      Serenity DPC+ hearing protection with radio/phone communication

      Serenity DPC+ combines electronic level-dependent hearing protection with a sturdy integrated radio/phone communication headset. Now featuring plus-level (+) technology for enhanced listening comfort.

      This system best suits users who work in fluctuating loud noise environments but still demand clear two-way radio or cellphone/cordless phone communication with colleagues, including staff who work at heavy industry plants, rescue teams, firefighters, airport workers and more.

      In short, Serenity DPC+ combines the intelligent attenuation (in-ear noise reduction) offered by Serenity DP+ with your choice of portable two-way radio or phone compatibility.

      • Dynamic hearing protection with radio/phone communication
      • Automatic attenuation of dangerous sounds including 'impulse' noises (i.e. shots and crashes)
      • Transmission of speech, not surrounding noise
      • Natural hearing at quiet times (with adjustable ambient volume)
      • Easy localization of warning signals

      The Serenity DPC+ hearing protection system is fully modular, meaning its ear shells can easily be unclicked and used with in any other Serenity system (except Serenity Classic).

    • eShells

      Phonak eShells

      ‘eShells’ are Phonak’s custom-molded in-ear shells. Offering the best hearing protection for full-time workers who operate in noisy environments, eShells are durable hollow molds made from clinical nylon.

      They are produced using a computerized 3D version of the user’s individual ear impression, which is taken beforehand by a hearing technician (a process that takes just 5 minutes).

      When a Serenity or Primero DPC+ system’s earJack is clicked into an eShell, the ear is instantly and fully sealed. Only sounds that have then been attenuated (reduced) by the user’s Phonak system reach the ear drum; protecting the user from dangerous noise throughout the day.

      • 100% individualized hearing protection
      • Perfect in-ear fit
      • Highly robust & machine washable 
      • Quick and cost-efficient reproduction
      • Easy to maintain and assess using SafetyMeter

      Generic ear shells are also available. These one-size-fits-all versions are ideal for temporary or part-time use. Contact us for more details.
