Noisefighters SightLines Gel Ear Pads For Earmuffs
Noisefighters SightLines Gel Ear Pads Features:
- Bottom line: these are upgraded gel ear pads that are the first with relief cuts for glasses to pass through without breaking the seal and causing headaches.
- Noisefighter's latest design features a rim to slide under the clips on headsets like Impact® Sport and a non-permanent, pressure-sensitive adhesive for a much more secure fit and peel + stick compatibility with snap-in plastic adapter plates (available separately) to fit headsets from dozens of manufacturers.
- Best results with straight-style glasses arms, and our super-soft silicone gel produces an amazing seal with other types of glasses arms.
- Our unique horseshoe-ring shaped double-hump front face and 1/4" inch of silicone gel provide significantly better softness and sealing vs. competitors' pads.
- When headset is lowered as much as possible, glasses temples arms can be dropped into relief cuts and will sit in a protected channel just above the ear. Using the relief cuts is completely optional. Our gel pads also work like normal without glasses.
- Use of super-premium acoustic memory foam and a closed head seal leads to impressively better sound deadening that is immediately noticeable to even the most casual user.
- Designed by a Marine Corps combat veteran, made in the USA, and designed for use in any climate. Polyurethane outer skin is UV-resistant, waterproof, and much longer-lasting than vinyl used on cheap pads. These gel pads are tough. Plus, Noisefighter's warranty their pads for an entire year, regardless of what continent or climate you operate in.
This is a replacement set of two (2), premium, gel-filled, adhesive-back SightLines ear cushions. You can also add optional adapter plates, which accommodate additional earmuff brands & models to your order.
Please carefully inspect the lists below regarding compatibility so that you can order correctly. Some earmuff brands will require adapter plates.
This model is fully compatible with many Howard Leight, Peltor, and Ops-Core headsets without any adapter plates. The adhesive is non-permanent and pads can be removed dozens of times, or even swapped between headsets, without degrading the bonding strength. We use the same type of adhesive that is used on military headsets to hold pads in place. There is an outer lip on this pad that slides under the Howard Leight headset retaining clips and provides a secondary method to secure the pads.
This model is compatible with any headset that utilizes pads that are 4" tall x 3" wide and allow users to peel off / remove their original pads and apply new adhesive-backed pads.

Why use SightLines Ear Cushions?
Earmuffs that use traditional cushions rely on the softness of the ear cushion to conform to the shape of the eyewear stems. However, whenever eyewear is inserted, even the softest cushions unevenly distribute pressure around the ear, cause hot spots which then lead to headaches, and allow unwanted noise through the broken head seal.
By adding a recessed channel, or relief cut, at the top of the cushion for eyewear to slide along, the head seal can remain intact instead of being forced open when eyewear is inserted. SightLines is an extremely simple and inexpensive solution. SightLines headset cushions replace your existing ones and install in seconds.
The only change you'll need to make when wearing a headset with SightLines is to first slide your eyewear above the cushions and then move them down into the recessed upper channel and onto the shelf. The shelf is less than one pinky finger's thickness above the location where glasses normally rest, and it feels completely natural for eyewear to sit at this location. These cushions are fully compatible with prescription eyewear, including multi-focal lenses.
Eyewear no longer causes hot spots around the ears. In addition, the unique horseshoe ring design and use of silicone gel and memory foam softens the cushion so much that compression is significantly reduced, pressure is better equalized across a larger surface area, and eyewear won't sit crookedly. It's like wearing pillows on your head. Our cushions are also quite roomy, so ears won't feel cramped. You can wear them all day with or without eyewear, with no change in comfort. You won't ever want to wear normal headset cushions again.
Government testing has shown a 1-10dB decrease in sound deadening when eyewear breaks the head seal on traditional ear cushions. This is a serious safety issue as a 3 dB increase represents a doubling of sound intensity. We believe SightLines solves this completely by keeping the head seal closed when eyewear is inserted correctly.
A broken head seal permits significantly more noise into the headset, and this isn't just a safety issue: it is detrimental to proper monitoring for audio professionals and it's annoying for anyone who wants to keep undesirable noise out when wearing eyewear (like an airline passenger using noise-cancelling headphones or a pilot trying to monitor incoming traffic). Again, we believe SightLines solves this completely by keeping the head seal closed when eyewear is inserted correctly.
Materials and Durability:
SightLines cushions are manufactured with only premium components. They are designed to survive in nearly every environment on earth. SightLines was designed by military veterans, who understand that gear dependability is crucial.
Internally, both silicone gel and sound-deadening memory foam provide the ultimate in softness. The silicone gel's flexibility is amazingly similar from -100F to +300F (-70C to 150C). The sound-deadening memory foam meets FAR 25.853 for U.S. aviation use.
Externally, an ultra-thin sheet of rugged polyurethane provides a supple outer skin. The polymer skin is resistant to UV rays, has anti-fungal properties, and does not absorb moisture and quickly degrade like cheaper materials.
SightLines should last for several years of normal use instead of degrading quickly like faux leather or vinyl pads. Be sure to hand wash our cushions with soap and water as necessary. It is not recommended that you submerge the headset cushions in water.
Noisefighters SightLines Gel Ear Pads are designed by a U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran, patent pending and made in the USA.
