The PRO 26 is one of the strongest level-attenuating earplugs available, offering protection from the most challenging sound environments whilst ensuring that you can hear clearly and perform at your best at all times. The PRO 26 offers the same incredibly natural sound as the rest of the PRO range while also offering a high-frequency peak which ensures that your hearing is protected from the most dangerous and intense sounds. Ideal for those working in the loudest of environments, the PRO 26 offers clear communication, unparalleled comfort and tailor-made attenuation to ensure that you can stay in touch and in tune with your environment.
The PRO 26 filter offers some of the strongest attenuation in the PRO range but still keeps all of the frequencies in balance. This allows you to stay protected but perfectly in touch with your environment. Offering levelled response up to 4kHz, the PRO 26 is perfect for musicians working in the loudest environments, allowing complete clarity in extreme noise. In addition, the PRO 26 offers extra protection at the highest frequencies so you stay safe from the most intense sounds and can tackle your work with confidence.
The PRO filter series has been designed anew with the wearer in mind. For starters, it’s smaller than many competing filters so that 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-interchangeable so you can alternate 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 ear moulds. 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.
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) 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 reduced rather than entering the canal at all. Tthe PRO filters go one step further by being vented to allow sound to pass both ways so that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.
