DefendEar DigitalX 3 Replacement Module


In stock


Custom Digital Noise Suppression. The DX3 module features three optimized programs ideal for either intermittent or continuous shots in addition to ambient sound enhancement.



The new and improved DefendEar DigitalX (DEDX) series is our latest generation of custom, digital hearing protection. One of our brand new models to be introduced in this line, the DX3 features three digitally optimized programs or “modes” for users to choose from, which include: Clay, Game and the all new Tactical mode. The DX3 offers the same digital rocker switch that is featured with our flagship DEDX model, the DX5, and is available in our full range of metallic color choices. The DX3 also utilizes a digital “Auto-Save” feature, so your personal user settings that are in place when you turn your DX3s off will still be in place the next time you turn them back on. Just like the rest of our DEDX models, the new DX3 comes with an extended two year warranty and is CE EN352 certified.

  1. CLAY MODE - Outdoor Clay Range. Optimized for a faster rate of fire with other shooters firing nearby, leaving the user exposed to more prolonged loud levels
  2. GAME MODE - Outdoor Game Shooters. Following a gunshot, the device activates reducing output levels to keep the shooter safe from harmful noise. The sound level then immediately returns to normal, allowing the user to hear approaching quarry.
  3. RANGE MODE - Outdoor Fast Action Shooting. Reduced low level gain minimizes irritating sounds like those caused as a shooter runs on gravel or dry grass for example. Following a gunshot, the device activates reducing output levels to keep the shooter safe from harmful noise. The sound level then immediately returns to normal, allowing the user to communicate with their team.

All programs have been optimized for general conditions as each name suggests, however as every user’s perception of sound will vary, each user will find that the programs are also suitable in a range of different conditions or environments. The protection offered will not change regardless of users’ environment!


The DX3 vocally advises you which mode you are using, and updates you as you change between modes, ensuring the user is always aware of their selected mode. It will also alert you when you are at minimum or maximum volume levels. You will also hear beeps as you toggle through the levels in between. Vocal feedback is also given when battery power becomes low and critical.


The DX3 also feature a dedicated power button that doubles as a mute function, for those critical moments where concentration is key. The mute function is ideal for the competition shooter, some prefer the quietness of mute to allow concentration on their set up and preparation prior to calling a target.


The DX3 will remember your last set volume level and mode selection - even when the device is switched off or the battery is removed.

  • ZINC AIR BATTERY ADVISORY NOTICE It is important to understand that Zinc Air batteries used in DEDX products perform differently than traditional everyday batteries. Zinc air batteries are supplied with a tab on each cell. Once the tab is removed from the cell, the battery will activate and begin to discharge, even if placed into the DEDX module when the module is switched off. Replacing the tab when the battery is not in use will not extend the battery life. It is recommended that you always carry replacement batteries with you when using DEDX earpieces. Westone recommends that you only use high quality zinc air batteries in DEDX modules, such as Rayovac or PureCell Plus, which have a typical battery life 400 hours. Battery life may also vary depending on ambient sound levels and environmental conditions such as humidity.

DefendEar Gunshot Noise Hearing Protection White Paper



This product is designed for people with normal hearing only! The purpose of hearing protection is to reduce the impact of the sound and to reduce the potential for hearing loss. Hearing protection devices, including DefendEar products, do not eliminate sound. The user is responsible for determining whether the noise reduction provided by DefendEar products will provide adequate hearing protection based on the user’s unique medical history and exposure level. Your medical history, particularly any prior trauma to the ear or prior hearing loss, as well as the noise (decibel level and exposure time) the user will be exposed to should be considered prior to using DefendEar products. If you have any questions concerning the appropriate exposure levels or the level of hearing protection provided by DefendEar products, or if you have hearing loss or ear injuries, contact your local hearing professional before using.
