Driving with the top down. Blow dryers. Jazz concerts. City traffic. Fireworks. They’re all loud enough to cause permanent hearing loss. It’s a noisy world we live in and selecting the most effective form of hearing protection is a choice you’ll never regret.
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 are frequently exposed to loud sounds, custom hearing protection is invaluable for preserving your ability to hear well. The following noises are especially dangerous with repeat exposure: lawn mowers, truck engines, motorcycles, garbage trucks, chain saws, power tools, rock concerts, gunshots, and jet engines, to name a few. 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.
