Noise Ear Plugs
On April 6th, 2006, it became law for employers to supply hearing protection to their staff if they are exposed to 85 decibels of noise. This is the equivalent of standing on a busy residential road. Studies have shown that one half of workers that wear hearing protection receive half or less of the protection they should. This is because their hearing protection devices are not worn correctly or continuously due to improper or uncomfortable fit. SportEAR noise ear plugs are designed for a comfortable fit for everyone, every time. Best of all, SportEAR noise ear plugs are so easy to use that users will actually wear them!
Believe it or not, there are several different options when it comes to ear plugs. Ear plugs actually serve many different functions, so while you may think you know everything there is to know about ear plugs, guess again. An ear plug is a device that is meant to be inserted in the ear canal to protect the wearer's ears from loud noises or the intrusion of water, foreign bodies, dust or excessive wind. Different circumstances call for different ear plug capabilities, so when you find yourself in need of ear plugs, make sure you are getting the right ear plug for the job. Swimmers, for example, look for ear plugs made of standard wax or moldable silicone which is custom-fitted to the ear canal by the wearer. If a swimmer tries to get by with foam noise ear plugs, he probably won’t be too happy with the results. While there are several different activities and circumstances that call for the use of ear plugs, their number one use is for the purpose of noise reduction.
Noise Ear Plugs
Hearing protectors such as noise ear plugs sold in the U.S. are required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to have a noise reduction rating (NRR), which is an estimate of the reduction of noise at the ear when protectors are worn properly. Most people think that the bigger and bulkier the product the better the hearing protection. But plugging the ear canal correctly is actually more important for the best protection. By physically plugging your ear canal with solid-core noise ear plugs, in many cases, you can get as much as 50% more hearing protection with noise ear plugs compared with head or ear muffs.
Noise ear plugs are just one of many choices in hearing protection offered by SportEAR. Each hearing protection product SportEAR produces is rigorously tested and constantly improved to meet SportEAR’s high standard of quality. Don’t risk losing the hearing you have! SportEAR carries a full line of products from stylish, inexpensive noise ear plugs to super-performing head muffs, to high-end devices that allow you to hunt, shoot, or work in loud environments and amplify your hearing at the same time! Foam noise ear plugs yield the highest NRR of 30-33, but SportEAR offers many other products with 20-30 dB NRR that still offer excellent hearing protection. Best of all, our prices are less than what you might think!
