Improved earplugs more comfortable, easier to insert

September 14, 2004

Howard Leight® Industries has introduced an improved version of its MAX® earplug designed to be easier to insert and more comfortable to wear while providing an NRR of 33 dB.

The new version is slightly longer than the original, and the flange of its bell-shaped curve more closely follows the contour of the ear canal entrance. The new design coupled with softer material formulation makes the earplug easier to insert and remove and counters a tendency to back out of users' ears, the company says.
