If you work in the military or law enforcement, getting exposed to
the noise of gunshots and artillery shots is a fact of life.
Unfortunately, this “fact of life” can lead to hearing loss in the long
run —and even right away, depending on where you’re stationed. The
American Speech Language Hearing Association points out that exposure to
140 dB can result to permanent hearing damage. However, almost all
firearms make noise that go beyond 140 dB, which means that you can
experience serious hearing damage while doing your job.
To prevent this from happening, the best thing you can do is to wear
noise-canceling hearing protectors like the Earmonix Shooting &
Impact Earplugs. They are specially designed to protect the wearer from
the noise made by gunshots, explosions, and artillery shots. These ear
plugs are designed for outdoor shooting and if used for indoor shooting
ranges they should be in conjunction with earmuffs.
Unlike solid foam earplugs the Earmonix Shooting & Impact
Earplugs are specially designed to protect your ears from loud sudden
noises such as gunshots or explosions while still allowing you to hear
what’s going on in your environment. When there is no high-impulse
noise present, the earplugs provide a lower NRR rated 12dB noise
reduction this allows you to hear background noise as well as the
voices of the people around you. When sudden loud noises occur the
reactive filters can provide up to 33dB of noise reduction protecting
your hearing from damage. With their special design, they let you
retain sound spatiality and directionality when needed, so you can
easily tell where sounds come from. These are all critical in military
and law enforcement work since you have to be constantly alert and
aware of even the littlest details that will help you make split-second
The Earmonix Shooting & Impact Earplugs are reusable and easy to clean; simply
wipe them with antibacterial tissues or a damp cloth after each use to
keep them hygienic. They also come with a slim-design carry case that
protects the earplugs and keeps them away from dust and dirt.
