Empire EVS - Doesnt cover ears (it does, it's OK, see inside)

So I've been patentily waiting for the Empire EVS mask because it looks badass, but I just saw a pic of it on someones head and it just crushed my dreams.

The mask appears not to cover your ears.

Yes that would be good for hearing, but a direct shot/bunker in the ear would be extremely bad. I had a friend who got shot in the ear and it ruptured his eardrum, he had to go through multiple surgeries and he was forced to quite paintball because its still a problem for him. Not trying to scare anymore, but a shot like that can effect your entire life.

for me, unless they make extended ear covers i will not be buying this.

That is a big deal but I have no doubt empire will have ears covered, they would not miss something like that. Then again, GI is involved now and they might miss something like this, so...

That one particular picture, when it came out, was noticed to have had the ear protection removed. As they come in the box, they cover the ears fine.



You can see here where the chassis of the EVS meets up with the ear protection, and that it's not present on the first post picture.

I'd call Boss Paintball Products. If Ross there doesn't have them, they can't be gotten yet. That was something I'd noticed, too, nobody's showing replacement or additional lenses for the EVS yet anywhere.

I don't think they would pass safety standards if they didn't cover the ears.

Nice find though. It is a relief to see that they are offering "soft ears" with the release.
