Hearos Xtreme Protection Series Ear Plugs

Item is no longer available.
Product Description

Trusted since 1992. Free case. Tested according to ANSI Specs S3.19-1974. The level of noise entering a person's ear, when hearing protector is worn as directed, is closely approximated by the difference between the A-weighted environmental noise level and the NRR. Example: 1. The environmental noise level as measured at the ear is 92 decibels db(A). 2. The NRR is 33 decibels (dB). 3. The level of the noise entering the ear is approximately 59 dB(A). Attenuation Chart (ANSI S3.19-1974): 125 frequency, 38.4 mean attenuation (dB), 2.9 standard deviation (dB); 250 frequency, 40.3 mean attenuation (dB), 3.5 standard deviation (dB); 500 frequency, 43.2 mean attenuation (dB), 4.0 standard deviation (dB); 1000 frequency, 41.8 mean attenuation (dB), 3.8 standard deviation (dB); 2000 frequency, 38.6 mean attenuation (dB), 2.6 standard deviation (dB); 3150 frequency, 45.0 mean attenuation (dB), 2.8 standard deviation (dB); 4000 frequency, 45.7 mean attenuation (dB), 3.5 standard deviation (dB); 6300 frequency, 49.6 mean attenuation (dB), 3.8 standard deviation (dB); 8000 frequency, 47.3 mean attenuation (dB), 4.3 standard deviation (dB). Noise Reduction Rating: 33 decibels (when used as directed). The range of noise reduction rating for existing hearing protectors is approximately 0 to 30 (higher numbers denote greater effectiveness). No. 2826. Federal law prohibits removal of this label prior to purchase. EPA. Label required by US EPA regulation 40 CFR Part 211, subpart B. American made. Made in USA.

Preparation Instructions

Ear plugs must be inserted properly for optimum performance. 1. With clean hands, firmly roll entire ear plug between thumb and fingers to form a thin tight cylinder. 2. Using one hand, gently lift top of ear up to open ear canal. With other hand, insert rounded end of ear plug. 3. With forefinger, hold ear plug in place until it expands to form a comfortable, snug fit. Practice of insertion is recommended. Please refer to the audio and video instructions at Discard product after several uses or as soon as dirt or wax accumulates on ear plugs.

Safety Warning
Keep away from infants. This product is non-toxic but may interfere with breathing if caught in windpipe. For noise environments dominated by frequencies below 500 Hz, the C-weighted environmental noise level should be used. Improper fit of this device will reduce its effectiveness in attenuation noise. Consult the instructions for proper fit. Although hearing protectors can be recommended for protection against the harmful effects of impulsive noise, the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is based on teh attenuation of continuous noise and may not be an accurate indicator of the protection attainable against impulsive noise such as gunfire. The Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) calculated from the attenuation data is 33db. Ear plugs must be properly fitted to attenuate noise effectively. Refer to instructions.
