Although this form of hearing loss is irreversible, custom hearing protection can prevent it from starting in the first place.
Many individuals often don’t think about how complex the hearing process is, but once we begin to lose some of our hearing, we quickly realize how delicate our ears are. Hearing loss can creep up on you and in the instance of noise-induced hearing loss, an impairment caused by exposure to loud sounds, the damage can be permanent. That’s why at Cape Cod Hearing Center we are strong advocates for preserving your healthy hearing and preventing hearing loss before it begins.

Thankfully, custom-made ear plugs and earmolds are an easy solution to noise prevention and are manufactured in a wide range of styles to meet your individual needs. Our ears are as differently shaped as the nose on our faces! A custom-fit earmold can make a big difference when blocking out sounds or in hearing more clearly for those who wear hearing aids. These options work to create a secure and comfortable fit, thus protecting your ears from damaging sounds while allowing you to enjoy your favorite activities. These custom-fit earmolds are also excellent for keeping the ear canal dry and healthy for all underwater activities.
