DIFFERENT PROCEDURES FOR DETERMINING R VALUE

Seven different procedures for determining the "R" value of personal hearing protectors were evaluated using 262 different noise spectra and four different hearing protectors, ranging in performance from very good to poor. There was considerable variation among procedures resulting from differences in noise spectra and protector attenuation patterns.
