Types of 3M Earmuffs
There are two ways of categorising 3M Earmuffs:
- Style: The style of the earmuffs and how they are worn: and
- Acoustical Properties: Their acoustical properties and material components.
3M Earmuffs Based on Style
3M earmuffs based on style fall under three distinct types: headband, neckband and helmet-mounted or attached.
- 3M Headband Earmuffs: Structured similarly to headphones, this type features a band that goes over the top of the head.
- 3M Neckband Earmuffs: This style has ear cups connected to a band that instead of going over and above the head, goes around the back of the neck.
- 3M Helmet Attached Earmuffs: Fit onto compatible Hard Hats. When in use, they fold down. When not in use, they fold up.
Earmuffs Based on Acoustical Properties and Structure
There are three primary types of 3M Earmuffs based on their acoustical properties: passive, active or electronic, and communication (including 3M Bluetooth Earmuffs).
3M Passive Earmuffs
Passively attenuating earmuffs weaken signals due to their components and structure. Passive earmuffs do not include any electronic components and feature cupped foam with a durable plastic coating that effectively attenuates external noise.
3M Passive Earmuffs work great in many high-noise settings and offer great value for high levels of Hearing Protection.
3M Electronic and Active Earmuffs
3M Active Earmuffs are similar in size to 3M Passive Earmuffs and as their name suggests, active or electronic earmuffs feature high-tech electronic components that allow a user to screen out loud sounds whilst amplifying conversations and other sounds the user needs to be aware of.
This selective amplification or dampening feature of 3M Electronic Earmuffs makes them ideal for worksites where listening to machinery and other workers is required.
With electronic earmuffs, a wearer can listen to outside sound sources, such as other machines and their supervisor or colleagues’ voices, whilst enjoying comfortable protection from loud noise.
In settings where it’s critical for users to hear their surroundings and communicate effectively with co-workers, there’s 3M Peltor Earmuffs with built in communication technology.
Workers can communicate through 3M 2-Way Radio Communication Earmuffs or 3M Bluetooth Earmuffs which connect to a mobile phone. These 3M Communication Earmuffs enable team members to communicate clearly without removal of their earmuffs.
3M 2-Way Radio Communication Earmuffs feature integrated two-way radios in the headsets that allow for clear communication.
3M Bluetooth Earmuffs are becoming more and more popular as workers can call and receive calls onsite. 3M Bluetooth Earmuffs also make it easy for workers in noisy environments to hear what the other person is saying whilst the loud noises are attenuated.
Many industries use 3M Bluetooth Earmuffs to facilitate clear, hands-free communication in noisy settings whilst providing hearing protection.
