March 4, 2015: Perth Australia: Sensear, a global leader in developing and manufacturing best-in-class digital communication headsets, announced the release today of their new smartPlug™.  The Sensear smartPlug™ is a digital in-ear-headset solution for use in some of the world’s largest industries, where high noise and extreme environments are part of the everyday challenges to communications, hearing protection, and situational awareness.

The smartPlug™ features an innovative ground-up design; including an 82 dB(A) noise-limited in-ear and in-ear voice pick-up microphone allowing the wearer to clearly pick up speech from the inner ear canal. Equipped with Sensear’s industry-leading SENS® Technology that enhances speech and suppresses noise, users of the smartPlug™ are able to communicate safely in high-noise environments, while effectively maintaining 360° situational awareness.


This solution-based design addresses the existing challenges of communication in high noise by transmitting through workers' existing communication systems via cable or Bluetooth connections for increased clarity of sound, productivity, and safety.  Additionally, the new smartPlug™ provides up to a 31dB NRR level of protection – suitable for some of the loudest industrial noise environments anywhere in the world.  The smartPlug™ allows for more freedom of movement, and increased safety and is now a market-changing solution for users with respirator PPE requirements in their workplace, or simply for those users preferring an in-ear headset for their communications solution.

“We are extremely excited about the introduction of the smartPlug™,” said CEO Peter Larsson, “The smartPlug is unlike any other in-ear headset on the market today and provides an effective solution for so many challenges in high noise industries.”

The new unit’s rugged design comes with a belt clip for the user's ease of wear, as well as dual inline push-to-talk (PTT) buttons allowing for easy triggering of the PTT and other communication functions. The new smartPlug™ includes disposable foam or silicone ear tip options for user comfort, and a rechargeable battery with 15 hours of battery life, lowering the total cost of ownership compared to AA batteries.
