OVERVIEW

The CLARUS PRO LITE protects your hearing by blocking noise above 85 dB while simultaneously allowing ambient sounds – like voices – to safely pass through. The system also enhances sounds around you by up to 15dB with the push of a button. The system is designed for operators in need of hearing protection and hearing enhancement, but no need for communications. The CLARUS PRO LITE kit includes a carrying pouch, foam ear tips, AAA battery, user manual, lapel clip (for cable management / routing) and windscreens to prevent wind from interfering with hear-thru.

Check out our comparison table to see which CLARUS PRO is right for you!

ATTACHMENT

Installing Lapel Clip


Installing Windscreens


1. Remove windscreen from pad
2. Press adhesive side onto earbud

Unlike the cables on your standard audio ear buds, CLARUS PRO LITE is designed to route cables out of the way, by routing them around the ears and behind your head. The control box can be mounted on your belt, your collar, , or in your pocket via the clip on the back of the control box.

Installing Foam Ear Tips

A firm fit ensures all-day comfort and maximum hearing protection. Here are a few tips to ensure the right fit.


a. Roll foam between fingers before inserting.
b. Hold top of ear gently back and outward top open ear canal before inserting.
c. Twist ear bud into ear canal until cable is on top, facing forward, and ear bud is nested in the concha bowl of your outer ear.

Note: Foam Ear Tips should be replaced after 3-4 weeks of use.

Donning The Headset


1. Position ear buds in ears
2. Run cables behind ears
3. Tighten nape adjuster to pull in cable slack
4. Attach control unit to back of collar, belt, pocket, or where ever is comfortable for you
5. Position lapel clip according to your preference

OPERATION

After inserting the earbuds, insert a AAA battery into the control box, and then press and hold control button until you hear “Unit On”. Once unit is powered on, you can now cycle through the “hear-thru” hearing enhancement levels. There are four Hear-Thru levels and hear-thru off. Press and release the control button to change hearing enhancement level incrementally by 3 dB. Adjust enhancement level to best suit your environment and individual hearing.
