Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Sudden or prolonged exposure to noise can cause damage to your hearing and is one of the leading causes of hearing loss. Hearing loss from prolonged noise exposure is often detected too late, meaning the hearing loss is usually irreversible. However. it is good to remember that noise induced hearing loss is completely preventable!
Hearing protection is extremely important for anyone who is regularly in a high-noise environment, including target shooters, hunting, motorcyclists, pilots, musicians, concert goers, construction workers and factory workers. The truth is that anyone subject to noise exposure may need to wear hearing protection to protect their long-term hearing.
The following noises are especially dangerous with repeat exposure: lawn mowers, truck engines, motorcycles, garbage trucks, chain saws, pneumatic drills, musical concerts, gun shots and jet engines, to name a few.
Though over-the-counter earplugs offer some protection, custom molds offer maximum protection as well as a comfortable fit that is designed specifically for your ears. They offer more security in knowing that your ears have the best possible protection against hearing loss.
Custom molds come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and types. The type of custom mold we recommend will depend on your individual needs. There are many different attenuation options depending on your listening needs. Molds can be made with less attenuation for activities such as sleeping or concert goers and more attenuation for activities such as motorcycling or working in industrial noise. Custom molds are made to fit your ear and are typically more comfortable than non-custom molds. Some types can also be equipped with handles and detachable cords.
Some custom molds come with a filtered attenuator, allowing for verbal communication while still protecting hearing, which is popular with musicians or concert goers and others who work in noisy environments. These types of molds come in both digital and non digital models. There are many digital and non digital custom mold options for hunting and shooting firearms as well. Digital custom hearing protection allows for amplification of low level sounds as well as protection from the sound of gunshots.
Custom molds are not just for those who wish to protect themselves from high noise levels. Custom solutions are also available for other hobbies and activities, such as custom earplugs for swimmers and sleeping.Whatever your unique lifestyle, we have custom solutions to fit your needs.
