Hearing Protection & Musicians' Ear Pieces

Hearing Protection

Protecting your hearing from harmful noise is important to preserving your hearing clarity. The majority of people who experience a loss in hearing clarity have that loss because they have not effectively protected their ears—this is called "Noise Induced Hearing Loss". Everyday noise that can harm your ears includes:

  • power tools, chainsaws, woodworking equipment
  • lawnmowers
  • construction or industrial equipment
  • firearms
  • recreational noise - motorcycles, speedboats

To protect your ears, wear earplugs or earmuffs.

 

Custom Ear Plugs

For extra comfort and protection, we can provide you with custom earplugs that will conform specifically to your ear canals and can be customized to provide you with the right protection for specific noise environments. Hunters earplugs (shown above right) feature a valve that closes in the presence of impact noise. This allows shooters to hear clearly until the weapon is fired and still have some hearing protection from the gunfire. Other specialty custom ear plugs include those for pilots, motorcyclists, military personnel and more.

Custom Swim Molds

These custom molds help reduce the amount of water that enters into the outer ear canal. This type of mold may be recommended for patients with external or middle ear precautions or tubes in the ear drum. These molds are recommended for swimmers and surfers as well.

 

Custom Musicians' Ear Pieces

For active people who love their music and want to upgrade from the ear buds or head phones that they already use with their iPod or MP3 player Custom Musicians' Ear Pieces or Ear Buds offer a clear, custom listening experience.

They fit comfortably and their sound quality is outstanding.
