Hearing Protection Devices

Personal protective gear for hearing loss prevention, hearing safety, or for blocking any unwanted noise. Several types of hearing protection devices are available.

For many kinds of noise problems, a general-purpose hearing protector is a great solution. These include:

All of these devices are designed to reduce the noise reaching your ears, thereby protecting your ears from damage and preventing hearing loss. They are all similarly effective, so your choice of which type(s) to use can be based on your own needs and preferences. For extra noise reduction, you can double up and wear ear plugs and ear muffs at the same time.

They are recommended for a wide variety of settings and activities where hearing safety is an issue, including:
  • Factories
  • Construction work
  • Hunting and shooting
  • Riding motorcycles
  • Concerts and nightclubs
  • Playing a musical instrument

Even in situations where the sound does not reach levels that endanger your hearing, these devices are very handy if you just want to block an annoying noise, such as the sound of someone snoring when you're trying to sleep.
