New Sync Stereo Earmuffs from Howard Leight Combine Hearing Protection with High-Fidelity Sound Quality
acoustic earcup design, volume management technology, and personal hearing
protection, Honeywell Safety Products introduces Sync™, the next generation of stereo earmuffs from
Howard Leight®. Sync delivers the appropriate level of hearing protection in hazardous
noise environments along with high-fidelity stereo sound from a user’s portable
audio MP3 players.
“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 discourage
their use,” said Renee S. Bessette, COHC, Global Brand Manager, Howard Leight /
Honeywell Safety Products. “By contrast, Sync stereo earmuffs use new designs
and technologies that provide both
hearing protection and true listening enjoyment. Sync entices use to deliver
protection from noise-induced hearing loss on the job or at home.”
Sync stereo earmuffs feature:
from Hazardous Noise - With an SNR
(Single Number Rating) of 31, Sync provides consistent hearing protectionand ensures appropriate
attenuation in most industrial environments. Sync’s Volume Management Technology™
manages sound levels reaching the user’s ear and prevents the user from
turning the volume up too high.
In and Go – There are no volume knobs or power switches to co-ordinate nor
batteries to replace. Ease-of-use
is enhanced by maintaining volume and power control through the MP3
simply plug in their MP3 player or
personal audio devices and listen.
Listening – Sync can be used with a users’ own MP3 player, mobile phone
and other personal audio devices and is ideally suited for use at work or
at home. Its
technologically advanced acoustic bass chamber enhances the bass sounds
that are typically sacrificed in industrial stereo earmuffs; which
eliminates the need for users to ‘crank up’ the volume.
Style - Sync’s
earcup design is inspired by DJ styling, and the sound quality is on a par
with other professional audio headphones. Sync’s stylish design easily
surpasses other industrial earmuffs. Both comfort and fit are ensured by
its padded diamond-patterned headband and its reinforced adjustable slides
that keep it in place when worn.
Sync is now available through industrial safety distributors in Europe.
