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.
Although this form of hearing loss is irreversible, custom hearing protection can prevent it from starting in the first place.
Many individuals often don’t think about how complex the hearing process is, but once we begin to lose some of our hearing, we quickly realize how delicate our ears are. Hearing loss can creep up on you and in the instance of noise-induced hearing loss, an impairment caused by exposure to loud sounds, the damage can be permanent. That’s why at Audiology Services & Hearing Aid Center we are strong advocates for preserving your healthy hearing and preventing hearing loss before it begins.
Custom Hearing Protection
We understand how imperative hearing protection is, especially for those working (or playing) in noisy environments. This is why we not only offer hearing loss solutions, but also solutions to protect the hearing you currently have!
Custom hearing protection is ideal for:
Common noises that can cause noise-induced hearing loss:
These seemingly different sounds all have one thing common – they can cause hearing loss after repeated exposure.
A wide range of common sounds can lead to noise-induced hearing loss, including gunshots, chain saws, lawn mowers, city traffic, garbage trucks, and more. Store-bought ear plugs can help to dampen some of the noise, but they are not designed to provide the level of protection that our delicate ear drums truly need.
Thankfully, custom-made ear plugs and earmolds are an easy solution to noise prevention and are manufactured in a wide range of styles to meet your individual needs. Our ears are as differently shaped as the nose on our faces! A custom-fit earmold can make a big difference when blocking out sounds or in hearing more clearly for those who wear hearing aids.
Are you a musician? Custom ear molds or musician plugs are a great way to comfortably protect your hearing – while allowing you to enjoy the sounds you want to hear. For musicians, we offer custom impressions for in-ear-monitors and musicians’ earplugs.
Are you a swimmer? We also offer swim plugs to protect against bacteria growth and water damage associated with swimming in pools or lakes.
