"The SensGard ZEM Hearing Protection works exactly as described. Loud noises are reduced but not eliminated - I can hear the sounds around me. The company is very customer oriented, from answering questions to fixing issues. I would definitely recommend these."

ZEM good but poor quality

July 12, 2010

"A little history first:
I was thrilled to discover Zem a couple years back.
The first one I purchased lasted about a year. I was disappointed when it broke.
I decided to buy 2 pairs in March this year to replace the broken one, just so that I would have backup when needed. The package arrived, and I wasn't too thrilled to see that it was made entirely of plastic (my first pair had metal inserts). The plastic looks very cheap too. I decided to be more careful. Unfortunately, one month ago (3 months of usage of one pair), on one side the plastic hinge broke. I had to switch to my backup pair.
The quality is very, very poor, in my opinion. For quality, I'd give half star.
The hearing protection is quite good, however. So, if you have a lot of money to burn and just want good hearing protection and don't have to worry about money, then I'd recommend this product. For hearing protection alone, I'd give 4 stars
Therefore, the average from my rating of both quality and effectiveness is about 2 starts.

"If you have an issue with these, contact SensGard directly. They have a guarantee against manufacturers defect and will replace your broken pair. It seems you may have been a bit unlucky having two pairs break on you. In general if you check around online, they seem to be pretty durable. And they are made in the USA. But contact them. They are customer oriented and will fix the problem for you."
