Sordin Supreme Pro Gets a Makeover
From 1983 to 2019, MSA Safety Inc. and Sordin partnered in creating the best hearing protection available in the world. Together these companies created some of the most successful military ear defenders.
However, since 2019, their partnership has ended, and now they are competing against each other again – why is this?
Today I will examine why MSA and Sordin have decided to go their separate ways and what advantages this brings them both.
The now Sordin Supreme Pro X is a high-end hearing protection and enhancement device for extreme noise environments. It features an advanced digital sound processor, allowing users to customize their listening experience with up to four sound profiles. The headset also has an adjustable headband and soft ear cushions for maximum comfort. Additionally, the Sordin Supreme Pro X is waterproof.
But why did MSA and Sordin split?
Background on MSA
MSA (Mine Safety Appliances) is a global leader in developing, manufacturing and supplying safety products that protect people and facility infrastructures. Founded in 1914, MSA has been providing innovative solutions to industrial workers for over 100 years. Their product range includes respiratory protection, head protection, hearing protection, eye protection, fall protection and gas detection equipment.
How About Sordin?
Sordin is a Swedish company specializing in producing high-quality hearing protection and communication solutions. Founded in 1976, Sordin has become one of the leading brands in the industry, offering products such as their flagship product, the Sordin Supreme Pro X. This headset is designed to provide superior sound quality and comfort for users who need to protect their hearing while still being able to communicate in noisy environments.
Why did MSA and Sordin split?
MSA and Sordin split due to differences in their business strategies. MSA wanted to provide safety products for industrial workers, while Sordin wanted to produce high-quality hearing protection and communication solutions. As a result, the two companies decided to go their separate ways.
In 2015, MSA and Sordin announced that they would be splitting up, with MSA taking over the production of the Sordin Supreme Pro X earmuff.
What are the features of the Sordin Supreme Pro X?
The Sordin Supreme Pro X is a high-end hearing protection and enhancement device for extreme noise environments. It features an advanced digital sound processor, allowing users to customize their listening experience with four modes.
A. Comfort and design
The Sordin Supreme Pro X earmuffs are designed for maximum comfort and protection. The soft, foam-filled ear cups provide a snug fit that blocks out noise while still allowing you to hear conversations and other sounds.
The adjustable headband ensures a perfect fit for any head size, and the lightweight design makes it comfortable to wear for extended periods. The earmuffs also feature a waterproof design, making them ideal for wet or humid environments.
B. Noise reduction capabilities
The Sordin Supreme Pro X earmuffs are designed to provide superior noise reduction capabilities. The earmuffs feature a unique design that utilizes two layers of acoustic foam and an adjustable headband for a comfortable fit.
The earmuffs also feature an advanced digital signal processor that helps reduce background noise and amplify essential sounds. This allows the user to focus on their task without being distracted by loud noises. The earmuffs also feature a noise reduction rating of up to 30dB, making them ideal for extreme noise environments.
C. Durability and longevity
The Sordin Supreme Pro X earmuffs are renowned for their durability and longevity. Made from high-quality materials, these earmuffs are designed to withstand the toughest conditions and provide long-lasting protection against loud noises.
The headband is adjustable and made from a soft material that won’t cause discomfort even after extended use. The cups are also designed to be comfortable while providing superior noise reduction capabilities. The earmuffs are also waterproof, making them ideal for wet or humid environments.
Who’s The Supreme Pro X best for?
The Supreme Pro X is the perfect earmuff for hunters who need situation awareness and impulse sound compression.
Shooters on the range also benefit from these features, as well as the communication abilities of the Supreme Pro X.
What’s more, the communication features are used for tactical purposes by airsoft players who need a good communication headset to speak with their teammates.
These earmuffs are incredibly versatile and can be used for everyday yard work and on-site work, as they are OSHA-certified hearing protection.
Will this company change impact the product?
These earmuffs are in good hands with Sordin at the lead. They were the group that brought the tactical side to MSA safety earmuffs, so they have the same focus for the product.
You will notice the earmuffs no longer have the MSA Sordin, but only the “Sordin” labeling on them.
The product remains exactly the same, but with a renewed focus only on the tactical earmuff, Sordin will improve this model.
