Earplugs Put Troops at Risk

Combat Arms Earplugs (CAEv2) were standard issue to military service members between 2003 and 2015. The Combat Arms Earplugs were dual-ended and came in a combination of colors; green/yellow or olive/yellow or brown/yellow or yellow/black. If worn with the yellow end inserted, the earplugs were designed to protect against loud impulse noises such as weapons fire but also had a built-in filter that would allow the user to hear low-level sounds such as commands, conversations, footsteps, approaching vehicles and other low-level noises. If worn with the green end inserted, the earplugs were designed to provide protection in situations with high, constant noise levels such as aircraft, armored vehicles, watercraft and machinery.

$9.1 Million Payment Made by Government Contractor

It is also alleged that the manufacturer sold and delivered the ear plugs to the United States knowing that the product contained defects. In July of 2018, a $9.1 million payment was made by a government contractor to settle the claims regarding its sale of the earplugs to the U.S. Military.
