Hearing Protection

Wearing hearing protection prevents noise induced hearing loss from becoming a serious problem. It works as a beneficial accessory for work, hobbies or any activity where noise levels are a concern. The Hearing Aid Place is a great environment to learn about improving ear protection with minimal effort. Hearing protection is nonintrusive, and can be used with other types of noise protection.

Types of hearing protection

Earplugs, semi-earplugs and earmuffs are the main types of hearing protection. Earmuffs and semi-earplugs are available in generic variants. Earmuffs go over the ear to provide full protection in professional settings like a music studio or at the airport. They lack the portability of semi-earplugs, but are much better equipped to handle high levels of noise.

Semi-earplugs provide portability but sacrifices a bit of protection to give more comfort. Users that find regular earplugs or earmuffs uncomfortable will be more at ease with semi-earplugs. Earplugs are the most versatile of the lot, and can be purchased as generic or as a fully customized model. Higher tier version of earplugs has specialized features that are comparable to modern hearing aids.

Musicians earplugs and monitors

Creating music in the studio is difficult with degraded hearing abilities. Musicians earplugs protects an artist’s most important sense by nullifying harmful tones. This is done with hardware that normalizes the lows and highs of all music tracks. The earplugs help the artist without interfering with the quality or spirit of the tracks.

Performing live comes with its own set of hearing dangers. In ear monitors were created as a replacement for wedges. Like musicians’ earplugs, in ear monitors help artists hear the music in the most optimized way possible. Instead of having large speakers taking up stage space, small mics rest in the canal of the musician. This saves space, and offers a better experience for everyone in attendance.

Earmolds and earplugs

Custom earmolds and earplugs provide better individual protection than their generic counterparts. Custom earmolds are made to fit the shape of the ear, while custom earplugs are shaped for the canal. They are specially made for the individual that requests them, so will be comfortable to wear for extended periods of time. Depending on the model, earmolds and earplugs have features that prioritize hobbies, professions and skillsets.
