This document is applicable to entertainment audio earmuffs. It specifies requirements on construction, design, performance, marking and user information relating to the inclusion of the entertainment audio facility.
Entertainment audio earmuffs use a wired or wireless system through which audio entertainment can be relayed. They may incorporate a radio receiver set or music player for entertainment or allow audio input from external devices.
They also offer the possibility to communicate warning signals or messages. The product standards impose a limitation on the reproduced sound pressure level at the ear.
The entertainment audio signal can be transmitted by radio (broadcast or local plant programmes) or by wire or other communication like Bluetooth.
