Hearing Protection

Exposure to noise is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Water in the ears can promote recurring ear infections that result in hearing loss. Whether at work or at play, turn to AA Hearing Aid Center for custom solutions to protect your hearing from noise, wind and water.

Hearing protection options

If you work in a high-noise environment or engage in hobbies such as hunting, shooting and motorsports you put your hearing on the line with each exposure. Proper protection is critical to protecting your hearing. Even lawn mowers, motor engines, chainsaws and other power tools can produce damaging decibels.

Off the shelf earplugs and earmolds may not fit properly or comfortably. Custom earmolds and earplugs solve this problem. AA Hearing Aid Center can provide you with effective, safe and comfortable hearing protection.

Custom earmolds and earplugs

Earmolds are worn in the ear and earplugs are worn in the canal. Earmolds can be full shell and fill the entire ear or half shell and only partially fill the ear. Generally, full shell devices are worn for maximum protection.

Hunters and shooters get protection from earmolds and earplugs that stop gunfire noise from reaching the ear while still allowing ambient noise through for safety. Digital options provide amplification and suppression in one device.
Swimmers and surfers protect their ears from wind and water with custom earplugs that stop water from entering the ear while allowing sound to still be heard. Many models are brightly colored and even float.

Motorsport models can be comfortably worn under your helmet to offer complete protection from engine noise and wind.

Musicians’ earplugs and monitors

Professional and amateur musicians risk their hearing each time they practice or perform. And hearing well is important for a musician. Custom earplugs and monitors made specifically for musicians solve this problem. Off-the-shelf earplugs may protect against noise, but they distort sound and don’t attenuate frequencies evenly.

Specialized musician earplugs provide noise protection without sound distortion. They fit deeply in the ear canal to prevent occlusion, so your voice still sounds natural. In-ear musicians’ monitors are state of the art technology that allows performers to clearly hear the music they create without harmful amplification. These items also protect against audience noise as well.
