The right filter for you

Our music filter is designed for enjoying music without losing the acoustic quality of the experience. Loud music can damage your ears if exposed for long periods of time. If you love your ears as much as you love live music, then these are the filters for you.

Designed specifically for industrial and loud work, they remove damaging noise and enhance communication in high decibel surroundings. Whether you’re tearing up concrete, mowing the lawn, or grinding through metal, these filters will protect your ears all day long.

Designed to be worn under a helmet, these filters protect your ears from motor and wind noise, while still providing the ability to hear and communicate.

Our shooting filter is a CE-certified PPE hearing protector for all gun sports. They reduce the peak sound pressure level produced from shotguns, automatic and single gunshots, artillery fire, and explosions. If you’re pulling a trigger, you need a pair of these.

Fully metal detectable earplugs, including filter and lanyard, to help prevent contamination of products if the earplug accidentally gets into food production. The specialised filter still allows you to hear and communicate whilst you work. Made specifically for food manufacturing, they are therefore only available in colour Solid Blue

Professional custom fitting

SnugsShield tips are custom-fitted using your physical ear impressions of each ear. To get this done, you need to visit an audiologist. It’s a quick, painless procedure where they inject a foam solution into your ear to make an exact mold. This ensures your Snugs fit perfectly. And you only need to do it once.

Please note: The audiologist will charge you separately for the impressions – this is not included in the price of your Snugs.

Snugs are re-usable and will last for years. The one-off initial cost when spread over a year or more use can offer significant cost savings over using foam hearing protection earplugs, which are one use then dispose.

To verify the cost saving yourself, use our Cost Saving Calculator

Then there is the Environmental Cost: On average, each employee will dispose of 1,000 foam earplugs to landfill, per year, making Snugs the eco-friendly alternative to foam earplugs.

Exposure to loud noises can permanently damage your ears.
The louder the noise, for greater lengths of time, the greater the risk of hearing damage.

Snugs Custom-Fit Earplugs provides the best acoustic seal and maximum sound blockage, thus allowing for longer, safer exposure time to loud noises.

Noise protection is an important consideration as it is law that an employer supplies ear defenders or ear plugs to workers exposed to 80 decibels or more of noise. Employers are liable in many jurisdictions if the employees damage their hearing.

We manufacture and supply the best noise protection to help ensure companies conform to the noise at work act regulations.

Comparing different products on the market can be difficult. The higher the NRR number in USA or SNR in Europe, the greater the potential for noise reduction. However, the security of fit and canal seal in a real world situation will alter the rating which is why Snugs custom-fit have a more reliable rating than universal fit or foam earplugs.


For Employers: 

Snugs Industrial Hearing Protection is custom fit for maximum comfort, particularly in prolonged use. Fit security ensures maximum hearing protection rating performance. Also ensure dirt, dust, liquids as well as noise don’t get into your workers ears. We offer repeatable attenuation levels and performance across a team.

There is considerable cost saving with buying Snugs against foam earplugs. To verify the cost saving yourself, use our Cost Saving Calculator

Situation appropriate sound attenuation can be created by fitting filters with different levels of noise isolation for different applications.

Noise can permanently damage hearing by a single brief exposure to a loud noise, such as an explosion. Hearing damage can also occur gradually at much lower levels of noise. To protect hearing, exposure to high acoustic levels should be limited giving ears the chance to recover.

Ear defenders are often not worn correctly, or continuously, if they are uncomfortable. Our industrial hearing protection can be worn for long periods without any discomfort. They last for years and are a cost-effective way for health and safety conscious employers to deal with the high noise levels of industrial environments.

From experience we have found that supplying the best earplugs means users will wear them.

Hearing protectors must be tested and approved in the USA by the the American National Standards (ANSI) and CE certified in Europe.

Noise Reduction Ratings Explained:  Noise Reduction Rating (NRR) is a unit of measurement used to determine the effectiveness of hearing protection devices to decrease sound exposure within a given working environment. Classified by their potential to reduce noise in decibels (dB), a term used to categorise the power or density of sound.


SnugsShield tips are custom-fitted to match the unique shape and size of your ears and as such our returns policy may differ from that commonly offered with non-custom fit products. We offer a 30-day remake policy, where we will adjust the size and remake your SnugsShield tips, so they fit better. In most cases, this works out great for our customers. However, if you’re still not satisfied, then we’ll be happy to discuss a refund or gift card.

Snugs are re-usable and will last for years. A considered  environmentally friendly option; non-toxic to people, our planet (including our seas) compared with plastic based or disposable foam earplugs.

If you use your Snugs a lot, there will likely be a build-up of natural oils. If this is the case, you can then wash them in hand-hot soapy water (washing up liquid works best), and allow them to dry naturally. Do not use anything abrasive when cleaning your Snugs as this may damage the silicone.
