What is PRESAFE® with Pink Noise?

January 29th, 2018 by
Mercedes-Benz drivers get the best of the best, and that includes PRESAFE® with Pink Noise. This safety feature allows your protective reflexes to trigger before an impending collision by delivering a pink noise sound to help protect the inner ear from the damaging noise of the crash. This creates an added level of protection for all drivers and protects the body in ways that other luxury models can’t.

How PRESAFE® with Pink Noise Works

Loud noises from crashes can weaken or damage your ear drum and create hearing loss, but the stapedius muscle helps to protect your ear from damage. With the PRESAFE® with Pink Noise feature, an individual tone goes off seconds before the crash occurs to help trigger the reflex of your stapedius muscle and protect your ear. In most cases, a high-frequency noise must be sounded to protect the ear, but if the energy of the noise is spread out across many tones, it can occur at a lower volume, and that’s how the PRESAFE® function on your Mercedes-Benz E-Class works.

When the sensors on your Mercedes-Benz C-Class notice a crash will occur, it integrated with the vehicle’s multimedia system, and a special sound chip generates pink noise through the sound system. This way, your ear starts to adjust to sound in the proper way and becomes prepared for the higher level of noise that occurs during a collision.
