Hearing Protection

Sensorineural hearing loss is the most common type of hearing loss. It is most frequently caused by exposure to noise. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when parts of the inner ear or vestibular nerve are damaged. This damage cannot be reversed. Protect your precious hearing with custom earmolds, earplugs and in-ear monitors from Peninsula Hearing. 

Earmolds and earplugs  

Whether you work or play in a noisy environment, you need hearing protection to safeguard your hearing. Wear custom earmolds from Peninsula Hearing for comfortable protection. Full shell and half shell options are available. We make custom earmolds to fit your noise protection needs. Specialty earplugs fit comfortably in the ear canal and can be worn for protection against noise or water. Hunters, swimmers and musicians still hear the sounds they need while keeping out damaging water or noise. 

Musician earplugs and monitors  

It’s a fact: musicians, sound crews, sound engineers and music teachers are all exposed to damaging levels of noise while doing the work they love. Off-the-shelf solutions muffle speech and sound. Musicians earplugs and monitors from Peninsula Hearing reduce the decibels to a safe level without distorting the sounds you need to hear. In-ear musician monitors allow you to hear the sounds you create without exposure to damaging amplification. Earmolds and monitors can be custom made to fit your ear exactly and protect comfortably so you perform perfectly. 

Hearing protection 

Hunters, swimmers, surfers and motorsports enthusiasts put their hearing at risk from noise, water and wind. Specialty hearing protection devices protect you at work and at play. In-ear devices stop water, wind and damaging noise while still allowing you to hear the sounds that keep you safe. Even occupations such as dentists and flight attendants are exposed to damaging noise levels and need comfortable and discreet hearing protection. 

Whatever your lifestyle or occupation, if you are exposed to noise you put your hearing at risk. Schedule regular hearing screenings to quickly detect hearing loss and talk to an audiologist at Peninsula Hearing about custom hearing protection solutions.
