At The Hearing Solution, we specialize in corrective treatment options for those suffering from varying degrees of hearing loss. One of the best ways to treat hearing loss is to protect the auditory system before damage even occurs.
This is why we offer a range of custom earplugs designed to prevent potential damage to the ears, nerves, and brain that allow you to hear and process sound.
With all of the treatment solutions we provide, each of the custom earplugs featured below is personally designed for you, the wearer.
Custom Noise Plugs
We face an unprecedented amount of noise in our modern lives – from street traffic to rock concerts to construction. Overexposure to these loud sounds is a leading cause of permanent hearing loss.
There are plenty of foam earplugs that you can buy over-the-counter, but these solutions are often uncomfortable, leading to disuse. Worse still, they offer little protection against noise damage since they’re not properly fitted for each user’s unique ear shape.
For optimal protection and comfort, custom-fitted earplugs are a much better option.
At 140 decibels, a typical gunshot is louder than a jet engine. Repeated exposure to this jarring sound can quickly lead to permanent hearing loss. Designed for moderate usage, our custom hunter plugs employ small acoustic filters that automatically close whenever a shot is fired. These filters reduce the decibel range from 140 to just 4, allowing you to still hear game, dogs and fellow hunters.
Gun enthusiasts, law enforcement officials and hunters are all at risk of developing permanent hearing loss whenever they discharge their weapons. Specifically designed for active environments, our custom shooter plugs rely on advanced digital circuitry to immediately reduce sound whenever you pull the trigger. But at all other times, they deliver unrivaled amplification.
Whether you’re a musician, band member or concertgoer, loud noise is a given. The same is true for bartenders, bouncers and anyone else who spends time around live performances. With our custom musician plugs, however, you benefit from interchangeable flat attenuation filters that allow you to hear every note – but at a greatly reduced volume. These musician plugs come with 9, 15, or 25 decibel ratings from their manufacturer, Etymotic Research.
Factory personnel, construction workers and mechanics frequently spend long hours on the job enveloped in noise. Our custom industrial earplugs deliver the ultimate in hearing protection by helping to reduce loud machinery and power tools to a more comfortable range of 40 decibels. If this noise attenuation isn’t sufficient, we also carry custom industrial noise plugs with even lower sound profiles.
Motorcycles, race cars and other recreational vehicles are fun to drive but are inherently dangerous for our ears. You don’t even have to be behind the wheel to be affected. Just visit any racetrack. However, our custom motorsport plugs can help reduce the risk of permanent hearing loss. Comfortable to wear and easy to remove, these plugs even come with hollow canals for under-the-helmet usage and protection from wind noise.
Does your lifestyle include a combination of motorsports, rock concerts, hunting and other “loud” activities? Our custom filtered plugs offer protection across all of the above. With interchangeable filters and 4 levels of noise suppression, these compact designs shield you from potentially damaging decibel levels – while still allowing you to hear the world around you.
Custom Sleep and Swimming Plugs
Excessive noise isn’t the only danger threatening your hearing ability and health. Many swimmers, for example, develop ear infections due to excessive moisture buildup in the canal. Also, insufficient sleep is another factor. But because of work-related stress or a snoring partner – many of us don’t get the recommended amount. Even the slightest noise can disrupt otherwise peaceful sleep.
But these problems disappear when using custom plugs designed to eliminate ear infections or nighttime disruptions.
If you’re a water sports enthusiasts, moisture buildup in the ear canal is inevitable. Our formfitting swim ear molds prevent water from entering the canal, allowing you to enjoy your favorite activities without risking infection. As an added bonus, these custom swimming plugs float and are easy to remove thanks to their convenient finger grips.
Exostosis (i.e. surfer’s ear) and otitis externa (swimmer’s ear) are what you get when exposed to cold water and wind for prolonged periods. With their sealed membranes, our floatable surfer plugs protect your ears by preventing cold air and water from entering the canal. Even when worn in both ears, our custom surfer plugs still allow you to hear conversations around you.
Designed to promote peaceful slumber, our custom sleep plugs are ideal for those who work long hours, suffer from insomnia or share a bedroom with a snorer. Made from soft silicone, these custom sleep plugs deliver the ultimate in comfort, ensuring that you wake up well rested every morning.
Musician’s In-Ear Monitors
For most activities, noise is a byproduct. From motorsports to hunting to industrial manufacturing – no one wants to deal with loud sounds. But for most musicians, “noise” is the goal. And for live performances, the louder – the better.
But this poses 2 problems:
- Excessive noise makes it harder for musicians to hear one another on stage
- Overexposure to loud noises is a leading cause of permanent hearing loss
To overcome both of these challenges, we offer in-ear monitors (IEMs) designed for professional musicians.
Whether you’re a musician, producer or enthusiast, wearing our custom-in-ear monitors can help protect your hearing and prolong your musical enjoyment. Available in several varieties, each of our IEMs is custom-fitted for the wearer before being electronically programmed by lab technicians. If aesthetics are as important to you as music is, we can even bring in graphic artists to stylize each IEM’s exterior however you like.
