Sudden or prolonged exposure to noise can cause damage to your hearing and is one of the main causes of hearing loss. Hearing loss from prolonged noise exposure is often detected too late and the hearing loss is usually irreversible.
Hearing protection is extremely important for anyone who is regularly in a high-noise environment, including carpenters, chainsaw operators, motorcyclists, pilots, musicians, construction workers and factory workers. The truth is that anyone subject to noise exposure may need to wear hearing protection to protect their long-term hearing.
The following noises are especially dangerous with repeat exposure: lawn mowers, motorcycles, trucks, chainsaws, pneumatic drills, rock concerts and jet engines.
Though store or online bought plugs offer some protection, custom made ones offer maximum protection and a comfortable fit that is designed specifically for your ears. They offer more security in knowing that your ears have the best possible protection against hearing loss.
Earmoulds come in a wide variety of sizes and types. Some are solid, and some are soft or spongy. The most popular styles are full shell and half shell. Full shell earmoulds are generally for high-level noise exposure, while half shell are for mid-level noise exposure. The type our audiologist recommends will depend on your individual needs.
Some come with a filtered attenuator, allowing for verbal communication while still protecting hearing, which is popular with musicians. These types come in both electronic and non-electronic models. Earmoulds are also popular for fitting over certain earbud headphones, under pilot boom-mic headsets, and other specialty uses.
As the name implies, they are made custom to fit the unique contour of your ear. If you cannot get a comfortable or secure fit with traditional earplugs, custom earmoulds may be for you. They offer some of the best hearing protection available.
Earplugs are hearing protection that are usually for the canal only. Some are solid, while others allow for more sound to pass through. Specialised earplugs are available for musicians and medical professionals who still want the ability to hear most of their surroundings while protecting their hearing.
Specialty earplugs can be custom fit for your ear canal, and are usually more comfortable than traditional earplugs. Custom earplugs come both with or without handles or detachable cords.
