Did you know that over 15% of Americans experience noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL)? It’s a preventable form of hearing loss caused by repeated exposure to loud noise, and while NIHL is irreversible, there are options to protect your hearing.
Our ears have a specific threshold for damage that’s right around 85 decibels. Many common noises like bulldozers, concerts, lawnmowers, and even city traffic noise all peak at 85 dB or higher, meaning NIHL could occur.
Prolonged exposure to these loud noises can slowly do damage to your ears, and while you might not notice it at the time, after many years of unprotected exposure you could find yourself with hearing loss.
You can preserve your hearing during these activities with the use of custom earmolds and protective ear plugs. They are an appropriate choice for anyone who will be exposed to loud sounds, underwater activities, or needs a custom-fit earmold for hearing aids or other instruments.
