SMITHFIELD – Honeywell Safety Products has introduced its new line of digital radio and sound amplification earmuffs to its Howard Leight Sync family of products.
The new Sync Digital AM/FM Radio, Sync Hi-Vis AM/FM Radio and Sync Electo combine hearing protection and high-fidelity sound to offer customers the ability to listen to the radio or personal listening device safely, according to the company.
“Studies show that workers who are allowed to wear hearing protectors that integrate personal listening devices and AM/FM radios are more productive and motivated on the job,” said the Honeywell release. “With the new Sync Digital AM/FM Radios and Electo earmuffs, workers can not only be more productive, they will enjoy their listening experience even more.”
The new Sync models are:
Sync Digital AM/FM Radio — delivers high-fidelity audio quality with a digital interface that automatically searches for AM and FM stations, and can store up to 10 stations in memory.
Sync Hi-Vis Digital AM/FM Radio — incorporates bright green ear cups for highly noticeable contrast in dark settings to the functionality of the new Sync AM-FM Digital radio earmuff for increased visibility and job safety.
Sync Electo — combines the entertainment benefits of Sync Digital AM/FM Radio with advanced sound amplification technology for improved situational awareness. Directionally-placed stereo microphones amplify and enhance ambient sound up to 82 dB, providing protection from hazardous noise while allowing workers to hear important communications, including alarms, warning signals, and co-workers voices.
The three new models incorporate other features of Howard Leight’s original Sync Stereo earmuff, which was introduced in March 2011.
