EARasers Hi-Fi Reusable Ear Plugs For Dentists And Hygienistsesr-dentist-m
EARasers Hi-Fi Dentist and Hygienist Ear Plugs are the first hearing protection solution to really address the unique hearing protection needs of dentists and dental hygienists. For a long time now, NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) has recognized noise-induced hearing loss as the most common occupational injury, and yet very few good solutions have been found to protect dental professionals. Enter EARasers Hi-Fi Dentist and Hygienist Ear Plugs.Clear, Natural Hearing
With NRR 5 sound blocking, EARasers provide just enough protection from noise to take the edge off, while still allowing you to hear voices clearly -- without that "muffled" feeling you can get from traditional foam ear plugs (which provide much more sound blocking). Wearing EARasers, you can hold conversations with patients without ever needing to remove your hearing protection. Too, EARasers are designed with dental equipment in mind: these plugs specifically reduce up to 19dB of hazardous high-frequency sounds such as drill noise. Not only can EARasers help you protect your hearing from noise-induced damage, but they can also help reduce noise fatigue, as well as helping you avoid the high-pitched ringing that can follow you home after a long day at the office. EARasers let you hear clearly, without distortion, while providing enough protection to take the edge off all that workplace noise.
Perhaps the best feature of the EARaser for Dentists is that these ear plugs practically disappear into your ears. These really are virtually invisible. The plugs themselves are made of soft, transparent, medical grade silicone, and unlike most other ear plugs, they have no central stem that sticks out of your ear canals once the ear plugs are inserted. That means you can get the hearing protection you need and deserve -- discreetly. And the soft silicone material and SmartSeal™ near-custom fit ensure your EARasers will stay in and stay comfortable all day long.
Quick & Easy Insertion: No Hassle, Near-Custom Fit
Inserting EARasers ear plugs is fast and simple. Each pair of plugs is color-coded red/blue for right/left, so you can always be sure you're wearing the right plug in the right ear. (Unlike most off-the-shelf musician's ear plugs, EARasers strive to provide a near-custom fit with their trademarked SmartSeal™ design, so it matters which ear each plug goes into.) To insert EARasers, just pull back and up on the top of the ear, and then gently push the ear plug into your ear canal until your finger is flush with the ear canal opening and the fit feels secure. Opening and closing your mouth a few times during and after this process will help the soft silicone mold and adjust to better fit the inside of your ear. To remove, simply pull the "string" in the center of the ear plug.

Comfortable to wear a full clinical day without removing, can still hear spoken word and radio in the surgery, cuts out the high pitch of the high speed which is a bit un nerving at first because i found myself doubting the air pressure/ speed but it was just that I couldn't hear the highest pitch.ProtectionRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5QualityRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5ComfortRated 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

Although slightly difficult to figure out how to insert due to the awkward shape of the auditory canal (you want to push these in backwards and upwards) and the fact that over time they tend to slide out slowly requiring regular reinsertion with your fingers (a pain as I have to wash my hands each time I do this for cross infection control), they work well. They reduce the overall volume of everything around you. I can still hear the shrill of the drill but its somewhat softened. Talking to others is absolutely possible but requires a but more focus. Also your own voice is louder which takes some time to adjust your speech volume to prevent yelling at others. Overall, these are a great, inexpensive option to protect your hearing. However I would love to compare these to custom made ones (which are much more expensive) to see if there is a big difference. Overall, if you're a dentist, hygienist, therapist or dental assistant, get these and use them religiously. Hearing is very important!ProtectionRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5QualityRated 4.0 on a scale of 1 to 5ComfortRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5

It's small and easy to use, but doesn't block out the high pitch noises like I was expecting. More or less blocks everything like normal earplugs.ProtectionRated 2.0 on a scale of 1 to 5QualityRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5ComfortRated 3.0 on a scale of 1 to 5
