EARPLUGS

HEARING PROTECTION CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR NEEDS

Why should you consider custom ear plugs?

Why should you consider

custom ear plugs?

Your hearing is a precious resource. Sensorineural hearing loss, once present, is permanent. If you are exposed to high levels of sound either at work or through hobbies such as music production, concert going, firearm practice, or construction (not a complete list) – it is highly recommend that you protect your ears. Standard “sound protection” sold over the counter such as foam ear plugs are often not ideal for a number of reasons:

I

The protection afforded is limited to certain frequencies of sound. The nature of the material decreases it’s effectiveness.

I

Often the user does not “properly” insert the over the conter ear plug, which limits the amount of noise reduction

I

They are “one size fits most”, and don’t offer a complete seal in ears post-surgery, or hard to fit ear canals

What to expect at an earplug appointment

You will be scheduled with one of our audiologists.  The audiologist will discuss your needs, whether that is occupational noise reduction, recreational such as concerts, or motorcycle riding, protecting your ears from water, or even if you are looking for a way to get a better night’s rest with noise reduction.  We have options for you!
The audiologist will take a look in your ears (Otoscopy) to ensure your ear canals and outer ear area is healthy.  The audiologist will then place a cotton or foam block in your ear, followed by a silicone material that will harden in 3-5 minutes.  Typical earmold orders take around 7-10 days to arrive.

TYPES OF EAR PLUGS

SOLID HEAR PLUGS

Solid ear plugs are the standard in custom ear plugs.  They support the user in a variety of noisy environments including occupational, recreational firearm use, or power tool use.  The solid ear plug has many color and style options to fit your needs.  You should speak with your audiologist about your purpose for obtaining ear plugs. The audiologist will work with you to determine the options to fit your lifestyle.

MUSICIAN PLUGS

Our preferred sound protection device is known as “musician’s ear plugs”. This is an equal frequency reduction method, allowing excellent safety without a compromise in sound quality.  These ear plugs are great for recreational musicians, concert enthusiasts, or gym class attendee (those spin classes are loud!)

These are custom molded to your ear canal by our audiologists. Please specify your interest in this product when you call.

SLEEP EAR PLUGS

If you are disrupted by sound while you sleep, this is an excellent choice for you.  Sleep ear plugs are made of a soft, comfortable material.  They completely seal your ear canal to reduce as much ambient noise as possible to enhance your sleep.

SWIMMING EAR PLUGS

Many people wear ear plugs when swimming.  Ear plug use is important if you experience recurrent ear infections, have a history of outer or middle ear issues, or recently underwent ear surgery.  Additionally, some people find it more comfortable to swim with ear plugs as they do not like the feeling of water in their ears.  Swimming ear plugs are made from a floatable material, and come in a variety of fun colors!
