The HR-1L & HR-2L are medium-weight, noise reduction headphones with a noise reduction rating of 21 dB. The HR-1L is a single-sided headset while the HR-2L is a dual-sided headset. The headsets effectively reduce noise and are suit able for use in moderately noisy environments. All models feature a unique, soft padded headband design that distributes ear cushion pressure evenly over the entire ear with no pressure points, unlike conventional designs which apply more pressure on the bottom of the ear than the top. An added advantage of this design is that the headset folds into an extremely compact shape.
