Utility supplies: Honeywell’s new Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs feature a softer, more comfortable fit and better noise protection than most leading classic-style foam earplugs.

A welcome advance in classic-style foam earplugs, Howard Leight FirmFit was engineered to enhance the wearing experience for individuals who prefer a firmer fit in order to “feel” their earplugs in their ears, and who are accustomed to the familiar cylindrical or barrel-shaped earplug.

“The new Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs are significantly more comfortable, provide more effective hearing protection, and exert less pressure in your ear canal than most older foam models that workers have used for years,” said Rachel Newport, senior product marketing manager, Honeywell Safety Products. “The bottom line is this: The more comfortable the earplug, the longer workers will wear it. That¹s more protection for employees ‹ and greater compliance for safety managers -- a win-win for everyone.”

Independent lab tests revealed the new Howard Leight FirmFit earplugs are 40% softer with 29% lower expansion pressure than most leading classic-style earplugs.

FirmFit earplugs provide effective 30 NRR dB hearing protection and are easy to roll down and insert, with plenty of time to adjust for a proper fit; bright orange in color for high-visibility identification; and available in corded and uncorded versions.

Workers are urged to try, compare and feel the difference of FirmFit earplugs for themselves by requesting a complimentary “Ear-To-Ear Challenge” kit. Each kit contains a week’s worth, or five pair, of FirmFit earplugs. Workers are encouraged to wear FirmFit for a week in place of their current foam earplugs and share their experience online.
