Hearing protection is essential for anyone who is exposed to prolonged noise in the workplace, or doing a hobby that has the potential to damage their hearing e.g. playing loud music, shooting, motorsport. We can provide custom hearing protection that can prevent loud harmful frequencies from damaging your hearing, as well as allowing you to hear important environmental sounds around allowing you to hold a conversation, without the need for bulky over the ear defenders.
A noise exposure of more than 82 dB over 8 hours is enough to cause permanent hearing damage. Every 3 dB thereafter will half the the time that you can be exposed to this level of sound e.g. 85 dB will give you a safe exposure time of 4 hours and 88 dB 2 hours.
All hearing protection has an upper limit of attenuation/sound reduction and any sound over 30db will be heard through your skull, this is know as bone conduction. This means that your earplugs will not make you completely deaf, but will bring you into safer more comfortable level.
