prEN 352-8:2017 (E) 4 Introduction Entertainment audio earmuffs are designed to provide not only sound attenuation to ambient sound but also to provide entertainment audio via built-in loudspeakers. The entertainment audio signal can be transmitted by radio (broadcast or local plant programmes) or by wire or other communication like Bluetooth. The audio signal transmission is for entertainment and not for safety or work-related purposes. Thus the sound pressure level effective to the ear which is generated by the entertainment audio equipment of the ear-muff has to be limited. This limitation is to be tested and reported at full volume setting. The sound pressure level limit for the reproduced sound of the audio entertainment is set to 82 dB(A). The requirements of the standard are concerned primarily with the entertainment audio performance of the ear-muffs. EN 352-8 is part of a family of standards describing product requirements: — EN 352-1, Hearing protectors — General requirements — Part 1: Earmuffs — EN 352-2, Hearing protectors — General requirements — Part 2: Earplugs — EN 352-3, Hearing protectors — General requirements — Part 3: Earmuffs attached to head protection and/or face protection devices — EN 352-4, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 4: Level-dependent earmuffs — EN 352-5, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 5: Active noise reduction earmuffs — EN 352-6, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 6: Earmuffs with safety-related audio input — EN 352-7, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 7: Level-dependent earplugs — EN 352-8, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 8: Entertainment audio earmuffs — prEN 352-9, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 9: Earplugs with safety-related audio input — prEN 352-10, Hearing protectors — Safety requirements and testing — Part 10: Earplugs with entertainment audio i
