3M recently settled their claim with the United States Military over their defective earplugs, Duel-Ended Combat Earplugs that were sold after prior knowledge the earplugs were ineffective.

These earplugs were originally marketed as “combat earplugs”: designed for the purpose of blocking out the loud noises experienced by troops fighting in the front lines. Two different versions of these earplugs were designed: a single-ended model and a dual-ended model.

The appeal of the Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs was their namesake duality function. When worn on one side, it allowed the wearer to hear the sounds around them at a reasonable volume, such as verbal commands on the battlefield. When worn in the opposite direction, the Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs were purported to act as an extra layer of protection from the sounds of gunfire and explosions.

Who May Be Affected?

The Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs were standard issued equipment for soldiers while engaging in foreign conflicts and wars between 2003 and 2015. Thousands of service members have been affected by tinnitus, bilateral or unilateral hearing loss.

Have You or a Loved One Been Affected by Hearing Loss?

You may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturers of these earplugs:

  • Serve in the military between 2003-2015
  • Were issued earplugs during service
  • Suffer from tinnitus or permanent hearing loss
