No one ear canal is shaped the same. uvex earplugs are available in a variety of shapes and sizes and expand up to 30x slower than the competition – giving you time to properly compress and insert the earplugs.
All day comfort
Shape matters for all-day comfort and compliance. uvex challenges the “one-size-fits-all” mentality to offer custom-fitting features like different sizes, tapered structures, oval shapes, and scientifically-designed interior channels that accommodate a range of ear canal sizes.
Quality and technology makes all the difference. Engineered with premium high-density foam and scientifically-designed, uvex were the first to offer an innovative, unique oval design that adjusts perfectly to the anatomy of the ear canal. This not only increases comfort, but it also makes for easy removal.
Ergonomic design meets style and convenience. Our lightweight, pressure-free fit combined with high levels of protection offers noise reduction ratings between 24-37 decibels, keeping you safe and compliant on the job.
Every ear is different
Ear canals vary in size and shape just like the rest of our body, so it’s important to choose adequate and suitable hearing protection that is the correct size to achieve a good fit. Contrary to popular belief, hearing loss is not inevitable and it can be prevented by identifying the exposure levels, reducing the risk of harmful noise levels at source, or by wearing adequate and suitable hearing protection which has been correctly fitted. uvex offers a complete range of hearing protection to ensure all wearers are able to achieve a fit that’s right for them.
uvex earplugs are oval shaped like your ear canal for a natural fit and easy removal.
Not all earplugs are created equally. Comfort is essential if you rely on hearing protection at work for most of the day. When we develop our products, we place great importance on ergonomics and an optimal fit in the ear canal. The specially formulated polyurethane foam developed in-house for uvex earplugs creates a hygienic sealed surface and improves the pressure on the ear canal to ensure a comfortable wearing experience.
The x-shaped grip technology means there is less material at the entrance of the ear canal reducing contact pressure while being fully closed. X-grip technology also helps with easy plug removal.
The foam pads of the uvex x-cap are made of two components, so the earplugs do not move when worn, while the oval form mimics the entrance to the ear canal, guaranteeing extremely high wearer comfort.
Extra soft memory foam
The uvex K-series earmuffs deliver outstanding comfort and a pressure-free fit through their use of lightweight materials and extra-soft memory foam ear cushions, together with a breathable headband.
Quality and technology makes all the difference. We understand that for safe and efficient work the design, type and quality of materials used to produce hearing protection all have a bearing on the protective properties, comfort and fit. Slow expansion foam ensures an accurate and unique fit to your ear canal, that’s more comfortable for long periods of wear and, most importantly, provides full-spectrum noise protection you can trust.
uvex's range of detectable hearing protection all feature integrated metal parts and are blue in colour to enable easy recognition, both visually and by machines, in production areas.
Designed for speech perception
uvex hi-com earplugs are strategically designed to block loud, hazardous noise levels from damaging your eardrum, while still giving you excellent speech and warning signal perception for effective communication.
Slow-expanding PU foam
Taking over two minutes to fully expand, uvex’s unique, slow-expanding PU foam allows more time to insert the earplug properly, helping to create an exact contour to your ear canal shape for a more secure, low-pressure fit.
Style meets comfort and safety meets design
We all want to look and feel good. uvex provide a range of hearing protection styles, including innovatively shaped and extremely comfortable disposable earplugs, with patented x-grip shaping for easy and safe removal; reusable earplugs conveniently attached to a handy cord, designed to be cleaned easily and hygienically stored in individual carrying cases; detectable earplugs designed to be picked up both visually and by machines, thanks to their striking blue colour and metal ball; and highly compatible ear muffs, with soft memory foam cushions for extra comfort and lightweight, balanced designs. As a result, hearing protection is more likely to remain in place throughout the day and employees will remain compliant.
