There is no doubt that protecting your ears and hearing is important. Non-custom earpieces such as muff-style headpieces or earplugs can be appropriate for many situations. However, they are not always the best solution. Muff-style headpieces can be hot, bulky and sometimes impractical. Earplugs have to be inserted properly, can come loose during activity and don’t help you communicate effectively while still blocking harmful noise.
Custom-fit earpieces are often the best choice to protect your ears and hearing. They are offered in a wide variety of styles and colors appropriate for many applications. They are molded from an impression taken directly from your ear. The impression process is painless and takes less than 15 minutes. Because your ears are unique, custom-fit earpieces offer a great fit, superior comfort and repeatable effectiveness.
