EndlessMtnFab MudD is correct that you can just turn them off. If the molds are a good fit they do cushion the sound some. Most likely your Phonak will require you to open the battery case to shut it off.


If you're almost as deaf as a doornail (like me) you could just yank 'em out and probably still not hear anything.


I found all the "auto" type features (like the cut off) extremely annoying and had them all disabled. Even so . I'd probably remove the aid closest to the gun for the air compression/concussive blast (hopefully no muzzle blasting). Why rattle 'em if you don't have to ?

These things make a huge difference, yet certain situations are at the pain levels. With a cupped hand over them at the preset levels the left rings like hell. The right a bit. I can adjust each so I can tone it down. So I will just turn them off before shooting, when I get an answer I will go that route. Thank you folks.
First time users need a couple weeks to dial em in. You will probably need to have em adjusted a few times after you go through your daily life and hear shit you always hear. What sounds good in the audiologist's office doesn't always work in your world.

It took me two adjustments to get mine at a comfortable level. I rarely have to adjust the volume now.

If you wanna save a little cash, Amazon has a bunch of 60 packs of batteries for around $15.

billybob_81067 When I said, "I hope you get AIDS" this isn't what I meant. Maybe you just didn't hear me correctly...

Saw nothing on their site, nothing in FAQ section.

sparkmechanic Got it. You folks are assholes. THAT is why I come here, but I really would like a answer to this from a person who is dealing with this shit.
