Custom Hearing Protection

Loud, constant sounds all day long at work from machinery, engines, or other industrial noises can cause long-term hearing problems. Loud, sudden noises like gunfire, motorcycles or equipment startup are also damaging.

Any noise over 85 dB can cause permanent hearing loss. Hearing protection that is not properly fitted to the wearer’s ears will not effectively prevent damaging noises from penetrating the ear canal.

Custom earplugs provide you with a comfortable and reliable solution to protect your hearing on the job. Call Flatirons Audiology today for an appointment and we will help you identify the type of hearing protection most appropriate for your workplace, take your ear impressions, place the order and call you when they are ready for pickup and fitting.

Custom Hearing Protection for Motorcyclists

There are more than 5 million registered motorcycle owners in the United States. According to a recent US DOT study, noise from motorcycles regularly register between 70 and 128 dBA which is enough to cause permanent hearing damage. When throttled up, the sound can be sustained near the upper range.

For unhelmeted motorcyclists, Wind rushing past your ears while riding your motorcycle can also lead to hearing loss. For the unhelmeted motorcyclist, it only takes 4 minutes of exposure to the sound of a motorcycle at anything other than idle for hearing loss to begin. Motorcycle earplugs reduce wind noise and are designed to be comfortably worn under your helmet.
