Trusted Electronic Hearing Protection… Now in Two Sizes

NEW Howard Leight Impact Sport Classic brings high-performance hearing protection to a wider range of shooting sports enthusiasts

CANTON, MA (December 16, 2021) – Since its introduction over a decade ago, the Howard LeightTM ImpactTM Sport electronic earmuff has been a favored addition to the range bags of shooting enthusiasts throughout the world. Impact Sport’s performance, comfort, and slim, ergonomic design make it a versatile earmuff for most shooting situations and environments, including rifle, shotgun, handgun, hunting and tactical applications. Now, this proven performer has been adapted and expanded for an improved fit on even more people.

New Sizes and Colors

“Shooting sports enthusiasts can now experience proven and reliable Impact Sport Classic features and performance while choosing from two sizes,” says Nancy Kufferman, Senior Offering Manager – Howard Leight. “We’ve expanded this extremely popular series of electronic hearing protection by offering a new Youth/Adult Small size that fits better on many youth, women, and men with smaller heads. We’re also excited to be launching the Youth/Adult Small size in great, all-new colors. Completed by our expansive offering of colors and patterns in the familiar Medium/Large size, the Howard Leight Impact Sport Classic line of electronic hearing protection offers individualized choices that are as diverse as the growing ranks of the shooting sports population.”

New Howard Leight Impact Sport Classic Youth/Adult Small models are offered in all-new Metallic Charcoal Gray and Berry Pink colors and are available now at Howard Leight Shooting Sports dealers and online at

Impact Sport Classic Medium/Large models remain available in Black, OD Green, Teal and Pink solid colors, plus stealthy MULTICAM® Tropical, MULTICAM Alpine, and MULTICAM Black patterns, as well as Smoke, One Nation, and Real Blue Honor Collection patterns.

MSRP for solid-color Impact Sport Classic models is $84 and $101 for patterned models.

Familiar, Comfortable and Reliable Performance

Featuring a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 22dB, Impact Sport Classic’s internal circuitry allows ambient and low-frequency sounds to be safely amplified up to four times to a peak of 82dB, making it easy for wearers to hear range commands and conduct conversation, even in noisy environments. Amplification automatically shuts off at 82dB, attenuating hazardous impulse noises from gunfire.

Impact Sport Classic models offer a sleek, extremely low-profile earcup design with carefully engineered cutouts that facilitate the shouldering of a rifle or shotgun while maintaining clearance from the firearm stock. Lightweight and comfortable for all-day wear, they incorporate a padded headband with vertical height adjustments for a secure, non-slip fit. When not in use, the headband and earcups fold for easy, compact storage.

Durable, recessed microphones—one on each side—reduce wind noise while providing stereo sound. Impact Sport Classic models are also equipped with an external 3.5mm AUX jack and an included cord for convenient connection to a phone, computer, MP3 player or scanner.
