Hearing Protection

Protection for Law Enforcement

Law enforcement officers require a good sense of hearing to perform their job effectively. If you are in Law Enforcement, you might have experienced a situation where firing your weapon has affected your hearing temporarily. This could cause potential damage to your hearing.

Musicians Hearing Protection

Professional musicians are often subjected to very loud sounds that over long periods of time can result in hearing loss, tinnitus, and hypersensitivity. For these reasons traditional earplugs are not recommended for professional musicians, as they reduce sound by muffling low-to-mid-range frequencies resulting in distorted music. Therefore we recommend custom ear molds made specifically for musicians. These ear plugs protect musician’s ears from loud sounds while allowing them to hear all the sounds clearly.

Hearing Protection for Hunters and Recreational Shooters

Major hearing problems can occur if you are hunting without protection. Wear earplugs that fit specifically to your ear canal. High-quality hearing protection can prevent needless and permanent damage to the ear.
Hunting demands the ability to hear very soft sounds and at the same time protecting the ear from the high noise levels of a gun blast. Hunters have plenty of options to choose from. They can go for custom or over-the-counter earplugs or earmuffs, or devices that offer amplification while reducing the sounds of gunfire down to a safe level.
Electronic earplugs upgrade the sounds around you. You can find the electronic earplugs in custom molds as well as standard, less expensive alternatives.

Occupational Hearing Protection

Canada Occupational Health and Safety Regulations provides safety from health hazards at workplaces. Every employer is obliged to follow the rules and must maintain the standardized levels of sounds at his workplace. If you feel that you are exposed to excessive or high noise levels, inform your employer immediately. The employer must designate a qualified person to investigate the problem after consulting with workplace health and safety committee.
