Klein Earbuds Provide High-Quality Stereo Audio While Protecting Your Hearing
Klein tells us that one of the main causes of hearing loss is loud sounds and exposure to noisy environments like construction sites. To combat this, Klein has released the Bluetooth Jobsite Earbuds. These earbuds not only provide passive hearing protection, but they also provide balanced and clean sound when streaming audio.
What Klein Has to Say About the Jobsite Earbuds
Klein Tools’ new Bluetooth Jobsite Earbuds have an NRR of 28 decibels, meaning they offer the necessary hearing protection to continue working without damaging your ears, preventing premature hearing loss. Not only that, but these earbuds deliver clear, crisp sound and have a built-in microphone, so you can listen to music and take calls without slowing down on the jobsite.Anthony Pawula, product manager at Klein Tools
Klein Bluetooth Earbuds: What’s the Big Deal?
The Klein Bluetooth Jobsite Earbuds use passive noise reduction to protect your hearing. Note that these don’t provide any noise-cancelling technology, but seal the ear canal to drop the noise levels by 28dB(A). When your typical construction site poses a threat to your hearing, a 28dB reduction can help out a lot.
These earbuds also provide seamless streaming of stereo audio via a Bluetooth 5.0 connection to your devices. They also feature a built-in microphone so that you can take phone calls without having to stop what you’re doing.
The Klein Earbuds function similarly to other popular wireless earbuds on the market. They run on lithium-ion batteries and feature a runtime of up to 5 hours before you need to plug them back into their case for recharging. The case itself has a battery with a 10-hour runtime, offering up to 15 hours of total runtime between the earbuds and the case. Klein tells us that each component fully recharges in around 2 hours.

I haven’t even had these a year yet and you can barely hear anything out of the right earbud. Also to get them to charge you have to wiggle the earbuds while seated in the case to get the red blinking light on the earbuds. Definitely not worth the money. If I could remember where I bought them I would have returned them already.
Nice, but it’s a NO for me. I like the style that also wraps around the ear, so even if they lose their seal, they don’t fall onto the floor.
I use those every week at work, beats the shit out of walkie talkies.
