What is painless, odorless, tasteless, invisible and toxic? Noise-Induced Hearing Loss
THE PROBLEM: NOISE
Repeated exposure to loud music, car engines, motorcycles, chain-saws, lawn-mowers, other equipment, noisy crowds, and even hair dryers can erode hearing slowly. The result over time: irreversible hearing loss! There are 3 factors of noise exposure that influence hearing: how loud, how long, and how close the sounds are:
The louder the sound, the higher the risk for hearing loss.
The longer the exposure to loud sounds, the more damaging it can be.
The closer the sound, the greater impact on your ear.
THE SOLUTION: PROTECT YOUR EARS
Noise plugs are essential! Custom fit earmolds for hearing protection or direct-to-ear listening provide an effective and comfortable solution. Users can take advantage of custom fit earmolds for a variety of applications, whether it's listening to electronic music devices, or communicating during motor sports or firearm use. Tests conducted by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory suggest that participants who wear custom fit hearing protection experience greater consistency of attenuation and fit than those using generic over-the-counter products. Several different custom styles of noise plugs exist at a cost of $225.00 a pair.
