3 Main Benefits of Custom Hearing Protection for Those in Trades

Did you know it may be easier to damage your hearing than you think? While a normal conversion occurs at around 60-70 dB, hearing loss can happen at just 85 dB! Taking this into account, power tools can actually reach up to 100dB or more, depending on the tool. This is loud enough to permanently damage your hearing, especially if you are around the sound on a regular basis. As you can see, it is quite easy to damage your hearing, especially if your job requires the use of loud tools. Because of this, it is vital that you use hearing protection while on the job. Read on to learn more about custom hearing protection and how it can benefit you.

They are Made to Fit and are More Effective

Custom-made ear protection is created to fit your ears perfectly. This means you won’t need to worry about them being too big or too small, or not providing the right protection for your ears. With custom ear protection, you get what you pay for, so even though they may cost more, they provide superior quality and are the most effective at preventing noise damage.

They are More Comfortable

Let’s face it, ear protection is not always comfortable. If you are not using the proper protection because it’s not comfortable, you need custom-made ear protection. Because it is made specifically for your ear, the fit and is going to be perfect!

They Can Be Technologically Advanced

Modern-day hearing protection is very high tech and comes with features like noise cancellation and ventilation so that you get a beautiful listening experience while still protecting your hearing. On the other hand, store-bought earplugs can simply dampen your overall hearing ability and make it difficult to hear the things you want while blocking out excessive noise. Opting for custom hearing protection is the superior choice.

They Are Customizable

Unlike store-bought earplugs, custom ear protection can be customized to your liking. For example, you can purchase custom ear protection in the style of your workplace or add unique designs that fit your needs. Being able to personalize your ear protection can give you more motivation to wear it.
