Howard Leight’s new Pilot push-in ear plug for occupational hearing protection features an innovative hybrid design that combines the performance and cost savings of Quiet multiple-use ear plug with the superior comfort of Max single-use ear plug to deliver long-wearing comfort and total control over fit. Pilot's ergonomic design provides instant hearing protection upon proper insertion, and defends against additional occupational noise hazards with an NRR 26 rating, the company said. It offers simple fit by inserting easily into the user’s ear with a simple fingertip twist of the non-obtrusive Navigation Stem. Pilot's soft, pearl-skinned Howard Leight polyurethane foam is resilient and easy-to-clean, delivering reliable, long-wearing performance, the company said. The push-in ear plug adapts to the shape of the ear canal for a more comfortable fit, whether it’s eight minutes or eight hours of hearing protection.
