ISO 4869-2:2018 pdf free.Acoustics一Hearing protectors
This document specifies three methods (the octave-band, HML and SNR methods) of estimating the A-weighted sound pressure levels effective when hearing protectors are worn. The methods are applicable to either the sound pressure level or the equivalent continuous sound pressure level of the noise. Although primarily intended for steady noise exposures, the methods are also applicable to noises containing impulsive components. It is possible that these methods could not be suitable for use with peak sound pressure level measurements.
The octave-band, H, M, L or SNR values are suitable for establishing sound attenuation criteria for selecting or comparing hearing protectors, and/or setting minimum acceptable sound attenuation requirements.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO 4869-1 and the following apply.
ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardization at the following addresses:
– ISO Online browsing platform: available at https://www.iso.org/obp
– IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.org/
This value is rounded to the nearest integer. It can then be stated that the effective A-weighted sound pressure level will be less than or equal to 82 dB for 84 % of the individuals when the hearing protector is properly worn by various people in this noise environment.
The calculation example shown here is provided via an Excel-sheet at standardsiso.org/iso/4869/-2/ed:2/en as well, by which the user may carry out own calculations.ISO 4869-2 pdf download.
