3M™ E-A-Rsoft™ Yellow Neons™ Earplugs seal the earcanal with soft, slow-recovery foam for noise reduction and reliable hearing protection. The tapered earplugs are easy to roll down and insert, then expand within the earcanal for a comfortable, secure fit. Earplugs come in a poly bag to keep them clean prior to use. Regular size E-A-Rsoft Yellow Neons earplugs fit most earcanals. The large size is ideal for persons with larger earcanals. Recommended applications include assembly and mechanical, chipping, chiseling, cleaning, drilling, furnace operations, grinding, heavy equipment operations, machining, metal repair, painting, pouring/casting, power fastening, riveting, sanding, sawing and welding. These earplugs are commonly used in the following industries: agriculture, automotive, chemicals, construction, general manufacturing, healthcare, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals.

Not only is noise present in our daily routines and recreational activities, but millions of Americans work in hazardous noise on a daily basis. Estimates from the National Institutes of Health suggest that hearing loss afflicts 28 million Americans. About one third of those cases are at least partially attributable to noise. Hearing loss due to noise is almost entirely preventable by judicious use of hearing protection.
