Custom Passive Hearing Protection for Teachers
SOWEI Unlimited is Audiovox’s custom passive hearing protection for teachers who are exposed to noise and are at risk of developing tinnitus or hearing damage. SOWEI Unlimited is individually fitted to each educator’s ear canals, ensuring a high level of comfort throughout the workday. They are compact and can be ordered with handles and a cord for easy removal and minimize the risk of dropping it. The hearing protection is made from a soft medical silicone. The filters in the hearing protection allow your ears to equalize pressure, meaning the user can wear them all day without discomfort.
SOWEI Unlimited is available with 5 different noise filters with 10 dB, 15 dB, 20 dB, 25 dB and 30 dB noise reduction respectively. The noise filters attenuate noise equally across all frequencies, making them suitable for users with high speech and communication needs.
How sound is perceived is individual from person to person and the same goes for any sound attenuation. That’s why it can be difficult to explain what it sounds like when you use hearing protection.
At Audiovox, we know that it’s important for you as a customer to understand the impact of a product before you buy it. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to listen to audio demos so you can get an idea of how it sounds when loud sounds are reduced.
However, it’s important to emphasize that the audio demos are for guidance only and do not demonstrate exactly how you will experience sound attenuation when using molded hearing protection.
Teacher hearing protection
In a nursery or institution with many children, the noise level can quickly become harmful and this can affect hearing. Especially impulse noise from children’s screams and the like can be harmful and can cause tinnitus or hearing damage. With a pair of practical teacher hearing protection, you can protect your hearing so you don’t risk hearing damage as a result of your work.
When working in noise, both the sound level and the time you spend in the noise affect how much your hearing is affected. The longer the time or louder the noise, the greater the strain. In workplaces, employers must provide hearing protection if the noise is above 80 dB. This also applies to noise below 80 dB if it is highly annoying. For noise above 85 dB, the employee is required to wear hearing protection. It is important to wear hearing protection at all times if the noise is above 85 dB, as the user has a high risk of hearing damage even if the limit is only exceeded for a short time. At 88 dB, the user is at risk of hearing damage after 4 hours, at 94 dB after 1 hour and at 120 dB after just 15 seconds.
