At Northside Hearing Care

We understand the importance of protecting your hearing in noisy environments and enhancing your ability to communicate effectively in various listening situations. That's why we offer a range of custom hearing protection and assistive listening devices to meet your unique needs and lifestyle.

The Importance of Hearing Protection

Exposure to loud noises can damage the delicate structures of the inner ear and lead to permanent hearing loss. Dangerously loud noise can be found at work, during recreational activities, and even in everyday environments. Custom hearing protection can help protect your ears from harmful noise levels while maintaining sound quality and clarity.

Types of Custom Hearing Protection

Custom earplugs are molded to the unique shape of your ear canal, providing a comfortable and secure fit for long-term wear. They are available in different materials and styles to suit your preferences and specific listening needs. Our clinic offers a variety of custom hearing protection options, including:

  • Industrial Earplugs: Custom-designed for industrial environments, these earplugs provide maximum protection against loud machinery, equipment, and industrial noise, ensuring the safety and well-being of workers in high-noise environments. With a comfortable and secure fit, industrial earplugs allow for clear communication and situational awareness while effectively reducing the risk of noise-induced hearing damage.
  • Musician's Earplugs: Designed specifically for musicians and music enthusiasts, musician's earplugs attenuate sound evenly across frequencies, preserving the integrity of the music while reducing its volume to safe levels.
  • Shooter's Earplugs: Ideal for hunters and firearm enthusiasts, shooter's earplugs offer protection from the loud impulse noises generated by guns while allowing for normal conversation and environmental awareness.
  • Swim Earplugs: Waterproof custom swim earplugs create a tight seal to prevent water from entering the ear canal, reducing the risk of swimmer's ear and other water-related ear infections.
  • Sleep Earplugs: Custom-molded sleep earplugs are designed to block out unwanted noise and promote restful sleep, allowing you to wake up feeling refreshed. These soft and comfortable earplugs are ideal for light sleepers, shift workers, or individuals who share sleeping spaces with snorers or noisy neighbors.

Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs)

Northside Hearing Care offers a range of assistive listening devices to enhance your auditory experience in various environments. These devices are designed to improve speech understanding, reduce background noise, and provide clear audio signals in challenging listening situations.

  • FM Systems: FM systems wirelessly transmit audio signals from a microphone to a receiver worn by the listener. This gives you clear and direct sound in classrooms, meetings, and other challenging listening environments.
  • Loop Systems: Loop systems use electromagnetic signals to transmit audio directly to hearing aids equipped with telecoils, enabling individuals to access amplified sound without additional devices.
  • Infrared Systems: Infrared systems deliver audio signals via infrared light to compatible receivers, offering secure and interference-free communication in auditoriums, theaters, and other large venues.
  • Alerting Devices: Alerting devices, such as doorbell and telephone signalers, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and alarm clocks, provide visual or tactile alerts to individuals with hearing loss, ensuring safety and awareness in emergencies.
  • Bluetooth Accessories: Bluetooth accessories enable seamless connectivity between hearing aids and Bluetooth-enabled devices, allowing for hands-free phone calls, audio streaming, and media playback directly to the ears.
  • TV Streamers: TV streamers wirelessly transmit audio from the television to hearing aids, providing enhanced clarity and volume control for television viewing without disturbing others.
  • Captioned Phones: Captioned phones display real-time captions of phone conversations, enabling individuals with hearing loss to read along with spoken dialogue for improved communication and comprehension.

Choosing the Right Device

When choosing hearing protection or ALDs, here are a few things to consider:

  • Hearing Needs: Evaluate your specific hearing needs and preferences, such as the degree of hearing loss or the listening environment.
  • Comfort and Fit: Select devices that offer a comfortable and secure fit for extended wear, considering factors such as size, weight, and ergonomic design.
  • Ease of Use: Look for user-friendly features and controls that simplify operation and adjustment.
  • Durability and Reliability: Opt for high-quality devices that are durable, reliable, and built to last.

Our experienced team will work closely with you to evaluate your hearing needs, lifestyle, and preferences to recommend the most suitable custom hearing protection and assistive listening devices for your needs. We provide personalized fittings, adjustments, and ongoing support to ensure optimal performance and satisfaction with your chosen devices.
