Exposure to excessive noise—not age—is the leading cause of hearing loss, and continued exposure can worsen preexisting hearing problems.

Even more troubling is the fact that noise-induced hearing loss, once acquired, is both permanent and irreversible.

The good news, however, is that noise-induced hearing loss is 100% preventable by turning down the volume or by wearing ear protection. Learn more about noise-induced hearing loss here. Or better still, make an appointment with us to learn how our comfortable, effective hearing protection can not only help safeguard your hearing, but can also enhance your auditory experience.

Hearing damage occurs due to prolonged exposure to loud noise. At 85 decibels (dB) you can safely listen for 8 hours without hearing protection, but every 3dB increase in dB will halve the safe exposure time. So 88dB is 4 hours, 91dB is 2 hours and so forth. Average concerts are at around 100dB which means you have only 15 minutes safe listening time.

ETY Hearing Protection

High-Fidelity Earplugs

ETY•Plugs® are the world’s highest fidelity non-custom earplugs. They reduce most noise to safe levels while preserving the clarity of speech and the richness of music. ETY•Plugs are configured to replicate the natural response of the ear canal so that when sound enters the earplug, it is reproduced unchanged, exactly the same as the ear would hear it, only quieter.

Regular use of these high-fidelity earplugs while practicing, performing and listening to music will protect hearing from the cumulative effects of overexposure to loud sound throughout life. ETY•Plugs are reusable, but with repeated use, the eartips may lose elasticity. For best performance and retention, if you use your ETY•Plugs constantly, replace them every 3-6 months.
