Redesigned earplugs provide better fit and comfort
Howard Leight says it redesigned and updated its AirSoft multiple-use earplugs. Introduced nearly 30 years ago, AirSoft was the first earplug to use an internal air pocket. The company says its updated AirSoft includes new material, new design features and new engineering technologies that provide better fit, comfort and performance. The new design incorporates a series of patented, noise-blocking fins within the pocket. As the air pocket compresses in the ear canal, these fins interweave to create a noise-blocking barrier optimized to the wearer’s ear canal. The company replaced the original PVC material in AirSoft with a more user-friendly TPE which also increases comfort, especially during long-time wear, says the company. AirSoft is available in corded and uncorded versions, and at NRR 27, AirSoft provides the industry’s highest attenuation available in a multiple-use earplug, says the company.
