As many as 40 million adults under the age of 70 have some form of noise-induced hearing loss. Exposure to noise levels above 85 decibels can damage hearing. And noise-induced hearing loss is completely avoidable. If your work or play environment exposes you to loud noise, even temporarily, let Active Life Hearing fit you with a custom hearing protection product. Custom hearing protection is more comfortable to wear and provides greater protection than off the shelf solutions. Whether you need occupational protection, participate in hobbies with motorized tools or motorsports, or are an amateur musician, you need to wear hearing protection.
Custom earmolds are worn in the outer portion of the ear canal, in the bowl of the ear. They can be full shell or half shell. Full shell devices provide more protection and are worn where decibel levels are higher. Active Life Hearing makes a cast of your ear, a process that is completely painless and sends this cast to the hearing protection manufacturer. An earmold that fits the contours of your ears is made for an exact fit. Some earmolds include attenuators that allow some sound to pass through while blocking out damaging levels of noise.
Custom earplugs are worn in the ear canal. They may be made from soft or hard material. Earplugs not only protect from noise, but they can also provide protection from water and wind. Like custom earmolds, custom earplugs are made from a cast of your ear canal. Small handles or cords make removal easy.
Custom earplugs are also worn by frequent travelers and shift workers to suppress noise exposure and make it easier to get to sleep.
Musician’s earplugs and monitors
Musicians are exposed to loud noise during every practice session and performance, but they need to be able to hear clearly to perform at their best. How do you reduce the decibels to a safe level without distortion? Active Life Hearing has the answer.
Earplugs made specially for musicians reduce the decibel exposure without muffling or distorting the sound. These earplugs are also great for hospitality workers in bars or nightclubs that are exposed to live music.
In-ear musician’s monitors replace the musician’s monitors usually placed on the stage. They deliver sound as the audience hears it, except without amplification.
