I wear hearing aids. Mine do not have compression for loud noises. I don't hear much without them. I cannot hear normal woods noises without them, nor can I usually understand conversational speech from most people without them. So I now need hearing enhancement when I'm out hunting. Yes, i could get new real hearing aids that would include this, but my audiologist tells me I'm in the over $5000 per ear price range. I would not want to wear anything that expensive in the woods. Anyone with experience with Game Ear or similar ear buds? Thanks Bfly PS. wear hearing protection, if you don't you will regret it.
