I have been using Radians products for more years than I am going to admit to in writing.  Many years ago I was suffering from an inner ear problem, and I couldn’t be around shooting without being in pain. My husband bought me my first set of electronic earmuffs at that time, they were my first Radians.  I was so impressed, I was like a little kid running around telling everyone who would listen how thrilled I was with my hearing protection.  Many of the shooters I was bragging to, had never had a pair of electronic earmuffs, and couldn’t understand how you could hear better, but not blow out your eardrums when shooting, while wearing them.  But, they all went out and bought the same earmuffs I had, after using mine for just a little while!  They became believers!

Now we return to the present, and I am still running around telling everyone how great they are!  I still have my original pair, and they still work great, but I have added to that one over the years.

The Hunter’s Ears model has to be the best all around model I have used.  They feature the dual independently controlled microphones which enhance and amplify sound, while they automatically compress the harmful sudden noise from a muzzle blast.  Like all of the Radians earmuffs, they can be folded very compactly for protection of the unit and ease of storage.  They are comfortable to wear, with lots of adjustment for different sized heads.  I tend to forget I even have them on!

HE4P00CSThe Prowl Ears model is a behind the ear version that still has the amplification and compression features.  These are extremely small and easy to transport and pack.  The package includes 2 units and will work both in the woods or on the job.  Wearing this model, you can easily wear a hat or head band for warmth.

Prowl Ear_PR2601CSMy new favorite pair is the Enhance Ear!  The are a very small design that fits comfortably and securely into your ear.  Like the other electronic hearing protection that Radians offers, these can do the double duty of sound application and harmful sound compression. These do the job of their bigger brothers, while leaving you the freedom of hats, headband and eye glasses without any conflicting. I wore these the entire time I was hog hunting in Alabama recently.  They made hearing the faint hog noises much easier, while of course not doing any damage to my hearing from my shots!  Plus no extra weight to carry around with you!  These will be going to South Africa with me in a couple of months.  I need to watch what I pack because of weight, and these don’t weigh enough to make any difference in my luggage, but they will definitely make a difference when we are sighting in our rifles and hunting!

Enhance Ear_TA2701CSFor my grandchildren, I am loving the new Women and Youth models!  They now offer a Pink Pro-Amp model, which of course is pink.  They feature the dual independent microphones which amplifies your normal conversations while keeping the harmful impulse noises to a safe level. The headband is padded with a moisture wicking material.  These are designed for the smaller heads that we women tend to have.  My granddaughters have been fighting over this pair, so I will probably be adding another into our collection!

Pink Pro-Amp_PAP700CSThere are several combination packs that are offered for Women and Youth.  There is a T-71P/MP22C that pairs the performance shooting glasses with the slim design passive earmuffs.  This combo comes in pink, with the shooting glasses having tasteful accents in pink.  These earmuffs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NNR) of 22.

There is also the True Jr. Combo kit, which has the silver colored True Jr. Earmuuffs designed specifically for the younger shooter.  These are passive, and have a NNR of 21.  This kit also includes the youth model shooting glasses, with 3 interchangeable lens colors.

My grandchildren shoot often with us, so it is important to have eye and hearing protection that not only fits correctly, but also protects their delicate ears and eyes.  These models fit the bill, and also require no batteries!  We used to let them use our electronic versions, and we would have to purchase new batteries absolutely every time we used them.  The kids would inevitably leave the microphones turned on, even after they were done wearing them.  These passive models are perfect for the kids that would forget.

Radians manufactures for several different companies, including Remington.  They have also came out with a complete line of Michael Waddell’s Bone Collector shooting glasses and hearing protection.  Fashionable and functional performance!

I use my hearing protection for every situation.  They go from shooting and hunting to cutting firewood and running other equipment.  The next time you are in the market for a new set of hearing protection, look for the Radians name, you will not be disappointed!  They have a hearing protection for every application and budget!

These products can be purchased at Cabelas, Bass Pro, Gander Mountain, Sears, Amazon and many other retailers.  They range in price from $15.99 for the Low Set Ear Muffs to around $100 for the Hunter’s Ear model.  And the best part…They are Made in the USA!!

MEMPHIS, TN—November 20, 2012—A recent survey by the National Sporting Goods Association (NSGA) reports amazing growth in female participation in hunting and shooting.  According to the NSGA survey, “72 percent more women are hunting with firearms today than just five years ago.” Hunting with a bow and arrow is up 176 percent (thank you Hunger Games!) and shooting with a handgun is up 33 percent.

The survey reports that “3 million women now hunt and over 5 million women enjoy shooting.” To support the growing number of female shooters and hunters, Radians is developing a pink safety line for women that includes eye, ear, and hand protection. Some of the products in the women’s line include:

  • X-TREME™ Anti-Fog Women’s Shooting Glass  (MSRP $15.49)

Radians announces new made-in-the-USA foam ear plugs

Although hearing protection regulations have been in place for decades, Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is still a major occupational illness. Radians' new Made in the USA foam ear plugs (Resistor, Deflector, and Deviator) provide an effective, single-use solution to combat NIHL. Because they are manufactured in America, they are also the patriotic solution to hearing protection.

