Ear defenders with the X factor
For more than 20 years, 3M Peltor has been a leading hearing conservation provider with a suite of high attenuating and high comfort hearing protection products.
The X- Series earmuffs are 3M's latest advancement in hearing conservation. New technologies in comfort, design and protection all come together in this groundbreaking earmuff line. X- Series earmuffs feature an innovative new design on the cup as well as a breathable headband. These earmuffs are designed to be lighter than competing earmuffs while providing superior attenuation.
The X4A model uses a newly designed spacer, specially formulated foam liners and innovative ear cushions to help improve attenuation. This lightweight, lower-profile earmuff helps with compatibility with other personal protective equipment and is designed for protection against moderate-to-high level industrial noise and other loud sounds. It features an electrically insulated wire headband, often referred to as “dielectric”.
The X5 earmuff offers 3M's highest SLC80 (35dB) which makes them ideal for high noise environments. The high attenuation delivered by the X5A earmuffs is possible as a result of a combination of advanced technologies including: newly designed spacers, specially formulated earcup liners and innovative foam contained in the cushions. It also features an electrically insulated wire headband, often referred to as 'dielectric'.
“3M Peltor is at the forefront of hearing conservation,” says Luciana Macedo, 3M senior occupational hygienist.
“The introduction of the X-Series earmuffs helps users with most noise applications. The X-Series delivers superior attenuation and greater user comfort.”
