September 3, 2013 – Honeywell says its new Howard Leight FirmFit classic-style foam earplugs were engineered to enhance the wearing experience for individuals who prefer a firmer fit so as to feel the earplugs in their ears, and who are accustomed to the familiar barrel-shaped earplug. “The bottom line is this: the more comfortable the earplug, the longer workers will wear it. That’s more protection for employees, and greater compliance for safety managers,” said Rachel Newport, senior product marketing manager, Honeywell Safety Products. Available in corded and uncorded versions, the earplugs boast 30 NRR dB, and promise to be easy to roll down and insert, with plenty of time to adjust for a proper fit. You are encouraged to request a complimentary Ear-To-Ear Challenge kit (which contains a week’s worth [5 pairs] of FirmFit earplugs) and wear them for a week in place of their current foam earplugs and share their experience online.
