Description

Volume Limiting Products

Listening to music in headphones at too loud of a volume for too long exposes you to the risk of noise-induced hearing loss. Our volume limiting headphones prevent workers from listening to audio at unsafe levels by keeping the speaker volume below 82 dB.

All of our volume limiting headphones are clearly marked with a red body color, which you can see between the tip and the cord. The highly-visible red color allows you to easily look for compliance standards quickly. Volume limiting is not available on all Plugfones models. It can however be found on certain FreeReign, Protector Plus, and Protector models.

Volume Limited (VL) products meet OSHA standards for safe workplace all day listening and safety.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good bass and volume

Everything great except the size of the ear plug going in. Great bass and sound for sure. Once it’s in it’s in, but my job calls for tons of over the head movement so it loosens the seal that gives you the best noise cancellation. Needs to be a bit deeper in my opinion. If you’re a normal sized person then it should work perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for loud rides

Love the product. On my second pair (dog chewed the first ones). Using them all the time when riding my dirt bike on a corse perfect for canceling the bike noise. Stay snug in my ears all day, and feel comfortable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good noise cancellation, not very loud

Pretty good pair of earbuds especially if you want to keep your hearing. Only thing that I would really nitpick is the fact that the sound itself isnt all that loud and you really have to turn the sound up so you can hear what you are playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good and bad

I was looking for a replacement brand of earbuds that are a little less expensive than my current brand. Quality of sound is definitely not there. Sounds like you are listening through tin cans. HOWEVER, the foam tips on these earplugs are by far the most comfortable I have ever tried, especially if you have small ear canals. I bought a bunch and traded out the current foam tips on the old earbuds for these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best choice for headphones while working outside.

I use these doing just about everything outside. I used to use earplugs and I can finally use my phone and listen to music while I mow my lawn.

When used as directed, our products are certified for Noise Reduction Ratings (NRR) of 29 or 27 dB, depending on the plugs used. For environments with high levels of noise, it may be necessary to use over ear protection such as earmuffs in conjunction with Plugfones products.

Plugfones have been independently tested to meet U.S., E.U., and Australian standards. For more information, visit our Safety page.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the best but still great at work.

The battery life is good and the cable is long enough to put under the safety helmet. Performance may be differ from which khind of music you listen. For me I love rock and this thing did a pretty amazing job. Only downside is when not listening to music you mught hear some outside noise than normal safety earplug.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite headphones

I've used these headphones for over 5 years now. I work in a factory and they help save my hearing. I wear them at work, at home (mowing the lawn or using machinery), even on hikes. I use them every day for hours. The battery is great. The sound is great. I mostly listen to books, but sometimes music. I can wear them and have a conversation with people without issues. They come with 2 tip options. I use the silicone ones and I never have any problems with ear aches or headaches. I wear them for 5-8 hours a day, at least 5 days a week. I used to leave them in my car to charge and so I wouldn't forget them, but the heat and cold caused the wire to come apart by the earpiece after like a year. These are so worth the money. I love that they have a cord connecting them so I can take them out of my ear whenever I need to and not have to worry about losing one. Excellent customer service too. Fantastic product.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are great. Easy to sleep in and I can listen to music to go to sleep.

These are the best ear phones and also pretty great as ear plugs. Many earbuds don't stay in my ears and they're hard and uncomfortable. These are the only ones that really work for me. I can sleep in them too. It's important to clean them with alcohol after using.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOOKS LIKE HEARING PROTECTION

If i could give this product 6 stars I would. The volume can go so high it HURTS, far louder than any of my other earbuds. They do work as normal ear plugs without music playing. But, MOST IMPORTANTLY, the buttons and battery are far enough down the wire i can easily hide them in my T-shirt! My supervisor can suck a ****!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well

These are great at work and no one knew I was using them. One downfall was I can't get orange replacement foam pieces except through the company. I did so but the mail person delivered them at the wrong address somi never received them. I'd rather go through amazon as I know they will get it to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Raceciever

Ear buds that are actually ear plugs to block outside noise.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST BUY !!

I’m not sure if I am just to hard on these but the sound on the one side is like a whisper. Plugs are hard to keep in. I just ordered the plugfone that is one step better. Hopefully they will last longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sooooooooo nice!

I use these as ear plugs for noise reduction and as ear buds. They seal out a lot of noise as well as push the music/voice directly into my hear. Since I suffer hearing loss from years of industrial noise these make it possible to use my SENA Bluetooth headset to communicate with my girlfriend when we ride. BTW, i wear a half-helmet and I purchased an extra pair to have on hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cool!

I work in a warehouse where headphones aren’t allowed but I need music to get me through an entire shift. So I searched for some earphones that looked like the ear plugs at work “which I thought I’d have no luck with” but I found these and read a good amount of reviews and decided to try them out for myself. I was skeptical about the sound quality but they sound very good quality to me. It comes with a case that includes different size heads which I love! As well as a comfort neck support that can come off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall GREAT headphones for work

They get loud. If you insert them correctly, they get really loud. Good battery life per charge, good noise cancellation( they're OSHA certified), good range, good bass, good durability, actually has a good microphone too. I used these for years at my last job without anyone noticing. Don't put these in a washing machine, I've had mixed outcomes. Sometimes they still work, sometimes they don't. As long as you're not using these to swim with, I think you'll be okay.
