Why Custom Hearing Protection?
Better Fit: 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.
BetterComfort: Professionally made, custom-fit hearing protection are indisputably superior in comfort.
Better Protection: 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 versus 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).
