Honeywell’s new protective headset is designed to allow workers to stay connected while continuing to protect hearing on noisy job sites. The new Honeywell Howard Leight Sync Wireless protective earmuffs integrate Bluetooth wireless technology allowing workers to talk on the phone, connect with co-workers, get instructions and perform tasks without sacrificing hearing protection in noisy or dangerously loud environments.
“Noise-induced hearing loss is a significant safety risk in industrial and commercial settings, so ensuring workers keep hearing protection in place at all times is critical,” said Lisa Steckert, product manager, hearing protection, for Honeywell Industrial Safety. “Slipping off a headset to take a call creates safety risks.”
The headsets connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to most smartphones and features a boom microphone that enables workers to answer calls and carry on clear phone conversations while keeping the phone safely in a pocket. The wireless format eliminates the need for cords or cabling that can pose trip, slip or hand hazards.
The new headset’s Bluetooth 4.1 offers improved connectivity and reliability of data transfer and use with 4G cellphones. Ergonomic design allows for simple operation, with volume control buttons and flashing coloured lights to indicate different settings. The boom microphone provides crystal-clear communication in noisy environments and rotates out of the way when not in use.
The headset’s volume management technology limits output volume from portable audio devices to 82 dB, while air flow control technology provides optimal noise reduction across all frequencies to NRR 25.
The steel headband construction and padded earcups provide long-wearing comfort and use.
