Custom Hearing Protection
Your ears are unique, and so is your lifestyle. Clarity Audiology & Hearing Solutions, LLC can craft custom earmolds taken from impressions of your ears to offer a snug, comfortable fit and protection you won’t receive from one-size-fits-all, disposable earplugs. These impressions can be used to create plugs designed for hunting, music, construction work, and a range of other activities that put your hearing at risk.
- A custom earplug made from the 3D image of your individual canal will ensure the best possible fit. Human ears are just as individual and unique as fingerprints—no two are exactly the same size or shape. In fact, some ears are too small or too large to obtain an adequate fit at all with non-custom products.
- Professionally made, custom-fit hearing protection are indis-putably superior in comfort.
- Custom fit hearing protection is also custom-designed to provide the proper amount of hearing protection you need for your intended use.
- Improper fit and improper insertion of non-custom products often leads to very poor real-world hearing protection vs custom molded products.
- Some non-custom products may conversely OVER protect hearing, leading to poor communication and/or poor fidelity sound in certain settings.
- Disposable: $0.25 per pair X 2 pairs/day X 5 days/week X 50 weeks/year =$112.50 per year
- Custom: $200 for pair which lasts ~5 years = $40.00 per year (or $50.00 per year for musician plugs with filters).
Our Customization Process
We are proud to be one of the first providers in the country to implement 3D scanning technology. Our 3D scan is more accurate, less invasive, painless, and takes just a few minutes. During the scan, you will be able to see the inside of your ear canal and watch the map for you new earmolds being cre-ated. Turnaround times for these devices are shortened because we are able to instantly send the scan to the manufacturer, eliminating delays & expense when compared to shipping ear impressions.
We will not only take a custom mold of your unique ear, but will also work with you to customize your hearing protection to your sound environment to pick the proper amount of attenuation required. You can even customize the color(s), design, handles/cords, and engraving!
Proper hearing protection requires proper insertion, use and care. We will take the time to go over all of this with you and provide use &
care materials to make sure you are fully informed.

Custom Hearing Protection for Hunting or Industrial Settings
If you work or play around loud noises, such as firearms and industrial machinery, you may be causing permanent damage to your hearing. Prolonged exposure to loud noises and even occasional exposure to extremely loud or explosive noises can cause significant damage without hearing protection . Clarity Audiology & Hearing Solutions, LLC can create custom ear plugs designed to fit your ears precisely and protect your hearing from any number of noise environments.
Custom swim plugs keep moisture out of the ear canal, which can be important for patients recovering from ear infections, ear surgery, and other conditions that require the ear canals be kept dry. Ideal for swimming, showering and other aquatic activities, the fit of a custom swim plugs is the most important aspect.
For musicians or frequent concert-goers, musician’s earplugs can save your hearing without distorting sound. Foam plugs offer decent general protection, but can distort sound by attenuating only certain frequencies. Custom musician’s earplugs are designed with filters to lower the volume without distorting the sound integrity. We can help select musician’s plugs that offer protection with the appropriate protection specific to your type of instrument or music environment.
