For those woodworking enthusiasts, 3M Company is introducing a wireless hearing protector with high fidelity speakers and an integrated microphone to enable two-way phone calls.
The new 3M™ WorkTunes™ Connect Wireless Hearing Protector helps provide hearing protection that woodworkers need for days spent around routers, jig saws, and power drills. At the same time, it keeps users connected with its integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology, allows them to make and take phone calls on-the-job, and adds an element of fun to the work day with its high fidelity speakers that stream users’ entertainment of choice.
This new hearing protector is easy to use, with a simple single-button interface, and Audio Assist for easy setup. It was designed to be light weight and low profile with no cords or antennae to get hung up. It has a flexible headband with cutouts to improve comfort when worn with caps. This product is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery, has an Auto Shut-off feature and an audible battery status indicator.
“It’s important for woodworkers to protect their hearing while working on projects. They are often exposed to loud and constant noise for much or all of their day”, said Lindsay Adams of the 3M Construction and Home Improvement Markets Division. “Wearing hearing protection isn’t always top of mind, but we’ve designed a product to help meet the protection needs yet add function and fun making it more desirable to wear”.
The new 3M™ WorkTunes™ Connect Wireless Hearing Protector with Bluetooth® wireless technology is available online and at home centers, hardware and mass retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.3m.com/WorkTunesConnect.
