The technology keeps progressing and, from time to time, new solutions are emerging in the market – one of the more interesting options recently surfaced is 3M PELTOR TEP-100.
Hearing protection solutions by Swedish 3M PELTOR have won themselves a strong position on the market. They are popular among the military, law enforcement, as well as sport shooters, hunters, and in the industry. The name “Peltors” has almost become a benchmark for communication headsets, at least here in Europe. The latest product in 3M hearing saferty portfolio is TEP-100 (as TEP-100 EU in Europe).
