Working in an industry that exposes your ears to loud noises, such as musicians or construction workers, can impact hearing. Audiologists can help protect your hearing with custom-made hearing protection ear molds or ear plugs. Ear molds are a custom made-in-the-ear device used to protect your hearing as well as to channel and amplify sound. Our precise, custom-fit hearing instrument earpieces provide comfortable and highly effective sound transmission to the ear for a multitude of applications. Styles vary according to level of hearing loss, and the style of hearing aid with which they're paired. An ARC audiologist will work with you to determine the right size and shape of earmold that you need.
