Ear Defenders

The EAVE Work MKI. is the markets first ear defender that has integrated hearing protection, communication in noise, and noise monitoring software into one piece of kit.

The EAVE Work MKI surpasses all current hearing protection solutions reducing risks to health and safety while improving productivity and efficiency. The EAVE Work MKI ensures employees are protected at all times by enabling communication and environmental awareness with the headset on.


The EAVE Work MKI uses a combination of software that up until now was only used for hearing aids. It compresses noise hazards, while enhancing speech, in order to protect the users hearing without robbing them of their senses. With a combination of digital signal processing and beam forming the MKI’s 4 microphones capture the frequency of voice and separate and amplify it from other frequencies. This means, that while paired with a radio or bluetooth the MKI enhances the users speech communication.

To achieve this, the team at EAVE, based in London, UK, has developed the first Smart Ear Defenders. The Smart Ear Defenders integrate active hearing protection, Bluetooth connectivity and automated noise exposure monitoring.

The EAVE Smart Ear Defenders demonstrate how the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) can be applied to occupational health to offer a complete reimagining of what is possible when improving occupational health & safety, welfare, productivity and efficiency.
