At Amplifon, we can supply our customers with tailored hearing protection that reduces the ambient noise around you, whilst sitting comfortably in your ears. We provide a high level of standard protection for your ears which can be useful in different circumstances. The hearing protection we supply is specially designed to fit the needs of the user in a specific environment.
The best way to protect your ears and your long term hearing is to avoid loud noise. In daily life this can be unavoidable and so noise cancelling ear plugs can be a great way to continue on your busy life while protecting your hearing.
Our hearing is made up of a sensitive structure that can be easily damaged from exposure to intense noise levels. Hearing protection can prevent damage to the fragile form of the inner-ear by reducing the noise exposure level which may cause hearing loss. Ear defenders, such as ear muffs and plugs, can protect ears from cold and noise. Depending on one's habits, it is important to choose a specific ear protection, customised on specific needs.
Hearing loss can occur after being exposed to noise exceeding 85dB (decibels), whether it is a brief but intense sound such as an explosion, or a regular exposure over time to loud noises in the workplace.
Therefore, it is vital that we wear hearing protection in situations capable of damaging our hearing. Not only can the exposure to dangerous noise levels directly result in a noise induced hearing loss, but it can also cause a condition known as Tinnitus.
It is essential to keep on top of your hearing, as it is can be easily damaged by dangerous noise levels. At Amplifon, we advise our customers to come in for an annual hearing test so it can become part of your normal health routine.
An annual hearing test enables you to take control of your own hearing, ensuring the early detection and management of hearing loss, as well as preventing it altogether. We can offer you the opportunity to take a look at our extensive range of hearing protection, including our earplugs for sleeping, swimming ear plugs and musician ear plugs, whilst getting your hearing checked.
Hearing is one of the senses we don’t take for granted! To get in touch with your local Amplifon clinic today, please call 1800 676 149 for a free, no obligation hearing test.
