What Are the Safety Specifications of the 3M Peltor X5P3E Hard Hat Ear Defenders?

The 3M Peltor X5P3E Hard Hat Ear Defenders offer protection against extremely high levels of background noise, with an SNR of 36dB.

EN 352 - 1

The 3M Ear Muffs meet EN 352 - 2 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 36dB.

  • High Frequency Noises: 36
  • Medium Frequency Noises: 34
  • Low Frequency Noises: 26

What Are the Uses of the 3M Peltor X5P3E Hard Hat Ear Defenders?

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

  • Agricultural
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Utilities
  • Metal processing
  • Automotive
  • Manufacturing
  • Printing
  • Foundry
  • Heavy engineering
  • Mining
  • Engine rooms
  • Textile manufacturing

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 earplugs with an SNR of 32 will reduce the background noise to 68dB, protecting your ears. Some ear defenders will reduce the overall background noise by differing amounts depending on whether the noise is medium, low or high frequency.

How Comfortable Are the 3M Peltor X5P3E Hard Hat Ear Defenders?

Carefully moulded sliders ensure the earmuffs are easy to adjust when on the head. Wide, soft foam ear cushions help workers stay comfortable, while the slim cups offer improved compatibility with other safety equipment. 


The 3M Peltor X5P3E Hard Hat Ear Defenders are available in one size that should suit most users.
