The Chameleon Ear Modular Design hearing protector can be worn three ways. As a filtered earplug, the removable lanyard head is placed in the bottom port while the top port remains open, providing situational awareness. For a solid ear protector with maximum attenuation, you simply place the end of the lanyard head into the top port, disengaging the acoustic filter. To use it as a connection for radio communications, place a specific MD radio coupler in the top port and attach the available radio harness. This choice offers improved listening conditions for employees who wear communication systems such as shoulder mics, and will limit noise levels to 80-85 dB.
