ABOUT HEARING LOSS
- Hearing damage can occur at the following exposure intervals: 8hrs at 85dB, 4hrs at 88dB, 2hrs at 91dB, 1hr at 94dB, 30min at 97dB, 15min at 100dB and anything above can cause immediate damage
- Sound levels above 120dB are even painful and anything below 85dB is completely safe
- The normal, everyday conversation is around 60dB - 65dB
- Wind noise from riding a motorcycle, engine testing and racing ranges between 95db - 110db
- A jackhammer noise level range around 115 dB
- A loud music concert can reach levels up to 120dB
- Exposure to high decibel levels even in short amounts of time can result in hearing damage
- Hearing loss due to loud noise can be immediate and permanent
CALCULATING THE LEVEL OF NOISE EXPOSURE
The attenuation rating for these ear plugs is NRR 23dB (Noise Reduction Rating). To calculate the actual amount of decibel deduction applied (23 -7 / 2 = 8). So if you are riding a motorcycle with 95dB wind noise, wearing your earplugs, you will be actually lowering your level of noise exposure to 87dB.
Note: To maximize protection level, hearing protectors must be worn properly.
USAGE & RECOMMENDATIONS
- Make sure your ears are clean before use
- DO NOT over insert the ear plugs. Take your time to get used to the feeling of having earplugs in your ears.
- Make sure that your ear plugs fit properly in your ear canal before attempting to wear a helmet. If your ear canal is too small and the ear plugs protrude from your ears too much then do not attempt to wear a helmet
- For those with deep ear canals and wearing without the included cord, please beware that removal could require both hands or even the assistance of some tweezers
- When inserting and removing the ear plugs, please make sure to do so very slowly with up and down movements
- If you experience discomfort or pain, please stop using immediately
- The effectiveness of the earplugs depends on a number of factors including the size and shape of the ear canal, proper ear plug fitment and noise levels of exposure
- Hearing levels vary from person to person so make sure you can hear warning signals before putting yourself in danger
- Do not over insert the ear plug
- Seek immediate medical assistance if you cannot remove the earplug or if you have any problems with your ears
- Keep out of reach of children for risk of being swallowed
