Custom hearing protection for hunters

Hearing Protection for Hunters, Factory Workers, Musicians, Athletes and More

It is pretty simple; hearing protection helps prevent hearing loss. While loud noise exposure can cause temporary hearing changes such as ringing in the ears, or even a stuffed-up feeling, continuous and repetitive exposure to loud noises can cause permanent and irreversible hearing loss. Even worse, you may even develop tinnitus or ringing in the ear. Some workplaces and/or recreational activities can expose you to loud noises every day. Let us help you find custom hearing protection that will enable you to continue your activities in comfort while being fully protected.

For many of us here in Treasure Valley, outdoor activities can be debilitating. That’s why we always recommend hunters use specialized hearing protection for shooting. But hearing protection is also imperative for many activities outside of loud and noisy environments. For example, swimmers can use earplugs to create a water-tight seal preventing Swimmer’s Ear.

And for the outdoorsman, custom earmolds and earplugs can also provide protection from wind, sand, ice, snow, and rain. Hearing protection can also be of use to professions where you need to hear what’s going on but can lower or attenuate the loud sounds coming in like for dentists, waiters, or bartenders.

There are an abundance of uses for hearing protection that can have an immediate impact on your life today, as well as your future hearing health.

Types of Custom Ear Plugs

Though over-the-counter earplugs offer some hearing protection, custom earmolds and earplugs offer maximum protection and a comfortable fit that is designed specifically for your ears. Custom options obtained from a hearing professional offer more peace of mind knowing that your ears have the best possible protection against hearing loss.

Below are some of the types and uses for our custom hearing protection offerings:

Hunting

These are great when used for hunting, shooting, and sudden noise. A filter instantaneously closes when damaging noise levels are reached, and they allow essentially normal hearing at all other times.

Music

Ideal for performing musicians and concert-goers, these are also great for flight attendants, bartenders, waiters, and dental professionals. They allow the wearer to hear sounds accurately, but at reduced levels. Three filter options are available: 9dB, 15dB, or 25dB.

Swimming

These are great for swimming and showering – and they float! They also provide superb noise reduction to help prevent hearing loss.

Sleep

These provide comfortable and uninterrupted rest. Also great for shift workers with non-traditional hours.

Motorsport

These are designed with a hollow canal for under-helmet use to reduce wind buffering.

Custom

These are great for use with any bud/button style earphones, reducing outside noise pollution and enabling a lower volume to be able to hear your music!

Occupational

These are ideal for high-noise industrial environments.

Defendear Hunter

This device offers standard digital features and provides protection in windy environments.

Defendear 1

These provide amplification for situational awareness, as well as noise attenuation when you pull the trigger.

Defendear 2

This hearing protection offers two modes: game, which is optimized for intermittent shots, and clay mode, which is optimized for continued shots.

Watersports

Perfect for your next trip to Lucky Peak, these are designed to prevent Surfer’s Ear and Swimmer’s Ear caused by exposure to cold water and wind. These are incredibly useful for boating, riding a jet ski, or water skiing!

The buoyant material is molded with a sealed membrane spanning the sound bore that keeps cold water and air out of the ear canal but allows for conversation and quality hearing while in the ear.
