Members of the United States military were provided a specific type of earplugs to use during combat and training. The earplug manufacturer, 3M, claimed that they would allow soldiers to hear orders from their superiors while also having the ability to block out loud sounds, like explosions. However, a defect in the design of the earplugs allowed these extreme sounds to leak through. As a result, many soldiers experienced hearing loss or tinnitus. There are several thousands of lawsuits in place against 3M regarding these products.
