Custom-made Hearing and Ear Protection
Hearing loss and tinnitus prevention are a core part of our services. Exposure to loud noises is one of the main causes of hearing loss and tinnitus in our society.
Our Audiologists are highly skilled at taking precise ear impressions and selecting the appropriate custom-made products such as:
- Noise earplugs
- Musician earplugs
- In-ear monitors
- Earpieces for mobile phones and MP3 players
- Swimmers plugs
Many experts say that the best way to protect your hearing is to be mindful of your listening experience. The best way to protect your ears is to obey “60/60” rule – keeping the volume of a device under 60% of the maximum volume for a maximum of 60 minutes a day.
Please be aware of your surroundings, as you may not even realise just how loud the noise is.An example of this is when you go to the gym. There may be an exercise class, weights clanging together and machines in use. During that time you may be tempted to turn up the music to drown all of that background noise out and focus.
It’s easy to see how anyone can absentmindedly increase the volume too loud. Luckily, there are different options available to help. One is to purchase over-the-ear style headphones that have noise cancelling technology. Another is to invest in custom made ear plugs that block out most noise and allow users to listen to audio at much lower levels.
