Hearing Protection

Exposure to consistent or intermittent loud noise can lead to hearing loss and tinnitus. Too often, people forgo wearing hearing protection because it is bulky and uncomfortable.

The hearing care professionals at The Hearing Spa match your lifestyle and hearing protection needs to the hearing protection available to create a solution that is comfortable to wear and protects your hearing. Custom solutions made from a mold of your ear bowl or ear canal fit better, so they are comfortable to wear for hours at a time. And, because they fit well, they protect better too.

Custom earmolds

Custom earmolds are available in a range of sizes, colors and types. Earmolds may be made from solid material or they can be crafted from soft or spongy material. Earmolds are available in full-shell and half-shell styles. Both are worn in the top of the ear canal, fitting in the bowl of the ear. Generally, full-shell earmolds are worn to protect hearing in a high-level noise environment, while half-shell devices are for lower noise exposure levels. Discuss your hearing protection needs with the hearing professionals at The Hearing Spa for an expert recommendation.

Custom earplugs

Earplugs are a type of hearing protection that is worn in the ear canal. Some earplugs are solid and other earplugs allow some sound to pass through. Musicians and medical professionals who need to hear some sound while blocking out damaging levels of noise wear custom earplugs made just for their specific needs.

The Hearing Spa takes a mold of your ear canal, so your specialty earplugs fit the contours and shape of your ear canal perfectly. The casting process takes just a few minutes and is totally painless. Custom earplugs will be far more comfortable than typical off-the-shelf devices. Small handles or detachable cords make inserting and removing custom earplugs easy.

Swimmers, surfers and others that engage in watersports benefit from custom earplugs. By reducing the ear canal’s exposure to water, you reduce the chances of swimmer’s ear or ear infections.

Shift workers and frequent travelers benefit from custom earplugs as they are an easy way to create a quiet environment for sleeping, no matter where you are or the time of the day.

Musician’s earplugs and monitors

Musicians need special ear protection. The level of noise created by voices, instruments and amplified sound is damaging to hearing. However, standard hearing protection devices distort or muffle sound, making performing difficult. The Hearing Spa offers custom musician earplugs that protect your hearing without distorting the sound. They reduce the decibel levels without altering the tone of the music. 

You can still easily hear conversation as well. In-ear monitors replace stage monitors. They allow the musician to hear music without damaging amplification or crowd noise.
