I am a dealer and would like to sell the HEAROS products in my store. How do I get started?
The HEAROS products were introduced because there was a void in the marketplace for a high quality, branded line of ear products. Whether you have a need for noise reduction (sleeping, studying, traveling), hearing protection (concerts, target practice) or water protection (swimming, surfing), the HEAROS line has a high quality product that can work for you.
It depends on your intended use. We have earplugs for musicians, earplugs for sleeping, earplugs for swimming, ear plugs for shooting guns, ear plugs for traveling and many other types of ear plugs. To see all of our ear plug products, click here.
Similar to sun tan lotion’s SPF or Sun Protection Factor, the NRR tells you how many decibels you can expect the products to reduce (when wearing the product properly). For example, let’s say that you are attending a concert where the sound is 120 decibels. When you wear our HEAROS disposable foam ear plugs with a NRR of 30 dB, you can expect the sound level entering your ear to be 90 dB (120-30=90).
Your hearing is sensitive and powerful. Therefore, it is virtually impossible to block out all noise using HEAROS and Sleep Pretty in Pink ear plugs. However, our ear plugs will help filter out potentially damaging and annoying sounds.
Believe it or not, there is a learning curve for getting a proper fit with ear protection products. We recommend that you follow our ear plug instructions exactly as they are stated on the back of each product.
Tips: The neutral foam products require that you “roll” not “twist” the entire ear filter prior to insertion. Also, make sure that you remember to “lift up” your ear using the opposite hand of the ear canal you wish to insert the product in.
HEAROS are available at over 50,000 stores worldwide. Please refer to our online and in-store retailers page on this site for specific locations. We prefer that you make all purchases through our brick and click retailers. You may also purchase direct from DAP World, Inc. using a prepaid check or money order (minimum order value is $25).
We gratefully welcome all new customers. In most cases it is probably easiest to purchase through one of our many ear plug distributors.
