Exposure to loud sounds causes noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL), affecting one or both ears. The louder the sound, the less time it takes to cause permanent hearing damage.
Hearing protection is critical to protect your hearing abilities when in noisy situations. Learn more below about the types of hearing protection offered by our practice.
Protection produced from an impression of your ear is known as custom hearing protection. This means you'll receive a fit unique to your ear.
While both custom hearing aids and store-bought earplugs lower noise and protect the ears, custom earplugs are significantly more comfortable, suppress sound more effectively, and cost you and the environment far less in the long term.
Hearing protection for hunters
Hearing protection for hunters allows you to hear the faint sounds you need to hunt while rapidly and automatically covering your ears from loud bursts of sound.
Hearing protection for musicians
It is equally critical to protect your valuable hearing if you regularly attend concerts and live music events. These devices will allow you to enjoy all music frequencies while also safeguarding you from harm.
Infections and Swimmer's Ear can be a problem if you're a swimmer. Hearing protection for swimmers is designed to ensure that you enjoy the water without experiencing any discomfort or pain in your ears.
Hearing protection for loud work environments
Custom filters can help keep employees' hearing safe while still allowing them to communicate and be aware of their surroundings.
Whether you're exposed to noise at work or play, protecting your ears with custom-fit hearing protection is always a good idea. To learn more about our ear impression services, contact us today.
