Hearing Protection

Noise, wind and water. The activities we love can be detrimental to our ears and our hearing. And most hearing damage is not reversible. So, it’s important to protect your hearing at each exposure. 

Your ears are unique and your hearing protection should be, too. The Speech & Hearing Center can create custom earmolds and ear plugs that are more comfortable than off-the-shelf products. They’re made specifically for your ears, so they fit more securely and offer better protection.

No matter your hobby, profession or lifestyle, The Speech & Hearing Center has options to protect your hearing, including the following:

Hunting and Shooting 

Whether you are in the fields, forests or shooting range, you need to protect your ears against the sound of gunfire. But for safety, you still need to hear the sounds around you. Custom hearing protection for hunters and shooters blocks out damaging noise while an attenuator lets in the natural noise around you.

Swimming and Surfing 

Watersports put your ears at risk from cold, wind and water. Custom protection reduces noise, protects from the elements and also floats.


Finding hearing protection that fits comfortably under your helmet can be a challenge. These custom earplugs do just that and are designed to reduce wind buffeting. 

Musician Earplugs and Monitors 

Professional and amateur musicians put their hearing at risk with every practice session and performance. But traditional hearing protection can prevent them you hearing your own music and voice, as well as the sounds from fellow musicians. Musicians’ earplugs fit deeply in the ear canal to prevent your own voice from sounding hollow, while comfortably reducing the decibels without distorting the sound quality. In-ear monitors let you hear the sounds you create, just as your audience hears them, without the harmful amplification.
