Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Sudden and prolonged exposure to noise can cause damage to the ear resulting in hearing loss. Noise exposure is the leading cause of hearing loss.
Hearing protection is important for anyone who is exposed to loud levels of noise either occupationally or socially. To best protect your hearing, all custom earmolds at our Alexandria Audiology location are made custom to fit the unique contour of your ear. Contact us today to schedule your mold appointment.
Swim plugs are custom made to fit your ear to keep out water while swimming or bathing. These are especially helpful for anyone who is prone to outer ear (“swimmers ear”) infections or any other ear issue where it is pertinent that the ears stay dry. They are also great for keeping out wind and cold. They provide a water-tight seal and float so that they are easily found in water.
Sleep plugs are custom made for your ear for the ultimate comfort in earplugs. They are a very low profile design, which makes them comfortable and perfect to sleep in and block out snoring.
The appointment for the impression is about 15 minutes, and the sleep plugs arrive within 2 weeks.
Custom hearing protection is the most comfortable earplug available. They are an exact mold of your ear canal making them not only comfortable, but efficient at blocking out noise that is harmful to your hearing.
Musician plugs have a special filter in them so that they attenuate harmful noise without distorting sound. This is important for musicians or anyone who needs to hear without distortion that non-filtered earplugs produce.
Government Custom Molds for Monitors
Government molds are popular for government employees such as Secret Service Agents. This is a custom earpiece that comes attached to the proper tubing to attach to a monitor. It is more comfortable over long periods of time than a “one size fits all” mold.
