Just like everything else on the market today there are multiple types of ear protection options available. The tricky part is knowing and picking the right one for you and your protection needs. True, ear protection of any kind does protect your hearing, but certain ear protection protects better than others in specific environments and situations. Not all ear protection is alike or made the same and this is an important thing to consider when choosing the right ear protection for your needs.
WHY DO YOU NEED EAR PROTECTION?
When you are first looking into getting ear protection you first must determine what type of environments you are going to be in when using your ear protection. Consider the following: are you going to be using your ear protection in your noisy work place or are you going to use it at home as you do projects around the house? Are you a singer wanting it for the stage or are you a hunter wanting it to protect against gunshots or are you wanting it to use while riding your motorcycle or off-road vehicles? Depending on your use of ear protection there are many different options you can go with.
WHICH TYPE OF EAR PROTECTION DO YOU NEED?
There are a few general options to choose from. You can go with a custom-made earmold option or you can go with generic models that fit any size. Once again be sure to get the correct type of ear protection for the noise you will be exposed to. In some cases it might even be a good idea to double up the ear protection, that is, use custom earmolds or earplugs along with earmuffs to help protect your hearing that extra bit.
Custom earmolds are a great choice for many when it comes to ear protection. There are multiple types of custom earmold protection along with multiple styles, options and even colors choices. Custom earmold protection can be customized to your specific ear and your ear protection needs. Such as hunting, the stage or for work with special options as well.
TALK TO YOUR AUDIOLOGIST
Whichever ear protection you choose be sure to consult with your audiologist as they will be able to not only help you pick the correct type of ear protection for your needs, but they will also be able to take earmold impressions and order your custom earmold for your ear protection choice.
