A revolution in custom hearing protection

The PRO20 filter provides attenuation specifically designed for high noise situations where there is an emphasis on higher pitch frequencies. For motor sport the PRO20 provides protection against wind, road and engine noise whilst allowing the wearer to maintain situation awareness, hear the note of the engine and communicate clearly when stationary. Designed from the ground up for motorsport and industry, the PRO20 is the ideal filter for demanding environments. The PRO filter also provides water resistance so it will carry on performing in the hot or humid conditions of a crash helmet or demanding industrial environments with no detriment to the attenuation.

The edge you want with the protection you need

The PRO20 offers protection that’s been specifically designed for those exposed to dangerous high frequency noise. Its dB reduction increases gently up to the high frequencies so you can hear everything you need to. Keeping the attenuation less aggressive in the lower frequencies gives you greater situation awareness. This allows you to communicate comfortably without the need to keep removing and replacing your plugs so you can put your hearing protection in and leave it there all day if necessary. With an average attenuation of 20dB the PRO20 can increase your safe exposure times by up to 6.5 times so you can enjoy your hobby or occupation with confidence and, with its slimmer and more discreet profile, in complete comfort.

The next generation of filter design

The PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. For starters, it’s smaller than many competing filters, which means it can fit into smaller ears without any protrusion – which is great for both comfort and aesthetics as it will always fit snugly underneath a helmet. The filters are also user-swappable so you can chop and change as your environment demands to any other filter in the PRO range, giving you complete control over your protection with just a single set of earmoulds. In addition, the PRO series are water resistant so they can be used outside or in high moisture environments and can withstand perspiration without it damaging the filter membrane.

The curse of the occlusion effect

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you may have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head (this is what we call occlusion). This is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head which usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage. This ensures that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all. The PRO filters go one step further by being vented to allow sound to pass both ways, meaning that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.

Tailor made for you

The PRO20 ear plug is custom-made using soft medical-grade silicone so you get the very best in isolation and fit, allowing you to wear them for hours at a time without fatigue or discomfort. Each earpiece is manufactured to the highest standards ensuring you get a comfortable, discreet and effective hearing protector that can be fitted quickly, easily and securely every time.

PRO20 ear plugs and filters have been tested and certified to EN352-2: The European Standard for ear plug hearing protectors, which is almost identical to the AS/NZS1270 standards.

For some people, loud noises have a big impact on their ability to think straight and focus on their given tasks. Excessive and prolonged loud noise increases psychological stress and can cause a person to become irritable and withdrawn. Loud environments can have devastating effects if one is not properly protected. Damage can be caused to your hearing when exposed to loud noises, which will lead to permanent hearing loss. If you work in an environment that is naturally loud such as a construction site, you will need a good quality product. Choosing the correct hearing protection is very important, it can soon become very overwhelming.

DriverCom

Designed for Motorsport

Drivercom is designed from the ground up with the performance (racing) environment in mind. Improved and refined over several years, our Drivercom earpieces offer a superbly clear and comfortable communication experience that’s second to none.

Using the softest silicone we can the Drivercom is crafted to sit as flush in the ear as possible, this reduces the possibility of pressure being applied when wearing a crash helmet and ensures the earpiece is able to flex to accommodate changes in the ear shape that occur when a helmet is worn. In addition, using a softer silicone ensures that isolation is maintained at all times when in use so you always get clear communication that’s not clouded with outside noise.

Crystal clear communication

The Drivercom uses a single lightweight speaker that’s been selected to deliver crystal clear communications and work perfectly with the majority of radio systems. Using balanced armature technology, the Drivercom speaker is compact enough to fit discreetly in the ear allowing us to keep the size and weight of your earpieces to a minimum whilst being powerful enough to ensure that you get a clear vocal signal.

Core strengths

Making sure that we use the right cable to deliver your sound is as important as every other aspect in the design of our earpieces so we make sure they are just as well thought out. Starting with the best conductive core we then add Kevlar threads for strength and flexibility so that we can be sure you’ll get the performance you demand. Each cable is sheathed with a special finish that reduces the transmission of friction noise to the earpieces so there’s as little interference as possible. The cable is then clamped at the Y divide with a custom pressed lengthened binder to give it extra strength where you need it most. The Drivercom can be made with a standard length(30cm) or a specified length up to 1.4 meter cable depending on which is most suitable for your application.

Pro DriverCom 

Designed for Motorsport

The ACS ProDrivercom takes all the great features of the original Drivercom and adds to it. We discovered a need for a product which would give the user some ambient hearing allowing for more situational awareness to hear engine and exhaust notes and also for hearing safety cues such as warning alarms and sirens while still protecting the hearing of the user.

So we combined our tried and tested PRO hearing protection filter and the ACS Drivercom to create the perfect motorsport communication and hearing protection product.

The ProDrivercom can be fitted with either a Pro26 or Pro27 filter to suit your attenuation (sound reduction) needs and the type and level of sound in your environment.

Using the softest silicone possible the ProDrivercom is crafted to sit as flush in the ear as possible, this reduces the possibility of pressure being applied when wearing a crash helmet and ensures the earpiece is able to flex to accommodate changes in the ear shape that occur when a helmet is worn. In addition, using a softer silicone ensures that isolation is maintained at all times when in use so you always get clear communication that’s not clouded with outside noise.

Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion.


Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect. A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all but the Pacato filters go one step further. The Pacato is vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.


The Pacato also offers resilience to moisture and wax build up. Being shielded from external moisture with the hard outer shell means that the fabric filter membrane is protected from the elements so your earplug will keep on performing in adverse conditions but, in addition, the filters and plugs can be cleaned to keep them performing for years to come.
