ISOtunes latest set of ear defenders have a rather sleek look in comparison to the other ear defenders in their range which is always welcome, if only to make it easier to avoid bumping in to things with them! But, much like their forebears they have all the things you come to expect on a set of ear defenders – IPX4 rated so they’re good for when it rains or when it’s a hot day and sweat is building up, 30dB SNR which reduces the amount of sound coming through to you ears by 30 decibels (that’s certified by the way) and a noise-isolating microphone allowing you to have crystal clear conversations when needed.

Those aren’t the only features of course. This set of ear defenders are compatible with Siri and Google Voice so you can tell them what to do with whatever you’re listening too that you’ve connected up via Bluetooth. A word of warning though, the Bluetooth is only version 4.2 and so some more modern devices may not be able to connect at all – check before you buy to save yourself a lot of grief! The battery is good for about 11 hours so should be more than enough to see you through a working day before re-charging once you arrive home and it doesn’t take long to do that.

The omni-directional microphones on the exterior monitor external sound and then send it through to the earpiece. If it detects a noise that is too loud, it will automatically either reduce it or block it out altogether (and does so in the space of milliseconds) so you only get to hear what you need to hear and you can be safe in the knowledge that your hearing will be protected from the majority of loud noises you’re likely to face.

A solid pair of ear defenders although a bit puzzled why they settled for just Bluetooth 4.2…
  • Good level of noise reduction
  • Mic works well
  • Good battery life
  • IPX4 rating
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • The noise cancelling noise itself is quite loud oddly
