  • *U.S. EPA specifies the NRR as the measure of hearing protector noise reduction. However, 3M makes no warranties as to the suitability of the NRR for this purpose. 3M strongly recommends personal fit testing of hearing protectors. Research suggests that users may receive less noise reduction than indicated by the attenuation label value(s) on the packaging due to variation in fit, fitting skill, and motivation of the user. Refer to applicable regulations or guidance on how to adjust attenuation label values. It is recommended that the NRR be reduced by 50% to better estimate typical protection

3M™ E-A-Rsoft™ FX Earplugs have a large bell shape of soft foam for a comfortable fit with a flared end for easy removal. This earplug model is made of a soft, slow-recovery foam that also helps make insertion easier. Additionally, these earplugs have 3M's maximum noise reduction rating for hearing protection.

The 3M E-A-Rsoft Yellow Neon Blasts Earplugs, Hearing Conservation, seal the earcanal with soft, slow-recovery foam for excellent noise reduction and reliable hearing protection. The bell shape allows for easy fitting and removal. Earplugs come in a poly bag to keep them clean prior to use. Recommended applications include assembly and mechanical, chipping, chiseling, cleaning, drilling, furnace operations, grinding, heavy equipment operations, machining, metal repair, painting, pouring/casting, power fastening, riveting, sanding, sawing and welding. These earplugs are commonly used in the following industries: agriculture, automotive, chemicals, construction, general manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals.

These earplugs have a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 33 dB. Earplugs are made of a polyurethane. Test compatible with 3M E-A-Rfit Validation System. The NRR may overestimate the hearing protection provided during typical use. 3M recommended reducing the NRR by 50% for estimating the amount of noise reduction provided.

Not only is noise present in our daily routines and recreational activities, but upwards of 5 million Americans, possibly as many as 30 million, work in hazardous noise on a daily basis. Estimates from the National Institutes of Health suggest that hearing loss afflicts 28 million Americans. About one third of those cases are at least partially attributable to noise. Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection. Hearing protector effectiveness is specified by a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR), typically ranging from 15-35 decibels
