Walker’s XCEL 100 Digital Electronic Muffs provide active dynamic reduction of dangerous blast noise while amplifying safe sounds, protecting your hearing and giving you the tactical edge. The XCEL 100 is designed for shooters and hunters, featuring advanced digital circuity that automatically reduces noise while simultaneously allowing you to hear voices and prey. Ambient noise is captured by omni-directional hi gain mics and amplified in your choice of four distinct listening modes, keeping your situational awareness active whether you’re at the range or in the field. To top it off, those cutting-edge electronics are housed in the ergonomic headband rather than in the traditional location inside the ear cups, a revolutionary new design that makes Walker’s XCEL 100 Muffs more comfortable, well-balanced, and effective at protecting your hearing.
Variable Dynamic Sound Reduction
The XCEL 100 features Walker’s next-generation Sound-Activated Compression, an advanced digital compression system that provides Active Dynamic Sound Reduction with Walker’s usual blazing fast attack time. The result is that harmful blast noises are reduced, while safe sounds remain audible and uninterrupted, with no cutting in and out. Meanwhile, Variable Dynamic Sound Reduction tunes the sound amplification to suit your surroundings. Now you can hear range commands clearly, hold conversations easily, and get an edge up on your prey – without putting your hearing at risk. The Walker’s name means hunters and shooters never have to sacrifice performance for safety.
Enhanced Hearing with Four Listening Modes
The best electronic ear muffs don’t just protect your ears from damage: they also enhance your hearing. Wearing any modern electronic ear muff, you can hear far better than you could with your naked ears alone. And the XCEL pushes that envelope even further, allowing you to choose from four different listening modes:
- Universal – General sound amplification for all purposes
- Speech Clarity – Hear voices clearly and enhance verbal communication
- High Frequency – Hear steel target impact at long distances
- Power Boost – Strong amplification across all ranges
This hearing protector’s sound amplification is versatile and powerful. The XCEL’s hi gain omni-directional mics provide high-quality directional sound, so you stay aware of your surroundings and ready to react at all times. Selectable wind noise reduction ensures the sound you hear remains reliable, even in challenging environments. And because you have your choice of listening modes, you can optimize your hearing enhancement to perfectly suit your surroundings. A voice confirmation informs you which setting you’re currently on, so you can switch modes to adapt quickly and confidently.
Revolutionary Design: Turn Tradition Upside Down
Walker’s XCEL hearing protectors turn the traditional electronic ear muff design on its head – literally. With the microphones, circuitry, controls, and even the batteries moved out of their traditional placement in the ear cups and into the redesigned headband instead, these electronic muffs have had their weight radically redistributed upwards. The result is reduced neck fatigue and superb balance. The XCEL wears more naturally and feels lighter than other ear muffs, significantly enhancing both comfort and mobility. And without the internal electronics to fill them up, the ear cups have fewer holes and more interior air space, dramatically improving their ability to block out hazardous noise.
Every aspect of these XCEL ear muffs is built for performance and durability. The headband is not only redesigned to hold the essential components, but it also provides improved ergonomic comfort, too. Freed from carrying the electronics, the ear cups can be dedicated solely to delivering superior protection and comfort. Everything about this design is smart, right down to thoughtful details such as the rubber bumpers on the bottom of each earcup.
Between the advanced digital noise reduction and the aggressively innovative physical design, Walker’s XCEL line truly raises the bar for what an electronic ear muff for hunters and shooters should be.
Powered by 2x AAA batteries (included). A low battery warning alerts you when power is low. The programmable auto-shutoff feature with 2/4/6 hour settings preserves battery life.
