Etymotic EB15•LE BlastPLG® Electronic Earplugs

EB15•LE electronic earplugs are designed for those who want to maintain natural hearing while protecting their ears from impulse and continuous loud noises like gunfire, explosions, vehicles, and machinery.

Etymotic Research brings its state of the art electronic hearing protection device, the EB15•LE BlastPLG® electronic earplugs, to the 29th Police Security Expo at the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, NJ on June 23 & 24, 2015. The event is owned and hosted by the NJ State Association of Chiefs of Police.

Etymotic EB15•LE electronic earplugs allow normal sounds to pass through normally, but can sense blasts or continuous noise and automatically reduce sound to safe levels. In the second of two modes, these battery-powered earplugs amplify soft sounds up to 5X. Given that perpetrators sometimes use sound as a weapon, and that hearing the quietest sounds can sometimes give directional guidance, the EB15•LE gives officers a decided advantage in the field.

The Police Security Expo is the industry’s longest running and best-known product based showcase for officers and their departments. Products on display range from the common flashlight to items such as uniforms, transport vehicles, forcible entry tools, weapons, crime scene investigation aids, wireless services, digital cameras, warning lights, surveillance products, bullet proof vests, computers and more. In addition to exhibits, the expo offers seminar programs and product demonstrations. Over 7,000 industry professionals are expected to attend.

EB15•LE electronic earplugs are designed for those who want to maintain natural hearing while protecting their ears from impulse and continuous loud noises like gunfire, explosions, vehicles, and machinery. They feature an in-ear design, proven 360° situational awareness (horizontal plane), uncompromised sound detection and localization, and unrivaled speech intelligibility in loud noise.

In EB15•LE’s “Mode 1” users maintain natural hearing and experience 15 dB of adaptive attenuation for sounds between 90-120 SPL, with increased attenuation of up to 35-40 dB due to eartip seal. “Mode 2” offers up to 5X amplification. Blast protection is active on both settings.

Etymotic’s EB15•LE provides signal processing with wide-dynamic-range compression, plus variable recovery time with instant recovery from blasts and slower recovery of normal sounds for better speech intelligibility. They have the highest bandwidth and the highest undistorted input capability of any active hearing protectors, hearing aids or personal sound amplifying devices at any price in any industry.
