Hearing Protection

A leading cause of hearing loss is sudden or prolonged exposure to noise. However, once you notice that you may have hearing loss, it’s often too late to protect your hearing. That’s why hearing protection is extremely important, especially if you are regularly in a high-noise environment due to work, hobbies, or both. The Hearing House offers several types of hearing protection for industrial workers and home/hobby use.

Our clients exposed to noises such as lawn mowers, truck engines, motorcycles, garbage trucks, chainsaws, pneumatic drills, jet engines, rock concerts and gunshots benefit from custom earmolds and earplugs for greater protection. 

Custom earplugs 

Earplugs fit in your ear canal. At The Hearing House, we create custom earplugs for our clients that are usually more comfortable than over-the-counter earplugs. Custom earplugs can come with or without handles or detachable cords. Some custom earplugs block all sound while others allow some sound to pass through. You can use custom earplugs to reduce your exposure to loud sounds, such as rock concerts or noisy chores, on the job or for sleeping. Call The Hearing House to find the right solution for you.

Musician earplugs

Musicians need to hear instruments and voices clearly but also need hearing protection from exposure to increased decibels (dB). Because they need earplugs specifically designed for mid to low-frequency protection, custom earplugs are used by many musicians. Musician earplugs are specially produced to avoid the muffled speech and sound that comes from conventional earplugs.  

Musician earplugs come in custom and non-custom options. Ready-fit earplugs reduce harmful sound without distorting speech or music, cutting sound levels by about 20 dB. These earplugs sit deep in the ear canal to reduce occlusion (a hollow or boomy sound). This type of earmold allows for better quality of sound while practicing and performing. 
Musicians aren’t the only ones to benefit from musician earplugs. They’re also an excellent hearing protection option for sound crews, recording engineers, band teachers, concert attendees, disc jockeys, airline personnel, athletes and coaches, referees, motorcyclists, medical professionals and construction workers.

In-ear musician monitors

Musicians performing for large audiences prefer in-ear monitors to clearly hear their music just as the audience hears it while protecting their hearing from loud amplifiers. These monitors work best if they’re custom-fit to each musician, but universal-fit options are available with special tips to allow for a semi-custom fit. The Hearing House has custom-made earmolds and in-ear monitors to fit your unique ear shape.

It’s extremely important that the ear impression used to make an earmold or monitor is of the best quality. Our professionals are highly-trained in this process and know the importance of an excellent fit.
