Filtered earplugs that let you enjoy and feel the music
Notes: Pacato from ACS brings a whole new level of fidelity and comfort to ready-to-go earplugs.
Now with new packaging and contents, designed to reduce waste and single use plastic.
The Pacato plug is comfortable, completely discreet and offers the most natural sound of any generic fit earplug in its class. With Pacato you can hear what you need to hear with all the clarity that you're used to and easily converse and communicate without putting your hearing at risk.
The Pacato is one of the most discreet universal-fit plugs available with a flush fitting filter that enables the plug to sit comfortably in the ear with no protrusion making them ideal for use under headwear or in any situation where discretion for the wearer is desired.
Offering an average of 16dB protection the Pacato is suitable for use in most amplified music or other loud noise environments keeping your hearing safe from damaging exposure to excessive noise but ensuring that you stay involved in the performance. Using Pacato earplugs you can enjoy your music at a level that suits you without losing the fidelity of the sound as you might with foam earplugs, in addition, the Pacato keeps all the atmosphere allowing you to hear what's going on around you and communicate clearly with others so you don't have to feel isolated from the music, the atmosphere or the people to keep your hearing safe from harm.
Trying to create a natural sounding earplug is no mean feat as far as your own voice is concerned because, as you will have experienced, when you block off your ear canal your own voice starts to boom inside your head, this is what we call occlusion. Occlusion is caused by sound that is carried to your ear canal through the cartilage at the side of your head and usually escapes through the open ear canal so is not heard. When we block off the canal this sound cannot escape and so creates that booming effect.
A large amount of occlusion can be eliminated by ensuring that the earplug sits deep enough into the ear canal to extend past the cartilage so that the sound hits the plug and is deadened rather than entering the canal at all but the Pacato filters go one step further. The Pacato is vented to allow sound to pass both ways which means that remaining sound can escape directly through the filter providing one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.
The Pacato also offers resilience to moisture and wax build up. Being shielded from external moisture with the hard outer shell means that the fabric filter membrane is protected from the elements so your earplug will keep on performing in adverse conditions but, in addition, the filters and plugs can be cleaned to keep them performing for years to come.
The Pacato plugs from ACS offer a perfect cost-effective solution to protect your hearing in a variety of environments whilst making sure that you get one of the most natural sounding earplugs available.
Filtered earplugs providing optimum protection from high impulse noise
Notes: For higher levels of noise protection the PRO Impulse can be worn in conjuction with over-ear headsets.
The new universal fit version with soft in-ear tips is now available for 'off the shelf' convenience.
The small size of Impulse filters makes them unobtrusive and comfortable to wear, fitting easily under communications headsets or earmuffs where double protection is required.
Developed for military use the Impulse filter protects hearing from gunfire, artillery noise and impulse sounds from nail guns, drop hammers and riveting.
Designed to allow air to enter the ear, this unique filter technology retains spatiality and sound directionality as required in hunting and combat situations. Unlike competing products this ventilation minimises the occlusion effect and reduces irritation within the ear canal, maximising user comfort so limiting the causes of inflammation and infection.
The Impulse filter has undergone full environmental testing for humidity, hot and cold temperatures, 12-hour comfort and sand storms. Fully washable with water and normal detergents, Impulse is suitable for all outdoor and indoor situations.
The Impulse filter with custom mould has a constant noise SNR value of 15dB (estimated), suitable for continuous safe use to 100dB.
ANSI IPIL certified impulse protection is 33.1 dB maximum.
Please ensure that a noise assessment is carried out on site before purchasing your hearing protection as it is imperative the correct protection level is used.
