The Custom Molded Earpieces (CME) are custom fit from ear impressions provided by customer and provide even greater ear protection for flying than CEP, along with comfort during long duration of usage. Hearing loss caused by exposure to recreational and occupational noise is virtually 100 percent preventable by avoiding excessive noise and using hearing protection. Noise-induced hearing loss is the second most common form of sensorineural hearing deficit, after age-related hearing loss. Prolonged exposure to noise over 90 decibels (dB) can result in permanent, irreparable hearing loss. A one-time exposure - no matter how brief - to 120 dB or more can do the same. Just once, and your hearing could be seriously damaged, so helmet ear protection is a must. Custom molded hearing protection ear tips are molded from an impression taken directly from your ear. Because your ears are unique, only custom-made hearing protection, like custom ear tips, can provide repeated perfect fit and effectiveness. The integration of electronics into custom-molded earpieces allows users to experience clear audio communications while protecting their ears from damaging noise common in aviation and marine environments. CME hearing protection ear tips are made of high strength silicon.
NOTE: Finding the right helmet ear protection requires the customer to provide a set of ear impressions made by a local hearing aid provider.
NOTE: The new Tiger performance rugged helmet mounted jack and housing enable easy reliable plug in. No more loose contacts and intermittent hearing. This new approach to earpiece cable plug in eliminates loss of hearing protection during critical operations.
