Employers have a legal obligation to protect their employees’ hearing, as stated in the EU directive 2003/10 now the Control of Noise Work Regulations 2005 in the UK. Meanwhile, the insurance industry has seen a substantial rise in claims for Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) in the last two years.

From broadcast studios to airport runways, HDM Pro® safeguards the hearing and career of anyone using headphones, headsets and earpieces at work. What’s more, employers who adopt HDM Pro® care about the wellbeing of their employees. HDM Pro® can be used on any earpiece to prevent NIHL and ensures:

  • The hearing ability of professionals – such as those employed by broadcasters, contact centres, airports, video editing companies and the emergency services – is protected.
  • Compliance with the employee protection regulations.
  • A low intrusion solution.
  • No effect on sound quality.
  • No effect on volume until the listening dose approaches the regulated level.
  • The user is warned of the risk before any action is taken.
  • Easier communication with colleagues and management .

"After an entire day of ProTools mixing on cans for NBC sports network using HDM Pro®, my ears were less tired and I was hearing better low end and top on my speakers when returning to live mix. Only one big problem… where do I get one?"

"I found HDM Pro® to be superbly constructed and very easy to understand. It had no effect on the quality of the audio passing through it. It does take about two to three minutes to learn what you are doing but my listening experience was totally unaffected for the rest of the day (on camera 0800-1900). I would recommend HDM Pro® for all wearers of cans."
