Protecting your senses
Whether you are using a headset in the office or on the road, hearing protection should be a guarantee, not a luxury. For over 50 years, Plantronics has been dedicated to creating headsets that provide customers with a safe audio experience, without sacrificing quality.
Plantronics promises to deliver our customers with products that will protect them from long term daily noise exposure and identify and remove acoustic startle events that are either uncomfortable, or can potentially become stress inducing. To ensure a superior – and safe – audio experience Plantronics headsets come equipped with a fail-safe acoustic protection technology, called SoundGuard™.
See how Plantronics has set the standards for the industry
SoundGuard is the acoustic limiting technology that is present in all communications headsets from Plantronics that protects against sounds above 118dBA.
SoundGuard Plus is an analog compression technology that actively reduces any short and long term uncomfortable noises and maintains sound at a comfortable to level.
SoundGuard Digital has all the benefits of SoundGuard, plus anti-startle protection which detects and eliminates sudden increases in sound, and measures and controls sound to prevent the average daily sounds exposure from exceeding 80dBA or 85dBA time-weighted average (TWA).
