Scuba Diver MAG, Australia (June 1999)

A team from SR Services, Israel and Oceanic USA involving engineers, diving physicians, physiologists and instructors has developed a new concept in dive safety and comfort - a system allowing divers to dive and keep their ears dry, warm and protected from the elements of pressure, pollutants, cold water and painful ear infections.

ProEar rnask/ear protectors, are a dry ear diving systern which according to Oceanic, not only protects the ears but enhances underwater hearing and sense of direction. Devised originally as a medical solution for chronic ear problems, the innovation has developed into a new concept for recreational and commercial divers. By protecting the ears, the mask helps avoid ear problems like infection, pain from ear squeeze (easier to equalise with ear protectors) and in extreme cases, vertigo.
