Noise Attenuating Helmets

 Noise attenuating helmets protect the wearer from hearing loss, crash impact, and eye injuries. Helmets can also improve communication through use of a radio communication piece.

These helmets consist of the following components:

  • Basic helmet
  • Liner
  • Ear cups
  • Visors
  • Chin and nape straps with ear cup retaining pads
  • Boom microphone, and
  • Speakers

Technologically advanced helmets include active noise-reducing systems that monitor the sound energy around the ears and cancel any unwanted noise while preserving verbal communication. Communication ear plugs serve as microphones and can be worn in addition to the helmet for high-quality verbal clarity.

Noise attenuating helmets come in a variety of types. When the fit is accurate and secure, helmets are among the safest hearing protection devices.
