SMITHFIELD, RHODE ISLAND, USA (March 26, 2012) — Howard Leight®/Honeywell Safety Products is offering free trial samples of its flagship MAX® and MAX® Small single-use earplugs to qualified Hearing Conservation program managers and other occupational safety professionals in the US and Canada.

“Workers who need to block out loud noise deserve the best protection and comfort available in an earplug. MAX — and our new MAX Small — earplugs offer maximum protection with minimum exposure,” said Renee S. Bessette, COHC, Global Brand Manager, Howard Leight/Honeywell Safety Products.

MAX is the world’s most popular polyurethane foam earplug — offering superior attenuation in a single-use earplug and delivering superior long-wearing comfort and solid performance that workers can depend on,” Bessette said.

MAX earplug features include:

  • Bellshape delivers maximum in-ear comfort
  • Contoured design easier to insert, resists tendency to back-out of ear canal
  • Polyurethane foam enhances comfort, especially for long-term wear
  • Smooth, soil-resistant closed cell-foam skin prevents dirt build-up
  • Highest published attenuation with a Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) 33

“Since its launch last fall, MAX Small has caught the ‘ear’ of safety professionals and workers who seek a smaller-sized foam earplug,” Bessette said.

In addition to all of the features of MAX earplugs, MAX Small’s reduced size offers workers with smaller ear canals best-in-class fit, protection (NRR 33), and in-ear comfort. MAX Small has the same bell shape and patented varied-cell polyurethane foam as the standard MAX earplug, though is 20% smaller in geometry.
