DIYplugz earplugs are designed to reduce high noise levels when doing home maintenance, gardening and vehicle repairs – jobs where noise exposure can be a hearing hazard. A safe noise level is around 85dB (about as loud as someone shouting). If this level is exceeded, you may experience a ringing in your ears for a few hours, or even a permanent hearing damage.
How loud are my tools?
Electric hammer drill 104dB
Circular saw 105dB
Petrol lawn mower 95dB
Jet washer 100dB
DIYplugz will reduce sound by 24dB, bringing the noise down to safe levels. The DIY filters provide an open air passage to the ear, minimising the occlusion* effect, while keeping the ear ventilated for optimum comfort and reducing irritation. You’ll still hear sounds around you, just at a safer volume level.
*Occlusion is caused by sound carried to your ears through bone or cartilage conduction. Normally this is unheard and escapes through the open ear but if your ear is blocked by an earplug the sound becomes trapped and a booming low frequency effect will occur causing an uncomfortable sensation.
DIYplugz are reusable and come with two sizes of eartip (small and regular). They’re easy to put in, and the lug makes them easy to take out. They should be washed with warm, soapy water to keep them free of dirt and debris which may affect their general performance. The small metal keyring container offers a secure storage place for your earplugs.
