Hearing Protection

The effects of hearing damage are hard to avoid without adequate protection. Long-term problems associated with noise-induced hearing loss can be temporary or permanent. Dove Hearing Center helps patients by providing access to multiple forms of hearing protection. Even with a small routine change, it can make a huge difference in hearing health.

Custom earmolds and earplugs

Maximizing the capabilities of hearing accessories is possible with the use of custom variants. Custom earmolds and earplugs are made based on the wearer’s ear size. This individual fit gets rid of gaps while improving comfort during all-day usage. Custom earmolds are available as full-shell, half-shell, dome, canal, skeleton and semi-skeleton sizes.

Custom earplugs have unique features based on the model and type. Wearers can use custom earplugs to enhance all hearing-related activities in their life. Individuals with specific protection needs have a range of choices when choosing custom earplugs.

Hearing protection

Adequate ear protection will prevent rapid hearing degradation. Earmuffs, earmolds and earplugs all provide different types of customized protection. Hearing accessories work well as an individual item, or together as a compatible set. Wearers that match their hearing protection with current lifestyle choices will find them the most useful.

Musicians earplugs and monitors

The creation of music involves understanding the intricacies of different sound levels. In a studio setting, sound levels are harmful at a loud volume. Musicians’ earplugs get rid of this problem by normalizing the strongest tones when listening to music. It doesn’t interfere with the creative process and ensures the integrity of the music stays intact.

In-ear monitors are a replacement for onstage wedges. They are small microphones that fit inside the ear canal. During a performance, this helps musicians hear the music the same way the audience does. In-ear monitors are a streamlined solution to one of the biggest problems of performing in a live arena. Without needing the extra space taken up by wedges, bands can concentrate on more important parts of their setup.
