Plugfones Protector™ Industrial Earplug-Earbud Hybrids provide protection from hazardous noise, with the ability to listen to music. The Plugfones Protector™ Series of earphones is designed for workers in high-noise industrial environments. Now workers no longer have to choose between the hearing protection they need and the music they want. With the earplug tips blocking out ambient noise, the tuned speakers can deliver high quality sound that is clear, rich, and satisfying.

Protector™ is built to last. The 54" TuffCord™ cable is tear-resistant, and the audio jack is double-reinforced, so these earphones can stand up to hours of use, day after day. These are also sweat-resistant, so workers never need to fret over their earphones in hot working conditions. Protector™ earphones are light, weighing in at just 10 grams (0.35 oz), preventing wearer fatigue even after a long day.

Plugfones™' top priority is protection from sound. These earphones come with ComforTwist™ foam tips (NRR 23) and ComforTiered™ silicone tips (NRR 26) for a secure and comfortable fit. Plugfones™ Protector™ earplug tips have been fully tested and found compliant according to ANSI S3.19-1974 standards for noise reduction.

Volume Limiting (VL) Technology Available

Available only on industrial Plugfones products, WorkSafe Volume Limiting Technology keeps speaker volume below 82 dB and compliant with OSHA's max volume guidelines.

    earphones

    Volume level lower than previous pairs I have bought. New shape of foam plugs doesn't work well for my ears leading to high ambient noise penetration and reduced effectiveness. I can't use them for my intended purpose.

    Reduces about 30% of noise, with ok sound.

    I'm not a huge guy, so perhaps the Plugfones don't fit me perfectly. I do wear ear plugs frequently, so I do know how to insert them properly.

    The plugfones do reduce exhaust noise from my motorcycle which is great, and they are reasonably comfortable. As earphones, they are fairly average. If they are not inserted perfectly, there is no bass at all. When you put your helmet on, a little bit of wiggle can disturb the perfect placement which means no bass will be heard. This is with the silicon tips.

    With the foam tips, it's even worse. You can't compress the foam enough to really get a good fit, as the earphones take up most of the space inside the foam.

    For $38 they are great. Knowing the sound quality is hit and miss I probably wouldn't buy the more expensive Bluetooth wireless version.

    But realistically, do they reduced ear damaging noise? Yes.

    Can you listen to music through them at a sensible volume? Yes.

    Are they priced competitively? Yes.

    Should you buy? Yes.

    A bit quiet. Isolates noise pretty good though.
