String of Ears is a legendary belt in Diablo III. It requires character level 29 to drop.

It is a protective belt, known for its highest possible melee damage reduction in the slot, much like Eye of Etlich for ranged damage. Prior to patch 2.1, it also had the normally impossible Life per Hit bonus.
