There are a lot of things you can do to protect your hearing. Whether you’re mowing the lawn or in your workshop, you can always wear hearing protection to make sure that you're protecting what hearing you have.

Protection might include the little foam ear plugs you can get at the grocery store, circumaural headphones, which are the ones that go over your ears, or you can come in and we can fit you with custom protection.

If you’re going to concerts or sporting events and you want to be able to appreciate the music or sounds, but still protect your hearing, there are custom and universal hearing protection options that are filtered. These filters allow you to still appreciate the music or sounds, while keeping the level down to a safe volume.
