Re: Walkers game ears?
I have used them as a pair for about 10 years. There are about five problems and about one good point.
First the good point.
If you can't hear, then they work very well to allow you to hear and they are frequency tunable to provide amplitude in the range you need it.
1. You cannot wear a low hat nor long redneck hair as it will create feedback.
2. They are not waterproof and so must be protected from rain and the washing machine.
3. Even with a pair you lose directional locating ability although if you were not going to hear the animal in the first place you are ahead of the game.
4. I find I turn up the volume too high or else it is necessary for it to be too high and after four or five hours of hunting I have a temporary increase in hearing loss.
5. They do not like high winds and that will create a lot of background noise.
While it sounds like there are a lot of problems, if you have severe hearing loss then they are really good.
