  • 2. One Size Fits All May be Okay for Your Clothing, but Not for Your Ears
  • 3. The size and shape of our ears is unique as well, which is why it is important to consider custom fit hearing protection devices (HPD)
  • 4. HPDs are devices which attenuate the level of noise reaching an individual’s ears, thereby conserving hearing sensitivity.
  • 5. HPDs are commonly used in industry, where workers are exposed to excessive loud noise levels (over 85 dBA) on a regular basis
  • 6. The most common types of HPD include foam earplugs that are placed in the ear canal and earmuffs which fit over the outside of the ear.
  • 7. One major drawback to using foam earplugs is that these devices are available in limited sizes such as small, medium, and large, making a custom fit impossible
  • 8. Earmuffs may have an advantage over foam earplugs because they fit over the ear and thus fit is not necessarily a concern
  • 9. Custom HPDs are the best option for workers desiring a comfortable fit that will ensure an appropriate NRR
