If you are in noisy environments whether are work or during leisure activities it is important to protect your hearing from noise damage with appropriate earplugs.
Permanent hearing damage can occur if you are exposed to loud noise. This is called Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). In addition, exposure to loud noise can bring on or exacerbate tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
At Melbourne Audiology Centre (MAC) we specialize in making custom earplugs; these are individually shaped to your ears. Compared to "off the shelf" generic ear plugs, they have the advantage of being;
- more comfortable to wear
- long lasting
- easy to insert
- securely fit in the ear
- more discreet
Our audiologists can recommend the right custom earplugs for you and ensure that they will provide you with sufficient protection and also allow you to hear the sounds you need to hear. For example; musicians earplugs allow you to hear the details in the music in a quieter and safer way.

- For people in noisy places at work or leisure
