Please take every precaution to protect your hearing! And if you wear the SeboTek PAC, ask your hearing care professional about the ability to program one of your device's memories as an Electronic Earplug. The PAC is the only device in the world that offers this benefit, which can provide protection against loud, sudden noises, without eliminating the benefits your hearing instrument provides otherwise.
