    Interesting hearing protection product, but can this really work?

    "The patented ZEM technology revolutionizes the way
    hearing protection works. Unlike ear muffs and ear
    plugs that attempt to block sound from entering the
    ear, the ZEM instead directs sound away from the
    ear. Sound waves will follow the path of least
    resistance. Because the volume of air inside the
    ZEM chamber is larger than the volume of air in the
    ear canal, the ZEM chamber offers less resistance to
    sound than the ear canal. Sound waves flow into the
    the ZEM chamber and away from the ear.

    Once inside the ZEM chamber, sound is dampened and cancelled as the waves pass through a custom
    acoustic material which absorbs the sound. Once past this filter the ZEM uses the physical properties of sound
    waves to refract and cancel.

    The length of the ZEM chamber is designed to be most effective in the middle range of sound frequencies.
    This particular configuration achieves over 32 decibels of noise reduction and does so evenly across all
    frequencies."

    Magic rocks, Lucite navels, and now this. Should be labelled "Zen", LOL.

    Actually, it might work. Try a pair and report back.

    I can buy a lot of 32 NRR ear plugs for the $35 one of these 31 NRR beauties costs.

    Do sound waves "follow the path of least resistance"?

    Please feel free to direct any questions you may have about the SensGard Hearing Protection through this thread or email me at gpost@sensgard.com. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. We've found a great many shooters really like this new form of hearing protection. Of course, as with any product or service, we can't expect everyone to prefer this product. If you wish to try them out order a pair online. If you decide you do not like them, you can send them back for a full refund. Thanks for the opportunity to post.
