“So you made a very expensive pair of audio ear devices that sound good, are wireless but can be lost easily?”
“Yes, and provided we only sell them by the pair, we got us ourselves a mint.”
“You are an evil genius. Expect big juicy bonus at the end of the year.” 

Seen at my local gym.

I like the wireless comfort, but I know me, and I know (and probably most shooters know) that if the thing is not tied and anchored, it is going to be lost soon enough.  So far, I have managed not to lose these after 3 years and they sound pretty decent.

  1. the problem I have with these is they eventually go “squish-pop” and fall out. I have an Aftrshok headset, its bone conduction for sound so I can use foam ear plugs. and if you keep volume down a bit you can still hear whats goin on around you( situational awareness)..

    1. I hate having anything stuck in my ears. I tried a good pair of Sony Bluetooth earbuds, but couldn’t get them to fit properly and they drove me nuts being stuck in my ears.

      I got a pair of Aftershok bone conduction headphones at the beginning of the Covid lockdowns and have been super happy with them. Now my wife, my son, and some of my coworkers are all using them too since I let them try mine. The battery lasts all day and they are so comfortable, I put them on in the morning and take them off when I go to sleep. The only drawback is they are a little pricy.

  2. You can use a utility that has Bluetooth signal strength measurement to locate your missing Bluetooth devices.

    I have Ubiquity gear, so I’m partial to the “WiFiMan” app.

    (Kinda like the ‘rabbit hunts’ that some HAM radio clubs put on, but of course on a room/house sized scale! 😉 )

    1. Yeah, but after it’s been left in a stall for who knows how long, would you want to put it in your ear?
