Soldiers were supplied with combat earplugs that were designed to protect their ears from harsh noises and damage that occur during combat. The earplugs were found to be defective.


Due to design flaws, the earplugs were inhibited from proper insertion into the users' ears. They could not maintain a tight seal which exposed the soldiers to dangerously loud sounds.


Many soldiers that used the 3M®  Dual-Ended Combat Arms Earplugs Version 2 (CAEv2) reported hearing loss and tinnitus after using them during combat due to faulty design.


3M® agreed to a settlement of $9.1 million to resolve claims that their CAEv2 earplugs caused hearing loss and tinnitus in users.


Claimant awarded $50 million by 3M® for suffering hearing damage after using combat earplugs.

More than 280,000 former and current army veterans suffered from hearing loss and severe tinnitus. 3M® hid design flaws and doctored test results, while also failing to provide proper instructions on how to use the earplugs.
