Although this form of hearing loss is irreversible, custom hearing protection can prevent it from starting in the first place.
These three seemingly different situations all have one thing common – they can cause hearing loss after repeated exposure.
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 Audiologic Solutions we are strong advocates for preserving your healthy hearing and preventing hearing loss before it begins.
Custom musician’s hearing protection features an individually calibrated filter (9, 15 or 25dB), designed to accommodate all frequencies at the same level. Unlike solid hearing protection which reduces all frequencies differently, these filtered ear plugs give a flat attenuation across the frequency range. This allows you hear sounds accurately, but at a safe and comfortable level with more natural sound quality.
Musician’s plugs are ideal for musicians or concert goers who want to be protected from loud music exposure, but still hear the true sound and frequency range of the music and instrument(s). ER hearing protection is custom-made and fit comfortably in the ear canal to give the best attenuation for long time use.
The best method for protecting your hearing and ear health in noisy and unfavorable environments is by using adequate hearing protection. In addition to preventing noise induced hearing loss, hearing protection can help prevent the development of tinnitus. Audiologic Solutions offers a wide range of custom and standard hearing protection devices for every need, whether you are a musician, construction worker, concert goer, or enjoy recreational activities.
In-Ear Monitors are devices used by musicians, audio engineers and audiophiles to listen to music or to hear a personal mix of vocals and stage instrumentation for live performance or recording studio mixing. IEMs Musician’s Earplugs are available in a custom or universal fit. These reduce sound levels to your ear while maintaining a more natural sound quality when compared to traditional earplugs. Different levels of filtering accommodate different listening needs. We are proud to offer custom monitors from Ultimate Ears and Westone.
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.
