Noise-induced hearing loss can occur due to one loud, excessive burst of sound like a jet taking off, or more commonly over a long period of time, such as regular exposure to the sound of machinery in a factory where you work for eight hours a day.
If you are exposed to loud sounds at festivals, during sporting events, at school, using equipment or enjoying leisure activities frequently or rarely, you need to wear high-quality ear protection. Hearing protection is an effective safeguard against harmful noise levels.
It may be helpful to use generic earplugs, but the preferred alternative is personalized ear protection. Disposable earplugs offer a solution for one-time scenarios, but aren’t recommended for extended or multiple uses. For ear protection shaped from your ear shape, the snug fit keeps the dangerous decibels out of place while still enabling you to hear the sounds you want to hear.
Because we understand the importance of custom ear protection, the team at Imagine Hearing Solutions carries top-of-the-line products to help you prevent hearing loss.
Musicians’ earplugs and monitors
When it comes to hearing protection, musicians have specific needs. They must preserve their ears, but they must also be able to clearly hear their own music as well as hear the music and voices of other musicians when playing. If you’re a musician the chance of hearing loss is much higher than those not exposed to loud music on a regular basis.
Musicians’ ear protection
This type of protection can reduce sound levels by about 20 dB, enough to reduce harmful sound without altering the enjoyment of the music.
For hobbyists and professional musicians who perform or are around electrical instruments, musicians’ monitors are essential. These devices function at once as both feedback monitors and earplugs. This ensures they block the noisy, unwanted noises around you while still providing a healthy level of sound from your instrument or your whole band.
