|AegisGuard™ Headset Radiation Shields (headset not included) consist of a headset wire and earpiece shield that can be used with any wired headset individually, or combined for maximum shielding effectiveness. |
AegisGuard™ Headset Wire Radiation Shields prevent up to 98% of a cellular or cordless phone's radiation frequencies from being transferred through a headset wire and, when used with an AegisGuard™ Earpiece Radiation Shield, up to 99.9% of the radiation frequencies normally emitted from the earpiece is deflected away from the ear. See Tests for additional information.
AegisGuard™ Headset Wire Radiation Shields
Unlike ferrites, also know as ferrite beads, that provide no protection whatsoever from cell phone radiation, AegisGuard™ Headset Wire Radiation Shields consist of a proprietary metal and ceramic non-magnetic ferrous material tested at frequencies emitted by cellular phones and headsets, plus higher and lower frequencies. They are embodied in a durable nylon housing that clamps over a headset wire above the plug which is inserted into the phone.
AegisGuard™ Headset Wire Radiation Shields fit all cellular and cordless phone headset wires and interact directly with the high frequency energy, suppressing it while allowing the voice signal to pass through to the earpiece unimpeded. They significantly reduce radiation absorption by body organs and into the head via the ear canal, and block up to 98% of a phone's radiation from being transferred through a headset wire without affecting sound quality, power level or battery consumption. Lightweight and easily installed (no tools required), they are also easily removed for transfer to another headset.
|NOTE:||When using an AegisGuard™ Headset Wire Radiation Shield, the radiation remains in the wired or wireless product instead of being transferred through the headset wire. For maximum safety, use an AegisGuard™ Phone Radiation Shield with the front of a cellular phone facing your body, or an AegisGuard™ XP Radiation Shield between the product and your body. |

AegisGuard™ Earpiece Radiation Shields
AegisGuard™ Earpiece Radiation Shields are hypoallergenic and lightweight shielded foam covers that fit over a headset earpiece. The same proven shielding technology that was originally used in AegisGuard™ Phone Radiation Shields is mounted inside the foam and provides up to 99.9% shielding effectiveness at the ear.
This product is easily installed and fits all round EarBud, EarGel and In-The-Ear style earpieces with a diameter up to 13/16 in. (20.5 mm). See AegisGuard™ LS Radiation Shields if your earpiece diameter is larger than this or if your use a wireless headset.
|NOTE:||The outer surface of foam earpiece covers supplied with many headsets wear out over time, as will the outer foam surface of AegisGuard™ Earpiece Radiation Shields. They should be replaced when the outer foam surface begins to wear out. |
