Introduction

About Custom Earplugs

Long and repeated exposure to sound above 85 dBA can damage your hearing. Custom earplugs reduce the noise exposure level and the risk of hearing loss. Wearing hearing protection at all times when exposed to loud noise maximizes their effectiveness. If they are only worn part time, or if the protectors do not fit properly, the effectiveness is greatly reduced.

The earplugs you buy from a pharmacy may not be suitable for some people who have more sensitive hearing, small or large ear canals or any ear that has an unusual shape due to birth trauma or surgery. By contrast, a custom molded set will fit comfortably into your ears.

Your choice of custom earplugs can be influenced by several factors including noise level, environment, and comfort. Custom noise protectors yield the best results for reducing noise levels. Our hearing professional are trained to customize hearing protection for their clients. The process involves taking an impression of your ear to make a unique mold that fits your ear perfectly.

Musician Earplugs

A great help for musicians

Musician earplugs are designed for musicians as well as people who like to listen to music at concerts.

Research has shown that enjoying music at a live concert or through loudspeakers can have irreversible effects on your hearing. The safest level of sound for noise exposure is less than 70 dBA. Anything above 85 dBA may require hearing protection, to avoid potential hearing loss. The average sound level at a concert is around 120-129 dBA.

Custom earplugs can protect the musician's or listener's ears from long exposure to loud music, while still allowing you to hear the sound and frequency of the music at a safe and comfortable level. Interchangeable filters are available for varying levels of sound attenuation to suit individual needs.
