Exposure to excessive noise—not age—is the leading cause of hearing loss, and continued exposure can worsen preexisting hearing problems. Even more troubling is the fact that noise-induced hearing loss, once acquired, is both permanent and irreversible.

The good news, however, is that noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable by turning down the volume or by wearing ear protection. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss here. Or better still, make an appointment with us to learn how our comfortable, effective hearing protection can not only help safeguard your hearing, but can also enhance your auditory experience.

Hearing damage occurs due to prolonged exposure to loud noise. At 85 decibels (dB) you can safely listen for 8 hours without hearing protection, but every 3dB increase in dB will halve the safe exposure time. So 88dB is 4 hours, 91dB is 2 hours and so forth. Average concerts are at around 100dB which means you have only 15 minutes safe listening time.

 

Electronic Earplugs

ACS Pro Earplugs

ACS PRO Hearing Protection

Our ACS PRO custom-molded earplugs offer a degree of comfort and sound protection that you will not find in any standard, generic earplugs. In addition to their superior fit, our PRO earplugs are designed to retain accurate frequency response, so you’ll hear the full range of sounds—just at a reduced volume.

Our PRO series earplugs are vented to allow sound to pass both ways, which means the sound of your voice won’t boom inside of your ears like it does with most earplugs. You get specific, measurable protection with precision-engineered filters that offer the most natural sound available, clear and unmuffled.

Custom molded from medical-grade silicone, these plugs can be worn for extended periods of time without discomfort, and several models offer replaceable sound filters so that you can select the level of sound protection you need for the situation with 10, 15, 17, 20, 26 or 27 dB sound reduction.

Musicians Molds

Musicians Molds

Custom Musician molds offer good attenuation, but also tend to muffle the sound. So do compressible foam plugs. Etymotic Research has developed earplugs that address this problem. Musicians will find the ER-9 and ER-15 attenuators useful in reducing discomfort without sacrificing clarity and the ER-25 attenuator is even more useful to percussionists and rock musicians.

With the ER-9, ER-15, or the ER-25 Musician’s Earplugs:

  • Sound quality is clearer and more natural.
  • Fidelity of original sound is preserved
  • Fatigue associated with noise exposure is reduced
  • The world doesn’t sound muffled

What are some real-life examples of different decibel (dB) noise levels?

Decibel sound levels range widely; from the ‘comfortable to hear’ rustling of leaves at just 20 dB (decibels), to annoying sounds such as road traffic (70 dB), potentially damaging sounds such as 90 dB trucks and, further still, gun shot and jet engine sounds (130-150 dB).

Acoustic trauma and sustained exposure to noise are serious causes of hearing loss. Loud sounds can and do damage hearing, with the damage often undetected until it’s too late.
