Hearing protection

Etymotics hearing protection products are available in earplugs, electronic earplugs or earplugs plus earphones.

Exposure to noise from loud machinery and construction, and the resulting hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is just one of the many occupational hazards with which modern professionals have to contend.

Etymotic’s safety line of earplugs and earphones reduce the risk of noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus. Used for years by musicians and others exposed to high sound levels, these products are now being highlighted as essential equipment for workers.

Earplugs: Etymotic’s HD•Safety earplugs are the world’s highest fidelity ready-fit earplugs. These low-cost earplugs reduce sound levels while preserving clarity, instead of muffling the sound. HD•Safety earplugs are available in two sizes to fit most ears.

Electronic earplugs: Users who need protection from sudden, loud impacts or sustained loud sounds but also want to hear naturally when sound levels are safe have a solution in the HD•15 electronic earplugs. These electronic earplugs allow safe sounds to pass through, as though nothing is in the ears, yet instantaneously react to reduce loud sounds and protect hearing. 

Earphones: Listening to music in cabs can put hearing at risk if the volume has to be raised to hear the music over the machine noise. Etymotic’s HD•Safety Earplugs + Earphones block external sound (like earplugs) to reduce external noise and are engineered for safe listening and exceptional sound quality. High-definition sound reproduction means no need to use high playback levels to hear every detail of the music. Risk to hearing is minimized, regardless of the volume setting. 

Etymotic has a long history of commitment to hearing health, and those in the building and construction communities can now avail themselves of the best products on the planet to protect their ears, so that hearing loss is one less occupational hazard to worry about.
