The Uses and Benefits of Custom Earmolds and Earplugs

Sudden or prolonged exposure to loud noises is one of the leading causes of hearing loss. Because this type of hearing loss is often detected too late, the effects may sometimes be irreversible. That’s why hearing protection is extremely important for anyone who is in a high-noise environment on a regular basis. This includes target shooters, motorcyclists, airline pilots, musicians, construction workers, and factory workers.

Even if long-term exposure isn’t an issue, repeat exposure to certain noises may cause extensive damage. Lawnmowers, truck engines, motorcycles, garbage trucks, chain saws, pneumatic drills, rock concerts, gunshots, and jet engines are just a few of the harmful noises from which our custom devices can help protect your ears.

Although store-bought devices do offer some protection, custom earmolds and earplugs provide maximum protection and a comfortable fit that is specifically designed for your ears.

Earplugs are devices that are usually used for the ear canal. Some are solid, while others allow for more sound to pass through. This includes specialized earplugs that are available for musicians and medical professionals who still want the ability to hear most of their surroundings while protecting their hearing.

Our specialty earplugs can be custom fit for your ear canal and are usually more comfortable than traditional earplugs. They can be made with or without handles or detachable cords. Not only are earplugs suitable for those who wish to protect themselves from high noise levels, but these custom solutions are also available for other uses, such as swimming.

Our custom earmolds come in a wide variety of sizes and types, including solid, soft, and spongy. The most popular styles are full-shell and half-shell. Full-shell earmolds are generally used for high-level noise exposure, while half-shell devices are made for mid-level noise exposure.

Musicians tend to utilize earmolds that come with filtered attenuators, because they allow for verbal communication, while still protecting their hearing. These particular devices come in both electronic and non-electronic models. We also offer options that are made to fit over certain earbud headphones and under pilot boom-mic headsets, as well as a variety of other special uses.

If you work in a high-noise environment or you are exposed to loud noises on a consistent basis, it’s important that you have regular appointments to check for early indications of hearing loss. Whether you are looking to preserve and protect your current hearing level or prevent hearing loss altogether, Inland Hearing Aids, Inc offers custom earmold and earplug solutions to fit your needs.
