Decibullz Custom Molded Fitted Percussive Filters (Decibullz)

James Bond is the sort of person who would have everything customized, including his ear protection for shooting.

The Decibullz Custom Molded Fitted Percussive Filters are an ideal gift for someone who hits the range or hunts. Ordinarily custom protection can set you back thousands, but these are an incredible steal.

These new non-battery operated percussive filters allow low-level noise like conversation, but will block gunshots and other loud noises. For example, they will filter a 12-gauge shotgun blast no problem at all.

REMARKABLE SELF-HEALING TECH COULD TACKLE INVISIBLE WAR WOUNDS

No batteries mean they are always ready – so no more delays in shooting while you hunt around for replacement batteries.

To make them exactly tailored to your ear, you simply have to drop them in some hot water for a few minutes and then pop them in. The result? A comfy, precise fit to your ears that will never fall out.

Available at an incredible $74.99.
