Hearing Protection and Musicians' Ear Plugs
Sudden or prolonged exposure to loud noise can damage your hearing. Hearing protection is extremely important for anyone who is regularly in a high-noise environment; including construction workers, factory workers, target shooters, motorcyclists and musicians. In addition, hearing protection should also be worn when around lawn mowers, loud engines, power tools, rock concerts and other loud noises.
You can purchase universal “one size fits all” noise protection at many stores, but custom noise plugs offer maximum protection and a comfortable fit that is designed specifically for your ears.
There are special musicians’ ear plugs for those who play instruments or are around loud music. They attenuate the overall sound by a certain amount of decibels while allowing the range of frequencies to filter through so you hear all the parts of the music. You can choose what filter you want in the ear plugs depending on your specific needs.
If you have a need for hearing protection or musicians’ plugs, impressions will be taken of your ears. The impressions will be sent to the ear mold lab. You should receive them in approximately two weeks.
