3M TEKK Protection Technology
Protect your ears while keeping yourself motivated at your job site with your favorite tunes or radio programming with the 3M TEKK WorkTunes. An integrated AM/FM radio and stereo input jack for connecting an MP3 player, you can enjoy music while taking part in activities that require hearing protection. A great choice for use on construction sites, in the workshop, or in the yard while mowing, the WorkTunes hearing protector offers an EPA noise reduction rating of 22 decibels.
You'll enjoy convenient, comfortable hearing protection from the WorkTunes headset, which features lightweight gel/foam cushions that feel great even after wearing for an entire day, an adjustable stainless steel headband with padded top. Hearing protectors are recommended whenever you encounter extended periods of sound levels regularly exceeding 85 dBA--essentially, a level of noise where you feel the need to shout in order to be heard by someone just 3-feet away.
The radio and its controls are housed in one cup, and you'll be able to quickly tune to your desired AM or FM radio stations with the easily accessible seek/scan tuning buttons. Reception strength may vary depending upon location. You can also save up to 10-preset stations. Other controls include a combined on/off/volume control and a toggle button that switches between AM and FM radio.
You can also connect an optional MP3 player (such as an Apple iPod), CD player or other portable devices via the stereo input jack. Additionally, the WorkTunes headset protects your hearing from both the external environment and the music you're listening to thanks to a volume control limiter that tops out at 85 dB.
The radio and digital input are powered by 2 AA batteries (not included), which provide approximately 140 hours of operating time.

3M WorkTunes Hearing Protectors have long been an ideal choice for noisy projects (85 decibels and up). But there was room for improvement. To enhance the durability and usability of the 3M WorkTunes Hearing Protector, it was redesigned from the inside out. Significant design improvements make the new 3M WorkTunes Hearing Protector easier to use. Innovative features like Voice Assist allow users to keep the unit on to protect their hearing, while still being able to control music and talk radio with the touch of a button. The Bass Boost option lets users customize their music experience. And with the ability to program up to 50 stations, users can listen to what they want, when they want. Stronger construction methods and more durable materials help to prevent breakage at critical points, and better withstand daily use. Enhanced radio reception, a recessed input jack, redesigned cup and cushions for reduced head pressure and a more effective seal, and a lower two-point attachment on the headband are just some of the functional and comfort improvements of the new 3M WorkTunes Hearing Protector.
