    Default Electronic ears?

    Looking for information on improving my hearing.
    If you have used any electronic earphones, I would like to know what works and what does not.

    I have a set of beretta muffs. They work pretty good while sitting still. They suck pretty bad while moving or if the wind is blowing.

    I totally agree. We used to use electronic earmuffs whilst instructing on the range. I thought they would be good in the bush, I am half deaf as well, but they suck.

    I found I couldn't tell how much noise I was actually making because the wind and every other noise was either activating the electronics or making the noise louder and more distorted.

    Several years ago I built a parabolic microphone and it did not work very well. I decided to find out if I could make it more sensitive. In the last couple of weeks, I found it had a problem. After fixing the problem I still did not like it so I re-designed it, I now have a problem finding a location near Anchorage that I can test it with out cars or Airplane noise.
    Another problem I have is, I do not have any other amplifier to compare it to.

    I was also told about a parabolic microphone that a person really likes. http://www.amazing1.com/accoustics.htm
