EVERYONE'S hearing is individual and, recognising this, Sonomax Australia has created a far more sophisticated approach than the conventional 'one size fits all' solution.
Sonomax will present its custom-fitted and computer-measured ear pieces at stand A20 during the Queensland Safety Show from June 21 - 23, 2006.
The Sonomax Solution features an earplug that is moulded to fit the ear of the wearer.
The devices can be fitted in less than 30 minutes, on-site, anywhere in Australia, and last for three years.
Custom fitting not only eliminates noise leakage, it makes the earpieces more comfortable, encouraging people to wear them.
The ear pieces are specially designed so that in most cases the user can hear ordinary communication while being protected from unsafe levels of noise. They can even integrate radio communication capability if required.
But the ear piece itself is only part of the process. Sonomax then employs a computer program to measure the performance of the device. It is an objective test, measuring the sound from the wearer's side of the device, which ensures the perfect balance between protection and the ability to hear.
There will be demonstrations of the process at the A40 Sonomax stand at the Queensland Safety Show, Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
