Custom Hearing Protection
Your hearing is an incredibly delicate sense that can be easily damaged. Exposure to a single loud noise can cause lifelong hearing loss and even prolonged exposure to environmental noise like fireworks, large trucks, and loud workplaces are enough to cause significant hearing difficulties over time. Luckily, wearing hearing protection consistently during times when you will be exposed to loud noises can go a long way in preventing damage to your auditory system.
When you think of hearing protection, you probably think of large and bulky earmuffs or uncomfortable drugstore earplugs. However, there is actually a wide variety of different options that are comfortable and often virtually unnoticeable. While some types of hearing protection come in an array of sizes, others require your audiologist to take an ear mold impression in order to create a custom earpiece that has been tailor-made for your comfort. At Bay Area Audiology, we offer a wide selection of hearing protection devices, including:
- Musician earplugs
- In-Ear Musician Monitors
- Swim plugs
- Sleep plugs
- Shooting Plugs (active and passive)
- Industrial hearing protection
- Motorcycle plugs
- Custom ear pieces for ear buds
When it comes to hearing protection, you will need to choose an option that is comfortable in order to ensure that you actually use it consistently. After all, if you invest in earplugs that are scratchy and constantly fall out of your ears, will you ever remember to put them in? That is why we offer a variety of customized options. Our professional audiologists will work closely with you to understand how you plan on using your hearing protection device so that we can recommend the ideal solution for your needs.
