The use of ear protection is needed in many activities: in the workplace, around heavy equipment, in the presence of loud music or firearms, and similar situations.
Other sources of damaging noise are not so obvious. Something as simple as mowing the lawn, riding a motorcycle, enjoying your favorite sport, or even attending a concert can leave you with permanent, irreparable hearing loss.
Leave your ears unprotected and the day may come when you have trouble understanding normal conversation. Listening to friends and family, even watching television and listening to music, can become a chore.
A one-time exposure- no matter how brief- of 120 dB or more, which you can encounter at a concert, can leave your hearing permanently damaged. Prolonged exposure to 85 dB, which a simple power tool can generate, can do the same.
Unfortunately, the most common hearing protection options may be as effective as one might image. Foam earplugs must be inserted perfectly- every time- to provide the advertised level of protection. They also can be uncomfortable and may not fit everyone's ear. Plus, if you were to use two foam plugs a day on the job, making the switch to custom-fit earpieces could actually save you money over time.
Muff-style headpieces are hot, bulky, and often impractical. Other earplugs can come loose during activity. And if you have to communicate effectively while still blocking harmful noise, ordinary earplugs simply won't work.
The fact is, the best way to protect your hearing effectively and comfortably is with custom-fit earpieces from the providers at Treasure Valley Hearing & Balance.
