After 2003, till 2015, The U.S military provided the militants, standard combat arms earplugs, version 2 (CAEv2), manufactured by 3M company. Shortly after this, the military personnel felt that not only were these earplugs useless as they were defective, but actually caused permanent hearing loss or hearing issues. However it is now known that these faulty earplugs were deliberately supplied by the company. Basically these dual-ended 3M combat earplugs were green on one side and yellow on the other, each color representing a range of noise protection for the militant. But the primary function of these earplugs was not met as they were very short and they could also loosen, when being used on the field. These defects caused hearing loss/tinnitus as military personnel were exposed to damaging noise levels. In response, the False Claims Act Lawsuit was filed that accused 3M for selling faulty earplugs to United States military. Under the final verdict, 3M Company was entitled to pay $9.1 million as the settlement amount. As a matter of fact, the 3M combat earplugs lawsuit in Los Angeles at COWPER LAW directly compensates the military personnel, who have been injured by the use of these earplugs. The 3M combat earplugs were extensively used by combat veterans, reserve members and militants of Navy and Air Force.
