Introducing the New 3M E-A-R Flexible Fit Earplug

Breakthrough innovations in hearing protection don’t happen every day.

That’s why we’re excited to introduce the 3M E-A-R Flexible Fit Earplug. It’s the first washable foam earplug that offers two distinctive attenuation ratings, dependent on one-hand or two-hand fitting method with SNR 30 dB and 35 dB respectively.*

    The first earplug with a one-hand insertion SNR claim.

    • Washable reusable foam:
      The 3M E-A-R Flexible Fit Earplug has a patented foam formulation which makes the earplug fully washable and reusable for up to two weeks.

      Firm, yet flexible fitting stem:
      The soft foam tip and flexible foam-covered fitting stem allows easy insertion into the ear canal using one or two hands.

      Durable foam encapsulated design:
      The shape of the earplug tip along with the soft conforming foam helps to provide a snug yet comfortable fit that helps reduce exposure to hazardous noise levels.

      Roll down not required:
      The no roll-down design of the foam tip makes it easier to insert with the flexible fitting stem when wearers have gloved or dirty hands. By eliminating the need to roll-down the foam, the tip remains clean.
