  'The world's finest ear defender against noise at work and recreation'

Having worked on oil drilling rigs for close to 30 years, after the first seriously noisy ten of which, my company supplied all of its staff with Emtec's NoiseBreakers. The difference was immediate and undeniable. It may sound fanciful but I honestly think they not only saved our hearing but also gradually improved morale. Highly recommended!

C.J. Barrie,

Alstom has been using Emtec for years and are impressed with the service provided. The quality of the product and the benefits offered by using them i.e: comfort over prolonged periods of use, the ability to still communicate combined with the cost-effectiveness of the product makes it the best option in hearing protection.

We originally decided to bring in moulded ear defenders as a cost saving initiative in the brewery. After having demonstrated the saving over disposable alternatives and receiving positive feedback from our operators, we decided to roll this out site-wide.

The earplugs are a joy to wear, I even take them home for doing DIY around the house!

This hearing protection is comfortable and can be worn all day enabling clear communication between the crew whilst drilling in a noisy environment. We have used Emtec Laboratories for the past 10 years due to their consistent and reliable service.

Emtec Laboratories have been our provider of choice for personal issue ear defenders for many years. The past 4 years have seen the Force increase significantly their use of the NoiseBreaker product for a number of departments, including Fleet, Printing, Firearms, Dog Handlers, Roads Policing Motorcyclists, Air Surveillance, Territorial Support Teams and the Animal Welfare Officers.

Feedback from Officers is that the product is very comfortable and easy to use, without causing communication problems and it is often used in conjunction with external ear defenders. They are of excellent quality, without need for replacement for 5 years and good value for money. In the case of lost or mislaid defenders, a simple email ensures replacement without fuss. I have always found the customer service of the Emtec staff exemplary and delivery is always consistent.

At WMS Firearms Training, protecting our hearing is vital and the ability to do this while still able to hear instructions, warnings and conversation is very beneficial. We started using Emtec moulded ear plugs in 2001 and I have used them with great success ever since.

They are very cost-effective, do what they say on the box and remain comfortable all day. In the summer months, when electronic ear muffs become hot and uncomfortable Emtec plugs are a pleasure to wear.

When we are shooting shotguns and moderated rifles they are perfect. In common with all in-the-ear type plugs, when we use un-moderated rifles or rifles with muzzle brakes we use electronic muffs on top of the Emtecs as the bones around the ear are sensitive to sound in excess of 140 decibels.

The plugs are the perfect backup solution in this circumstance and help provide total protection. I also use them when mowing the lawn, strimming and in general high noise situations. As I suffer from a little tinnitus, it is vital I protect my hearing at all times. We recommend Emtec to all shooting sports participants, hearing is priceless, so protect yours.
