According to the National Institute of Health, noise-induced hearing loss affects 26 million people aged 20 to 69. Could you be next?
The tiny hair cells in the ear, which transmit sounds to the brain, are permanently damaged by noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). These follicles cannot be replaced once damaged. Damaged hair cells cannot communicate with the brain via electrical signals, which is essential for functional hearing.
Extreme noises—such as a nearby gunshot—and frequent or sustained exposure to loud sounds—such as construction equipment—are common causes of damage to hair cells. There is, however, good news: noise-induced hearing loss can be avoided. Wearing hearing protection protects your ears while still allowing you to be aware of your surrounding environment.
Hearing protection that's tailored to your specific needs
As the name implies, custom hearing protection is made to fit your specific ear size and shape. Custom-fit protection provides more protection than over-the-counter earplugs, but they also last far longer and are much more comfortable.
Custom hearing protection has several advantages:
- Better protection: Compared to ordinary earplugs, these are far superior in terms of protection.
- Secure: Because they're custom-made for your ear, these won't slip out as quickly.
- Accuracy: Everything is audible, albeit at a significantly reduced volume.
- Filtering: so that you only hear what you need to hear.
- More comfortable: They remain comfy even after a long time of wearing them.
- Tailored: Select your level of protection and the kind of sounds you want to let through.
We offer custom hearing protection for the following activities:
Swimmers: Water trapped in the ear canal from swimming, diving, or even showering can cause irritation or infection. During your weekly laps, keep your inner ears dry with our swimming earplugs.
Recreational shooters: Using our filtered custom-fit earplugs still allows you to notice the rustling of the leaves. The earplugs activate and reduce the sound to safe levels when you take a shot, so your ears are protected. Indoor gun ranges is another area where they excel.
Musicians: It's easy for musicians to get hearing loss if they keep doing what they love all the time. Whether you're a classically trained violinist or a lead vocalist, we get it when it comes to hearing protection, and our equipment will help protect you no matter what style of music you play.
In-Ear Monitors (IEMs): Musicians utilize In-Ear Monitors (IEMs) to listen to their music while performing on stage. We offer advanced hearing solutions for musicians and stage performers with custom musician earplugs and in-ear musician monitors. With our in-ear impressions for IEMs, we emphasize the sound quality of the music you listen to and provide long-term hearing protection.
You should wear custom-fit hearing protection whenever you are around loud noises, whether at work or play. Get in touch with us today to set up an appointment for your pair.
