Medical drills might just be the saddest tool in the trade. They whine all day! Most peak somewhere between 3K-6KHz which is exactly where the Earasers give you the most protection. The human voice is centered at 250Hz for Men and 300Hz for Women, so you will still be able to hear conversations amazingly well, while wearing these. Even better, you won't have to take them in and out due to discomfort or itching or sweating which could be a major pain due to contamination issues. Just leave them in all day…you might even go home with them in and forget they are there! Truly it happens a lot, as these are just that comfortable and clear sounding.
Medical drills are known to generate excessive high frequencies, that over time can cause damaging hearing loss. Most drills generate noise above 2KHz - and that is where Earasers Earplugs provide the most protection: between 2KHz-8Khz. That may only be two octaves of vocal range, but it can cause tinnitus and ear fatigue after a full day on the job. Earasers allow voices to come through the filter, but not the NOISE! We guarantee these will work and that you can wear them all day with absolute comfort. You won't ever have to take them out and risk getting them contaminated. Just leave them in until you are finished with your day.
Features Affordable – EARasers are a fraction of the price of custom earplugs. Comfortable – EARasers are made of soft medical grade silicone and designed with a “Smart Seal”, this provides “custom-like” feel that moves naturally if your jaw cause motion in the ear canal. Re-Usable – EARasers can be carefully cleaned and re-used. No more tossing away used up plugs. Better for the environment. Retain Clarity – EARasers Open Ear Design allows natural sound to travel closer to the eardrum before being filtered. Using “Resonant EAR Acoustic Technology”, means no more muffled, or plugged up, sound. Protect your hearing – EARasers are designed with a variable “V” filter, which reduces up to 19dB of dangerous high frequency sounds, while retaining the lows and Ultra-highs clearly. Virtually Invisible – EARasers have an “Inner Ear Design” which makes them virtually unnoticeable. Innovative – The World's first flat frequency response earplug [+/-4.5dB; 125Hz – 8KHz]
Tip on sizes: 75% of men use Medium (we are talking full grown, "I got my man body now!" type)
75% of women use Small
75% of young adults use Small
Most people already know if they have small ears due to their experience with other earbuds. Don't worry, there is some definite overlap in the sizes. If you guess wrong, you can always exchange them within 30 days. Or, they make great fishing lures! Seriously.
If you think you have tight ear canals, then go for the small. If you have been practicing ear canal stretching just for this moment, and you are sure your ears can park a mini-van and a drive-in speaker on the side (remember those), then you might belong to our 1% LARGE club. We rarely see them, but we know you are out there!
Funny thing is, the size of the external ear (the pinnae if you keep a dictionary handy) rarely has anything to do with the size of the opening where these bad boyz go. So, don't look at the outside. Take a look at our sizing pictures, take a picture of your own ear, you know where the oval shadow shows up (and not where you keep those spare potatoes) and have someone help you determine what size you really are. It's great fun for the whole family, and the bridge club too!
