3M PELTOR Optime III Neckband Ear Defenders (Box of 10)

If you want to protect workers against hearing loss and damage in an extremely loud environment, the 3M Peltor Optime III Neckband Ear Defenders (Box of 10) are just what you need. Not only do they reduce noise by up to 35dB, their extra large padded ear cups make them comfortable enough to wear on site all day.

The neckband feature of this model of Optime III Earmuffs not only helps protect a worker's ears, they can actually increase the worker's safety overall. This is because a neckband allows the wearer to easily combine the ear defenders with other protective equipment. Something that isn't possible with the typical headband earmuff design. 

What's Included?

  • 10  x Pairs of Ear Defenders

  • SNR (Simplified Noise Reduction): 35dB
  • One universal size

What Are the Safety Specifications of the 3M PELTOR Optime III Noise Cancelling Ear Defenders?

The 3M PELTOR Optime III Noise Cancelling Ear Defenders have been tested in accordance with a number of specifications to ensure your safety. The standards that the ear muffs meet include:

EN 352-1

The Ear Muffs meet EN 352-1 for ear protection. This means that they are suitable as ear defenders in loud conditions.

SNR (Simplified Noise Reduction)

The Ear Defenders achieve an SNR score of 35dB. Further attenuation ratings are as follows:

  • High frequency = 40dB
  • Medium frequency = 32dB
  • Low frequency = 23dB

What Are the Uses of the 3M PELTOR Optime III Noise Cancelling Ear Defenders?

The noise cancelling ear muffs are ideal for use in extremely loud environments. Following are some suitable applications:

  • Airports
  • Power stations
  • Marine engine rooms
  • Print works
  • Mining

How Comfortable Are the 3M PELTOR Noise Cancelling Ear Muffs?

The large, soft cushions of the ear muffs will reduce pressure on the ears and head. The inside of the cups are large, which helps to minimise an uncomfortable build-up of moisture and heat.

Double-Casing Design to Prevent High-Frequencies

The double-casing of the ear muffs minimises resonance in the holder casing. This means allows for maximum attenuation of high-frequency sounds.

What Is Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) and Noise Attenuation?

The SNR ratio of ear-protection indicates the amount by which background noise will be reduced, or attenuated. So if you work around machinery with a background noise of 100dB, then ear muffs with an SNR of 32 will reduce the background noise to 68dB, protecting your ears. Ear muffs will reduce the overall background noise by differing amounts depending on whether the noise is medium, low or high frequency.

Sizing of the 3M PELTOR Optime Noise Cancelling Ear Defenders

The Ear Muffs are available in one size that should suit most users.
