earplugs by the bucketload from an industrial supplier. Where I used to work there were giant dispensers and you could just take as many as you needed.

      I bought a pair of Aliexpress noise cancelling earbuds, the M20T's. they're not horrible for the price tbh, I wouldn't be comfortable sitting around 30cals all day, but they're pretty good at keeping smaller calibers quiet, I mostly just use them for music at the gym now, but they do work at the range too. worst part about them is the software design/UI. they're not intuitive to connect or trouble shoot, and most issues are fixed by placing them back into their charging holder and taking them back out again cause that seems to reset them.

        Active noise cancelling doesn't do shit about hearing damage my dude. The only thing that stops the pressure doing a number on your eardrum is mass put in the way.

          they're no different to foam earplugs with a thin tube in the middle leading to a speaker/microphone, pressure is only really an issue if you're shooting next to some butthole with a braked rifle or something like I was.

          most of the pressure wave will always be in front of you while shooting, in which case the foam earplugs do enough to save you from hearing damage.

            The thin tube is a lot fatter on audio equipment. It's better than nothing but still shit, and ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION is literally doing nothing.

              it's just fancy speak to say it's gonna cut the audio when the mic detects above a certain Db range, it's actually useful because you can have conversations with people at normal talking volume and the earbuds/headphones auto level the gun blast out. why do you think it does nothing?

                That's not what noise cancellation is, guy. ANC is when the mics feed an inverted wave into the speakers.
                A cutout is just a silly thing because those tiny little speakers aren't the problem, and it's not ANC. OP has ANC.

                Shit the more I know, but still, seems like it's doing the same thing I mentioned, making it easier to hold a normal conversation with gun blasts in the background, the foam portion of the earbuds are doing the heavy lifting in terms of hearing protection

                Think of it this way, the actual noise reduction never changes. That's a function of how much mass is in front of your eardrum and nothing else.
                The sound being passed through the mics is completely separate, and those speakers aren't powerful enough to do any real damage.

                The problem with this technology is that it doesn't work on sudden sounds but rather are optimized for constant humming. No piece of equipment on the market is able to catch the most damaging transient of a gunshot in time to attenuate it, at all.

    I've used acoustic filter earplugs. They work, but they will never achieve as high an NRR as required to prevent hearing loss from gunshots indoors.

            There are mini suppressors for concealment. Can add as little as 2" to the gun.

              I know, but it's hard to conceal even an unsuppressed 9 in a T-shirt when you're even a little fat. The grip always pokes your shirt. If it doesn't fit in a cargo pocket I can't frick with it anymore. I've lost 40#, but the next 20 or so are fricking hard. I've been plateaued for over a year.

                I use a reflective vest, but I'm always worried about customers seeing it.
                And anyway, there's the whole nfa thing to worry about. Doesn't crossing state lines create a potential issue? I do that on little notice a lot.
                Believe me, if I could get away with a 2"can, I'd make it work. I haven't looked into this since it became clear the hearing protection act was dead in the water. Are wait times down? How much does this bullshit cost now?

                Just wear a looser shirt made of a denser fabric under the vest. Ideally patterned, like a flannel, to break up the lines.

                SBRs yes, suppressors no. They're specifically exempt.

    Anecdotal, but I once tried my AirPod pro 2 2nd gens at an indoor range with the lane next to me firing and they did surprisingly well.

    Ideally I wanted them under the normal ear pro but it was a bit tight and didn’t work (they kept falling out) and I was worried the RO would get pissy if I just wore em only.

      Wrong way around. You put foamies in and then crank up the volume on electronic over-ears.

      That's good to know, but my big concern is concealed carry. The whole point is I'd have them in all the time and use them for phonecalls and audiobooks.

      I've been stealing these one at a time from customers, (auto plants and shit) but the problem is still putting them in. If I'm getting carjacked there isn't time. (This is also why I no longer iwb carry at three o'clock. It's very hard to get it out quickly while sitting down.)

      I guess it's back to "death or tinnitus."

      At best I can get the Paul Harrell style collar case and put them in in bad neighborhoods.

    1. Active cancellation isn't the same as blocking sound
    2. They're going to do the same as any other earbud
    3. That's still better than nothing. You absolutely would not want to use those on an indoor range, but they will take some of the edge off and maybe make the difference between disorientation and death or hearing damage. Tinnitus is better than death.
