Sound Hearing Clinic Inc offers custom hearing protection in Vancouver. Exposure to excessive noise during work or leisure activities can significantly increase a person's risk of hearing loss and potentially worsen a preexisting hearing problem. Continuous exposure to 85 decibels (dB), for example, noise from loud music either at a concert or via headphones, noise from power tools and heavy machinery, and very sudden loud sounds like an explosion or firing of a gun, can irreversibly damage hair cells in the inner ear that convert sound vibrations into nerve signals that travel to the brain.
The good news is that the damaging noise can usually be avoided by turning down the volume or by wearing quality ear protection. Below are several types of custom-fit hearing protection available at Sound Hearing Clinic Inc that are substantially more effective and more comfortable than poorly fitting generic earplugs.
If you are exposed to continuous noise in your leisure activities or at work, contact us for advice on the latest earplugs and hearing protection methods that will best suit your needs. Get in touch with us for more details or to know more about our hearing products.
