The best way to prevent hearing loss from occurring in the first place is to protect your ears and your hearing throughout your life, especially when in noisy environments. Hearing protective measures come in different forms but are most thought of as earmolds and earplugs. Both styles of hearing protectors are suitable for individuals with all types of needs, lifestyles and budgets.
Earmolds and earplugs
Earmolds and earplugs are soft and squishy custom-made forms that are made to fit the ear canal. You are most likely familiar with the neon-colored, over-the-counter options available at drug stores and pharmacies. While these options are cost effective and readily available, they don’t often provide a snug fit like custom-made products. The most effective type of hearing protection is custom-made earmolds and earplugs. Earplugs are small and shaped like cones, while earmolds are larger and fill the shell of the outer ear.
SoundGear Hearing Protection
Permanent hearing loss can occur in as little as 15 minutes with exposure to certain sounds and almost instantly with unprotected exposure to sounds generated from firearms, certain power tools, and industrial machinery. At 90 dB of continuous noise, your hearing is susceptible to permanent damage. To put that into perspective, the average impulse noise of a gunshot generates 140 dB of sound.
SoundGear provides immediate, effective protection from the damaging sound of gun blasts, industrial zones, and whatever else life throws your way. Each SoundGear instrument features advanced digital technology capable of enhancing sound 8X over traditional hearing protection products, and uses seamless sound activated compression to trigger instant and automatic suppression of any damaging noise. Now you don’t have to compromise hearing protection or jeopardize communication. With SoundGear, you can enhance both.
Ideal for today’s smartphones, gaming devices, computers and more, SoundGear Tunz Custom Audio Monitors provide unmatched sound quality. Custom-fit to you and your ears, they block out unwanted noise while delivering the ultimate in comfort and crystal-clear sound clarity.
