Ear Defenders

Ear defenders, also known as earmuffs, are designed for hearing protection from various levels of hazardous noise pollution. All ear defenders carry an SNR rating (Single Number Rating) which is the European industry-recognised standard level of protection offered. Using the right ear defender protects your hearing and can safeguard against the development of Tinnitus and hearing loss. For more information about the different types of ear defenders and how they work, please see our ear defenders guide. Working in loud environments such as factories, construction sites, it is important to protect your hearing, RS Components has a range of ear defenders from some leading brands such as 3M, Peltor, Delta Plus, JSP, Alpha Solway and our own brand RS PRO.



Ear Defender Types



Ear defenders protect you from damaging your hearing when working in noisy environments. Two types of ear defenders include passive and electronic that both encase the ear for protection.



Passive ear defenders use acoustic foam to absorb sounds and acts as a barrier to stop sound reaching your ears. They use acoustic foam to attenuate incoming sounds, whilst offering comfort for prolonged use.



Electronic ear defenders have a similar makeup to passive ear defenders, however, a small microphone detects noise and adjusts the level of attenuation to provide a level of protection and noise protection.



Communication Ear Defenders uses the base of electronic ear defenders with the addition of a microphone, radio and Bluetooth functionalities. They offer similar passive and electronic attenuation, blocking out low to medium noise, whilst allowing you to hear higher frequencies such as voices and alarms clearly. FM Radio ear defenders allow the user to listen to music or the radio whilst working. Lastly, the built-in communication allows the user to listen or speak and listen to other workers on the same frequency when working and still staying protected.



Types of communication ear defenders



Communication ear defenders can be ’listen-only’ or ’speak and listen”. Push-to-speak and push-to-listen ear defenders require you to push a button in-order-to hear or be heard. Noise-cancelling microphones reduce the background noise when you are speaking, aiding clarity of communication.
