the sound level are known to be high, like factories, industrial go downs, airport tarmacs etc must be
provided with high-end hearing protection devices that would help in noise reduction and facilitate

Noisy occupations, such as working in factories or on road works, used to be the most common cause of
hearing problems. Experts suggest that apart from hearing loss, migraine, ringing in the ear, muscle
tension, stressed tissues, heightened aggression, high blood pressure, headaches, irritation,
restlessness, and physiological orders are few other medical problems that occur from exposure to high
noise. While providing appropriate hearing protection devices may seem like the best solution in a
comprehensive hearing conservation program, the fact is that that there are very few personnel wearing
these HPDs due to improper selection. Hence a great many number of workers are exposed to potential
hearing loss.

be comfortable to wear. As all earplugs are required to carry a Noise Reduction Rating, or NNR rating,

designs that facilitate effective communication subtracting the adverse effects of noise. Employees can
now make use of safety earmuffs and earplugs with great benefits that are reasonably priced. There are

discreetly around the neck, or in a pocket resembling an MP3 player. These ear plugs can be used by
workers in traditional settings as well as new markets including the domestic, entertainment, hospitality
and security industries. Organizations must invest in hearing devices that come with a high-noise
communication technology solution that enhances the speech in real-time, where users can not only
