E.A.R., Inc. introduces HearPlugZ-DF, a multifunctional, dual-filtered hearing protector designed to allow users to hear speech better in noisy environments. Since standard ear protectors sometimes go unused because they minimize one's ability to hear critical sounds needed for communications and environmental awareness, the company developed advanced technology that incorporates breathable, moisture-resistant acoustical filters that improve sound quality when the ear is overloaded with excess noise—whether continuous or impact.

The new ear protectors are available in a choice of colors,
in three sizes, and with a removable cord. The exterior filter can be easily removed if less attenuation is desired or if the user wants to connect to radio communications. Custom sets of protectors can be obtained from E.A.R., Inc., or one of its authorized providers.
