Honeywell Safety Products has introduced Sync, a new generation of hearing protection from Howard Leight designed for “true listening enjoyment.”

Sync is designed to deliver the proper levels of hearing protection in hazardous noise environments with high-fidelity stereo sound from users’ personal portable audio MP3 players, according to the manufacturer.

Honeywell says the product optimizes acoustical earcup design, volume management technology, and personal hearing protection.

“Most stereo earmuffs used in industry today provide a moderate level of hearing protection, but often sacrifice the sound quality of the attached MP3 players, which can work to discourage their use,” said Renee S. Bessette, COHC, Global Brand Manager, Howard Leight / Honeywell Safety Products.

Product Features

According to the manufacturer, Sync stereo earmuffs feature:

  • Protection from hazardous noise, with an NRR of 25 that “ensures appropriate attenuation in most industrial environments”;
  • Volume Management Technology, to safely manage sound levels reaching the user’s ear; and
  • Plug and Play functionality without volume knobs, power switches or batteries.

The earmuffs can be used with a user’s MP3 player, mobile phone and other personal audio devices, and the manufacturer touts sound quality “on par with other professional audio headphones.”

A padded headband and reinforced forkslides keep the earmuffs in place, Honeywell says.

Howard Leight/Honeywell Safety Products is a global provider of passive and intelligent hearing protection products and services, and the founder of the HearForever initiative. Howard Leight is a division of Sperian Hearing Protection LLC.

Just what we need ... someone playing air guitar to Guns n' Roses when they should be paying attention to the guy at the end of the hose. This has "bad idea for the workplace" written all over it. Oh well, I guess I'm just tainted from being under the hood and having had my share of flighty pot tenders. Rock On Dudes!
