    EHP Introduces Sophisticated Hearing Enhancement and Protection Device: the EHD-1 BTE(Behind the Ear)

    Indianapolis, IN- When the shooting public speaks, EHP founder Denny Snyder listens. EHP Electronic Hearing Protection announces the addition of the new EHD-1 to their line of sound amplification/hearing protection products. The EHD-1 is the most advanced Behind The Ear ( BTE) unit available and will take outdoor enthusiasts hearing and protection to an entirely new level.

    The EHD-1 increases the user’s ability to hear up to ten times their normal hearing yet compresses any sound over 85 db to a safe level. This two channel unit uses digital technology and has a omni-directional microphone located in the front. The EHD-1 has adjustable gain and with the easy to operate adjustable rolling volume control, the user can precisely set the unit for their own individual needs.

    The EHD-1 can be set to use either the enhancement function or the telecoil mode with a simple three position selector switch. Each setting has its own unique feature which gives the user the ability to pinpoint sound- even in a noisy environment such as trying to hear range announcements during multiple shooting events or locating the direction of a distant gobble, bugle, or sounds of approaching game. Competition shooters are raving about their ability to hear the shot timer much sooner than their peers who use standard passive hearing protection.

    The EHD-1 also has an internal telecoil coil which gives the user the capabilities of wireless communication. This function makes the EHD-1 suitable for cordless and digital telephones as well as walkie-talkie radios that utilize standard single-jack mini-plug connectors. A neck-loop/lapel microphone accessory available through EHD-1 gives the user the freedom of hands-free communication as well as Blue tooth capabilities.

    The sophisticated EHD-1 digital technology utilizes a fully digital WDRC (Wide Dynamic Range Compression) amplifier which basically amplifies soft sounds such as leaves rustling from approaching game but does not amplify loud sounds such as the harmful affects of muzzle blast. The adjustable volume control has a maximum gain of over 50 dB which enhances the users normal hearing up to ten times. A noise reduction rating(NRR) of 29 dB coupled with CD-quality sound makes the new EHD-1 the ultimate tool for shooting and outdoor enthusiasts.

    The EHD-1 uses one standard #13 Cell Zinc-Air battery and because it contains more efficient digital circuitry, battery life expectancy has surpassed the competition – giving the user up to 380 hours of worry-free unsurpassed sound quality and speech clarity that only digital technology can produce. EHD-1 comes with its own rubberized hard-case. Suggested MSRP is only $289.
