Hearing Protection

The world is full of noise that can cause temporary to permanent hearing damage. By using hearing protection, wearers can maintain a comfortable level of sound in a high noise environment. On a personal and professional level, hearing protection offers several benefits. House of Hearing Audiology Clinic visitors can maximize the features of hearing protection by matching it with the correct lifestyle.

Custom Earmolds and Earplugs

A custom-fit is necessary to get the most out any hearing enabled device. Custom earmolds are needed when getting hearing aids. Without it, the user will lack a lot of comfort features that are built with the new device in mind. With a mold, users are ensured the most comfortable fit possible. Earmolds are also useful for wearers with different sized ear canals.

The usefulness of earplug variety jumps between hobbies, professions and personal lifestyles. Each type has a feature that excels at the task it was purchased for. Earplugs come in different shapes, sizes and fits. Generic earplugs work as intended, but lack many of the advanced features of custom fit models.

Musicians Earplugs and Monitors

When an artist is in the studio mixing music, the sound level is off the charts. Musicians’ earplugs are made to shield artists from noise levels without intruding on music quality. The earplug hardware automatically balances low and high notes in real-time. It’s sophisticated, discreet and necessary when working with top tier audio equipment.

When performing live, wedges were used to help the musician hear themselves clearly. It was a necessary tool for concentration but took up a lot of space. In-ear monitors replaced wedges, so the large onstage speaker is no longer required for a good performance. Like regular earplugs, in-ear monitors are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
