Fit and Forget Hearing Protection

Hearing Armor is the new environmental sound filter standard for hearing protection.

The patented technology was specifically designed to intercept dangerous impact sounds that contribute to hearing loss from gunfire, explosions, construction, hammering, or any sound source that produces an instantaneous sound pressure increase. Hearing Armor earplugs also reduce the level of continuous noise often found around machinery, vehicles, or other industrial settings. Both impact sounds and loud continuous noise are dangerous sounds that damage hearing do not cause pain or blood loss, however, neurosensory cells in the cochlea are damaged and overtime fail to transmit neurosensory signals required to hear.

Most people who need to protect their hearing do not wear earplugs because when typical earplugs are inserted into their ears, much of the background sounds they need to hear for safety is also blocked out. Therefore, in many cases, someone who should wear hearing protection does not. If they do, frequently they remove the earplug to hear spoken instructions or conversation. Hearing Armor is designed to be a fit and forget earplug. Hearing Armor can be used under earmuffs as an extra protective feature as well.

360 Degree Hearing

Anything placed in the ear canal will diminish the ability to accurately determine which direction the sound is coming from. Hearing Armor also decreases this ability, however not significantly. A person detecting a sound from behind will be able to determine from which direction the sound is coming from.

"Today, we went to the shooting range and put the Hearing Armor ear plugs to the test. I’ve tried numerous types of plugs & ear muff-style protection and by far, the Hearing Armor technology outperforms the competition hands (& guns) down. The most amazing part is simply being able to have a crystal clear conversation with those around you and have these little plugs work their magic when it’s time to shoot! It’s incredible!"

To Insert Hearing Armor Inserts
Position one arm behind your head and pull your ear gently, but firmly up and away from your head, use your free hand to fit Hearing Armor. Gently insert Hearing Armor into your ear until you feel it close off your ear canal. Don’t worry about crushing the soft outer end of Hearing Armor. It quickly springs back into shape when you stop pressing on it. When Hearing Armor is properly fitted the last flange should be inside your ear canal.

Fitting the Foam Hearing Armor Ear Inserts
Roll the foam plug between your thumb and two fingers lengthwise until the foam plug compresses into a narrow cylinder. Insert into ear canal as Hearing Armor instructions indicate, wait 3-5 minutes before entering into dangerous noise environments. Use of the “hum” test below will confirm a good fit.

Testing the Fit
The Tug Test Pull very gently back and forth on the Hearing Armor insert. If there is resistance and you feel a gentle suction in you ear, then the insert has probably achieved a seal. In contrast, if the plug pulls out easily, an adequate seal was not achieved.

The Hum Test
After you place one Hearing Armor insert , hum or say “ahhh.” If the ear is properly sealed, then the sound of your voice will seem louder in that ear. If your voice does not seem louder, then an adequate seal was not achieved. Repeat the process after you have inserted the Hearing Armor in both ears. If your voice sounds equally loud in both ears, then the earplugs have probably achieved a seal. If your voice sounds louder in one ear than in the other, an adequate seal was not achieved in the ear in which your voice is not as loud.

Cleaning Hearing Armor
Hearing Armor is a reusable ear insert. If Hearing Armor gets dirty, gently wash it in warm, soapy water and rinse it in warm water. Stand Hearing Armor upright on a paper towel or other absorbent material to allow it to drain and dry.
Life Span of Hearing Armor Silicone and Foam Ear Inserts

Hearing Armor Silicone models have a properly and hygienically used life span of up to 6 months or more depending on the user. The Hearing Armor Foam models have a properly and hygienically used life span of up to 4 months. Both Silicone and Foam models simply require the cleaning steps suggested above.

What makes Hearing Armor work is a thin film stretched across the inside of Hearing Armor near the end that goes in your ear. If that film is damaged, Hearing Armor will not work and you should stop using Hearing Armor immediately and use the hearing protection device you were using before.

"We  had the opportunity to test drive several pairs of Hearing Armor at the Fairfield Fire Training Center a few months back. I personally donned a pair of Hearing Armor and was amazed at the results. Good sound, such as normal speaking voice and normal radio traffic actually appeared to be amplified. The bad sound; diesel engines, air horns, the sound made raising and extending the aerial device was actually minimized or reduced. I actually had to turn down the volume on my portable radio because it was too loud."
