Big Protection Sized for Smaller Ears

Honeywell Safety Products has added MAX Small earplugs to its flagship Howard Leight MAX single-use earplug family.

MAX Small is designed to offer people with smaller ear canals a more comfortable fit and high attenuation (NRR 30), the manufacturer says. The unit has the same bell shape and patented varied-cell polyurethane foam as the standard MAX earplug, but is 20% smaller.

MAX Small earplugs are available in corded and cordless models.

Honeywell developed the new model in response to customer feedback and evaluations of its VeriPRO earplug testing system.  Employees with smaller ear canals reported trouble obtaining a good fit and adequate protection from other high-attenuating roll-down foam earplugs, the manufacturer said.

Comfort, Protection

“The right earplug should feel comfortable in the ear canal without compromising protection,” says Renee S. Bessette, COHC, Global Brand Manager, Howard Leight / Honeywell Safety Products. “MAX Small meets that need by ensuring a high level of attenuation and a more comfortable fit as in a single-use foam earplug.”

End-user trials involving automobile manufacturing workers and safety inspectors showed a better fit and higher attenuation with the smaller plugs, according to Honeywell.

MAX Small is available in both corded and cordless models.

Under the Howard Leight brand, Honeywell Safety Products is a global provider of passive and intelligent hearing protection.