Tested in accordance with ANSI S3.19-1974 standards, Radians disposable foam ear plugs feature soft, slow-recovery foam for extreme comfort and outstanding noise reduction (NRR 32 and NRR33). They are easy to roll down and insert, and then they expand slowly for a low-pressure fit in virtually any size ear canal.

They are available corded and uncorded in a tapered bullet or bell shape and are conveniently packaged in individual polybags to keep each pair clean. Bulk and case quantities are available allowing organizations to affordably address hearing protection and hygiene issues.

 “As more Americans practice patriotic spending to help jumpstart our sluggish economy, Radians Made in the USA foam plugs not only fulfill the need for quality hearing protection; but they also satisfy the need to buy American,” said Bill England, President of Radians. “There is a lot of value in being able to choose American made products these days, and Radians is on a mission to manufacture a significant amount of high quality personal protective products with a competitive value.”

Radians is a Memphis, TN-based manufacturer of quality safety glasses, hearing protection, performance gloves, high visibility clothing and footwear products. Radians has partnered with highly respected companies including DEWALT, Black & Decker, and Remington to provide high performance personal protection products. The company has additional facilities in Reno, Nevada; Dallas, Texas; Thomasville, NC, and Belmont, Michigan.

Radians Supports West Salem Rod & Gun Club's 8th Annual Youth Day

June 25, 2012, Posted in News


Sponsored in part by the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), the West Salem Rod & Gun Club gave children up to 13 years old the ability to participate in RMEF’s program called SAFE (Shooting Access for Everyone).

At the event, SAFE introduced young and novice shooters to safe and responsible firearm use, which included the wearing of Radians shooters glasses and hearing protection. The children also learned about the hunter’s role in conservation and the North American Wildlife Conservation Model. The youth had the opportunity to shoot an Air Rifle with help from RMEF SAFE mentors or experienced shooters.

“Shooting competitions and youth day events are an integral part of Radians grass-roots marketing efforts to showcase our products among shooters and hunters,” says Jim Hink, Director of Marketing.  “These events allow us to foster goodwill among the community and the shooting clubs while simultaneously grooming our youth to become safety conscious.”

Mary Padron, Marketing Communications & Event Coordinator for Radians, works with the various associations and clubs to supply them with Radians safety products, banners, and marketing literature. “Sometimes, we get photos from the events, such as these posted here; and you get to see firsthand how our products keep people safe and make them happy too!”

Radians Line of Mossy Oak® Safety Products Provide Camouflage & Protection

June 11, 2012, Posted in News

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


MEMPHIS, TN
– If a sponsor at The Hunger Games had sent a Radians® Hunter’s Ears™ electronic camouflage earmuff to Katniss Everdeen, she may have avoided partial deafness after the mine explosion while still being able to hear any tributes sneaking up on her.  In light of the recent fanfare associated with The Hunger Games, Radians® is proud to offer an extensive line of camouflage Mossy Oak® safety products for hunting that provides both concealment and protection for the outdoor enthusiast.

Respectful of fashion trends and passionate about safety equipment, Radians Mossy Oak-licensed patterns provide camouflage style and high-tech features to protect hearing and vision.

High-Tech Hearing Protection

By combining electronic amplification and automatic compression technology, Radians Hunter’s Ears™ have revolutionized hearing protection for the sports enthusiast. The main benefit of an electronic earmuff, such as Radians Hunter’s Ears™, is the enhancement of outdoor sounds while providing concealment, warmth, comfort, and ear protection from muzzle blast sounds.
The electronic sound amplification earmuff with 2 independent high frequency directional microphones enhances the surrounding sounds, thereby providing an environment where users can hear range commands and game, as well as their hunting partners. The compression technology automatically compresses harmful impulse noise to a safer range below 85dB without clipping or cutting. The camouflage Mossy Oak pattern offers concealment, something else that is very important as witnessed in The Hunger Games.

A Mossy Oak-patterned earmuff called the Low Set Camo is available from the Radians passive hearing collection. Its adjustable CoolMax® headband offers a comfortable, tight fit, which is important in blocking out harmful noise in passive hearing protection.

Vision Protection

Radians also has Mossy Oak camouflage patterns available in its arsenal of vision protection.  A variety of formats are available:

Youth

Safety, including hearing and eye protection, is an important concept to teach our youth, especially when it comes to the world of hunting and shooting. Radians designed the Journey Jr.™ in Mossy Oak® Break-Up® camo shooting glasses specifically for younger shooting and hunting enthusiasts.

Specialty Eyewear

Radians Mossy Oak Polarized Cobalt safety glasses provide a quality polarized lens. This specialty lens eliminates reflective glare that directly hits the lens and also a portion that hits at other angles.  Eliminating reflective glare reduces eyestrain, allowing a crisp view of the surroundings in richer colors. For those around water, it eliminates reflection and allows viewing below the water’s surface.

Hunter’s Kit™

The Mossy Oak® Break-Up® Hunter’s Kit by Radians provides the combination of eyeware and hearing protection in one convenient kit. The Journey™ shooting glass with a full wraparound frame, 4-position telescoping temple, is available with a Cease Fire™ earplug or a pair of tan Custom Molded Earplugs.

Mossy Oak® Break-Up® patterns are available through a full line of Radians® Electronic and Passive Products.  For more information, contact a sales representative at 1.877.723.4267 or visit www.Radians.com.
