A multitude of hearing protection options is available to protect your auditory system. Choose the right one to combat the noisy environment.
Our increased exposure to excessively noisy environments has caused a plethora of hearing loss issues to become quite prevalent. Living in a sonorous society, where the majority of our activities take place in noisy environments, whether work, leisure, or even personal spaces.
Even though recent years have seen an awareness of the need to control noise, there is still a long way to go. Common complaints of inability to hear even sounds of normal amplitude with aging have become an increasingly common health problem to deal with.
To tackle this direful issue, developers have introduced many hearing protector devices. Primarily found in two basic types: earplugs and earphones. Hearing protectors have different characteristics. While some are designed to only allow the transmission of specific sounds, some muffle the sounds through it while others act as obstacles, completely eliminating any sound to pass through.
Popular Hearing Protection Devices
Let’s take a look at some hearing protector devices popular in the market today.
Used both as hearing aids and hearing protector devices, the earmolds are soft plastic instruments custom-designed to fit in the ear accurately by taking a slight impression of your ear.
Construction or Industrial Sites
Specifically designed hearing protectors for people working in construction and industrial zones with intensely high exposure to clangorous noises of machinery, earplugs, and earmuffs have distinct features. Some worksite earmuffs have the peculiar feature to completely block the loud noises around but allow human speeches to be heard. This means that any instructions, communication among individuals, or warnings would not go unheard by the wearer.
A common cause of hearing loss is contact with high volumes of water, which blockages the ear canal. It is crucial for swimmers, divers, and emergency personnel to use hearing protector devices to protect against any hearing impairments.
Musicians and tech workers
With the incessant exposure to loud, earsplitting music, spending their day in the midst of stentorian equipment, musicians are extremely likely to suffer from some degree of hearing loss. It is therefore integral for these band members as well as other personnel working along, including caterers and technicians, to wear hearing protectors.
An array of hearing protector options has been introduced to mitigate the deleterious impact of concussive music on their hearing ability. Specialized earplugs and earphones have been devised, which allow the music frequencies into the ear by regressing the volume, allowing them to perform well while at the same time protecting their hearing. They can also hear the interactions on the stage better while wearing the hearing protectors.
Primarily designed to protect the ears from the clangorous shockwave when a gunshot is set off, This hearing protector protects the eardrum from the jerking noises.
