Honeywell Safety Products Introduces New Max® Small Pink Earplugs For People With Smaller Ear Canals
SMITHFIELD, R.I., Oct. 22, 2013 — Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced new MAX® Small Pink earplugs — a bright pink version of its popular orange MAX Small single-use earplug for people with smaller ear canals.
MAX Small earplugs were introduced in 2011 in response to reports from people with smaller ear canals about having trouble obtaining a good fit — and adequate protection — from other high-attenuating roll-down foam earplugs. Since the launch, user feedback about MAX Small has included requests for a version in pink.
In response, a new pink version, MAX Small Pink, has been introduced and is available now for a limited time only. MAX Small Pink earplugs features include:
- The same bell shape and patented varied-cell polyurethane foam as the standard Howard Leight® MAX earplug — but are 20% smaller in volume;
- A reduced size that offers workers with smaller ear canals a better and more comfortable fit;
- A higher attenuation (NRR 30) than other larger single-use earplugs.
MAX Small Pink is available now, in both corded and uncorded models, from industrial safety distributors in the U.S. and Canada.
