3M Peltor X-Series Over-the-Head Earmuffs, NRR 24 dB, One Size Fits Most, Black/Yellow X2A (Pack of 1)
- Over-the-head hearing protection with Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24 dB for moderately high noise exposures
- Twin headband design helps reduce heat buildup with good fit and balance
- Wire headband offers comfortable pressure during prolonged usage
- Earcups tilt to ensure a customized fit and comfort for individual users
- Electrically insulated (dielectric) wire headband helps reduce exposure to electrical hazards
The X-Series earmuffs are 3M's latest advancement in hearing conservation. New technologies in comfort, design and protection all come together in this groundbreaking earmuff line. The X2A is a lightweight, lower-profile earmuff designed for protection against low-to-moderate level industrial noise and other loud sounds. It features an electrically insulated wire headband, often referred to as "dielectric". The X-series (over-the-head) headband version is electrically insulated - sometimes referred to as "dielectric". The metal components of the headband have been covered by non-conductive material for use in a low voltage electrical hazard (less than 440 V ac). As there are no applicable standards for testing ear muffs against electrical insulating properties, the product has been evaluated at an external laboratory against a modified test method based on EN397:1995. During assessment, the leakage current did not exceed 1.2mA when the external surface of the product made contact with an electrical source. The NRR may overestimate the hearing protection provided during typical use. Hearing protection solutions made innovatively easy. The 3M Peltor X series earmuffs are ideal for protection against noise arising from a wide range of applications in the workplace and leisure activity. Examples of typical applications include: metal processing, automotive, airports, construction, textile manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical, manufacturing, cement manufacturing, printing, woodworking, heavy engineering, foundry, steelworks, mining and quarrying. Headband and headband cover/sleeve: stainless steel wire, TPE, polyester, polypropylene, acetal. Hard hat attachment arm: stainless steel wire, acetal, polyamide. Earcups: ABS/TPU. Earcup inserts: PU foam. Earcup cushions and cushion covers: PU foam and PVC. Black/yellow color. Dielectric. Hearing protection style: over the head. Noise reduction rating: 24 decibel. Product type: earmuffs. Size: one size fits most.
From the Manufacturer
3M™ Peltor™ X-Series Over-The-Head Earmuffs X2 help protect hearing in moderately high noise exposure environments with a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) of 24 dB. When correctly selected and worn, these lightweight hearing protection products help reduce exposure to hazardous levels of noise and loud sounds.
High level hearing protection without sacrificing comfort
Specifically designed to enhanced worker comfort, these earmuffs combine a lightweight design with soft contact points and adjustability. The twin headband design helps reduce heat buildup while offering a good fit and balance to make the headband more comfortable. The wire headband provides just enough pressure to ensure a secure fit, but never too much so as to become uncomfortably tight. Individual wearers can customize the fit of these hearing protectors with the adjustable earcups that tilt. Soft and wide cushions on help the earmuffs seal comfortably around the ears, a feature that potentially can increase hearing protection compliance by workers in environments where hearing protection may be required. Easy-to-replace cushions and inserts help prolong the life of the earmuffs and keep them clean.
Versatile hearing protection for many work environments
Suggested applications and worksites for these earmuffs include metal processing, automotive, airports, construction, textile manufacturing, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, cement manufacturing, printing, woodworking, heavy engineering, foundry, steelworks, mining, and quarrying.
X-Series Over-the-Head Earmuffs feature electrically insulated (dielectric) wire headbands. The metal components of the headbands have been covered by a non-conductive material for use in a low voltage electrical hazard (less than 440 V ac). The product has been evaluated at an external laboratory against a modified test method based on EN397:1995. During assessment, the leakage current did not exceed 1.2mA when the external surface of the product made contact with an electrical source. The user must determine the overall suitability of the product for the intended application taking into account any hazards other than noise for which the product is tested.
Importance of hearing protection
Exposure to loud noises can adversely affect the ability to hear over time. Wearing proper hearing protection devices can help in reducing the harmful effects of noise. Sounds levels are expressed in decibels, often abbreviated as dB. Higher decibel numbers indicate louder sounds. Typical decibel levels associated with common sounds include: outdoors with no people or traffic 20 dB, normal conversation 60 dB, power lawn mower 90 dB, chain saw 110 dB, and 12-gauge shotgun 165 dB. The hearing protector NRR can be used to evaluate different hearing protection options. However, the actual level of protection varies depending on fit, wearing time and other factors.
