Custom Hearing Protection in Colorado Springs

Custom Hearing Aid Earmolds

Many hearing aids require custom earpieces, which may enhance the quality of the hearing aid fitting by making it more comfortable as well as obtaining better sound quality. Hearing Consultants uses state-of-the-art technology to achieve more precise measurement of the ear canal to ensure the perfect fit.

Custom Hearing Protection

For construction workers, landscapers, motorcyclists, hunters, musicians, and many more, the risk of irreversible ear damage is very real. Be safe and don’t take your hearing for granted. Safeguard your hearing with custom hearing protection and custom earmolds with our trusted audiologists at Hearing Consultants of Colorado Springs.

Understanding Custom Fit Hearing Protection

Custom hearing protection shields your hearing from long-term damage. For those routinely exposed to very loud environments, proper custom hearing protection measures are imperative. The most hazardous noises include prolonged or intense, sudden exposure to truck or jet engines, construction tools, lawnmowers, concert music, and gunshots.

How Loud Is Too Loud?

It can be challenging to determine just how loud is too loud. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), noise exposure levels should never exceed 70 decibels during a period of 24 hours or 85 decibels over one hour. These are the best practices to reduce the risk of hearing impairment.

Symptoms of Hearing Damage

Hearing damage can be gradual or sudden. Most notice hearing changes progressively with consistent exposure to damaging noise. If you experience any of the following for longer than 24 hours, it’s important to see an audiologist:

Can You Prevent Hearing Damage?

When it comes to safeguarding your hearing, it’s essential to be proactive. While you cannot always control the noise around you, you can control how the exposure impacts your hearing. To protect your ears from excessive sound levels and to limit your exposure to hazardous noise, custom molded hearing protection is strongly recommended.

Custom Hearing Protection Can Help

Custom hearing protection is designed according to the patient’s unique needs and ear size. These devices, including custom earmolds or earplugs, work by minimizing the intensity of the sounds around you. In contrast to popular belief, hearing protection does not eliminate sound entirely, allowing you to still experience the sounds of your surroundings.

Types of Custom Hearing Protection

Store-bought earplugs may offer some degree of protection against long-term or intense exposure to damaging sounds. However, they cannot compete with the protection of comfortable, custom-tailored devices designed by an audiologist. Audiologists offer the most effective protection with custom earmolds crafted to the size and shape of your ear.

Exploring the Styles of Custom Earmolds

Similar to standard earplugs, custom earmolds come in an array of sizes and shapes. They can be soft, spongy, or solid and come in canal to full-shell styles based on the patient’s needs and preferences. Half-shell models are suitable for mid-level sound exposure, whereas full-shell models boast maximum protection for high-level sounds.

Custom Earmolds With Filtered Attenuators

Many patients opt for custom earmolds equipped with filtered attenuators. These additions facilitate communication while protecting the person’s hearing. These earmolds can be electronic or non-electronic and are commonly used for musicians over earbud headphones, pilots under their boom mics, and various other specialty applications.
