SAN FRANCISCO –December 15, 2010 – Sensear, the world’s leading high noise communication headset manufacturer, recently debuted its market-changing Intrinsically Safe (IS), Smart Muff, at the Oil & Gas technology trade exhibition OSEA in Singapore, November 30, 2010 –December 3, 2010. The product debut was presented to the global event’s largest number of attendees in its 30-year existence, with record-breaking numbers of over 22,000 industry professionals.

The IS Smart Muff product launch represents a paradigm shift for high noise communication in the
Intrinsically Safe category and was very well received by end-users and distributors throughout the region. “Sensear is without peer in the market. No other product can provide the complete and practical combination of hearing protection and communication while maintaining situational awareness,” said Patrick Gallagher, Executive Chairman of distribution partner, Attune Hearing.

The IS Smart Muff is a recent addition to the innovative range of high noise communication devices by Sensear. Sensear’s ground-breaking SENS (speech enhancement, noise suppression) technology enables clear and safe communication in high noise environments. The IS Smart Muff brings this innovative solution to environments where hazardous and potentially combustible materials exist and it is certified to IECEx and ATEX standards.

The OSEA Show was a great success for Sensear’s growth in the Asia-Pac region. According to Darren Dietz, Sensear's Sales Director for the region, “We had more end-users and distributors come to our booth than any other trade show in the region. It was clear that workers in the Oil and Gas industry are looking for a solution like Sensear.”

Sensear invited a number of its partners from South Africa, Singapore, and Australia to join them at the show and they were impressed by the reaction and future potential for their respective
businesses that the show generated.

Said Patrick Gallagher “The recent addition of Intrinsically Safe capability makes Sensear the clear market leader”. Sensear’s IS Smart Muff is now available for demonstration and purchase.
