Test Results: After a ten-week test phase, 90% of our testers have reported that the noise reduction was very effective. There was no irritation during longer wearing. The disturbing noise from the surroundings was successfully suppressed, but at the same time quieter noises could be heard, e.g. the environment, conversations, rustling in the woods etc. The earplugs were particularly effective against wind noise. We have used the following test person structure:

  • Construction workers, machinists
  • Electricians, plumbers
  • Gardening, lawn mowing

During this time, our test subjects have experienced a reduction of Tinnitus irritations by up to 90%. A significant amount of noise was reduced immediately after the earplugs have been inserted. Fifteen out of twenty test persons use the earplugs only for hunting. The remaining test persons also used the hearing protectors during various tasks such as logging and sawing.

The overall test result is very positive. The BOLLSEN product stands out from other products mainly due to its effects. After only seven days, our testers noticed a significant improvement in the quality of life. There was no heat sensation and, even after two weeks of use, no irritation in the ears. Our conclusion: These earplugs offer optimal protection against loud noises without any undesired side effects.

Instruction for Use: With your index fingers insert the earplugs carefully in the ears and rotate them slowly into the ear canal. Our test persons were very satisfied with the use of the earplugs and are positively surprised by their almost invisible and optimally fitting shape.

Life Span: The manufacturer advertises that the product can be used 100 times, also for the sake of the environment. One pack of earplugs lasted with our users for about 5 – 6 months. The test persons wore the earplugs on a daily basis.

Protection of the Environment: Thumbs up on more time for the concept of reusability of the product. Furthermore, we are pleased to have finally tested a product from the EU, since shorter distances also mean less CO2 emissions in the air.

How Many dB Do the Earplugs Dampen? According to the manufacturer, the earplugs have a SNR of 24 dB and provide a constant sound reduction at high (H), medium (M) and low (L) frequencies: H=24 dB, M=21 dB, L=19 dB. The attenuation value was tested according to ISO standard 4869-2 by an independent German testing institute.

Money-Back Guarantee: BOLLSEN Hearing Protection advertises its products with a money-back guarantee, as the company obviously believes very firmly in its products. Of course, we have also tested this option and returned a pair of used earplugs after 35 days. We have been refunded our full payment amount two days after the receipt of the goods. Once again, we are pointing our thumbs up.
