Irreversible hearing damage can happen easier than one might think, as nearly 15% of Americans suffer from noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). While it’s completely preventable by using custom ear protection, it’s also irreversible. At Sonus Hearing Care Professionals, we offer custom-fit earmolds and ear plugs which work well for underwater activities as well as loud environments.
Common sounds like chain saws, rock concerts, garbage trucks, and power tools can all cause a strain to the delicate parts of your ears. Store-bought ear plugs do offer a nominal amount of protection, but a custom-made earmold or ear plug fits your unique ear canal to provide complete protection. Since we know how difficult it can be to live with hearing loss, we place a strong emphasis on prevention. Our custom hearing solutions can be beneficial for:
- Concert fans
- Industrial & Construction personnel
- Sleep plug users
- Air traffic controllers
- Musicians (Musician In-ear Monitors or IEMs)
- Law Enforcement
If you’re interested in custom hearing protection, contact our office today. Our audiologists can discuss the best options for your lifestyle and will ensure that you receive a comfortable and protective device that will help preserve your hearing. Individuals who have previously had trouble with traditional earmolds or ear plugs will appreciate the options we have available, including fitted attenuators and a variety of materials to choose from.
Noise induced hearing loss may not be noticeable until it’s too late and most cases of it aren’t diagnosed until the hearing loss has progressed significantly. Find out how custom ear protection from Sonus can help protect and preserve your hearing for years to come!
