Custom Hearing Protection
One of the most common causes of hearing loss is loud noise exposure. One time or regular exposure to excessive noise can lead to noise induced hearing loss. It is estimated that over 30 million people are exposed to hazardous levels of noise daily. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that over 1 billion people globally are at high risk due to recreational exposure to loud noise. Additionally, 22 million people are exposed to hazardous levels of noise in the workplace according to the Hearing Health Foundation. This data highlights the importance of protecting your hearing and mitigating the harm of loud noise. An effective way to do this is by wearing custom hearing protection.
Custom hearing protection offers a physical barrier for the ears, reducing the amount and impact of loud noise that is absorbed. Compared to over the counter hearing protection (earplugs for example), custom options offer maximum protection, personalized sound, and perfect fit. Custom hearing protection is made using molds taken off your ears. This is used to produce tailor made earplugs that are specific to the shape of your ears. There are different types of custom options including everyday earplugs, earplugs made specifically for musicians, and earplugs for navigating loud events or spaces.
Custom hearing protection offers significant benefits. This includes a seamless fit, tailor made to your ears means that they stay in place and are secure as well as comfortable. Also, custom options are designed to deliver accurate sounds but at a safe volume level. This allows you to still navigate different spaces and events while still protecting your hearing. Custom hearing protection is also a sustainable option. Whereas reusable earplugs last 2 to 3 months and disposable earplugs only offer one time use, custom hearing protection lasts from 3 to 5 years. This provides you with long-lasting hearing support and protection that can prevent noise induced hearing loss.
