The difference between protection and dedication. What’s really protecting your workers from noise-induced hearing loss? Years of commitment to hearing protection by the dedicated scientists and researchers from 3M Hearing Protection. With a full line of ear muffs, you can rest easy knowing that your workforce — and your business — is protected by 3M science. And that makes a world of difference.
The 3M earmuffs combine 3M PELTOR’s legendary hearing protection knowledge with our most advanced technologies, creating our most comfortable, durable earmuff. A broad range of protection levels make it easier to find the correct level of protection.
Applied to moderate-to-high industrial noises, lightweight 3M™ X Series Earmuffs are the perfect match. With a designed spacer, specially formulated foam liners, and innovative ear cushions, our science can help you to improve attenuation. The X Series is 3M™ E-A-Rfit™ compatible.
Bringing hearing conservation to a whole new level. Find which pair is best for you is as easy as reading the dB number on the side.
Protection that’s specialized. For your industry-specific needs, you can be confident our products will do the job, and that they are backed up by all the support and advice you’ve grown to trust
Outstanding comfort and hearing protection at budget-conscious prices. Models combine excellent attenuation with comfort durability. They provide protective seals without excess pressure.
Hearing Protection Devices (HPDs) are selected based on the noise exposure at the workplace. Other important considerations are comfort, fit, ability to communicate, compatibility with other personal protective equipment and the workplace environment. The following methods can be used to select the most appropriate HPD: Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) or Fit Testing.
The NRR is a single number method that describes the overall sound level reduction across frequencies (attenuation) of a HPD in decibels (dB) based on a laboratory test. Since the NRR is a laboratory test it is recognized that it may overestimate the protection achieved by users in their workplace settings. Therefore, it is recommended that the NRR be de-rated in order to better estimate workplace protection.
