Custom-Molded Hearing Protection to Fit Any Activity or Lifestyle.
Lafayette Hearing Center’s custom-molded earplugs offer a degree of comfort and sound protection that you will not find in any standard, generic earplugs. In addition to their superior fit, our custom earplugs are designed to retain accurate frequency responses, meaning you’ll hear the full range of sounds at a safer, reduced volume, and they are available in a variety of colors.
A molding appointment is required for the person who will wear them. We also offer a 90-day remake warranty, just in case your custom mold isn’t fitting as promised.
Custom Molded Hearing Protection
Concert or Musician Plugs
Today’s rock music can be hard on your hearing. It may seem innocent, but attending a concert or playing in a rock band can leave you with permanent, irreparable hearing loss. Repeated exposure to 120dB or more, which you can encounter at a concert, can cause irreversible damage to your hearing.
Concert plugs, ideal for musicians and concert goers, allow you to hear accurately, but at reduced levels. We recommend custom-molded musician earplugs to ensure the best fit for your ears, but we also have generic options available.
Hunter and Shooter Custom Hearing Protection
Lafayette Hearing Center offers custom hearing protection for hunters and shooters. These plugs are designed for sudden-noise environments. A filter instantaneously closes when damaging noise levels are reached, but allows essentially normal hearing at all other times. We offer a full line of Custom Hearing Protection from DefendEar. For more information, view our DefendEar Digital Hearing Protection brochure.
Floatable Swim Protection
Swim plugs are ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time in the water or is prone to ear infections. You can get them in any color, including swirls, glitter and glow-in-the-dark. While designed for swimming or showering to prevent moisture from entering the ear canal, custom swim plugs also provide superb all-around noise reduction. They have integral finger grips for easy removal and they float.
Custom Headphone Plugs
Generic headphones can be uncomfortable and are impractical for physical activities, such as jogging. The traditional “bud” style headphones allow a lot of noise from your environment to enter your ears, which causes you to turn the volume even higher to combat that noise. Studies have shown that “bud” wearers typically turn their MP3 players up to 120dB, which can cause permanent hearing loss in seconds. Custom-made headphone plugs can be used with your iPod™ (or other MP3 player) and your cellphone. And since they are custom-fitted for your ear, these plugs are much more comfortable and won’t fall out during physical activity.
Custom Music Monitors and Music Monitor Impressions
Stage performers are routinely exposed to hearing damage from both amplifiers and stage monitors, which must be turned up to potentially harmful levels so they can be heard above the music. Lafayette Hearing Center’s full line of custom inside-the-ear musician’s monitors replace traditional wedge monitors with precise, isolated sound delivered directly to you, so you can stay in tune and perform your best.
We can also create music monitor impressions for people who would like to order their own custom music monitors online.
