Now On Kickstarter – SightLines: Headset Cushions with Zero Eyewear Interference by Noisefighters

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Wearing both eyepro and earpro while at the range can become pretty annoying when the earpieces of the glasses break seal of the ear cups. Noisefighters has developed the first over-ear headset cushions to feature zero eyewear interference. Called SightLines, they are currently available on Kickstarter.


Noisefighters tells us that when SightLines cushions are worn correctly, eyewear no longer causes hot spots around the ears. In addition, the unique horseshoe ring design and use of silicone gel and memory foam softens the cushion so much that compression is significantly reduced, pressure is better equalized across a larger surface area, and eyewear will not sit crookedly or need to be constantly adjusted. The cushions are also quite roomy, so ears will not feel cramped. Headaches are also significantly reduced or eliminated compared to traditional ear cushions.


Government testing has shown a 1-10+ decibel decrease in sound deadening when eyewear breaks the head seal on traditional ear cushions used on earmuffs.


The cushions are compatible with most of the popular headsets used by shooters and aviators: Howard Leight Impact Sport/Pro, 3M Peltor (including Optime, RangeGuard, Sport Tactical, Tactical Sport, and ComTac/SWATTac), MSA Sordin, Walker’s Razor Slim, TCI Liberator/DEHP, Gentex SPH-4/5 helmets, Aviation Survival Evo helmets, and a ton more headphones and aviation headsets from Bose, etc.

Even more promising, these aftermarket pads are less expensive than gel replacements from the OEM.

Please Support The Family Of Cst Mark Neville

Monday, September 4th, 2017

I just received news of a tragic car accident which took the life of Constable Mark Neville and injured his wife and sons. Mark was a member of the RCMP and the friend of a friend which makes him family. I know this news is shocking and has hit a lot of people very hard. You all have our deepest condolences, especially his family.

His colleagues have started a Go Fund Me Page to help his family during this trying time. If you knew Mark please consider donating to this cause.


This is the note which I have been authorized to share.


“Eric…. It is with great sadness that I am writing to you to let our brothers-in-arms know that one of our snipers and cherished friend, Mark Neville, has sadly perished in a vehicle accident in British Columbia on September 2nd. While travelling with his wife and 2 young sons, another vehicle crossed the center line and impacted Mark’s truck. He succumbed to his injuries at scene. His wife and two sons survived the incident and are recovering in hospital. Words cannot describe what our team is feeling right now.

Growing up in Canada’s north Mark was the embodiment of an easy going, humble, hard working, salt of the earth farm boy. He put people at ease with his demeanour, would give you the shirt off his back, and truly loved being a Mountie. In short, a man and a father that we all hope our sons will become.

Mark worked and trained extensively over the years with a number of your readers. In support of his family we have established a site to help his sons and wife. It can be found at;


Best Regards, Corporal James McLeod, Royal Canadian Mounted Police, Emergency Response Team
