Hearing protection for swimming
Winner Red Dot Award 2015
Alpine Hearing Protection has won the Red Dot Award 2015 for the design of its latest earplugs. The jury of this prestigious design price applauded the “high quality and the innovative ability” of the earplugs.
Revolutionary earplug model
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a perfect new earplug model. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs, provides a natural flat absorption and a prefect fit.
AlpineAcousticFilters™ – Say no to water & yes to sound
The special acoustic filters in SwimSafe earplugs ensure that all ambient sounds remain as audible as possible. These unique filters also ensure you can still follow conversations. A small duct in the filters prevents a sense of isolation and the shape of the hearing protection prevents water getting into your ears. SwimSafe earplugs are unsuitable for deep diving. We advise using the hearing protection at a depth of no more than 1 metre under water.
Alpine’s innovative earplugs are made from thermoplastic material especially developed by Alpine: AlpineThermoShape. This material adapts to the shape of the ears so that the earplugs fit the auditory ducts perfectly. You are guaranteed a comfortable fit without unpleasant pressure on your ears. You are assured that the earplugs remain in the right position, providing optimal noise attenuation. ATS contains no silicone, thus causing no allergic reactions.
In addition to the easy-to-use storage container, every SwimSafe pack also contains a trendy Alpine Miniboxx. You can take this super-handy little storage container to the swimming pool and attach it to your swimming bag, or around your wrist when you go into the water. The Miniboxx can also be attached to your wetsuit.
Lifespan and cleaning
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
The design of the Alpine hearing protectors is an exclusive Dutch Design. All earplugs and filter systems are produced in the Netherlands.
