|Now an authorized hearing protector for use by soldiers and Department of the Army civilians!|
Not all noise reduction is the same. Hearing protection for constant sound isn't the same as hearing protection for impulse noises such as gunfire. Moldex understands that difference, and Moldex BattlePlugs are a compact and efficient all-in-one battlefield hearing protection solution. The key to BattlePlugs' effectiveness lies in the Dual Mode Protection System. Each BattlePlug ear plug has a cap that can be opened and closed on the fly, providing two different modes of protection:
Closed Cap: This mode provides NRR 24 protection from continuous sound. This mode provides conventional protection from hazardously loud noises, protecting the ears in a variety of noisy environments.
Open Cap: This mode provides low, NRR 9 (medium size) or NRR 12 (small and large sizes) protection from sound, allowing the wearer to hear voices clearly and maintain good situational awareness. But when an impulse noise occurs, the unique filter inside the ear plug body instantly reduces the noise, protecting the ears. And the louder the blast, the higher the noise reduction.
The cap is easy to use. It can be opened and closed while already in the ear, never requiring removal to change modes. BattlePlugs are corded for convenience. They may be easily washed and reused, and they come with a Pocket-Pak® carry case to keep them clean and safe between uses. Each pair includes 2 BattlePlug ear plugs, cord, Pocket-Pak® carrying case, chain, and instructions. Replacement tips are available separately.
