This superior technology allows the wearer to hear every sound, even during high-volume noise spikes. While other brands say they have compression technology, they do not. Only Ridgeline’s DLSC technology protects hearing while allowing the wearer to hear lower volume sounds such as normal conversation at the same time. DLSC technology works by instantly compressing all noises over the 70-decible threshold by 50 percent, to a safe level, while amplifying all sounds below the threshold to 70 decibles. The result is the wearer will hear everything, including conversation, while simultaneously being protected from dangerous, high-volume sounds.
