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.
Hearing protection is important when working around loud noises, but it can sometimes reduce awareness of what’s going on around you.
With ISOtunes Aware, not only do I get my hearing protection, but also complete awareness of my surroundings. Now I'm able to have conversations with those I’m working with.

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.
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.
