Custom Earplugs and Musician Monitors

Sudden or prolonged exposure to noise can cause damage to your hearing and is one of the leading causes of hearing loss. Hearing loss from prolonged noise exposure is often detected too late resulting in permanent hearing loss. Hearing loss from noise exposure may start as ringing in the ears after a loud concert or after using a power tool. Even if the ears don’t ring, if the noise is repeated, the damage to the ears adds up to cause a permanent hearing loss..
