Hearing Protection For Landscapers
Landscape professionals and do-it-yourselfers are both exposed to high levels of noise from lawnmowers and leaf blowers. Over time, this noise exposure can lead to hearing damage. The noise level from a typical gas-powered lawn mower is 85-90 dB and 100dB from a typical leaf blower.

Low Frequency Noise
The noise from these machines is predominantly in the low frequencies. Low frequency noise from engines, motors and fans is not easily eliminated with traditional passive hearing protection devices. Low frequency noise waves are long and carry great distances. They can penetrate passive barriers like foam earcups or even cement walls (which is why you can hear the bass of your neighbor’s stereo).
