Many people don’t realize that everyday noises can lead to diminished hearing over time and preventative measures can go a long way toward maintaining healthy hearing. Damage to the delicate parts of your ear begins to occur when we are exposed to noises above 85 decibels, and surprisingly many sounds we regularly hear are over this limit.
Activities like car races, concerts, and hunting can all bring sounds well above the 85 decibel threshold, so we recommend the use of custom earmolds and ear plugs.
At Scallan Hearing Aid & Audiology we also realize that certain hobbies or professions require ear protection, and we have various devices to meet your needs. We sell electronic hearing protection for outdoor recreation and industrial work. We also provide ear monitors for musicians who can’t compromise the quality of their listening experience yet need to maintain their hearing for years to come.
