Hearing Protection for The Race Track

One of the most exciting things about auto racing is listening to your favorite team’s communications on your scanner. But background noise often drowns out the conversation.

Low Frequency Noise

The noise at auto racing events is predominantly in the low frequencies. Low frequency noise from engines, motors and the crowd are the noises that tend to make speech unintelligible and are 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).

Catch all the action!

The NoiseBuster® Active Noise Reduction (ANR) Earmuff offers a perfect solution for this noise problem. Unlike traditional hearing protection devices used by motor sports fans, the NoiseBuster® ANR Safety Earmuff reduces the low frequency noise generated by engines and motors. And when combined with the NoiseBuster's superior passive attenuation, (26dB depending upon model) provides you with the best environment for listening to your favorite driver and his pit crew.

So, join the team. Just plug your scanner into the NoiseBuster's audio port and you'll be right in the middle of the action, hearing every word, crystal clear!

Protect your hearing

Peak noise levels at these events can reach 130 decibels (dB), similar to the noise level emitted from a jackhammer. Prolonged exposure to these noise levels can cause temporary and then permanent hearing damage. The NoiseBuster ANR Safety Earmuff is the best option for protecting your hearing and enjoying the race.
