This document specifies requirements for construction, design, performance, marking and user information for earmuffs attached to head protection and/or face protection devices, hereinafter referred to as ‘mounted earmuffs’.
In particular, it specifies requirements regarding the sound attenuation of mounted earmuffs, measured in accordance with EN ISO 4869-1:2018.
The document does not apply to earmuffs outside the size range of headsizes as defined in this standard.
Because one model of earmuffs designed to be attached to head protection and/or face protection devices can be fitted to a number of other models and sizes of the carrier, this part of the standard sets out a series of physical and acoustic requirements for earmuffs when fitted to the specified model(s) or size(s) of head protection and/or face protection device.
All requirements apply to earmuffs fitted to one of the specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the basic combination). An abbreviated set of requirements applies to the same model of earmuffs when fitted to the other specified models or sizes of head protection and/or face protection device (the supplementary combinations).
Ergonomic aspects are addressed by taking into account, within the requirements, the interaction between the user, the device and, where possible, the working environment in which the device is likely to be used (see Annex ZA and EN 458).

This part of the standard specifies constructional, design and performance requirements, test methods, marking requirements and user information for ear-muffs when fitted to an industrial safety helmet. It calls for information to be made available concerning the sound attenuation characteristics of the ear-muffs measured in  accordance with EN 24869-1:1992, and defines a minimum level of attenuation required for compliance with this specification.  Because one model of ear-muffs designed to be attached to an industrial safety helmet can be fitted to a number of helmet models and sizes; this part of the standard sets out a series of mechanical and acoustic tests intended to assess performance of the ear-muffs when fitted to the specified model(s) or sizes of helmet.  All tests are performed on the ear-muffs fitted to one of the specified models or sizes of helmet (the basic combination), and an abbreviated set of tests is performed  on the same model of ear-muffs when fitted to the other specified models or sizes of helmet (the supplementary combinations).  An alternative protocol is specified which can be applied when a single model of ear-muffs is submitted for testing in combination with a model of safety helmet supplied in more than one size.  For type tests in accordance with this standard, the industrial safety helmets specified by  the ear-muffs manufacturer comply with EN 397:1995. Information on the range of industrial safety helmet types tested with the ear-muffs, and for which the combination satisfied this standard, is supposed to be made available.  This part of the standard does not deal with the performance of electronic devices which can be  incorporated within ear-muffs, or of amplitude sensitive ear-muffs.
