We’ve all heard the term “an ounce of prevention,” but in this case it’s 1.7 oz.–the weight of the new ZEMs hearing-protection system made by SensGard. Sound in the ear canal is directed into a hollow chamber where it is absorbed by a dampening material and cancelled out by reflection from the ends of the tube. After several months of use, I found the noise reduction comparable to earmuffs. Because they are so comfortably small and light, I wear them around my neck and put them on every time I do something noisy.
