Safariland Foam Impulse Hearing Protection

ONTARIO, California – Safariland®, a brand of The Safariland Group, a leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today that it is expanding its Impulse Hearing Protection line. The new Foam Impulse Hearing Protection blocks damaging noise while allowing conversation and other ambient sounds in—without the need for expensive electronics.


“I’m amazed how well they knock down noise levels,” stated Rob Leatham, professional competition shooter. “It’s a real game-changer in the fact that I can leave the Foam Impulse earbuds in my ears at all times to protect my hearing, but still hear what’s happening around me. You can’t do that with regular, passive earplugs or earmuffs!”

Safariland’s Foam Impulse Hearing Protection earbuds ($14.99 MSRP) reduce dangerous sound levels by up to 38dB and offer 13dB of continuous sound reduction, all while allowing speech and audio to be heard. The patent-pending Impulse sound filters instantly block large sound waves, while permitting smaller speech and audio waves to pass into the ear.

The Foam Impulse ear buds are washable and won’t interfere with eye protection, shouldering long guns, or impede physical activity. Foam Impulse earbuds are ideal for all-day wear alone or under a traditional headset.

Features:
• Instantly reduces dangerous sound levels while allowing speech and audio to be heard
Impulse Mode = 38db Peak Impulse Reduction + 13db Continuous Reduction
Full-Block Mode = 20db Continuous Reduction
• Universal-fit, memory foam tips
• Removable neck cord
• No batteries required
• Ideal for the shooting range, hunting, tactical training or operational missions

  1. The link appears broken. Doing a search on the Safariland site for “foam impulse” yields no results.

    In any case I’m a bit skeptical; getting over 30dB seems pretty hard even with over-the-ear muffs. And if they can get 38 in “impulse” mode, why can’t they get there in “full block” mode as well? In any case it seems interesting.

  2. I wonder how long until they get sued by vets for failing to block enough sound in the “open” position…asking for a friend…also, that friend’s name is tinnitus…
