A qualitative assessment of the performance of electronic, level-dependent earmuffs when used on firing ranges
National Acoustic Laboratories, Chatswood, NSW, Australia
A qualitative workplace trial was undertaken to examine the performance of sound restoration, level-dependent electronic hearing protectors (HPs) in a high impulsive noise environment using participants who were very experienced in the regular use of passive HPs. The results indicate that this type of HP is well accepted by experienced users, particularly so, by those who appreciate reliable communication while wearing the devices.
