  • About us

    Howard Leight is a leading global provider of passive and electronic hearing protection and eye protection for shooting sports.

Founded in 1972
by Howard Leight

What's the most essential thing we've learned in more than 40 years of hearing protection in loud environments? To block out the noise and listen to what's important. By listening, we've heard some things loud and clear. Every environment offers unique challenges.

Founded in 1972 by Howard Leight himself, the brand has pursued the prevention of hearing loss via innovative hearing conservation solutions. With a storied history in the market, including the invention of banded hearing in the 1970’s and PU foam earplugs in the 1980’s, Howard Leight continues as an industry leader with over 150 patents.

In 2010, Howard Leight was acquired by Honeywell International, and maintains one of only three accredited NVLAP acoustical laboratories in the US to test hearing. With this high-level testing, we are able to design our products to meet the needs of professional, lifestyle, and recreational users.
