dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ (single)
The dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ allows for in-ear radio reception as well as exceptional hearing protection. It is custom fit to the individual wearer for maximum comfort using Skinsoft™ medical silicone. It is suitable anywhere two-way radio communication is used, and as it is dual vented, the Communicate Ear™ will enhance interpersonal communication in noise as well.
dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ hearing protectors are usually paired with a dB Blocker™ Classic or Grip in the opposite ear.
The dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ is a hearing protector that is actually comfortable to wear. Most hearing damage arises when an ear plug is removed for conversation and comfort. The dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ is made to fit the individual’s ear exactly and stay in place without creating pressure in the ear so comfort is not an issue. This gives the worker a product that provides effective hearing protection and stays in the ear all day long.
The dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ contains a proprietary frequency-tuned filter that allows the wearer to hear localized sounds (such as buzzers and alarms) and enhances interpersonal communication, as well as a connection for a receiver button to provide clear radio connectivity. In fact, people can communicate in noise better while wearing their dB Blockers™ than if they were to remove them.
With a comfortable fit and the ability to communicate with a dB Blocker™ in place, workers will comply with the Hearing Loss Prevention Program. This protection can be worn for a complete shift, without the need to remove it to communicate, eat lunch, or relieve pressure. Anytime a hearing protector is removed, even for a short period of time, you are exposed to damaging noise. Noise exposure is cumulative.
The dB Blocker™ Communicate Ear™ provides:
- A high degree of noise protection while permitting radio communication
- Near lossless protection when radio button not attached
- Clear radio transmissions due to custom filtering placed after receiver button, which eliminates damage from feedback and high volume transmissions
dB Blockers™ are much less expensive to use than disposable earplugs or muffs. You can save up to 60% over 5 years on a program when an entire facility is fit. The cost per month for dB Blockers™ is lower because you can wear them for 5 years. Ask us to show you how dB Blockers™ can be a cost effective solution for your hearing protection needs.
