The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been a firm favorite of California drivers since its debut, and it’s no wonder—the latest iteration of the popular line brought a wealth of new technology into the fold. One special new feature you might have missed, though, is one of the most exciting developments in safety technology in quite some time: PRESAFE® Sound. Read on if you want to learn more about this high-tech marvel!

What is PRESAFE® Sound?

While most of the Mercedes-Benz safety tech is designed to help you prevent accidents, PRESAFE® is unique in that it uses technology to help mitigate the damage when a collision is inevitable. Whether it be applying the brakes automatically or tightening the seatbelt at just the right moment, this proprietary safety suite works hard to keep you as safe as possible. PRESAFE® Sound is much the same thing, except it protects something that most other systems forget about: your hearing.

How Does PRESAFE® Sound Work?

Automotive accidents can be incredibly loud, enough so that it can cause everything from temporary deafness to permanent hearing damage. PRESAFE® Sound activates your body’s natural protection system to help lessen its effects. When it senses a collision is imminent, it emits a controlled blast of pink noise, a special frequency that’s been proven to activate your stapedius muscle. When this muscle reflex is activated, it briefly alters the connection between your ear drum and your inner ear, lessening the amount of sound pressure your ear receives and protecting your hearing!
