Stay Protected, Connected And Aware

Aware Technology™ protects you from dangerous noises while allowing you to communicate with others and hear the world around you.

Ethan The Engineer Explains Aware Technology

Aware Technology™ improves your situational awareness by:

1. Amplifying the safe sounds around you that you want to hear

2. Blocking the damaging noises around you that you don’t want to hear.

Aware Technology™ is perfect for the person who needs to hear the world around them, but still needs protection from loud impulse noises (like nail guns, hammers, and more).

Aware Technology™ uses microphones to pick up outside sounds and amplifies them through your hearing protector, similar to a hearing aid or enhancer. Aware volume buttons allow you to choose your preferred amplification level. This means you can wear hearing protection and still hear the world and those around you at a comfortable listening level.

When outside noise breaches a safe listening level of 85 dB (or 79 dB for EN 352 products) Aware Technology™ purposefully shuts off to block this noise passively, similar to a standard hearing protector. When your environmental noise returns to a safe listening level, Aware Technology™ will turn back on to continue amplifying the sounds around you.

This makes Aware Technology™ great for those who work in sporadically loud environments. Noises like nail guns and hammers will be blocked by Aware Technology™, while safe environmental sounds will be amplified. In consistently loud environments, like when working with lawn mowers or sanders, Aware Technology™ will block all sound until the outside noise falls to a safe level.

how does it work?

Omni-directional microphones amplify the sounds around you through your hearing protector. When these microphones sense a loud noise, like a nail gun or hammer, they quickly lower the volume to protect your ears.

The graphic below displays how Aware Technology™lowers the volume quickly, holds the lower volume for the designated period, then transitions back to normal listening.
