Hearing Protection

Different environments call for different levels of protection. The A-range provides two models for the most common situations needing hearing protection with NRR rating from 24 to 28

Hearing protection range designed to augment their growing range of fully ANSI and EN certified safety equipment.

Iterative CAD work help flesh out numerous styling concepts.

We looked at:

  • Manufacturability
  • Style
  • Part Count
  • How the unit worked

A large emphasis was placed on usability for the overhead ear protection

All the parts, from the headband and the helmet clip, to the shell and ear cushions were explored and developed. We obsessed over tiny details and how parts interacted with each other to produce a holistic design

Research the market

Competitor products were extensively researched and analyzed to find what characteristics were desirable and which ones had to be avoided.

We tested recordings of different earmuffs to determine what features offered the best noise insulation.

Research played a critical role in design decisions and sped up the R&D process

Selected work

With you every step of the process

We believe in building products that make sense for the real world.

"We have developed more than 10 products with DMC. The team have incredible technical skills and are so easy to work with. They know how to listen, track our meetings, and give us clear project timelines."


Plan properly and set up a strong foundation for your product’s development. Research and initial concept exploration goes a long way in ensuring your product idea is viable.

Ideation and Design

Figure out the function, explore the aesthetics and choose a basic conceptual direction to create solution for your business. Expect sketching, CAD and prototyping in this phase.

Engineering Design

Turn that concept design into a fully functional physical prototype that can be manufactured. It's imperative we test our assumptions in the real world and make sure your design can be manufactured!


Finally, your idea is validated, the product can be mass manufactured, and you're now ready to set up your manufacture partners and begin selling your idea to the world.
