Ear muffs fit over the ears to protect against potentially harmful sound levels that can cause hearing loss. These safety ear muffs consist of a headband with padded ear cups that seal around the ears to provide hearing protection by dampening surrounding noise. Compared to ear plugs, ear muffs provide a longer life and a more consistent fit for reaching their optimal noise reduction rating (NRR). They're also more visible than ear plugs for confirming that workers are complying with hearing safety rules. Protective ear muffs are ideal for environments with intermittent noise because they can rest around your neck when they're not in use and don't require rolling to reequip. Pair them with ear plugs to improve the NRR by 5 decibels (dB).
Push-to-listen ear muffs reduce sound levels by using electronics to actively filter out constant, loud noise. They allow noise filtering to be paused as needed in order to speak with coworkers. They're often used by road construction crews and in other settings where there's a need to communicate in the midst of constant background noise.
