CUSTOM HEARING PROTECTION
Austin ENT Associates partners with several custom earmold labs to offer products including musician filtered earplugs, in-ear monitor systems, custom earbuds, sleep plugs and other custom noise protection options.
EARPLUGS FOR MUSICIANS AND CONCERT-GOERS:
Different levels of attenuation are available and plugs can be made with or without a cord. Filtered attenuation protects from noise while an integral filter allows some speech awareness. Custom filtered plugs are ideal for musicians and their fans, while custom electronic plugs give much needed, instantaneous protection from gun blasts while still affording the wearer environmental awareness.
IN-EAR MUSICIAN MONITORS
FOR MUSICIANS WHO PERFORM FOR LARGE AUDIENCES, IN-EAR MUSICIAN MONITORS (IEMS) ARE THE CURRENT STANDARD IN MUSICIAN TECHNOLOGY. THEY ALLOW THE MUSICIAN TO CLEARLY HEAR THE MUSIC THEY ARE MAKING AS THE AUDIENCE WOULD HEAR IT WHILE STILL PROTECTING THE MUSICIAN'S EARS FROM EXTREMELY LOUD AMPLIFICATION SYSTEMS AND AUDIENCES.
These ear plugs can be made for use in industrial settings or for every day noisy tasks such as mowing the lawn or working around power tools. There are even custom plugs for use while sleeping if noise exposure at night keeps you awake! No matter what the noise, prolonged exposure will cause hearing damage, but custom protection can keep this damage from taking a toll on your ears.
Designed for swimming or showering to prevent moisture from entering the canal, they provide superb all-around noise reduction. The plugs float and have integral finger grips for easy removal.
CUSTOM DIGITAL SHOOTERS PLUGS
We offer a range of products with varying features, including wind noise suppression and separate modes for game and clay shooting.
NON-DIGITAL SHOOTERS PLUGS
These plugs are for hunting environments where a low number of shots are fired. It utilizes small orifice non-linear acoustic filters, and a low NRR of 4 allows for awareness of game and tracking dog sounds, as well as easier communication with hunting/shooting partners.
