None. They are not designed for hearing protection. New noise-cancelling earbuds and headphones are designed to block unwanted ambient sounds using active noise control for low frequency sound and using soundproofing for higher frequency sound. They are not effective for controlling occupational noise exposure.

OSHA requires employers to implement a hearing conservation program when noise exposure is at or above 85 decibels averaged over 8 working hours, or an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA).

What is the safe noise level for 8 hours?
