Your hearing is a precious resource. Sensorineural hearing loss, once present, is permanent. If you are exposed to high levels of sound either at work or through hobbies such as music production, concert going, firearm practice, or construction (not a complete list) – it is highly recommend that you protect your ears.
Standard “sound protection” sold over the counter such as foam ear plugs are not ideal for a number of reasons.
1. The protection afforded is limited to certain frequencies of sound. The nature of the material decreases it’s effectiveness.
2. These partial frequency filters often add a filtered or “colored” quality to the sound. This makes them highly undesirable for situations required audio fidelity such as production or enjoyment of music.
