Try the Gentry Quiet Brake or Shrewd Varmint brake.
I have both and they both make the sound of the shot far less piercing on the shooter's ears than any other brake I've tried or seen, and it is considerably more pleasant shooting with either than with an unbraked rifle.
The Shrewd is not as good with recoil reduction but if you are shooting prone it eliminates dust and debris blowing back in your face since it's a side discharge only. The Gentry is a 360 discharge.
Both however throw the sound forward and out yet are still very good and reducing recoil and muzzle flip.
