Ear seals and mic muff removal
Federal law requires the following statements:
“Although hearing protectors can be recommended for protection against the
harmful effects of impulsive noise, the Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is based on
the attenuation of continuous noise and may not be an accurate indicator of the
protection attainable against impulsive noise such as gunfire.”
Example
1. The environmental noise level as measured at the ear is 92dBA.
2. The NRR is 24dB.
3. The level of noise entering the ear is approximately equal to 92dBA – NRR or 68dB.
“For noise environments dominated by frequencies below 500 Hz, the
C- weighted environmental noise level should be used.”
FCC/IC Compliance
This device complies with FCC Part 15 Rules and IC RSS-213 Rules. Operation of
this is subject to the following two conditions:
1. This device may not cause harmful interference.
2. This device must accept any interference that may be received, including
