Comparison of hearing protection solutions
*PPE compatibility: Compatibility of hearing protection with other personal protective equipment such as goggles, face shields…
There are different hearing protection solutions: ear muffs, disposable foam earplugs... The best hearing protection is the one that is the most effective and most comfortable and therefore the one that will be worn 100% of the time by workers exposed to noise. Discover below a comparison of the different hearing protections.
Although ear muffs and disposable foam earplugs are often the preferred solution for employers, workers tend not to wear this type of protection for various reasons: discomfort, ineffectiveness, isolation... Since each ear has a unique shape, custom made hearing protection fits perfectly and offers the best effectiveness and comfort. Custom fit earplugs allow to communicate thanks to an acoustic filter that reduces noise while maintaining the quality of conversations. Custom fit earplugs are also more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than standard solutions because they can be reused for many years and are easily cleaned.
