OHROPAX Color

Add a splash of colour to your day-to-day life and to your ears. Shut noise out with OHROPAX Color.
 
OHROPAX Color puts a damper on noise! These brightly coloured earplugs made of soft and skin-friendly foam are ideal for parties, concerts, leisure activities, sport and anywhere irritating noise plays a role.
 
Clubs, parties, concerts, festivals and sports events are often so noisy that they can even be dangerous to your health, meaning that hearing protection is an essential companion. OHROPAX Color is the ideal product to suit these needs. The plugs sit firmly in the ear and also look great thanks to their bright colours, meaning that you can dance the night away and enjoy the music without worrying about damaging your ears.
 
OHROPAX Color turns down the volume in style.

 

 

 

 
 
 
 

1. Roll the earplug between clean fingers into a tight cylinder.

2. Pull the ear slightly upward with one hand and insert the rolled earplug deep into the ear canal with the other.

3. Use a finger to hold the earplug in place until it has expanded and is in a secure and comfortable position.

 

 

 
 

 

Before using this product to protect your ears against loud noise, please check whether the earplug is suitable for the exposure in question. You can do so by taking the sound insulation values and safety instructions into account (see product information).

 
 
 
 

Sound Insulation in Accordance with EN 24869-1

 

 

OHROPAX Color exhibits high sound insulation values over the entire frequency range.

 

1. Determine the level of the sound exposure (in dB) at the frequency in question (for example by referring to the device specifications).
2. Subtract the corresponding assumed protection value (also known as the APV and marked as "Angen. Schutz" [Assumed protection value]  in the table above) from the sound level.
3. If the result of this subtraction is below 85dB, the product will sufficiently protect your ears against the sound. This applies to a daily exposure period of up to 8 hours.
 
You can also use the following (approximate) average values for a simpler calculation:
• SNR value (single number rating, general insulation)
• H-value (high, for higher frequencies)
• M-value (medium, for midrange frequencies)
• L-value (low, for lower frequencies)
 
Example:
A device produces a sound level of 100 dB at a frequency of 1000 Hz. OHROPAX Color insulates this sound exposure by 30.1 dB (the assumed protection value (APV)) at this frequency. A noise exposure of 69.9 dB remains. OHROPAX Color is suitable for this use because the resulting value is below 85 dB.

Reusable protective earplugs that should be moulded before use in accordance with the standard EN 352-2:2002. Tested on 5/4/2002 by the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health (FIOH), Topeliuksenkatu 41b, 00250 Helsinki, Finland (no. 0403)

• Carefully insert the earplug per the directions for use.
• Please ensure that the product is handled hygienically. The ears and earplugs must be clean and dry.
• The earplugs must be continually worn in areas with exposure to noise.
• When they are not in use, store the plugs in their original packaging and away from heat and direct sunlight.
• To clean the earplugs (which is possible up to a maximum of 2 times), simply rub the surface of the plug with a small amount of mild soap solution without pressing down. Rinse the earplugs and leave them to air dry until completely dry. Do not wring!
• This product may be affected by certain chemical substances.
For more information on this issue, please contact the manufacturer.
• Sudden or abrupt removal of the protective earplug from the ear canal may damage the eardrum.

Uses for OHROPAX Color
 
Private Use
If you are often exposed to noise during your leisure time or would simply like a bit of peace and quiet, OHROPAX Color is the ideal earplug for you.
 
In the Workplace
• The legal regulations stipulate that noise protection must be worn in areas with exposure to noise in excess of 85 decibels. OHROPAX Color is suitable for a wide range of uses both in such areas and in large offices.
• These earplugs do not cause sweating and pressure on the auricle as is the case with capsule ear protectors.
• People who wear glasses can wear these earplugs without any problems.
• The earplugs can be combined with protective helmets, protective goggles and capsule ear protectors. 
 
Tolerability
OHROPAX Color is considered to be extremely tolerable. It contains no ingredients that are known to cause allergies. Wearing hearing protection may initially require some getting used to. We therefore recommend that you gradually increase the length of time for which you wear your earplugs. In rare cases, you may initially hear your own pulse when wearing the earplugs. This effect will normally go away after a short period of adjustment.
