About 3M Combat Arms Earplugs »

3M’s Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs were used by the military from 2003-2015 during combat and training exercises. The unique design of the device allowed for two different levels of noise protection - Open/Weapons Fire mode and Closed/Constant Protection mode. These earplugs are easily identifiable by their half green, half yellow coloring.

Injury Risks »

It is alleged by the government that the 3M Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs, Version 2 (CAEv2) did not meet the noise reduction rating (NRR) that 3M claimed. Due to the alleged faulty nature of the ear plugs, service men and women were exposed to higher levels of damaging noise than the device was supposed to allow. Dangerous noise levels can cause permanent damage to the human ear resulting in tinnitus and partial or total hearing loss.
