      Hearing Protection

      Hearing Protection

      At United Hearing Healthcare, we believe in the impact hearing protection has against future hearing loss or damage.

      Hearing protection is imperative for many activities outside of loud and noisy environments.

      Swimmers can use earplugs to create a water tight seal preventing swimmers ear, hunters can use specialized hearing protection for shooting. Custom earmolds and earplugs can also provide protection from wind, sand, ice, snow, and rain. Hearing protection can also be of use to professions where you need to hear what’s going on but can lower or attenuate the loud sounds coming in like for dentists, waiters, or bartenders.

      There are an abundance of uses for hearing protection that has an immediate impact on your life today, as well as your future hearing health. 

      Types of Hearing Protection

      Though over-the-counter earplugs offer some protection, custom earmolds and earplugs offer maximum protection and a comfortable fit that is designed specifically for your ears. Custom options obtained from a hearing professional offer more peace of mind knowing that your ears have the best possible protection against hearing loss.

      Below are some of the types and uses for our custom hearing protection offerings:

      Hunting

      These are great when used for hunting, shooting, and sudden noise. A filter instantaneously closes when damaging noise levels are reached, and they allow essentially normal hearing at all other times.

      Music

      Ideal for performing musicians and concert-goers, these are also great for flight attendants, bartenders, waiters, and dental professionals. They allow the wearer to hear sounds accurately, but at reduced levels. Three filter options are available: 9dB, 15dB, or 25dB.

      Swimming

      These are great for swimming and showering – and they float! They also provide superb noise reduction.

      Sleep

      These provide comfortable and uninterrupted rest. Also great for shift workers with non-traditional hours.

      Motorsport

      These are designed with a hollow canal for under-helmet use to reduce wind buffering.

      Watersport

      Perfect for your next trip to Lucky Peak, these are designed to prevent surfer’s ear and swimmer’s ear caused by exposure to cold water and wind. These are incredibly useful boating, riding a jet ski, or water skiing!

      The buoyant material is molded with a sealed membrane spanning the sound bore that keeps cold water and air out of the ear canal, but allows for conversation and quality hearing while in the ear.

      Occupational

      These are ideal for high-noise industrial environments.

      ICustom

      These are great for use with any bud/button style earphones, reducing outside noise pollution and enabling a lower volume to be able to hear your music!

      Defendear 1

      These provide amplification for situational awareness, as well as noise attenuation when you pull the trigger.

      Defendear 2

      This hearing protection offers two modes: game, which is optimized for intermittent shots, and clay mode, which is optimized for continued shots.

      Defendear Hunter

      This device offers standard digital features and provides protection in windy environments.
