It’s estimated that over 15% of Americans experience Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), a preventable form of hearing loss caused by exposure to loud noise. Unfortunately, this form of hearing loss is irreversible, but custom hearing protection can prevent it from starting in the first place.
You don’t have to be exposed to noises that physically hurt for them to be damaging. A wide range of common sounds can lead to noise induced hearing loss, including gunshots, chain saws, lawn mowers, city traffic, garbage trucks, and more. Store-bought ear plugs can help to dampen some of the noise, but they are not designed to provide the level of protection that our delicate ear drums truly need.
Thankfully, custom made ear plugs and earmolds are an easy solution to noise prevention and are manufactured in a wide range of styles to meet your individual needs. These custom-fit earmolds are also excellent for keeping the ear canal dry and healthy for all underwater activities. Custom hearing protection is ideal for:
- Concert fans
- Industrial & construction personnel
- Sleep plug users
- Air traffic controllers
- Musicians (Musician In-ear Monitors or IEMs)
- Law enforcement
As the name implies, custom earmolds and ear plugs are made custom to fit the unique contour of your ear canal. If you have trouble getting a comfortable or secure fit with traditional earmolds or ear plugs, custom hearing protection may be for you. They offer some of the best hearing protection available. Earmolds come in a variety of materials and can be equipped with a fitted attenuator, enabling easy verbal communication while still protecting your hearing from harmful sounds. These types of earmolds tend to be popular with musicians, along with the in-ear-monitors (IEM) we offer.
We only get one set of ears, and although hearing aids can perform some incredible feats, the best plan of action is to actively work to preserve your natural hearing ability.
