Discomfort and over attenuation (damping) are two of the main factors that result in incorrect fitting and use of hearing protection, especially when using disposable foam ear plugs or earmuffs. ACS Pro filters provide a large open air passage into the ear so minimising occlusion (blocked up sensation) and keeping the ear ventilated for the ultimate in user comfort.
Measurements taken by the Occupational Health and Safety Authorities show that at a speed of only 80 km/h the sound level under the helmet is over 90 decibels. Safe levels are 85 decibels and under.

Dangers of Wind Noise – Drive Safe Now so you can still Hear Tomorrow!
At Pacific Ears, ACS Australia and New Zealand, we’ve heard too many times when speaking to drivers and riders, ‘It’s ok, my car isn’t that loud!’ or “My crash helmet has built in padding for hearing protection”.
If you believe that alone is enough to protect your hearing, think again.
This is part 3 of a series on how to choose the right hearing protection as part of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and what things to consider. In this series we will help you to make informed choices and save money while putting safety of hearing at the forefront.
In this part we will briefly touch on specific attenuation, Compliance and Ability to Communicate.
A guide for any Industry. How to Choose The Right Hearing Protection – (part 2)
Are you paying too much?
This is part 2 of a series on how to choose the right hearing protection as part of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and what things to consider. Over the next few weeks we will go into several different aspects to consider, such as noise levels, cost effectiveness, certification AS/NZS1270, comfort, attenuation, durability, type of noise (frequencies), and more. In part 1 we discussed noise levels. We will now go into cost effectiveness.
