Sounds and noises are everywhere in our daily lives, from leisure activities to concerts, motorsport events, work, travelling and many more! Sudden or prolonged exposure to noise can cause permanent damage to your hearing which can result to irreversible hearing loss. While hearing loss is irreversible, that does not mean it is not preventable. Having hearing protection available for various occasions are essential to keep our ears healthy and prevent hearing loss. Particularly, anyone subject to noise exposure may need to wear hearing protection to protect their long-term hearing. This is extremely important for anyone who is regularly in a high-noise environment.
Hearing protection has both generic ear plugs and custom fit ear plugs. Custom fit ear plug is made of medical-grade silicone and designed specifically for your ear. It offers a comfortable fit and can be worn for extended periods of time without discomfort.
At iHear, we offer a wide range of hearing protection for various types of occasions, ranging from in-ear monitors for musicians to ear plugs for sleeping. We also offer hearing protection which helps when you are in loud environments - such as hunting or riding a motorcycle. Even if you are a recreational swimmer, custom hearing protections can be used to help prevent water from getting into the ears.
Sleeping ear plugs: sleep is an essential function that allows your body and mind to recharge. Healthy sleep helps to boost your immune system and stave off diseases such as depression, brain disorder, and heart disease. Many studies showed that the common barrier to healthy sleep is noise disturbance. Sleeping ear plugs can help drown out ambient noise to ensure quality sleep.
Swimming ear plugs: swimming ear plugs are custom made of waterproof silicone which creates an impenetrable seal to help preventing water from entering into the ear canals. It is also useful for someone have tympanic membrane perforation or chronic otitis media (ear infection).
Musician ear plugs: musicians have unique needs when it comes to hearing protection. They need to be able to hear their own music and voices clearly during the performance, while protecting their hearing at the same time. Unlike traditional ear plugs that block out noise, resulting in music and speech is muffled and distorted, musician ear plugs attenuate sounds evenly across the entire frequency range. This keeps the original quality of the music intact and allows musicians to hear their own instruments clearly.
High impulse noise ear plugs: high level noise exposure is one of the biggest threats to your hearing. High impulse noise ear plugs provide optimum protection from the peak sound pressure level such as gun shots, explosions, fireworks, etc. When no sound peaks are present, high impulse noise ear plugs provide a low attenuation. This facilitates situational awareness and enables the hearing ability to carry on with normal conversations, while being protected from high level noises.
The audiologists at iHear cannot stress enough that protecting your hearing is an important part of keeping your ears healthy and preventing hearing loss. By using hearing protection, you can help prevent future hearing complications.
