Generic earplugs and earmolds are often like fitting a square peg into a round hole – they don’t quite fit right!

Everyone’s ears are different, so generic earplugs are a gamble to see if they’ll fit correctly.

From causing serious earaches to constantly falling out, you’re probably facing more discomfort than noise cancelling.

If you’re wondering to yourself, “Where can I get custom earplugs near me?” then you’re in the right place.

South Shore Hearing Center has the capability to make custom-molded earplugs and earbuds that fit the specific contours of your ears so you can experience the most comfortable fit for your specific needs.

Why Is Hearing Protection Important?

Noise-related hearing loss (NIHL) is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Noise exposure is a part of life, but continued exposure to loud noise can cause damage to the hair cells in the cochlea, leading to tinnitus symptoms and permanent hearing loss challenges.

Hearing loss is preventable – through hearing protection. After being exposed to loud noise—through an explosive event, a concert, or somewhere that you feel was just a little too loud—it’s important to get your hearing tested so that your audiologist has a baseline to compare to future hearing tests. That way, we can see how your hearing changes over time.

How Can Custom Earmolds Help Me?

Custom molded earplugs are made from an impression or casting of your outer ears that hearing care professionals take. Castings used to use impression material, which is poured into your ears and set to make the mold, but recent improvements in earmold-making have made it possible to create precise 3D rendered images of your ears through laser scanners and rendering software.

Custom earmolds are used for several different purposes and activities, such as:

  • Precisely fit hearing aids
  • Shooting and hunting
  • Hearing protection for motorcycles, snowmobiles, and gardening equipment like chainsaws and power tools
  • Personal monitors for musicians
  • Swimming earplugs to protect against swimmer’s ear
  • Hearing protection during loud events like concerts, going to nightclubs, or attending sporting events
    • Hearing protection for construction workers and industrial equipment operators
