3M E-A-R Classic Soft earplugs are made of a patented, thermal-reactive foam used by the NASA space program. The material feels smoother than ordinary foam, and starts out firm to allow for easy insertion. Then, the plugs warm with the body temperature. They actually soften and shape to the ear canal. This “custom,” low pressure seal helps provide an excellent NRR of 31 dB. Better yet, the plugs get even softer and more comfortable with extended wear. Not Just A New Plug, A Whole New Foam. E-A-R® Classic Soft earplugs will change the way people feel about foam earplugs because they feel entirely different. Made of a patented new foam, these plugs have a smaller cell structure and feel smoother “to the touch” than other foam. But thats just the beginning, the foam plugs actually react to the wearers body temperature. Thermal-Reactive: Soft Gets Even Softer. The new plugs start out firm enough to make roll-down and insertion easy. As the foam warms to the body temperature, it becomes even softer and shapes to the individuals ear canal. This shaping allows the plugs to form an excellent seal against noise (NRR 31 dB) and, as time goes on, the foam continues to soften for added comfort.
Most popular earplug in the world. Laboratory tested NRR 31dB. The E-A-R yellow color is your assurance of proven protection. Thermal Reative Foam gets softer with wear.
