FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

General

What are Pluggerz?

Pluggerz are earplugs that protect your hearing.

How long can you be exposed to loud noise?

An increase of 3 dB doubles the noise load and therefore halves the maximum exposure time! The graph below provides you with an indication of the maximum duration of exposure.

Do Pluggerz All-Fit Sleep contain filters?

Yes they do. Because of the soft grip we have developed a flexible filter. A hard filter would not hold or brake. Pluggerz All-Fit Sleep, like all other Pluggerz products, are CE certified and tested according to EN 352-2.

What are the differences between the Pluggerz Custom-Made Music, Custom-Made Music ER and the Custom-Made Music 2-in-1?

The Custom-Made Music has no flat attenuation for use in clubs or during concerts (standard attenuation C01 up to and including C07). It provides different attenuation for different frequencies, which results in a less natural rendering of the music.
The Custom-Made 2-in-1 provides flat attenuation of approximately 20 dB and the Custom-Made ER provides attenuation of 9, 15 or 25 dB. Both therefore provide a more natural rendering of the music. The Custom-Made 2-in-1 and Custom-Made ER are for musicians or for people that set high requirements for listening to music.

Is hearing protection possible in the event of hyperacusis?

If you suffer from hyperacusis it is possible to use hearing protection to protect you against harmful noise (in excess of 80 dB(A)). For hyperacusis it is often recommended to remain exposed to normal background noise. Avoiding noise or wearing earplugs can encourage hyperacusis but in some cases it is recommended. If in doubt please refer the customer to his/her GP or Ear, Nose and Throat doctor.
