Earmuffs must fully enclose the ears to seal against the head. Adjust the headband so cushions exert even pressure around the ears to get the best noise reduction. Pull hair back and out from beneath the cushions. Do not wear caps, store pencils behind the ear or anything that may break the seal. Note: Users of 3M products should be familiar with User Instructions before use.
