A soldier´s senses must be sharp at all times to enable successful operations. Hearing is a critical sensor that provides information when vision is reduced such as darkness and when barriers reduce sightlines.
Noise levels are often so high that they can cause immediate and permanent damage to one´s hearing if proper protection is not worn. He or she must be able to hear incoming radio signals without the risk of revealing the actual location. A snapping twig, footsteps on the other side of a wall or approaching vehicles and aircraft are critical to be heard and located. Communication over the radio must be possible, even in deafening combat situations.
