The partnership was announced ahead of the launch of SHARE, Sordin’s new electronic hearing protector. The SHARE device will launch in August 2021 and will combine Cardo Crew’s mesh communications technology with features such as ambient sound filtering, voice activation and a dedicated mobile app.
The device will allow teams on the ground to clearly pick up important sounds such as instructions from colleagues or warning signals, whilst also protecting them from potentially damaging noise from machinery and other sound.
Easy and robust communication with team members
Peter Ovrin, Global Product Manager at Sordin, commented on the partnership: “In addition to the primary function to protect against harmful noise, many users of Sordin hearing protectors need easy and robust communication with team members.”
Shachar Harari, Chief Business Officer and Head of Cardo Crew, commented: “There are countless applications and use cases, including industrial and construction environments, where the combination of Cardo Crew’s intercom system and Sordin’s expertise in designing hearing protection devices would be an excellent fit.”
