Custom Hearing Protection
Excessive noise exposure is one of the leading causes of hearing loss and tinnitus (ringing in the ears). Custom ear molds can be used to reduce the detrimental effects that loud noise has on your hearing, as well as provide protection from noise-induced hearing loss. Custom pieces can be used for industrial noise protection, or to cut down on noise from motor sports, loud music, and other recreational activities.
Swim molds are the perfect solution for children or adults with pressure equalization tubes or chronic ear disease, and must keep water out of their ears to avoid ear infections. Custom swim molds provide a tight but comfortable fit that helps prevent water from getting into the ear. These swim molds can be made in the office and taken home the very same day.
Musician’s Ear molds
Musician’s ear molds replicate the natural response of the ear canal to maintain the same quality as the original sound, but quieter. Musicians practice and perform in various settings where they are exposed to high levels of sound, typically for long periods. This noise exposure can cause permanent hearing loss. Musicians require different amounts of protection depending on the sound levels they encounter during rehearsals and performances. Custom musician’s ear molds come with different filters for different amounts of noise reduction. Where conventional ear molds muffle speech and music, musicians’ ear pieces provide a natural sound at a safe listening level.
