Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs.
I’m not sure if I can really explain how they work, but they do. You can visit SensGard’s web site where they explain their technology. Somehow sound is deflected up the plastic sides. It really does cut down on the high decibel sounds and you can hear and talk to people while machines are running.
They have stood up very well over the past year. They come with replacement earpieces, but I still have the originals on after a year moderate use.
They come a few different colors, but I liked the blue. Although it might be time order a couple more pairs, as spares and for visitors that might come to the shop. You can find them at Amazon.com and several other places.
