Permanent hearing loss can result from excessive loud noise exposure. The duration and loudness levels are directly related to the damage to the ear. Sources of loud noise include occupational noise, recreational noise and other sources of our everyday noisy world. Prevention is the best cure for noise induced hearing loss. To minimize your exposure to loud noise ear protection is the best solution.
Timiskaming Hearing Clinic can provide recommendations as to the best ear protection for you ranging from small earplugs to large headphones for industry and customized earplugs. Customized earplugs are available for the following:
Industry workers ie. miners
Sleeping plugs (for spouses of snorers)
Musicians (singers, musicians – musician plugs allow the musician to hear his or her own voice or instrument perfectly while dampening the louder sounds.)
Custom Swim Plugs
Many people including many children are prone to ear infections. This has resulted in having myringotomy or tubes inserted in the eardrums. Ear plugs can be made to keep the ears completely dry so you can enjoy swimming, bathing and in the shower.
Customized Earphones are specially fit custom plugs fitted to the earphone that will fit perfectly in your ear. This helps prevent the earphones from slipping out and reduces the noise around you. Many people report that the quality of sound is much improved from a personal customized earphone.
Note, loud music from personal earphones or devices can be harmful and result in irreversible damage. We can provide more information on this and counselling particularly to children and teenagers to help preserve their hearing.
