Most shooters know Walker’s, or some version of its seemingly ubiquitous ear muffs out on the range. The familiarity stems from its performance, as most shooters find Walker’s muff do the job. Now the company launches a new product, dubbed the Raptor, which immediately got our attention.
Walker’s Raptor Hearing Protection
The Walker’s Raptor comes as a new approach. The hearing protection utilizes bone-conduction technology, according to Walker’s. It amplifies ambient sounds by transmitting sound waves through bones in the head to the inner ear. So it bypasses the ear canals.
It works as purely an enhancement device on its own. Or pair it with foam or custom plugs for hearing protection through Walker’s Sound Activated Compression (SAC). The combination blocks out harmful decibels of guns firing, yet amplifies range commands.
The Raptor comes equipped with Bluetooth 5.0, enabling music or cell streaming. Additionally, it works with Walker’s Link App.
The Raptor headset itself features a polymer construction. It fits around the back of the head and over the ears. Omni-directional microphones, independent volume control and sound-activated compression come standard. Rechargeable lithium ion batteries power the system.
