Noise pollution is rarely mentioned in common discourse, but as a hearing health center we consider it often. It may be surprising to learn that over 15% of Americans are estimated to experience hearing loss as a result of loud noise pollution (also known as Noise Induced Hearing Loss, or NIHL). We consider this figure to be unfortunate, because NIHL is the most preventable form of hearing loss.
To protect your hearing, consider the many options for earplugs and ear molds that are available. We carry all kinds of materials to make custom plugs or molds for whatever your lifestyle demands protection from. We commonly make plugs and molds for musicians, swimmers, construction personnel, machinists, and more.
