Lightweight and portable, banded plugs are well suited to intermittent-noise environments. Soft pods rest partially in the ear canal, providing supra-aural protection and enhanced wearing comfort. Patented band design keeps pods elevated when set down, protecting them from dirty, contaminated surfaces. Bright orange coloring ensures at-a-glance visibility. Sealable carry bag protects set when not in use. Each unit includes one set of replacement pods.
