If you hear the "crack of a supersonic bullet", YOU'RE STANDING IN THE WRONG PLACE.
Yup, and if you "heard" it, you probably ought to get down.

So, we don't hear the crack standing behind the bullet/gun??
Yes and no. You will hear it, but it will be downrange awhile when you do, and not an issue to your hearing.

I have a suppressor for my AR, and can shoot it in the carport without hearing protection, something I cant do with a .22LR. Same goes for my Glock with its suppressor when super sonic ammo is used. Its the muzzle blast thats bad for your ears.
