New Electronic Earplugs Protect Ears and Boost Hearing

Developed for the military, Etymotic’s EB15•LE earplugs guard against blasts, and give police and fire personnel the edge of superior hearing…all at the same time

Police departments across the country are getting their first looks at, and listens to, one of the greatest tactical breakthroughs since Kevlar: Etymotic Research EB15•LE electronic earplugs. Originally developed to protect soldiers from deafening blasts and noise in the field - while also providing the advantage of amplified hearing in quiet situations - EB15•LE electronic earplugs from Etymotic Research are now available for police and fire departments.

The major breakthrough is that EB15•LE electronic earplugs allow users to maintain natural hearing while protecting their ears from impulse and continuous loud noises like gunfire, explosions, vehicles, and machinery. The earplugs fit in the ear canals and are proven to provide 360° situational awareness on a horizontal plane. The EB15•LE delivers uncompromised sound detection and localization, along with unrivaled speech intelligibility in loud noise environments.

EB15•LE electronic earplugs give fire and police personnel blast protection when they need it with a device that also amplifies soft sounds up to 5X: Protection one moment and superior hearing the next. 

"I wore them 10 hours straight on a bomb squad training exercise. I couldn't be happier! They provided amazing comfort for the length of time worn," said Randall Curtis, detective in the bomb squad of the Seattle Police Department. “I was so pleased when our entire bomb squad was issued EB•15 electronic hearing protection after I introduced it to our group.”
