Earplugs & Hearing Protection
At ONDC we are able to provide custom earplugs for a wide variety of purposes:
Musicians Ear Plugs (Custom-made)Musicians may be exposed to high levels of noise for lengthy periods of time. Whether you play in a band, orchestra or simply play music for recreation, it is important to understand that excessive noise can affect your hearing in the short or longer term. Noise can cause tinnitus (“noises in the ears”) which may be temporary at first. With prolonged or extreme exposure your hearing may be permanently damaged. The effects of noise exposure may not become apparent until later in life. Musicians ear plugs are custom made for the shape of your ears. They contain a special filter that reduces the volume of the sound without distortion. The filter maintains a flat frequency response which means the quality of the sound is maintained. These ear plugs may also be useful for people with sensitivity to sound. These plugs may be useful for children in school bands and people attending loud concerts or nightclubs. ONDC welcomes enquiries from employers.
Noise Protection Ear Plugs (Custom)These custom made ear plugs are for reducing the impact of environmental noise. These plugs are not filtered. They are a full plug. Custom made plugs will fit more securely and comfortably in the ear compared with foam plugs which have a tendency to slip out or feel uncomfortable. Noise protection plugs can be used in industrial settings, noisy work environments or around the home. Noise can cause tinnitus (“noises in the ears”) which may be temporary at first. With prolonged or extreme exposure your hearing may be permanently damaged. The effects of noise exposure may not become apparent until later in life. ONDC welcomes enquiries from employers.
Swimmers Ear Plugs (Custom)Custom earplugs are used by children and adults to keep water out of the ears in cases where there are ventilating tubes, eardrum perforations or chronic ear conditions. For immediate protection we also have a stock of non-customised swimmers plugs available.
Sleep Ear Plugs (Custom)Do you have difficulty sleeping because your partner snores? Are you bothered at night by environmental noise? Custom sleep plugs may give you the relief you need.
