Routine exposure to loud noises and moisture can cause irreversible damage to your ears. Custom earplugs provide individuals with a superior fit and seal that standard earplugs cannot offer. With a mold explicitly designed for you and your lifestyle, you can protect your ears from unnecessary harm.
Who Needs Custom Earplugs
Anyone whose work or lifestyle choices expose them to more than 5 hours of loud noise should invest in custom earplugs. Many musicians and factory workers experience noise at a high-volume for extended periods of time that could cause irreversible damage to their ears.
A great rule of thumb is to ask yourself whether or not you have trouble hearing a "normal" tone of voice (40 to 60 dB) from an individual who is an arms distance away. If you answered yes, then earplugs would safeguard you from noise exposure that could lead to hearing loss.
Additionally, athletes who experience a lot of moisture in the ear such as swimmers would benefit from custom earplugs. Without proper protection, excess water could cause an infection or lead to painful swelling and blockage of the ear canal.
Benefits of Custom Ear Plugs
- Personalized Fit
The ear canal shape varies from person-to-person and that’s where standard earplugs come up short. Custom earplugs are molded to each ear to provide the wearer with a superior level of comfort.
- Customized for Lifestyle
From swimmers to musicians, many individuals will benefit from the use of molded earplugs. Different materials are available to provide you with the convenience and protection you need to suit your lifestyle.
- Better Sound Manipulation
Most earplugs bought in-store come in standard sizes which make it harder to fit and as a result distort the music. Molded earplugs are shaped to provide better sound quality that is not muffled or altered.
- Secure Fit
Custom earplugs last longer since you do not have to force them to stay inside your ear. The limited size range of standard earplugs makes the end use a little more challenging. Molded earplugs provide a perfect fit that won’t slip or fall out.
- Safe for Sensitive Skin
For anyone who worries about allergies, you can design your earplugs with specific materials that are hypoallergenic. Additionally, anyone with delicate skin might eliminate treatments or coatings that might be too abrasive.
- Customizable Look
With the advancement of technology, improvements have been made to the appearance of earplugs. Different colors and materials are available to make the design process flexible to your needs. Mixing and matching give you more control of the final product.
