Like many things, earplugs come in many different shapes and sizes. Most people are familiar with the standard earplugs that come in a foam material, often squeezed into your ear. They have some effectiveness, because at a minimum they block out a chunk of noise. They can even be useful during sleep, so these type of earplugs definitely have perks. You shouldn’t settle for them though, because custom fitted earplugs can make an enormous difference in how you hear and how safe you can be.
For The Musically Gifted
Depending on your job or passion, custom earplugs can make the world of a difference for you. Loud noise can be harmful to your hearing, and the foam earplugs can work, but they won’t be as effective as a custom pair for this situation. If you’re a sound technician, it’s important that you’re able to safely hear the sounds around you. Foam earplugs may knock out too much noise. Custom fitted pieces will have stronger adjustment capabilities. If you’re a performing musician, custom earplugs are essentially an industry standard. They allow you to block out excess noise and only focus on how you sound.
Foam-fitting, disposable earplugs can easily fall out of your ear. While they’re made to stay in place, the weak material becomes quickly worn out, and they can lead to an uncomfortable feeling. Custom are perfectly fitted to match the shape of your ear, and you can guarantee that it won’t even feel like they’re in your ear.
Custom earplugs have the ability to accept certain frequencies, and it makes for a product that produces much more effective results. The noise won’t be muffled, and you’ll still hear everything, just at a safer rate. Even the smaller background noises will be clearly heard.
