Customer Reviews
3M™ Banded Hearing Protector is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hearing protection I have been using this hearing protection for a couple of years in my woodworking shed, decreases the sound of power tools to a reasonable level. I would recommend this to a friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1000% better off This very simple device is perfect! It blocks out the right amount of the bad sounds that were actually causing me to have very stress headaches. The worst sound was a high pitched hiss sound from compressed air being blown at 2 second intervals for most of an entire 8 hour shift.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for a while These are great except the band breaks after about a year. You would think a company that makes tape and plastic items could make the headband out of some plastic or polymer that lasts a while. And like another reviewer said, the price for these things is ridiculous! They should sell for half what they sell for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product but too expensive...would not pay so much again. These banded ear protectors are just perfect for working around workshop machinery that is operated only a few minutes a day. The band makes them always ready to use if you keep them around your neck. They are light weight and comfortable. I paid over $6 at Home Depot and will have to locate replacement tips at some point, not finding any at the point of purchase. At least one spare set of tips should be included for that price. I believe the price should be under $3 packaged as they are sold now.

*CAUTION: 3M strongly recommends fit testing of hearing protectors. Research suggests that many users will receive less noise reduction than indicated by the NRR due to variation in hearing protector fit, fitting skill and motivation of the user. If the NRR is used, 3M recommends that it be reduced by 50% or in accordance with applicable regulations.
