Earmolds and Ear Plugs
The ability to hear can often be taken for granted. Healthy hearing doesn’t take much effort on our part, but once it’s been lost it’s immense value becomes quickly apparent. As the world has become a very loud place, losing our hearing is easier than ever. Lawn mowers, blow dryers, amplified music, industrial tools, and even just driving in a convertible are among the many common experiences that threaten to slowly erode our ability to hear.
It’s estimated that over 15% of Americans experience Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL), a preventable form of hearing loss caused by exposure to loud noise. Unfortunately this form of hearing loss is irreversible, but custom hearing protection can prevent it from starting in the first place. These custom-fit earmolds are also excellent for keeping the ear canal dry and healthy for all underwater activities. If you’re frequently exposed to loud sounds, custom hearing protection is invaluable for preserving your ability to hear well. While store-bought ear plugs do offer a small degree of noise–dampening, custom earmolds and ear plugs provide significantly more hearing protection by fitting into your ear canal perfectly.
At american Hearing SD we know how hard hearing loss can be. It’s why we’re strong advocates for preventing hearing loss from happening at all. We offer a full array of custom hearing protection to provide you with maximum protection and all-day comfort. These are ideal for:
- Air traffic controllers
- Musicians (Musician In-ear Monitors or IEMs)
- Concert fans
- Industrial & Construction personnel
- Sleep plug users
- Law Enforcement
As the name implies, custom earmolds and ear plugs are made custom to fit the unique contour of your ear canal. If you have trouble getting a comfortable or secure fit with traditional earmolds or ear plugs, custom hearing protection may be for you. They offer the best hearing protection available. Earmolds come in a variety of materials and can be equipped with a fitted attenuator, enabling easy verbal communication while still protecting your hearing from harmful sounds. These types of earmolds tend to be popular with musicians, along with the in-ear-monitors (IEM) we offer.
Don’t wait until it’s too late: Noise Induced Hearing Loss occurs gradually over time and often sneaks up on sufferers. Most cases of it aren’t diagnosed until the hearing loss has progressed significantly. To protect your ability to hear for the years to come be sure to equip yourself with custom hearing protection today.
