Custom Ear Protection in Phoenix, AZ
Our ears are always on, giving us a sense of the world around us. As a result, there are many ways we are damaging our hearing without even knowing it. Hearing loss occurs to anyone, at any age, and its effects are irreversible. Custom ear protection can be used in all areas of your life and offers defense against exposure to hazardous levels of noise. At Arizona Balance and Hearing Aids, we offer a variety of custom ear protection products. We invite you to schedule a consultation to find out which product is right for you.
At ABHA, we offer the following custom ear protection options:
Custom molded earplugs are the first line of defense against general noise. Many occupations, such as factory or construction work, dentistry, mining, etc., expose workers to dangerous levels of noise for long periods of time. Recreationally, sports fans who attend live games in stadiums or music lovers at a venue will experience levels of deafening noise. They are also useful for commute by public transportation and airplane. For general use, custom earplugs protect your ears from the volumes and decibels that hurt, while allowing in the sounds you want to hear. Custom molded earplugs last for years with proper care – and will save your hearing in the long term.
Musicians perform in a variety of venues, from big stadiums to small dive bars. Regardless of the space, the volume of sound experienced on a regular basis may cause permanent damage to hearing – which is one of the most important senses for a musician. Unlike generic foam or silicone earplugs, musician’s plugs are specially designed for musicians from molds of their ears to best preserve an accuracy of sound, both of their instruments as well as their bandmates. This will ensure successful performances, while filtering out the damaging frequencies. These earplugs are also recommended for all people involved in the live music industry, from DJs to sound crews to concert goers.
In-ear monitors are commonly preferred by musicians who perform in front of larger audiences, in larger venues. In these cases, musicians will struggle to hear the sounds on stage, with competing sounds of both the venue’s amplification systems as well as the screams of their adoring fans. Custom molded in-ear-monitors provide the same protection as custom molded musician’s earplugs, and also stream their performed sound to their ears in a tolerable volume to keep them on track.
Custom made in-ear monitors for broadcasters are crucial for people who work in different aspects of the media. Whether a journalist on the frontline of a combat zone or courtside at an NBA game, these monitors protect your ears from the decibels experienced while in the thick of the action while also feeding you the sounds you need to hear to do your job. The live stream of sounds from your producers or your broadcast will be unfettered from the background noise around you.
Hearing is an important element of hunting. The rustle of leaves will identify your next target, and it will also indicate to you how quietly you should walk through a certain area. Custom made hunter’s earplugs are designed to protect your hearing by filtering out the sharp shock of gunshot sounds, while still maintaining a level of accessibility and awareness to the sounds around you.
