Hearing Protection

When you think about hearing protection, do you think it is only for on-the-job protection? It’s true that pilots, construction workers, machinists and factory workers need on-the-job hearing protection that suppresses sound while still allowing conversation for safety. But hunters, swimmers, musicians, woodworkers and gardeners need to protect their ears and hearing as well. The hearing instrument specialist at Hear More Medical Centers of America can fit you with hearing protection that’s effective and comfortable to wear. At work or at play, it’s important to protect your hearing against damaging noise.

Custom Earmolds and Earplugs

Why trust something as valuable as your hearing to off-the-shelf earmolds and earplugs. No two ears are shaped exactly the same, that’s why over-the-counter earplugs are uncomfortable and can leave gaps allowing dangerous decibels to pass through. The hearing instrument specialist at Hear More Medical Centers of America can take a mold of your ear bowl or ear canal in just a few minutes. This process allows our specialist to produce custom earmolds and earplugs that fit your ears exactly. You can wear them comfortably for hours, knowing you’ve protected your hearing against loss.


Earmolds are available in soft and hard materials. Full-shell earmolds fill the ear bowl completely and provide protection against exposure to high levels of noise. Half-shell earmolds leave a portion of the ear exposed and are generally used to protect against mid-level noise exposure.

Digital custom earmolds are perfect for hunters and shooters. They can amplify background noise to help you detect game, allow conversation to be heard for safety and block the dangerous sound of firearm discharge.


Custom earplugs specially fit into your ear canal. They are much more comfortable than standard earplugs. They can be fitted with small handles for easy insertion and removal or cords to keep them handy when you need them. In addition to noise protection, custom earplugs defend your inner ear from damaging water and wind. Shift workers and frequent travelers like the peace and quiet that custom earplugs provide, making it easier to get to sleep no matter the time or location.

Your hearing instrument specialist will assess your hearing protection needs and recommend the best product for protecting your hearing.
