Howard Leight

Leight is the founder of Howard Leight Industries. The company is active in in-ear hearing protection. For over 30 years, Howard Leight has pursued the prevention of occupational hearing loss through innovation in hearing protection design, technology, performance and comfort, and the promotion of progressive Hearing Conservation Programs. Leading solutions include the Max® single-use ear plug; patented Air Flow Control™ technology for optimal earmuff attenuation; QuietDose™ personal in-ear dosimetry; and the industry-changing VeriPRO® ear plug fit testing system.

Nowaydays the company is part of the Honeywell Group. Howard Leight became a succesfull investor. His net worth is rumored to be around US$ 1 billion.
