AbstractThe use of passive hearing protection that protects against transient impact noise and at the same time allows ambient sound will enable Marines to continue to hear and respond in combat, thereby enhancing situational awareness, while blocking and/or reflecting harmful blast shock waves in the ear canal. Current ear plugs and over-the-ear muffs block both loud sounds and the sound of normal speech. As a result, they are not worn when needed, or are worn in a manner that permits normal verbal communication but that makes the devices ineffective for hearing protection. An inexpensive earplug design is proposed that will provide protection from high noise levels without impeding auditory awareness.
