Primary Causes of Hearing Loss:

  • Excessive noise (i.e. construction, rock music, gun shot, etc)
  • Aging (presbycusis)
  • Infections (otitis media)
  • Injury to the head or ear
  • Birth defects or genetics
  • Ototoxic reaction to drugs or cancer treatment (i.e. antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiation)

What are some of the symptoms of hearing loss?

  • Frequently asking others to repeat themselves
  • Often avoiding social situations
  • Difficulty understanding speech in noisy situations
  • Feel that people are mumbling when they speak to you
  • Turning the television volume up so loud that others complain
  • Often misunderstanding conversations
  • Having to look at the speaker's face carefully to follow conversation
  • Difficulty hearing in church or an auditorium
  • Ringing in the ear(s)

If any of the above symptoms are familiar to you then chances are you might have hearing loss. A complete hearing evaluation by an audiologist is recommended.

These general questions will help assess whether or not you should visit a doctor of audiology for further testing.

The ear has three main parts that work together to help you hear — the outer, middle, and inner ear. Most of the work done by your ears is mechanical in nature, catching and amplifying sound waves, then turning them into electrical impulses to be sent to the brain.

Custom Molded Ear Plugs offer full-custom hearing protection, for a wide variety of applications from shooting to sleeping. When you find that ordinary ear plugs just do not work because they fall out, hurt, do not block enough noise, block too much sound, or ruin your enjoyment of music at concerts or on stage, it is time to consider custom molded ear plugs.
